update

I have been a bad updater. So many things going on this week. My mind is in a million places. Good and frustrating. But whose isn't?

Anyway...here are the 2nd pair of Fetching Gloves as promised.



They didn't come out as I wanted. On my 1st pair, I adapted the pattern a little and added a cable (extra rows) at the wrist and knuckle. Well...I intended to do the same with this pair. So when I finished the first glove I couldn't figure out why it was so small. Actually it was about the size it would have been had I followed the pattern exactly...except with all cables. Then...

I realized I left out a whole line of the pattern. 18 rows to be exact! I had put my knitting down one night and when I picked it up the next day I missed that row!

Ooops!


So I made the second glove to match. Now on to my 3rd pair with this same yarn in the length I wanted! I do love the yarn's changing colors...

I also finished this cute little Premie hat this week for a charity my LYS is supporting...



I photographed it next to an apple for size comparison. It is so little! Amazing.

I also finished a few more of the 52Q ATC's I had been working on...this batch has just straight journaling on the back so I just photographed the fronts of the cards...

Week #7: What would you do if you knew you could not fail? (Acrylics, Somerset Studio clip art butterfly, Sharpie, brown ink)

Week #8: What was the last thing that made you laugh out loud? (watercolor pencils, white out, black pen, Stamp It square & rectangle stamps, Memory Box bird stamps, black ink)


Week #9:What was the last brave thing I did? (letter stamps, watercolor pencils, Somerset Studio buttefly clipart)

Well I'm off (hopefully) soon on a "date day" with Cary.

Happy Friday!
