Some Finished Holiday Projects!

I've been doing PlanetJune's Poinsettias tutorials http://www.planetjune.com/blog/beaded-poinsettia/ and have been having a lot of fun trying some new crafts!  Just thought I'd share these!  They are all about 2" in diameter or so.   I'm adding brooch backs to all of them so they can be worn as pins.

Beaded Poinsettia in Progress!


I thought I’d share this work-in-progress photo with you! This is the beaded poinsettia I've been working on from June’s recent tutorial:http://www.planetjune.com/blog/tutorials/beaded-poinsetti...
I'm almost finished with it! June, thank you for the hours you put in to presenting this tutorial. I really appreciate it! I’m a total newbie to beading.

I’ve been taking a break from crocheting to let my poor arms/hands heal-I’ve been a crochet animal and have been over-doing it!! Rowr!! For those of you wanting to win this year’s PlanetJune Christmas CAL, this is good news for you-I won last Christmas and did all but one pattern available. If I were feeling better, I’d be kicking CAL butt!! ;-)

Hello neglected Blog!

My Lacy Bobbles Cowl!
I thought I'd just say, 'hi' to my blog!  I've been doing the twitter and facebook thing more lately.  I'll try to post more here too.  This month, I made this Lacy Bobbles Cowl from PlanetJune.  I used JoAnn Sensations Bamboo and Ewe superfine yarn.  I've used this yarn for socks before.  The yarn is just a little bit scratchy but it is mostly really comfy!  I had fun making this cowl.

My First Knooked Project!

I knooked this dishcloth from the book by Melissa Bergland Burnham
My Froggy Dishcloth.  Kneedeep, kneedeep!
from Leisure Arts #3934, Garden Dishcloths to Knit.  I want to make more of these dishcloths.  I'm getting the hang of knooking, knitting with a crochet hook with a cord attached.  I asked my sister-in-law to teach me how to actually knit with needles and she gave me a lesson.  Not as easy as I thought.  I think I'll stick to knooking for awhile.  I hope more instructions for the knook come out. Info on the knook can be found here!
