10/16/2011. The fairy's flower bag is done! Cascade 128.
I have done little knitting after Hanami. I totally missed out on the yellow month of Project Spectrum. I did manage to block my Sampler Stole and turn it in to a poncho. I envisioned the end to side "classic" poncho, but the neck hole was too large, so I did the side to side version. I think this will be my airplane "blankie" instead of my usual Clapotis for my upcoming trip.
The new Knit Simple Holiday 2011 has a very cute pattern for fairies. It even has a little flower bag to put the fairy in. I'm hoping to have this done for my nieces's daughter. I've used bits of sock yarn and made her barefoot. I still have to find some yarn to make her wings. I think I'll use the Baruffa Cashwool, and hold it double. There she is sitting on a pile of punch fun! My latest obsession is the Stampin' Up Punches. One leads to another. So far I have a pile of strawberries, acorns, bats, turkeys, lady bugs and a few pumpkins.
My house refi is nearly done and I'm looking forward to my trip to Atlanta, North Carolina and Wisconsin. SAFF here I come! I'm looking forward to seeing Kbrow, meeting her sister and visiting the Piedmont and Blue Ridge Mountains! I think I'll be at the Fair all 3 days!
