Fetching and fairies....

Quick update today. Birthday yesterday was good. Got a great view of the fireworks, yummy cake and presents. My mom may disown me for buying another one of the books on my wish list right before my birthday. (She knew I bought Charmed Knits and then we found out during the unwrapping that I had done the same with Stitch N' Bitch) But I got some others that I like, very excited about Sweater Workshop by Jacqueline Fee. Also World of Knitted Toys by Kath Dalmeny which has a bunch of cute things. And mom let me trade Stitch N' Bitch for yarn so that's all good!!

I finished the left-hand fetching glove. Super soft! Cables are not fully visible with the fuzzy yarn (and fuzzy camera). I was scared about removing the waste yarn and picking up the stitches. I had crazy visions of the whole thing unraveling. So I took a picture right before removing so I could prove I got that far if it did explode or something.















I took a tiny break and made a fairy. When the bead show was in town I bought a fairy kit from Glass Garden Beads. I bought and made the coral one the same day. Well, my mom and son decided that it was lonely so I got the blue kit as a present from son. Made that one today after fetching. I apologize for the fuzzy picture. They are little and zoom only works so far.


Second fetching glove is cast on and started. although if I finish it as fast as the first one, I'm going to need another "plane security appropriate" project. hmmmm....

Good night and happy knitting!

those fairies would make very cool stitch markers... or perhaps they would just get their arms and legs tangled. Nevermind. They are cute no matter what they may be 'useful as'. Bling! Fairy bling. Wow. it's super late... or super early... better go. Hope you're well. like the progress on the fingerless gloves. Cami

It's actually 12:56 here... bloggers clocks are always set wrong for us!

nope, they would get tangled where the wire is rolled into little hands and feet. At the bead show they were shown as necklace charms but I just like to have them watch over me. Fairies fascinate me.

about the button: Knitting Daily had the code for all the different 'blog' formats when they rolled it out (the new button) for public display. I just copied it into the blogger 'add a page element' thingee. I may have attempted it a few times, or possibly I just typed in the code. I can't remember now. Everything's an overwhelming blur. I suggest to anyone reading this comment, go find a yarn or fabric shop owner, and give them a hug... or a sandwich. Or at least ask them how they come to still have brain cells and a credit rating left... 'cuz I'd really like to know. D-fly, you are so on for the amusement park next year. I hope I don't barf. Or chicken out of going on a big ride. I hope y'all are well there. Peeling? Ugh. I'm still itchy on my back where the burn from three weeks? omg. wtf with the time loss? help. Cami
