more catch up.......

Ok, back to the blogging thing... I saved this as a draft a while ago and never got around to typing in any descriptions of the picture.

First, here is aWHOLE BUNCH of stitch markers, knit & crochet plus some funky row counters.
I love playing with beads.

Next here is a bath mat from the book One Skein. Fun, fast and functional!

And here is my very own pattern for coasters in a case! Free with yarn purchase if you go to Technicolor Sheep!

Last here is a beret style cap and swatch ..... I just made up the pattern as I went along.... looks cute with the braid and tassle.

Having a cuddle

Here is a recent picture of Jake& Gunnar cuddling on the floor. I CANNOT BELIEVE how fast Gunnar has grown! He weighs more than Jake now. And so smart! He is the smartest puppy in the world!

Needles, ?? sorry, I didn't write that down.

4. Felted clogs (Fiber Trends Pattern) for DH. a second pair in Steelers colors.

No the holes did not work as well as I had hoped. I even
test swatched! Bleh. Oh well, just not as much "venting" as he had hoped.
