End of the Week

Here are a few photos from my Iphone Instagram App. I love my Iphone and I love Instagram. I am not sure how I feel about Facebook taking over Instagram but as long as they leave it alone and leave it free, all is good.

Love my pink converse, purchased at Target in Bellingham, Washington, they have come out of the closet for the season.

Love these wrist warmers I made – the pattern is in Issue 10 of Mollie Makes Magazine. A British Publication that I wish I could readily get here in North Vancouver. The last Issue I have seen here was Issue 10 and Issue 13 is already on the stands, sigh. I guess I just need to bite the bulllet and subscribe.

Here are my son’s socks which I am still working on, almost finished the first one and then will be on to the second one. I do like knitting socks, love the repetitiveness of stocking stitch. This pattern really calls for rib all the way through, me and rib don’t really get along, I prefer just knitting or purling, not a combination of both in the same row.

Morning Sunlight

Love how the sun reflects off the blinds and my knitting needles. Gorgeous morning here in Vancouver, have to get out and enjoy the day.

Towel Edging

Last weekend I set my mind to crocheting an edging on a towel I had here at home. I got my towel, tape measure and washable marker. I sat down at the table, stretched the towel out and proceeded to measure each half inch on the towel. I thought, this isn’t so bad and going rather well, patted myself on the back a little and carried on.

I went on to Google and found a tutorial for blanket stitch, ok now I am ready to go. I figured if I made a mistake, this is just a practice towel so mistake away. I threaded my needle with blue #3 crochet cotton and completed the blanket stitch.

I followed a pattern for crocheted edging from You Go Girl who has a great 4 part series.

Here is the first side done

I continued on with the other side and am pleased with how it turned out.

I will definitely be making a few more of these. Have to find me some pretty towels to enhance.
