Another Picture

Finally here's the picture of the cool birthday presents from Heather. The pompom maker is to the left with the booklet of projects on the right. In front of the booklet is the cool yarn and inbetween are the really neat note cards. Lucky me! Thanks again Heather!

Busy Afternoon

Ok it is already way past my bedtime but I am going to try to get at least part of this done tonight. This was one VERY busy afternoon! The KC (Knitting Circle) got together and there were a bunch of us - Linda, Heather, Brooke, me, Irene, Roni, Julie and Gundi (oh forgive me if I've spelled it wrong - I'm tired!). Some of us were learning the Mary Jane slippers (crocheted and felted) from Gundi and other were doing other things. To the left is a picture of the bottom of the right sole that I started today and quite frankly, based on the picture doesn't look like much of anything. Don't worry - if I ever get back to it and finish it (and the second), I will post pictures of the end product so you can see what it really looks like. We also had a combination birthday party for Linda and myself. My birthday was earlier this month and Linda's is Wednesday. The sweet members of the KC gave me a gift certificate to the LYS which I promptly used and there is only a little left. :) Here's a picture of the yarn and needles I purchased. I have a project in mind once I get the pattern. Ignore the upside down label... I told you... I'm tired!

OK the final picture is what my friend Heather gave me for my birthday. I am severely diabled when it comes to making pompoms. I have never been able to. I even told Heather that I am missing the pompom gene (do not ask me about jello!). She gave me this really cool pompom maker that I think is fool-proof. Yes, I'm a fool. And some gorgeous notecards which I adore and some really cool funky yarn. I hope this picture will fit in here But apparently blogger is done with enabling me to put pictures in this post so I will put it in another. :)
