I am out of the house, so I don't have my photos with me, but I thought I'd do a wee update and tell you what I'm working on. photos when I come home!
On the needles:
I am knitting a hat for my hubby. I'm making it from bought alpaca and an unraveled cotton sweater. This is the first wearable project I'm making from a pattern! I've had to frog it once already. it was far too big, even with the recommended yarn type and needles. oh well! He asked for one with a brim so he can duck his head and block the wind/snow from his eyes.
I've got some arm tubes for my step dad. I'm using yummy naturally grey alpaca, and unraveled alpaca/acrylic red for a wee spiral at he bottom. I'm making it up as I go, and I'm on the second one, so I hope I can remember what did the first time!! I also hope they fit...I have NO idea how big his hands are...
and 3rd on the needles is a Mario Mushroom for my step son. I'm going to try and make it into a key chain.
oh, and off the needles, I have an un-finished elephant for my friends who are about to have a baby. Need to finish it asap...the shower is in a couple weeks. She still needs foot pads and an ear.
I also want to knit dish clothes for my dad's Christmas present...but he's away until Feb. so they can wait.
I just finished a diaper bag for the same couple having a baby. I LOVE it. and I want to keep it...but that is how I know it's a good thing and should go out into the big world.
I'm making Yo-Yos for my family for Christmas decorations. here are Yo-Yos : http://sewing.about.com/od/embellishment/ss/basicyoyo.htm
I'm putting bottons in the middle, and ribbon to hang them.
And for the craft show I'm making my bookmarks, patches, t-shirts and li'l scrappers. *deep breath!*
