Caroline my dress form has started to complain about her work load. She told me she feels like the photo shoots are a little too frequent lately. She wants to, "join a union" and, "get paid time off". I reminded her that she has a nice warm home to live in, and that she would be bored if I didn't drape something on her and take her photo, and of course she is lucky to not be living in a box at Joann Fabrics. Then I preceded to show her all the rain that we are having outside and told her she could be like other models and have to work in, "that!" She has now quieted down a bit. Sassy dress forms are not what I need right now.
Please note the project above that has created all the fuss, a simple Queen Anne's Lace Scarf made from some of the remainder of my Interlacements, Grape Harvest yarn. I guess this is my go to scarf pattern as it is fun to make and crochets up very fast.
Here is a look at the yarn featured in weaving and crochet. I think it is fun to see how it works with both projects. I will be sending this scarf to my SIL, yes the one I thought about sending the shawl/table runner to. She is a wonderful woman and we are approaching the two year anniversary of my BIL's death. I just want her to know I am thinking about her.
I still have enough yarn over to make another scarf which I started last night. This is a very soft yarn, and it makes as lovely of a scarf as it does a table runner/shawl. I just wish I knew which Interlacements yarn this is as there was no name on the label, just the color Grape Harvest. I am trying to use up this beautiful yarn so I add nothing to my stash.
Today I got home from work, put Little Buddy to bed for a nap, and had time to warp up my loom, after doing my paperwork of course. I am going for a very simple soft pink scarf.
This is Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo yarn I bought when my favorite yarn store in Tampa closed. It was a good 40 or 50% off when I bought it so it was a bargain. I have used this yarn before and I love it. It is indeed soft and snuggly! I hope to whip this up this weekend. Hopefully the rain stays around a while which will give me the excuse to stay inside and play.
When I arrived home from work and sat down at my desk to do my paperwork this is what I found. Not a good sign is it? Thank goodness it isn't a real sheep! This little one has been righted and is now standing on all four legs. Hope it isn't and omen of some kind!
Happy Thursday Everyone.
