Friday I returned from a week with my parents in the North Woods of Wisconsin. I did quite a bit of project finishing, in between the fishing and boating, and "Illinois" fire building. There's a new album in the photo albums, so check it out! Lots of fun times.
I finally finished Mom's CPH-- she wanted pockets, so I've added those, and am going to add a bit of orange trim to them soon. (Tweaking. The wonders of living with the person who knits for you.) I've got lots of wonderful pictures of her wearing the sweater.
Sometime last summer, I made the mistake of starting the Boobholder pattern in Malabrigo... I know, I know, stupid idea, right? Warm wonderful wool in the midst of muggy, hot Chicago summers. Needless to say, it landed in the realm of forgotten projects. Well, I brought it with to Minocqua, since the weather is usually much cooler there. It's finished! Well, almost. Just have to sew in the ends, and then put it back into the closet until Autumn when I can wear it. Haha.
I started a backless halter top for my sister, with eyelets for criss-crossed ribbon in the back. It's a really simple, but cute design. I'll have it up for sale soon. :)
A quick, neat knit that I finished is the Formal Boot Bag from Bag Style. It was a commission for my friend Nicole, and it turned out perfectly. I'll have photos of that within the week. It's done in the Tahki Donegal Tweed, in this deep, dark green with the unfelted panel on it in a bright lime green. The buttons are little silver spirals and the handle is actually a choke-collar that I bought from the pet aisle at the dollar store!
Just a quick sum up. :)
Oh! A woman purchased four of my Little Greenies Dolls to sell at a craft fair in PA, in August! It's a sale, and good PR! I'm sending along a batch of business cards to give out to anyone who's interested. I'm so excited!
That's about all for now. Dad's BBQ is going on downstairs so I should return. :)
