Sunday, Sweet Sunday

One Skein Wonder in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran dusty pink. Actually a two skein wonder. Very wonderful nice soft yarn. The sizing on this pattern is tricky. I made the smallest size for my niece, but well, I had to move it up 3 sizes and it's still pretty tiny. I'm counting on the stretchability. I think I'll make a few more of these babies. They really fill that immediate gratification need.

I talked my self out of going out shopping for more things I don't need. (I really want a George Foreman Grill since I heard it can go in the dishwasher!) Okay well I confess, I shopped on line for some Berocco Chincilla, closing out at Kyarns to make a bunny and a bear. And oh well, I added on a couple skeins of the Lana Grossa Cool Wool always aspiring to make a hat that an actual boy/man will wear.
But other then that I had a productive day in the jewelry-making department.

A little late, there are some Stars and Stripes stitch markers, some earrings and bracelet from the ruby beads a friend gave me, and a bunch of purple bracelets, stash-busting and to celebrate The Fabulous and Inspiring Miz Lolly's Project Spectrum Purple Month
Alas the purple did not scan well.

I frogged my Watermelon Dublin Bay sock and have turned the heel on the redo on 60 stitches instead of 72. The colors are lined up in a whole new way with some very interesting pooling. I'll take a picture when more of it is done.

Your OSW is lovely! I tried making one of those once - never finished it. But it is so cute!

You are a creating, crafting dervish! The OSW is adorable. I thought that DB yarn was incredibly soft. Hooray for more cool weatherr for Nuuanu today!

I made a OSW for my sister back in March, and I have often thought that I need one for myself. It looks great in that Cashmerino Aran! Such a pretty texture.

Great beadwork too, Barb! So happy to see the purples for PS ;)

Have a lovely day!

Hi Barb! You were busy making some cool jewelry. I am itching to make some jewelry - it's been so long. I just showed my girlfriend Psyche and she absolutely loves him. She wanted to know if you are selling any Totoros.
