Finish Line

Happy Monday!  Glorious weather has finally come to the Heartland, USA.  We are digging in the dirt, transplanting hosta, peony bushes and relocating the veggie garden to a sunnier spot.   

I've finished up some fingerless mitts and have them for sale in my Etsy shop.  Lion Brand Heartland and some iron on appliques from Simplicity have been a dream to work with.  Even though warm weather is coming, I get many requests for these as air conditioned offices are super cold and these are perfect for that.

The young people at my church are planning a Gift Shop for the months of November and December to raise money for their group.  So, I've set aside some mitts for them.

I found a bunch of baby pastel skeins by Cascade Yarns, so I hooked up a corner to corner blanket with a taupe trim.  I'm not terribly fond of traditional pastels and lean more to non-traditional colors for babies, but I do love how this turned out with the taupe color.

In looking through my bins of finished things, I came across all these beauties I am saving for a "someday grandchild".  Knitted toys designed by Susan B. Anderson, Yarn Miracle Monkey (I don't see her patterns listed in her shop any longer, not sure why), and some I can't even remember where the pattern is from.  It was so much fun finding these as I haven't looked in the bin for about 5 years!  I really must go through the other 3.

 Have a great week,
