birds of a feather flock together
signs of spring

she did it

I have been getting after my sister Donna who crochets to venture out and make something other than blankets...mind you there is nothing wrong with blankets.  I just thought that she would have so much fun making something else.  Donna has been wanting to get some kind of holder for her crochet hooks.  I thought of making her one so I started to surf the web to find a pattern to sew.  I found a couple, but I spied a crocheted felted holder that totally jumped out at me.  We have been getting together to knit and crochet every so often, so she came over to my house and she had it made and felted all in one night.

I was so proud of her, I just knew she could make it and here it is.

Like always I forget to take pictures of each step and I forgot to take the picture BEFORE it was felted.  But, here it is felted and she's starting to work on the middle strip that will hold the hooks (which she did when the felted part was all dry)

Isn't it great?  I gave her some yarn from my scraps that I knew I wouldn't be able to make anything out of as there just wasn't enough and there wasn't, so she had to add a bit of the light brown which was the exact same yarn both from a felted hat I had made a couple of years ago.

The sock yarn in my stash have been calling I started a pair of socks yesterday and took it to the "Knit Together" that I went to last night.  I just love the colors and I can't wait to get them done so I can wear them.

Not much else going on here at the homestead other than knitting and scrapping.  I ordered some of my pictures on-line that I plan on putting in a book and I can't wait to get started on it.  I wish the day wouldn't end just so I could do all the things I love to do...and the only thing getting in the way of that is sleep.

I'm seeing signs of spring around here I hope you are too.

Now, go and enjoy your day.
