lately

I've been unfocused as usual and have been trying new things. At this rate, I will never master anything.

I love polar bears, well, who doesn't, right? This is my own pattern embroidered on a linen / cotton blend fabric that I dyed with indigo. The color of the fabric was natural. That's why the indigo color is so nice and soft.

I call this the "heart of darkness" because the center of the yarn balls were tangling. It's sock yarn woven on a rigid heddle loom.

I have no idea why I had to try this... (knitted)

This is a great pattern, so natural and simple in cotton.

Here is some more weaving. It's in cotton. I rather like weaving.

This afghan was knitted with three strands of worsted yarn. I did the swatching and all that, but didn't know how to count the stitches correctly. So I ended up with a 72" wide x 34" long afghan. Sure, you can turn it around, and have it be 34" wide x 72" lon but that's still not a nice size. It's just weird. :D So I took it apart and am re-knitting. My husband calls the huge yarn balls Jupiter and Neptune because they're so huge.

Okay, I REALLY like crocheting potholders - a lot.

These are simpler with some made out of baker's twine.

I'm not much into toys so much, but I love some things, like this knitted cashmere bunny.

This fairy doll completely won me over. She was supposed to be knitted with organic cotton, but I don't feel my knitting warrants that yet. I used DK weight acrylic. I like her ears. They remind me of Nosferatu. That's why I didn't give her hair. I like her like this.

  1. I like your fairy doll with no hair too!! I see the Nosferatu resemblance! Frightening, but sweet at the same time!! 8*)

    I got here from Geninne's Turbo calendar. So sad. I wish we knew what happened to him...bite, plant? He will be missed by a lot of people all over the world!

  2. Thank you! I don't know about Turbo. I need to do a little research.
