meleriffic, those hats are cute.  I hope you guys have a good trip.

I've been making all kinds of projects that aren't on my list.  It's mid-February and it looks like I might be losing my focus already.

cthulu dice bag loose by hybrid_hopes

We've been playing Arkham Horror every so often.  This bag was inspired by the game.  I've only read a few of Lovecraft's short stories, and fell asleep during reading one.  I don't recommend that, especially if you're reading from a library book in which someone slipped a creepy note that happens to fall out on your chest and you find it when you wake up mid-nightmare.

Here's me doing the three needle bind-off for the first time Cheesy  Not a particularly instructional image, but yay for conquering new techniques!  (I promise that there are three needles being used there, but you can only see two).

It's been ages since I've been to a craftster meetup!  Depending on the timing I'd love to hang out!  I'd offer up a spare bed, but we kind of got rid of it in a nursery conversion...  and I donno how many people want to vacation at a home with a new baby.  Or how much of a hostess I'd be able to be. 
By July, I'll be back to work, and my work schedule's weird.  But if you have any morning hangouts, I could probably definitely make it, no matter if I work that day or not.

Thanks for sharing!  I'll probably just be relaxing this weekend, but I'll pass the info on.
40  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / little seamless heart on: January 09, 2011 07:10:41 PM
This isn't superfancy, but I'm kinda proud of it.  I'm trying to improve my knitting skills, and this gave me practice a couple ways to increase and decrease.

here it is with one lobe done:

and here it is when I had to change over because I ran out of gray yarn!

I know it's hard to tell, but it's two sided.  The project was fun and quick.  I think I'll make more, maybe turn 'em into a scarf or stuff some of them with lavender or something.

Here's the pattern: http://knittersdelight-sarloz.blogspot.com/2008/06/seamless-heart-pattern.html
