Summer is almost here

Final grades should be posted this week. Summer plans are coming together and as I continue on my photo a day quest, I captured something very elusive... My son's full smile... Day 97/366

Playing around with more squares....

Day 96/366


Color experiment progress

Day 88/366
I was very inspired by another design by Woolly Thoughts called Double Vision. The object is to take 10 different colored yarn and using two strands see how many color combinations you can create. The original design has black borders around each square and I eliminated that. I made strips instead of squares. Also, I only made about ten rows of each "color" because I was afraid I was going to run out of yarn. I am intriqued by some of their other designs regarding mathematical knitting. My hubby told me this is his favorite thing I have ever made with yarn. I said "Ever?" He said "EVER".

I think this still needs a border... Any suggestions?


Granny squares continued

More stash busting...

Day 83/366


Happy Mother's Day!

Day 82/366

Handmade gifts are the best!


Contest entry


I couldn't resist the chance to possibly win a gift certificate to Alamitos Bay Yarn Co. They are having a contest for items to take to the LA Dodger Stitch N Pitch Night. I used the Baby Boy 5 hour Sweater pattern and eliminated the garter ridge row. I added the logo with duplicate stitch. Baseball buttons come from Joann Fabrics.

I am crossing my fingers! :)


Not much crafting getting done...

I should change the name of my blog to something else, since I have not been knitting very much. When I have time, I have been crocheting, though. Finished a baby blanket for the girl who cuts my hair.... Looking forward to summer....
