Unfortunately it never lasts long here but I was appreciative none the less....
I FINISHed the cloth for my girlfriend....now I just need to wrap it, write her a nice card and get it in the mail..........
I FINISHed the leg on sock #1 of my Christmas Eve Cast On socks and started on the leg of sock #2...this yarn is almost more than fingering weight but it is so nice and sturdy! It will make a wonderfully warm pair of socks for sure.
I started another 'little' project that I've been wanting to do for awhile now and that is little felted hearts that I will fill with lavender once I get the lavender...........I'm just using some leftover Noro Kureon yarn that I had. It is a Susan B. Anderson free pattern on Ravelry and you join using 2 dpn's and the 3rd for knitting onto....that threw me as I am used to having 3 needles with the 4th to knit with. I finally got the hang of it after a few tries. It seems I always have to restart several times on new patterns....why that is I do not know but it happens a lot!
This is what they are supposed to look like when done.........
I also finally got to try something I have been wanting to do for a long, long time.....soap making!
I've had all the materials for awhile now...in fact, I was going to make Thanksgiving soaps and then Christmas soaps but alas it never materialized but today....I made soap!
I looked for awhile for a recipe that did not use lye as I did not want to mess with that stuff!
This was so easy and no fuss , no muss and look at my Lavender Rosemary Soap...........it has to sit for 2 hours and then you take it out of the silicone mold (no sticking) and cut it into bars. Now, I am going to try other 'flavors'. I'm thinking it will be great for gifts and I will probably include a bar with the wash cloth for my friend.....nice combo gift huh? This is one of the easiest crafts I have ever done and finished in one day! LOL! It smells divine too!
Last but not least....here's what Miss Peeps was up to this morning..........I think maybe she was cold...lol!
