Crafting Time

This week blew by.  I can’t believe it’s Friday already.  I must be in a high creative time because I’ve been crafting up a storm lately.  Here’s some examples – 175 yards of Aran to bulky weight of lovely CormoX – Pia.  I want to make the Truly Tasha Shawl.  I’m thinking this is going to be good.  It may be a little heavier, but it will be gorgeous.

Then I finally got around to making my iPod Touch cozy.  Basically worsted weight yarn, size 8 needles.  Cast on 40sts and join in the round.  Knit 2 to 2.5 inches and do some eyelets with a double YO.  I came back and knit into the back and make nice big holes for the i-cord.  Then I knit till it was long enough and k2tog around and around until I had 3 stitches and then sliped the yarn on a blunt  needle and bound off.  Simple.  Then I knit the eye cord and then put it through the holes and bound off.

Also, look at this gorgeous watercolor Julie sent me.  Looks just like Chrissy.  Big thanks to Julie.  I’m off to get a frame to put it in my craft room.  I miss that little stinker bunches. 🙂

There’s also been crochet and more embroidery… but I’ll get to that later.

  • Your spinning is beautiful! Will you dye the shawl or the yarn? I need to do more with my different talents. Maybe I’ll do some sewing and embroidery soon, too.
