Day 8 - Challenging
|Celtic Cables Dishcloth|
So I found my WIP for Cables to be challenging. Not that making the cables was challenging, just the need for concentration and paying attention is challenging. I used cotton and it really didn't have much give but I plan to attack this pattern again and try to get it to stand out. Also I accidentally did 2 rows twice and that was when I decided to frog the pattern. I know now I need to make notes and journal while doing these projects.
Day 9 - Your Hands
|Working on Silver's Sock Class|
Anyway, I have to comment that I love nail polish. I usually either have a manicure or at least my nails painted, but I am guilty of letting it chip away for a while (GASP!) Anyway, I am pretty handy at painting my own nails and can even do a decent job on the dreaded right hand. This nail polish is from Essie and the color is called Lion Around. I love it. I tend to gravitate toward deep colors and stay away from pastels but this one is just the right amount of color to make me happy.
As noted on the caption, I am working on Silver's Sock Class in Tequila Sunrise from Breathless by Shalimar Yarns
Also, the purple band is from the Knit and Crochet Fest.
Day 10 - Your Craft Bag
My mom made me a craft bag. I really like it and it holds a couple of projects and my bag of needles and hooks. I mentioned that I wanted a bag and the next weekend this was made. I didn't quite like the bag at first but it really grew on me.
I realize now that I didn't always appreciate all of the little things that my mom did for me. I look around my apartment and see the curtains, pillows, and blankets she made. I see the lamps she found for me when I moved to my first apartment and the appliances I got for holidays and birthdays. She was kind of awesome and I really did have a great mom.
Day 11 - A WIP
|Noro Plaid Project|
I have craft ADD and have like 6 WIPs going on but I couldn't help but grab this one for the photo because the colors are so vibrant and beautiful.
Day 12 - A Crafty Gift
I made this scarf for my Friend Jenn but never got it to her. Now that St. Patrick's Day is coming around again, I hope to get her this scarf.
So what do you think? I personally can't wait for my recap at the end of the month to show you all of the pictures!
