I always love to buy handmade items. Mostly items that I can't make myself, but sometimes, even items I could make, but just don't feel like doing it. Here are my newest finds.
I guess this is called a "yarn buddy" . I never saw one before, but the other day while scrolling through blogs, another knitter was raving about hers, so I did a search and found CRAFTINESS
Another thing that I love are shawl pins. They are kind of hard to find. Especially good quality pins.
But look at this lovely copper shawl pin that I found at Nicholas and Felice It is a heavy gauge copper, and it is beautiful.
I had a bunch of yarn that I bought to knit a big round shawl. This is what it looked like when I first started:
I decided to give the whole shawl knitting a rest and I wanted to knit something different so I used the yarn to start a cardigan for myself
BERNHARDT and the finished cardigan will look like this: HERE
I like cardigans, and it is hard to find a nice one that is actually warm.
So everything is going well, I need to get back behind the sewing machine. I'm sending my daughter off to the Air Force tomorrow. It is something that she really wanted. She is old enough to make her own decisions, she has college under her belt, and she lived for nearly 3 years on a combined Army/AirForce base, so I figure she knows what is in store.
It doesn't mean that I won't think and worry about her constantly. They may grow up, but they will always be my babies.. I can't help it.
I hope that you all have a great week!!!
