Feel like a cat....a whole lot of yarn and a bit of stitching....

Am doing a lot of knitting of late - Tina at Simply In Stitches (flosstuber on Youtube & also on Instagram) has been kind enough to do some knitting SALs and also tutorials - so I've been doing house slippers (2nd & 3rd sets - actual color swatches in corners):


Socks pattern and yarns

Sweater pattern and yarn

Cardigan pattern and yarn (yarn is actually black)



















































I also started a scarf:

Actual color swatch in corner















On the stitching home-front, slow progress on my Mom's birthday present (was back in January):
Upside down Raggedy Ann - color of actual material














And then will be doing an Easter ornament exchange - doing it on opalescent:














The lady I am doing it for lives overseas in South Africa so I decided to get some extra fabrics to send her for finishing - the fabric on the left is probably the one I will be using to back the ornament with - haven't decided yet:

Twas the night....twas many nights....

Sorry for the lousy photo but there just isn't any place decent to take a photo in my apartment - my phone camera doesn't work so well indoors - needless to say, I am hoping to get an Ott light for Christmas....

Anywho, this was the effort of many a night, it's done later than I had planned but still.... the main stitching of the 37 ornaments for my Christmas tree is complete :) I've got a huge bag from a few shopping trips to Joann's full of felt, ribbon, buttons, specialty scissors, glue and beads that these will be hopefully finished with....I am planning on adding a simple border to some as they are on the small side but we'll see how it goes. I want everything done and on the tree by Nov. 12th! Wish me luck!
