I worked on the 3rd of 16 stars but didn't get it finished....I was so tired I couldn't even knit or cross stitch! LOL!
Yesterday I worked on the "hand" by Blackbird Designs...............I finished the 2nd heart...
I worked on Betty Glover last Sunday and will today.....it probably doesn't look much different as I am working on the border.........
My daughter asked me to make her a fox scarf so the yarn and needles are ordered and here is a picture..........I ran out of colored ink in the printer but hers will be orange and white.......this pattern includes child and adult sizes..........I'm looking forward to knitting it.
I also grabbed some other patterns this week as it got me in the mood for making gifts for Birthdays/Christmas or at least gathering the patterns and materials........this is a Tin Can Knits pattern and I have been wanting to try color work. This pattern looked fairly simple and I have heard Tin Can Knits patterns are very clear and understandable. Plus they were having a 2 for 1 sale!
so here's the 2nd pattern.............also, their patterns contain all sizes from infant to adult..........
Several of the next patterns were enabled by fellow YOPers...you know who you are! This is the Rasta and what I loved about it was the fact that it is 1 skein and 1 hour! Really? Even 2 hours would be fine with me! I think this will be THE featured gift this coming Christmas!
Then there were these delightful and gorgeous socks that someone was making! LOVE! Was it you Lucy? Adorable! You use leftover sock yarn or buy some new mini-skeins. They might be next years Christmas Eve cast on.
I downloaded this pattern for $5 which includes all 3 patterns! She's on Etsy.
Surprise! I found this when I was going through my "stuff" and it has the material and the floss and everything! It is linen though which I am hesitant of after the black cat fiasco. But everyone else manages it so I will forge ahead!
Last but not least.......I am not a cake eater but all of a sudden I am wanting cake...not just any old cake but a really delicious cake....no Cool Whip for this gal! LOL!
One of the XS designers....was it Brenda Gervais? She had a birthday and her cake (on IG) was a gorgeous white cake with light pink frosting and it was Raspberry Buttercream frosted almond cake......I found a similar recipe but of course, I don't have the ingredients...but I think there is going to be a cake in my future! This recipe is on Sugarspiceslife.com
I hope you are safe and well and that you have found things to inspire and delight you this past week!
