I must show off some off how gifted my daughters are.
Not only are they awesome teachers but they are artists as well.
First Born has made beautiful jewelry.
These are just a few things she has made for me.
More can be seen on her blog
The GrimmWitch of Jersey
on the left bar under My Jewelry.
Last Born is a visual artist.
These paintings are of her grandfather.
This is from a picture of Pipa,as they called him, in the 1940s.
Those who knew my Dad know this painting looks just like him!
I just love this painting and was so thrilled when she gave it to me!
More of her art can be found at The Art Geek.
Look What I Got!!!!
I have been eyeing this
Namaste Bag online for months!
I walked into a LYS to get needles for the Central Park Hoodie I am going to make for First Born and asked the sales person to show me the bag. I almost past out when she told me it was on sale for $36!
There is tons of room for big projects.
I will be showing it off when The Chalk Dust Knitters/Crocheters meet on Thursday!
This is the cable scarf I made for Mr.J being blocked.
It is the Reversible Cable Scarf by Lion Brand made from Adriene Vittadini Trina.
I normally don't like making scarves but I enjoyed this pattern so much I'm sure I'll have another one on the needles soon.
Finally finished Wisp by Cheryl Niamath made from Tilli Tomas Silk 'n Shimmer. I love this yarn!
Thanks to Sunday for recommending it.
First Born is modeling a beret I made out of one of my fav yarns Cascade 220 tweed.
The pattern is from Le Slouch
by Wendy Bernard which was free on Ravelry but is no longer available.
I looked for it on her website but couldn't find it.
I'm glad I have a copy because I know I will make another soon.
Last Born is modeling Norwegian Gloves by Nancy Bush.
They're made with Dale of Norway/Dalegarn Baby Ull. The yarn is nice to knit with but it's not wearing well.
I will make this pattern again but I will never use this yarn again.
Next post will have faceless pictures of The Chalk Dust Knitters/Crocheters meeting.
