A bit about me and crafting as of late!
Hello! I am in a couple of swaps on Ravelry right now and I think maybe I needed to write something up about what I have been up to craft wise. I have been making Christmas gifts and recently I am working on baby items for my husbands nephew (they are due in Jan.) I always work on family items as a given so I use a lot of good ole Red Heart/I love this yarn/Deborah Norville/Impeccable/Caron brands. I do love LOVE wool yarn tho. I also love fingering weight yarn but I found I have a small amount of DK weight yarn lately which is weird because I haven’t used much!
All things vintage are cool in my book. Not 60s but before that whole hippie era 🙂 I love making crochet jewelry and bracelets. I love Charms and Buttons! I sew also. I love beads and beadwork and putting beads into crochet and knitting.. beautiful! I love owls and pigeons! 😀
I love to read but I have to figure out a way to find more hours in the day to do it! I found that audio books help this problem because you can do something else while listening. I like inspirational novels ones that make you feel warm and fuzzy when you read them but I am not a big fan of the dramatic romantic stuffz. I like Jane Austen movies/books/anything.
My 2012 year of crafting includes making everyone I know a hat of some sort. Cowls/neck warmers/hats etc etc etc. I figure if I start early there should be plenty of time to finish right? haha 🙂
I want to make some projects I have been putting off and I want to do some things I haven’t done before. I have never made socks! I would like to try enterlac also. I have never done fair isle and would like to try my hand at some felting. I have yet to make a “blanket” that is larger then a baby blankie and I would love to find the patience to do that! Especially the Bee Keeper’s Quilt by Tiny Owl Knits. Must collect all mini skeins!!!!!
I hope this small bit about me helps out, thanks for reading!!!!
