Today's my birthday!!
and in celebration I will take 10% off any purchase in my shop thru Sunday(refund to be made via paypal after purchase). O.k shameless promo done.....
Today-my Mom will probably bring us lunch as we have a sick one here and I will only be able to leave the house long enough to ....do errands!
Some, fun to me errands-like picking up a couple of craft books I have on hold at the library and getting some size 4 double point needles at my local (about to permanently close :( LYS.
I've been waiting to go buy them for days -but can't leave the house 'til shop closing time.
I'm working on the "Phenomenon" mittens-found via Ravelry, and I just can't get the gauge right but the cables are working out nicely-and it's my first time at that. I'll share a photo once I get the size 4's!!
In other news I made this, yesterday:
Pictures-not so good. I know. I tried a few times and could just not get the color right. Then if I did-you could not see the detail in the vintage buttons...I'd describe the color as a terracotta-butterscotch, burnt orange. I think it is a Joel Dewberry print-but when I went to look at his website-I couldn't find anything like it. Does anyone know the name of this fabric? I'd love to know.
Anyway I thought it would be great for Fall. The nice earthy colors....
O.k, I'd better go....prepare for the 'big day' .....shower-library-needles. Oh don't worry-I'm sure some chocolate cake will make it's way into the picture ; )
Have a great weekend~
