There's not gobs of progress this week because there were the roofers, I did my taxes and I researched and ordered a new t.v. as I have been without one for a few weeks now, plus, I mowed. The t.v. will be here Tuesday! I got a 50 inch screen as I kept getting out of bed to see the menu's and/or words on my t.v. . I also researched the distance from the t.v. versus the screen size and no wonder! I was supposed to have a 50 inch screen and mine was 29! LOL! Hopefully, I won't have to get out of bed anymore to read things on the screen.
FO's - (Finished Objects) - none this week
WIP's (Works in Progress) -
1) I did work some on my 2nd felted slipper and the bottom of the foot is almost done.........it is so dark today because of the rain so I hope you can see things............
#1 - Some Valentine's Day socks - I'll be dyeing my own for this!
#2 - Something for St. Patrick's Day...socks or cowl...not sure. I think I found a cowl pattern with a Celtic design but I would like socks too!
#3 - Still more washcloths as I have plenty of Dishie and Peaches and Creme worsted cotton
#4 - Some leaf book markers
What I'm "wishing upon a star" for -
#1 - My Valentine and St. Patrick's Day yarns for socks or cowls and mini's for cowl and Granny Stripe Blanket. I'm thinking I can dye my own now! How exciting!!!!
#2 - Susan B. Anderson has her 2 kits back in stock..........The Loopy Sheep
and her Spring Chicken kits just in time for Spring but where do I get the dough for all these great items?
#3 - my new over the top obsession I discovered from Little Bobbin's mother who does the most beautiful stitchery from Jesse Chorley
I'd like to do her Friendship Quilt if I live long enough! LOL! I may try just a little sampler on my own but check out her website for lots of other wonderful and unique items and projects.
#4 - Knitting at the Library Cowl - a pay for pattern on Ravelry. I'm thinking this may be the year of cowls or slippers....we'll see who wins out! The cowl looks like different shelves of books! So cool!
#5 - A crochet square blocker either a DIY or to buy.......anyone have any experience with these or recommendations? I saw this Crochet blocker with instructions to make and it looks pretty simple
You just need wooden shish-kabob skewers and a gardening knee pad.
#6 - Sewing book like Simply Summer Street has
