Just Stuff...........

Whew................ I've been fussing with blogger all morning.............. oh well............ all is good now!
Okay............. so today... I'm going to just have a little show & share time here of things I'm working on.

Well... here is the trial sweater I have been working on. I have the body done and have started one of the sleeves. So far........ so good!

Now here we have a try at a pair of mittens. You see.. my my most sweet ... wonderful.. loving .. giving Aunt who taught me to knit and crochet when I was very young... makes mittens for all kinds of charity and gift giving. I love them!! So yesterday when I was talking to her on the phone..........she started rattling off the pattern. Well... I grabbed my pen and pad and jotted down as fast and as much as I could. I was determine to make a pair. I took a skein of yarn.. my needles and very scratchy pattern with me when I went to get the boys from school. While I sat in the parking lot waiting for them to get out of school........ and through deciphering my notes... this is how my mitten started to look. Now........... my Aunt is going to look at this picture and possibly go.......?????????? huh?????????? because I think I did the thumb different. I wrote that pattern all over in no order on a little note pad. So for me to actually get this........ I was pretty happy. This is what I had done while waiting for the boys.

This is one finished mitt. I will most likely start the other one today while waiting for the boys again. :)

Okay........... now this brings us to my last show & share for today.
This is a Teddy Bear baby blanket done in Filet Crochet.
After getting the picture loaded on here... I realized this is the back of the blanket. *sigh* Oh well..........its the same on the other side... hehehe. I still have ribbon I want to weave through the outside edges of the blanket.. then it will be complete.

Well... there you have it! Some fun things I'm working on right now! :)
You all have a GREAT day! & blessings,

Beautiful work! You don't want to make a pair of mittens for blaze do you?!!? I would pay for them!

thank you my dear!
so..... what color would that sweet little 2yr old want?

Shana said...

Hmmm, not sure if we should go with something that would match a bunch of stuff or something I really like. Orange (like burnt orange) or black or brown. Or grey. Can you tell I am confused?? Probably brown would be best because i have a scarf and hat that would match. But the other colors match another hat and scarf set he has. What do you think? Orange wouldn't go with as many things so I think it is out. One of the other colors...surprise me. I can't make a decision. ;-)
