I finished Lavender Fairy on Karen’s RR last night and I think she turned out very pretty.
Karen’s RR is going to be so gorgeous when it gets finished. She did an awesome job on her layout. And just look at the sparkles in that fabric! I still have to add my name,and then she will be ready to mail on in July. I’m not sure I like Joan Elliott patterns. Lots of fractionals. But hubby does like this fairy and he did buy me a special purple hand dyed fabric to stitch her on. So I suppose I will have to stitch her in full some day.
I also put my Passione Ricamo Mystery SAL on the LARGE scroll frame. The masking tape hubby bought was really tacky and messy leaving a residue all over the roll when I pulled tape up and on my hands. So I didn’t really want to put that on my fabric. So I ended up hand basting it to the piece of fabric on the rods. It was a chore, but I’m glad it’s done.
My fabric didn’t seem to get tight, so I added the rubber bands and binder clips. Do you see that tiny little spot where the yellow is on the left? That is my start on this SAL. I hope to add some more this weekend. I’ve already had a sneak peek at block #2 to be released on July 1, so I want to make sure I get block 1 done and keep up. For those that were asking about the scroll frame, it’s a K’s Creations. You can click on the link to find out more. Like I said in my last post, I haven’t used this frame in a really long time and not sure I will like it but I am going to give it another try.
Over the weekend, hubby was near a yarn shop and he stopped in. This is what he picked up for me:
A cute little case for my circular needles and some fun festy yarn. There is enough to make 2 scarves. The shop was out of the pattern, so I called to see how to use this yarn. Cast on however many sts I want on to size 15 needles and knit in garter stitch for however long I want. It’s double stranded and it will be interesting to see how this yarn knits up. It’s called Fantasty Fest by The Sassy Skein and the color is Lobster. The shop owner told me the yarn strands were put together by kids that were no longer in the Foster Care system. I thought that was neat. So thank you Skeins On Main for helping hubby pick out some really nice things for me since I couldn’t be there. I hope to get a scarf knitted up before fall rolls around. And when I get to organizing my circular needles, I will post a pic of the inside of that cute little case. That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to.
