Summer projects

Well it has been a long time since I posted anything.  I was very busy with our County Fair this year and being a 4-H leader didn’t make it any easier. 😀  Breezy did quite well.  Two of her items for fiber arts won champion ribbons and went to our State Fair and received blue ribbons there.  She did a display board on Loom Knitting which earned her a champion ribbon locally. She loom knit a hat with her handspun yarn and received a champion ribbon as well.  I’ll try and post pictures of them as soon as I get them taken.

She did another display board on rabbit diseases and used electricity (which they learned how to do in class last year) to let a person know if they had gotten their answer right.  It turned out really well and a picture of it actually made it into our local paper.  Boy was she surprised.  Well enough about my daughter.

I did manage to make a few of the pinwheel dishcloths that Isela has in the Fall 2008 issue of Loom Knitters Circle.  They are so much fun to make and my husband actually likes these.  I also tried Denise’s Mitered Dishcloth and that was also a lot of fun to make.  As I was making ths cloth, I thought it would be fun to make a scarf or a sweater using the mitered squares.  Oh the creative juices are flowing again.  Sorry about the poor pictures…they were taken from my phone as my camera broke. 

Speaking of creative juices, I have been working on designs for the 2009 Loom Knit Calendar bewteen canning salsa and beans.  To give you a little hint as to what will be in the calendar, expect to see a little bit of lace, cables and knit and purl combos.  I am hoping to have it ready for download the end of this month.  I’ll keep you posted.  I also have some other designs knit up, just need to write and chart the instructions.  Designs include seahorses, hummingbird, owl, desert scene and I forget what else. 🙂 I’ll post when I get them done.

I have also been busy trying to earn points to buy stuff on Amazon.  All it does is take a little bit of time and it’s fun.  I plan on buying some stuff for Christmas this way.  You can even buy yarn this way and not have to spend a cent.  Check it out and signup if interested!  Points2Shop 

Have a great rest of the week and weekend everyone!


And the winner is….

The day you have been waiting for to find out who guessed the right amount of dishcloths in the stack….well, I have 2 winners who guessed the correct amount.  19 dishcloths!  Keggy will be receiving the printed copy and Kansas will be receiving the downloadable copy.  Thank you all for playing it was fun! 

On the crafting/looming side, I was lucky enough to test knit a pattern for the March LAL on Ravelry’s Loomin Dishcloths group for Karen G.  We are doing colorwork for March and the pattern she has designed is sooo cute!  I’ll post a picture of the cloths as soon as I get her okay to (and I get them finished)

Have a great weekend!
