So I’ve been working away on my cabled fingerless mitts, and have the first one finished except for the thumb. Plus I finished a really cute Bluebird of Happiness for our Christmas tree. Yes, it’s time to start thinking about it. No, I’m not ready. I’m considering stockings this year. Considering being the operative word there. I did buy this pattern because I was worried they’d discontinue it and I’ve always wanted to do a set of these in blue and white. We’ll see.
I’ve been browsing around Ravelry lately, looking for little projects that might be good for the Iowa City Public Library’s annual craft bazaar fundraiser. Here’s my tote bag from last year (pardon the background, I took these photos in my office.)
While looking for things to make, I discovered these adorable little woodland creatures:
They look fast to make, and I think they’d sell really well at the bazaar. The only problem: they’re crocheted. Luckily they weren’t
too complicated, and I was able to make a really cute bear version. I haven’t done the eyes and nose yet, and pardon my water bottle – it makes a poor stand in for a mason jar.
After I finished that one, I endeavored to try my hand at the fox.
