Vintage finds while shopping with my sister. Spool knitters are my weakness. I think they are fun to own. And fun to find in vintage stores.
My sister came for a visit (in August) and she brought her vintage beaded necklaces with her! This is one I chose, from quite an assortment! A turtle, hearts and crystals! She enjoys going out to 2nd hand stores and picking up vintage necklaces. The washes the beads + findings, then puts them back together with a creative twist!
I've had this kit (from Stitches Midwest) and decided I should finish it! I think I'm 75-80% done. The lace knitting slows me down - the results are beautiful! Angela's Dream Scarf by Jeanette Estee Famulari
This was a class - taken at the Local Knitting Store.
I started my 2nd Mosaic knitted bag. The first one I knitted came out so nice -- and I had extra yarn for a 2nd one. Colors will be similar. Pattern is Mosaic Bag by Cindy Walker. Yarn I am using is Erika Knight British Blue Wool.
The last two knitting classes I've taken, at the local knitting store, were taught by Laura Ricketts. The subject: Twined Knitting.
Such a treat to have Laura's twined knitted pieces in hand. It is a beautiful technique. Awesome color and texture. We learned to use z-spun yarn and create braids and the crook stitch.
The "F" word --- yes, finished. Woolenberry's Hearald wrap.
This one took awhile. I would do a few rows, set it aside. Knit a few rows, set it aside. The store in Bloomington, Indiana closed - I'm not sure where to find more of this yarn. It is a dream to knit with.
I've continued the lace edge from Piecework Magazine. it is called Lace No. 10 -- from Mary Elizabeth's 1935 book. I submitted a photo & it was published in the April issue!
Our DD's kitty enjoys the KnitPicks bag from
Stitches Midwest. This cat cannot ignore a tote!
These stitch markers were a 'win' from the Stitches Midwest Scavenger Hunt. I enjoy going + seeing all the new patterns and yarns. And toys!!! It is great to find a bargain here-n-there.
This past Spring, I made a few dish dresses for girlfriends. A fun addition to most kitchens during spring cleaning!
