Amulet Bags

May 22, 2008

Amulet Bags, originally uploaded by DawnsRays.

Taking a break from the long, arduous knitting of lace to get in a quick fix.  I love the Amulet Bag pattern so much!  it is fast and a great way to use some of that fantastic sock yarn that is out there.  These bags are in for great things.  One is for me to hold some wonderful oils and my rings while I am at work and the other is a gift that will hold, well. . . I can’t say at the moment, let’s just say it is the perfect pouch for what I have in mind. **unfortunately the pattern was on the MagKnits knitting page and has since been banished to the nether regions of cyber space**

Eye Candy Friday/ Rose On Wall

May 16, 2008

Oh, the weekend is here!  Hope you all have a good time in whatever you choose to do.  We are going to the Tennessee Ren. Festival tomorrow and I can’t wait.  I love that festival.  Too much fun, always.  


What ‘Cha Makin’?

May 12, 2008


This photo is of all the works in progress and finished objects that I have going on and it is all just sitting by my recliner in the living room.  

At the top you will see the finished cushy face cloth I finished using the test needles and the latest piece of lace (in that gorgeous aqua blue from Knit Picks).  Then there is a gypsy bag and the Montego Bay scarf.  I work on each of them periodically but like I said, lace is in my blood at the moment.  The dark blue lace that I started last year is still being worked on and will be done before Christmas of this year.  That is my goal…

Oh, there is also a pink tank top there in the photo that I finished awhile ago but have yet to weave in those pesky loose ends.  I hate that part.  The weather is warm enough that I could start wearing it so I better get it done and photographed.  

It’s Monday, experience something new and savor every moment of it.  Right now I am experiencing Kiwi/Strawberry yogurt and it is delicious!

Test Needles

May 6, 2008


These are some needles I am testing for a friend before she decides if she should add them to her shop. I think they look really cool!

I have decided to scrap the new lace project on account of color choice. That lace yarn I lasted posted about is making me want to gag. Blah! I hate the colors! It is like washed out camouflage. I don’t know what I am going to do with the yarn but I will not be knitting with it. Life is to short. If you think you may want it, please let me know. I would love for someone who finds it appealing to have it and love it. In this house it will only be hidden away. Any takers?

Have a great day!
