The EZ Pi Shawl is finished… re-dyed…blocked.. Ask me how happy that makes me…lol The re-dye was done with green Kool Aid and there are some yellow highlights, but not as much as this picture shows. This was done using handspun mixed wool and corriedale singles. The edging was done in a cluster stitch crochet and it helped immensely with the rolling of the stockinette stitch bind off that I did… like a real knitting newbie…lol I have to say that I am very happy to be finished with this… For the longest time I really, really wanted to know how to knit… What I didn’t realize was that I already new how… duh… Just had never put those knits and purls together in a pattern! Now it seems I can’t stop!
We will finally be seeing Baby Hannah soon. I am almost beside myself with all the waiting.. sigh I spent yesterday out in my workroom.. and this is what I have come up with…
Now what is that????
Birdie wants to see…
This little book is something I have wanted to do for a long time. It was easy to do, but took a while since everything is appliqued …. so very worth the time spent. It is totally washable, the pages won’t tear and hopefully she will have it for a very long time.
The little bird was made yesterday using the pattern for Little Bluebird found here.. on the Spool website. I wanted to make her a toy she could hold on to… and this little bird is just the thing. It will fit right into her little hand.
