Easy Knitting In Progress (Hey, I’ve just learned to knit.)

  1. Smooshy purple baby sweater (about 1/2 finished)
  2. 3rd flap hat (Mauve with purple, lime, and blue stripes)
  3. Socks!

Knitting I’ve Finished!

  1. Flap Hat (Red/Gray)
  2. Flap Hat (Lime w/ blue, purple and mauve stripes)
  3. Pink cotton baby hat
  4. Blue Berrocco Alpaca / Wool flap hat for Karan
  5. Malabrigo worsted flap hat for Jamie
  6. Noro Taiyo scarf

Knitting I Want to Start

  1. More socks!
  2. A wrap knit with Mini Mochi
  3. A fun scarf knit with more Malabrigo worsted (just added two hanks to my stash)
  4. Oh, and did I say I have a cute pattern for some simple baby hats… and socks to match?

Other odds and ends

  1. I have several samplers and other needlework pieces that need to have frames made. I have purchased and ripped some cherry, walnut, and birdseye maple which are ready to be turned into moulding for frames.
  2. I have a wool felt penny rug kit I’m dying to start.  I think that will be a Thanksgiving project, if not sooner.
  3. And, I have been collecting just a bit of fabric and quilt kits for a while. Knowing that someday I would actually sit down at the sewing machine and put some of these things together!
  4. I have a 20 X 35 foot garden space that I use for veggies each year.  And, I’m taking a class on how to build a solar greenhouse… so maybe I’ll build one of those this year.
  5. Did I tell you I have tools?  I would love to take a woodworking class to learn how to make my own kitchen cabinets.  I mean a real class.  I’ve learned all I can from Norm at the Yankee Workshop.
  6. Oh, and I have an SLR camera and I took a really fun black and white film photography class.  I’m saving for a D-SLR.  But, for now my Canon point and shoot is doing a good job for what I need.

Bottom line… not enough money or time, but plenty of projects and “want to do’s”!

    Just wanted to say thanks for the pics you took of Karan and the Stone family. They all came out great. I downloaded them of the net.

    Love, Dad

    “Off” the net, that is . . .

    Several of your WIP’s or wanna starts are the same as mine. My mother did Mouline Rouge and I chose her colors which turned out amazing. We chose a Zweigart fabric…I think similar to Putty. Then she did it in Gloriana’s Slate Green. I MUST get a photo posted. Look forward to seeing yours.
