Hello dear readers. Since taking the month off for photography it’s slipped my mind that maybe I should post something anyway…until now. I’ve been working on a few knitting projects but I can’t share them just yet. I can show what I did make over the winter for some friends who were had a baby at the end of April.
Teddy. He was knit with alpaca. Yay I’m not allergic!!
I had made a few coffee cup sleeves for holiday gifts.
My latest project that I finished last night was a washcloth. I got the yarn (Martha Stewart’s cotton-hemp) on clearance and glad I did because it was a PIA casting on and binding off. Splitty as all get out. Oh there was a dishcloth in there as well that I did.
I’ve finally tried i-cord. Man, why was I so scared? It’s so fun! I already have ideas brewing for holiday gifts. Yeah, I know it’s only May. I’m so slow because of my hands so I need to start as soon as possible.
We went to The Cakery today and met up with some friends. We all thought they were going to be closing for good. It turns out they will be opening again in a few weeks under new management! So what we thought was going to be bittersweet occasion turned out to be a happy one. Perfect ending of my birthday weekend.
I had a lovely afternoon with Harry. We had lunch, did some shopping, had fika, went for a walk in Lincoln Woods where we heard lots of birds chirping and had supper. The weather, while a little cooler than I prefer, was lovely. Also, Harry’s great. He got me chocolate cake.
Today’s original theme was childhood, which I guess in a way works with it being my birthday.
