We Have the Technology...
I've just been working almost non-stop since my last post. I haven't had a lot of time to knit, but I did finish that present I mentioned was partially done last time I posted.
It's a Tooth Fairy Pillow for Ben or Red. I'm making two of them, so I'm done, but REALLY only halfway done. That mouth is a little pocket. You put the tooth in the pocket and then the tooth fairy leaves you some money. The pattern is from "New Knits on the Block" by Vickie Howell.
I also finished another mitered square:
And I felted the striped bell hat I showed you a few weeks ago:
I think it turned out really well. The pattern is the Striped Bell hat, a Pick Up Sticks! leaflet.
I mentioned another hat that I made, but I forgot to take a picture of it before I brought it into my office. I'll photograph it before I put together all the stuff I'm mailing to Pine Ridge. Since I've been working so much, I haven't had time to organize and inventory all of the stuff I collected. As soon as I do, I'll post a photo here.
I can't believe how fast time is racing. I was thinking about leaving for So Dak next Friday, but I don't know if I'll be ready to go by then. I did spend last Sunday making my holiday cards, but I haven't mailed any of them out yet. I have done some shopping, but I still have some left and I've only wrapped three presents, so I have a lot of wrapping left to do. I haven't done any baking, so I guess that's going to get punted this year. Then there's that other pillow to knit and I'm making something for Katie too, since I made something for the boys. I wish I could just take the next week off of work, but it's another busy one.
