Crafting and the Sick



OK, here's the scoop. Being sick and being crafty just don't mix for me. I hardly did anything at all while on vacation craftwise and it wasn't because I was too busy. I was not well enough to do much of anything. I did one small project. I did, however, manage to hit a yarn shop and think of a way to solve a "problem" I was having with myself. I didn't like the finished look of some projects so I started thinking of how to "fix" it and make the end product look better. Oh my, did I ever! I am extremely happy with the result. Unfortunately for everyone else, you can't see it because it's for Christmas presents! I wish I were working on something OTHER than presents for Christmas because then I could post pictures. I will, however, post a picture of Matt's last afghan when I finish it.

In the meantime, please enjoy these pictures of some of the yarn I purchased at the yarn shop in New Hampshire. Yes, greedy little me... that was one of my birthday presents to myself. What yummy blues! All hand dyed! All from New Hampshire! I cannot decide what to do but feel that felted bowls would be not enough. Patterns/suggestions anyone?

    Ooooh what pretty yarn! Can you give a little bit of detail? (yardage, weight, fiber content)

    Love the yarn! I have some thoughts on patterns, but need info on your yarn (suggested needle size, etc). I vote that you make something for YOU. How about a pair of the slipper socks (I am making 5 freakin' pair of them). Very quick - knit "flat" and then sewn up - check out Knit Wits's blog for a picture. Glad your back home!!
