I was able to find the yarn that I was lacking to finish the felted helmet hat that I had started last year. It only took me about an hour to finish the little bit that was left. I am saving the process of felting it until I have something else that will go into the washer machine with it.
I have now started another pin cushion by Pipp (love that name- that is my Mom’s maiden name) and this one is going to, God willing, look like a pumpkin when it is finished. This is the one that I will hopefully be entering in the State Fair in 2012.
I will have this done by the end of the week and I already have my next project lined up. Felted baby booties. I also found another pattern by Pipp that I want to do, soooooo.. who knows till it is time to pick up the needles and wool and knit. I just can’t tell you how wonderful my heart feels to be knitting again. I honestly thought that with the passing of Fiona I would never want to knit again. I went thru a dark winter with no desire to knit….. but now, wow, it is just about all I can think about. That and being totally addicted to Ravelry!!! Making some great friends and finding a ton of things to knit! Never enough time in the day that is for sure.
Dinner calls so I will close this blog off for today. The snow is falling and the wind is howling, but I have my knitting, computer and family to keep me warm!!! (Ahem, not in that order!)
