Herringbone Kimono, 2010 Calendar

December 16, 2009

It was deceit enough to take a picture outside.  I really liked making this sweater.  Coming up the back and going down the front was a nice feature.  I still haven’t decided on buttons yet, but the baby isn’t due until February, so there’s time.  I may just let my daughter decide.

 Here’s the Jim Shore calendar wall quilt that I made for my daughter.  I personalized it by adding an appliqued heart and special dates.  I added five hanger loops across the top with the leftover binding.  I’m very happy with the results.

I rode down to Salisbury yesterday and bought three bags of Pecan Yummies for my son-in-law at the UPS store.  I’m not certain he will get all three bags.  They do look yummy.

High High Tide

December 10, 2009

It rained all night.  The geese love it.  They can stand on the bulkhead and still be in the water.  Everything is sodden.  I didn’t get much of a walk because of it.  The weather was mild so Doug put out the Christmas lights on the deck.  I had been out shopping this afternoon and they were so pretty when I came over the bridge.  Of course, I forgot to stop at the bank so I have to run out again tomorrow.   It’s supposed to be a lot colder.

I have the kimono blocked.  Maybe tomorrow I can start putting it together.  I found some snaps and buttons.  Wal-Mart doesn’t have much at all anymore.  They only had one kind of snaps and they were black.  At least I have plenty of buttons.  In the meantime, I’ve started Heritage Booties with the same yarn.  I thought about making a hat to go with the kimono, but I really liked the booties.

I don’t understand why anyone would send an “Edible Arrangements”.  You have to eat that stuff right away.  You don’t know how long they were sitting around either.  You know, I don’t think I could eat it.  I’d probably sit it out back and let the birds eat.

Herringbone Kimono

November 22, 2009

I am very happy with the way this is looking.  There are no shoulder seams.  You knit down from the back.It nice to do something different.  The yarn is a lovely combination of cotton, wool and nylon.  It feels soft and is easy to knit.
