It's packing time. In addition to packing clothes, computers, etc., I'm packing up items I've made while away from home for the past few weeks. These are items that I haven't already featured here with their patterns.
Some of these pictures are of items I made and have given away.
I've given away the sets of cupcakes to my sister-in-law and other friends.
And then, there are the turtles (pattern here).
There are turtles, turtles, and even more turtles.
Most of them have crawled out of the turtle bowl, though, and have found new homes.
I have also made 80 flowers for another flower afghan (pattern here). I have packed up the flowers to go home where I have the yarn to finish this project.
Daughter Catherine sends us care packages every week and instead of using Styrofoam packing material, she uses balls of yarn. Very clever! I work very hard to use it all before we leave for home. ;)
And, finally, while we have been out here floating around I have finished a sweater for one of the kids for next Halloween. This one is made using a Bernat pattern that I imagine is still available on their web site. I won't say who it is for yet because I know the kids sometimes check into my blog.
This pumpkin sweater will disappear into my gift box at home until the appropriate time next year. ;)
To the left is a sweater I made for my daughter. It's made with my pattern published earlier here.
Other projects I have made in the last few weeks have already been featured here with my patterns.
Still to come are several projects that I've finished and will feature here in the next days and weeks. Most of them are clothes for Ginger, my 18" doll. She has become quite demanding!
Have I mentioned that I have a suitcase dedicated to knitting, crochet, and supplies when I travel? ;)
Do you take needlework projects along when you travel? I have enjoyed meeting others while away from home this time who also enjoy knit and crochet. Some don't speak English, but we all speak needlework. :)
I'll be back soon with more patterns. :) I hope you'll enjoy using some of them.
