Our everyday dishes have bluebirds too. . . guess I'm a little obsessed.
Can you see him?
Hello Foxy ^v^. Come for tea?
Don't you miss all the sparkly when the Christmas decorations are put away? I do, so I've been playing around with lights and sparkle that can stay up year 'round.
More birds . . . and a fairy.
So anyway, I hesitantly join Yarn Along (thank you Ginny) this week, as my knitting lately has been pretty dismal and not yarning along well at all. The Chaleur (from last week's Yarn Along) refused to cooperate with me. I finally got mad at it and put it away -- for now.
And a ribbed infinity cowl I made (that I really liked) refused to block and insists on drawing up into a wormy looking little thing.
So, I decided to make some mittens as a Valentine's Day gift (inspired by these). I wanted to add a little intarsia, but that's not working out very well and they're huge, so I guess I'll finish them and call them prototypes. At least I can say I've found some yarn I like recently. I've been loving marled yarns lately (as you can see) and both the blue and brown marl were found at Hobby Lobby the other day. The brown is 'I Love This Wool'. It's inexpensive and feels pretty good -- especially good for hard wearing things like mittens. And the blue is a cotton blend from Bernat. I think it's called Denim. It's very soft next to the skin and would probably be nice for kids things.
And reading for this week is the same as last week -- "The Magic Apple Tree" and "Mandy" are sweet charming books and I'm loving both of them.
So, I'm going to hop over to Ginny's and see what good things are going on with all the lovely knitting readers this week. Bye for now. . .
