Or this one:
So I'm using both. :)
Started last week, my beanie and mitts set is all finished up and will be tucked away for Christmas gift giving. The pink is a wee bonnet for a friend's granddaughter! So thankful that six months remain for the finishing of other larger projects like my Brennan and Citron. Another project I started this week is the deconstruction of this:
I haven't decided what it will become once I've reduced it to hand-wound balls of yarn, but I can tell you that my purpose is to enter the finished project at the county fair in hopes of winning the Elsie Thompson Award which is a special rosette and $10.00 cash award for the best use of recycled materials to make a new garment. Here are the requirements:
I've always admired seeing what people come up with each year, but I've never seen a "re-knit" of a second-hand garment. And while $10 isn't much, it will more than compensate me for my half-price Goodwill purchase -- wish me luck!
- Submit a picture, duplicate or display of the original materials and indicate what the garment was made from (i.e., dress from drapes, vest from jeans).
- Must be a new garment, not an alteration for size, etc.
Not a lot of reading happening here this week other than my morning Bible reading and nightly visit to Mitford. Father Tim and Cynthia are like old friends who I'm so glad to be reacquainted with. :)
Thanks so, so much to those of you who've inquired about my AnnaLynn and lifted her up in prayer; she's doing terrific and has been diligent in following her grain and diary free diet. What a trooper! I'm still perplexed as to what caused her to be in such pain what is now two weeks ago, but I'm thankful for answered prayers nonetheless.
