I finished the stuffed mittens! Sooooo warm! Soooo simple! I used hand spun wool yarn from my Correidales. They are thick and warm...not chore gloves by any means but I definitely liked knitting them. Several of the Mary Jane gals told me that they are going to make a pair.
This pair took less than a week, working a couple of hours here and there on them. Went really fast.
So I started a new pair for Angie. They will match her scarf that she made by weaving yarn from our flock. I am knitting the Itsy & Bitsy yarn and stuffing with Dolly's Boy's fleece that I have dyed a lime green to match the green in her scarf. I wanted to show you how the insides looks as I make them. They are real fuffy and soft inside.
I am getting ready to tackle completing 5 rug hooking projects that I purchased from ebay. I couldn't resist them! I plan to make pillows out of them when I get them finished. I am going to ask my husband to make a couple of little round top milking stools to put a couple on. I put up the topic on Mary Janes Connection in the Stitching and Crafts section and received so much good feed back that I am itching to get to rug hooking. I ordered a used book from ebay and a frame...then later found out that I could have got the supplies from Grace in Colorado. Next time I am just going to ask Grace if she has it first. The last picture is of a purse that I felted from my sheep's wool...of course I had to put a sheep on it. I have carried it several times and it is holding up well. Did I tell you that I have knitted and felted a number of hats. Love to make felted hats. I also find hat boxes to put them in for storage. I make hat stands to display my hats too.....that is another blog.
