Needlework Update - August, 2012

Good morning,

Where does the time go?  Here it is time for the August Needlework Update again.  And, as you'll see, I've been busy!

Above is a sweater that was made to order and already sold through our Etsy Shop, EvensensProductions.com.
Before I could ship the sweater I had so many compliments on the soft yarn and fabulous colors that I used for the sweater that I made a shawl from the same type of yarn. 
This wine bottle dress will also be available in the shop.  What a pretty centerpiece, gift wrap, or hostess gift.
 Ponchos are back!  This one is a brown tweed with bold black borders.  One size fits most and is perfect for Fall.
 
 Here's another Lady Bug sweater/jacket, hat outfit complete with a lady bug toy.  This time it's in child size 8.  I have made several of these in baby sizes and will have to restock those in the store soon, too.  I absolutely love the lacy pattern stitch so I designed another outfit for an older child, too.
 Here's a new twist on Lady Bug Baby.  This cardigan set features a flower growing out of a basket that is really a little pocket.  There's a bee on the cardigan flower and a lady bug on the hat flower.  Such a darling outfit in Size 12 months.
Here are more Patchwork Sweaters inspired by the Cat in the Hat.  I can barely keep these in stock.  I've increased the available size ranges, too.  Above is a child size 6 and below is a child size 10. 
 This is what has flowed off of the needles and hooks this month since my last Needlework Update. All items are available in the shop Etsy Shop, EvensensProductions.com, except the first sweater one that is already sold and gone.

I hope you'll stop by the store and take a look at what's available when you're shopping for yourself or for gifts. 

What have you been making this month?

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  :)))

All the very best,
Lois

They are all so beautiful Lois! I've had to quit crocheting for now. Am having carpal tunnel surgery soon.
I loved the sweater with the flower on it and hat, very sweet!
Love Di ♥

Lois, as always, you DO keep busy while at sea and all these are lovely. I have never knitted or crocheted and always admire the ability of those who can.
