Thank you for your suggestions on knitting needles. In the end, I chickened out and stuck with crochet on the airplane. Although on the way back from New Orleans, my little pair of scissors didn't get caught by security so I guess knitting needles would be okay. I have a few loose ends to wrap up with the crochet projects but I got 3 baby sweaters and a newborn hat made on my travels. I hope to show you soon. I am trying to find a good but easy sweater pattern to give as baby gifts so it was fun to try 3 different ones.
This blog and craftiness have been a little neglected this past week but I wanted to share a few little projects I worked on in the past few weeks:
This was such a fun project. I had all the supplies just hanging out in the craft room, a sick little daughter was sleeping away, and just look! Cute!
I really love this pattern and tutorial. I don't love what I did to mine = ( In hindsight my problem was the batting. It was way to thick and lumpy. It was also hard for me to see where I should place the siding. My hand stitching is horrendous, the worst I think I have ever done. I ended up not doing any applique to make it look like a barn, I was kinda over it. However, I am looking forward to trying this again with my new knowledge in mind. My girl still liked it. Perfect for her animals.
circular knitting needle holder!
Yes I needed one, for my one circular needle! The idea base for my holder came from the book Stitch in Bitch Knitters handbook. I made mine half as long and made buttonholes in the tabs, which I shortened too. I don't know why I added buttonholes other than the fact I just like making them.
