A is for Apron, B is for Birthday

Cinzia, my loctician had a birthday this month. When I went for my monthly hair appointment yesterday I gave her this apron as a little token.  Her favorite color is orange and she loves African prints, so she loved this apron.

Camp Loopy Project Two

Okay I am done with Project 2. The requirements for this project was to create a project of at least 800 yards using a color from the flag of your country in the project.

Project:  Secret of Change by Veera Valimaki
Yarn: Dream of Color Smooshy
Needle: 6 and 8 US

Project 3 will begin July 27. Requirement is to do a pattern you haven't done before, use at least two colors and must be at least 500 yards. I already have the pattern picked out. And I ordered the yarn from The Loopy Ewe.

Meanwhile the Stephen West Mystery KAL begins tomorrow.  I'm glad I'm done with Camp for awhile so I can concentrate on the West Knit.

Happy Knitting!

Summer Bags

It was so hot over the 4th of July holiday that I spent the majority of the time inside, under the air knitting and sewing.  Besides working on my Camp knitting project, I made this set consisting of a purse, a tote, iPad case, eyeglass case and some other miscellaneous pouches.
