I happened on a blog this afternoon, with a terrific contest going and the prize is Malabrigo yarn! Check it out here. She wants me to let you know that my favorite flower is white roses.
A herd of place markers for Easter dinner have taken over my workroom! I had fun making these with the Accucut die system at work yesterday and then decorating them at home with chalk, ice stickles, glitter glue and Quickutz Blossom set letter dies. I had invited the girls from my work to come to Good Friday Service with me yesterday and all but one were able to join me. I was so blessed. In the afternoon, the boss let us have the key to the store so we could scrapbook to our heart's content at the class tables. I left around 5:30 p.m. but some of the die hards were going to be there well in the night ... you go girls!
I still had a ball of Malabrigo left over from making the fetching mitts, so thought I'd try out a Koolhaus hat for our s-i-l. He works outdoors in the wet and cold and as this is pure wool, thought it would keep him warm and dry. I've just started the decreases for the crown, so should be finished soon. The colour is Vuu ? and is a really dark green, with a bit of blue and lime in it. So soft! This is an interesting knit ... although I'm reading a lot online lately about how to knit a cable without a cable needle, I am using a cable needle as the yarn is so dark, I didn't want to chance on loosing a stitch. Plus, it's so ingrained, I don't know if I could make the change at this point. We'll see.
Blessings to you as we celebrate our risen Lord!
