I'm trying a new technique that I saw on Uncommon Threads on HGTV using a technique created by Prudence Mapstone Basically you crochet and knit items and sew them together crochet on to forms or latchhook canvas (which is the option I chose). I cut out the pieces and am now crocheting using different colors and textures. I will eventually add some scrumbles and beads. Then I will sew the pieces together, line it and put on handles.
I am enjoying this project, however, it bothers my wrists and arms so I am doing it in short spurts.

I signed up for my first swap in a long time. This is my first swap on ravelry and it was a lot of fun. My swap partner srknittykitty just happened to be from Wisconsin and is also cat lover. The pictures of the scarf being stretched is the one I sent her, the rest of the pictures are the one she sent me and all the goodies. She really spoiled me with the homemade Hello Kitty stitchmarkers and other Hello Kitty accessories as well as a Mary E. journal, an elephant tape measure, a bunch of Crystal light singles, some popcorn seasoning and a cute knitted garden slug that Misu wanted to steal.
Thanks so much, Beth!

Tira always loves to help me display my projects and the Swirl Shawl from Jojoland is no exception. I love the pattern, but because of my short attention span I'm not getting very far.
This was a present I made for my honey, Cy. He needed a mask to keep his face warm during the winter at work when he is working outside. You wouldn't think we would need something like this in Florida right, but it does get pretty cold sometimes and this past winter was worse that normal. I also used this project for the Ravelympics.
My boss was going to buy a new sweater for this bear I had given her a number of years ago, but I told her no worries, I can make one for him. I wonder if I'll ever get a sweater made for myself?
