My life is all about string.
Guitar strings in the summer.
Yarn strings in the winter.
My co-worker commissioned a pair of fingerless gloves for his Halloween costume: he went as Bofur the dwarf from the recent Hobbit movie. I used stash yarn: a spare ball of Paton's Classic Wool, and size 5 needles. I used 7's at first, because my gauge swatch LIED.... those came out huge, especially after blocking. The pattern I used can be found here
In return he made a lovely dream catcher for me, with a real coyote tooth, an arrowhead and white horse hair from one of his neighbor's horses.
My son really got a kick out of the dream catcher, and I had to put it up HIGH so he'd quit pulling the horse tail!!
What else have I been working on?
A plain garter stitch scarf for my
boyfriend's daughter. It's striped and reminds me of a neopolotin ice
cream, even though it's like blue and brown. Also a hat for her, but it
came out less slouchy than I'd planned so I'm going to work from the top
down now and do some short rows... I have no idea how that one's going
to work out.
My mom has a sweater in my closet that I'm hoping I can
find my pattern notes for soon, since it's supposed to be her Christmas
Oh and I've been trying to draw, but I'm learning just how much I don't know about it!! I did this one of my best friend and I.
My life goes on!
