Apron and Chapeau

So in this blog we have our Egg pickin' apron.  This is a mommy design from two different patterns I liked.  The first was for a halter top, the second was for a cute dress that has a pocket all away around the bottom.  I had received some fun yarn from a girlfriend that was moving to Florida.  She wanted to get rid of her stash it is cute just not baby soft.  This apron will be shipped to my cousins daughters on the farm.  The pockets will be perfect for treasures they find our eggs that need to be brought into the house.

The second is the Sophia Chapeau.  This hat was made for a toothbrush holder that was made from pottery, gorgeous.  Thank you Amy.  Use it every day.  I have actually made two hats one ended up being small so it is for little sister or her Mandy doll.  I learned how to do an I-cord with this design that is the center of the flower.  I hope Miss Sophia likes it.

more Halloween 2011

Brady needed a griffindor scarf to go along with his new glasses that we had just gotten.  Tom originally was a Slytherin but for actually trick or treating he wanted something more grown up. Think Colin Creevey meets the New sheriff in town

back to knitting we go

So it has been a super long time since I have posted anything.  Reason One my computer got too old and I still don't want to let her go we had a lot of good years together.  I have gone to using a nook tablet to do all my reading of blogs and fb.  However, I have been unable to type on said tablet so no updating the blog.  Reason Two life kind of took over.
The ski season is over and did we have a good time, a very good time.  My hubby quit his truck driving job and now he is HOME every day.  I have to say I was a little nervous about this change but it is going really well.  He is losing weight and I am gaining which has needed to happen for a long time.  Ever need anything delivered pls par take of your shopping at your local Lowes.
So I am knitting up a storm and once I find and connect my camera to the computer that hubby has rigged up in the den I will show more pics this is what I have so far.

This shows my halloween costume which consisted of knitted sleeves and a corset.  Very interesting to learn short rows and a linen stitch.  I also created a pattern for my sleeves.  Very fun and satisfying overall Bellatrix Lestrange the Heidi version.  I am here dueling Molly Weasley aka Heather N.
