Onde is Onderful (sorry couldn't resist)
My Phildar Onde is DONE!! I'm overall happy with the outcome. Now to see if the child will actually wear it. The shoulders are a bit bigger than hoped, but I was modifying an adult pattern to child size, so I'm sure conversions were a bit off. Operator Error as they say....
Me, A Snob??....hmmm
Also, I've officially joined the Snob Stash Reduction Project. Thanks to Jen of MonkeyKnits for organizing this. As the years go on, I've noticed that my snobbiness has reared it's ugly head..... with yarn that is. I find that I enjoy the finer yarns in life, the Noros, the Debbie Blisses, the Phildars, the Opals..... Now I will admit, I still LOVE Lion Brand.....but no worries Jen, there will be none of that going in the box. I promise!!!
Longing to Join the Charlotte Train
Still contemplating Charlotte..... I LOVE all the wonderful Charlottes that are being made. Check out the Charlotte's Web Knit along. I guess I need to step up the ebay selling of extra 'junk' to afford this lovely treat for myself. I guess I'm feeling left out of being a Charlotte Woman.
Speaking of Shawls..... Taylor has been studying Pioneer Days in school an asked me to make her a Shawl to wear. Some of the other kids have been dressing up, they even have new 'names'. Taylor is now Eve in school for the next few weeks. So I started this lovely simple shawl for her and her comment was. "Mom, you know, we are only studying pioneer days for 2 weeks.....do you think you can finish in time." My child knows me all to well.....bouncing from project to project, with out completing something first. Well my dear, I've proven her wrong. Finishing up on the Pioneer Shawl tonight, and she'll be styling in school tomorrow.....just like they did way back when. Hoping to get some good Mom brownie points out of this one. Pictures to come later this week.
