I forgot to show you Pam's scarf

I didn't want her to see it and thus didn't post it. Of course I forgot to do it yesterday. Oh, well my head is full of junk and thinking isn't my forte right now.

I have rediscovered scrapbooking....digitally!

All the paper and stuff was just too much for me. Too messy. Too much room. Too expensive.

But look what I can do on my computer

Click Me

Takes just a couple of minutes with some purchased premade graphics ($2 for the graphics kit)

Felted mocs

I love felted mocs. Specifically I love LTK felted mocs.

Here are some that I've made

Before felting

And after

I got some Lamb's Pride today to make some more.

Woo hoo!

okay, I'll have to get more pics taken later to add. I'm just so happy its finally working.

I'm really into fingerless gloves so I'm making lots of those for gifts. I've finished one blue pair. A red pair for me. I'm working on some from recycled yarn (an old maternity sweater or mine).

The yarn is a 3 ply with brown, pink and brick red. I've got a lot so I think I'll make the mitten/fingerless gloves and a matching hat. Then I'll hord the rest for later.

I'm going to a MOMS club Christmas party that has a gift exchange. I'm thinking of putting together a learn to knit kit with some things I already have, except I'll need to buy needles as I won't give any of mine away! I've got some Cascade Encore in hot pink so I'll print off some online instructions for making a garter stitch scarf, put that in the bag with the needles and yarn and maybe a small lotion sample. I've got this cool translucent bag I can put it all in and maybe print off a label on my computer for the outside of the bag.

Should I get some stubby staight needles or circulars?

Let's try this again

I've not posted here in a while because I got so frustrated with it.

Here are some items I've made as gifts.

my experimentation with felted Cascade 220 (it really felts!)
