Here is a place where you can enjoy listening (reading) about all my adventures as a lefty in a righty world. It is not easy to do this at times but I have managed to do it for over 60 years. Crafting is probably the hardest thing to do as a lefty since all directions are printed for righties. I have managed to adjust and will be more than happy to share my crafts with you thru pictures and writings. Enjoy!

Just like I promised
I do have some crafts that I have been working on fast and furiously. First up...............a lovely shawl for a friend.
Remember that sweater class I was taking. Well here is where I am at on the sweater.
I have the cap sleeves finished, the neck is finished even thought it is kind of rolling. I have been promised that once it is blocked that will stop. So now it is a matter of straight stockinette knitting for the rest of the body until I am ready to put the lace pattern from the sleeves onto the bottom.
I also too that cuff down magic loop sock class. I have been doing toe up magic loop since I first started making socks. So I was excited to do the cuff down. I finished the first sock and it fits my hubby just fine. So not wanted to be one of those knitters with second sock syndrome.................
Since the ravelry group that I have been in for the past 11 months has decided to do their Year of Projects for another year...........................I now have to come up with a list of projects that is reasonable/feasible for me to complete in a years time. It starts on July 1st and is an absolute blast to do. We have knitters, crocheters and even some sewers in there. It is great fun to see what everyone does. I especially love reading all the blogs from all over the world. I have learned some totally new 'sayings' from it.
Not much else on the crafting front.
Personal life..................................just about the same as always.......................exercise,work, eat, knit/crochet, sleep.

A craft exchange - how perfect is that!?! See you finished her scarf in just a few weeks. How's she doing on the cross-stitch?ReplyDelete
Love the soft blue of your pullover. It's going to look awesome dressed down with jeans as well as dressed up!
An exchange...that's really cool. Wish one of my friends was a crafty person. Shawl, socks look awesome. The sweater....oh la la....You've been busy.ReplyDelete
Such prettiness! I love that sweater, it's adorable. Glad you're doing another year, me too.ReplyDelete
