On my Ravelry group we had a lovely swap for March. I made the sweet little doily in green….which was way harder than I had imagined as the color was too dark. This came from a pattern book called Extra-Special Doilies by Mary Werst, Leisure Arts Book #3588, and each one is really a treasure! I only made one half of the doily in the pattern and it was still really pretty!
This is one completed in the Ravelry data base by RosesNLace. Spectacular!
Then I sent along the Spring scarf for when the weather finally starts getting warmer. I used a stitch that was sc, dc across and then sc on the dc and dc on the sc. Makes it lighter.
I finished and sent the Seattle Seahawks type hat…and it was a little big for Stephanie. She rolls up the edge and then it fits…won't let me replace it.
My wonderful package came from North Carolina! A really sparkly and welcomed Welcome sign!
Two skeins of Unforgettable in Meadow…such a beautiful color…along with a hook and some stickers.
The best part of the gift is the scrumptious Irish Rose that I will sew to a small pillow. It's beautiful!
Yesterday I knitted (that means TRIED to knit) a dishcloth. It was fun to try, but soooo soooo slow! Took me all day (it was for practice only) and then I made one that took hour in crochet. Big difference!
Two more weeks and a day to St. Patrick's Day….are you making anything special?
Now we are on to an Easter/Spring swap, a contest or two, and having fun!!!
I have a pair of mittens to show next week, and the progress on the Windowpane Afghan.
