Needlework Update - March, 2013

Good morning,

It's time for another monthly needlework update once again.  My how time flies!

I don't have quite as many items this month because we have had a couple of road trips, house guests, and have enjoyed being home to use our own kitchen for the past few weeks.

Above is a project I just finished and put into the shop.  It is an absolutely marvelous full size afghan blanket and was so much fun to make.   Of course, it's perfect for Spring or any time of the year.
Above is a circles and squares lap or baby size afghan blanket that is a different version from the first.  I just love these colors!  Who says baby blankets only have to be pastels?  These are such happy colors.  This is also a perfect lap blanket, wheelchair blanket, and doubles as a shawl when folded as a triangle.
The knit tunic sweater above was a special order.  It's super soft and cuddly.
This is an absolutely wonderful 100% Canadian wool hat.  It is the third one I have made in this color and now I'm out of the yarn, but I'm looking for more. 
These are luggage ID tags that are fabulous when you are searching for your luggage among hundreds of others in the airport or on the cruise ship dock.
And, finally for this month here are a few more...
...sets of three 100% cotton mug rugs that can also be used as snack mats, or wash cloths. 

As of this writing, many of these items are available in our on line shop, EvensensProductions.com.   If you click on any of the images you'll go directly to more pictures and information about them or similar items.

I also have a favor to ask.  If you're on Facebook and haven't already done it, I will GREATLY appreciate it if you'll like the EvensensProductions Facebook page here:


The more likes it gets, the more exposure the shop gets in the search engines.

Thank you!

More to come next month.  I will surely have more time to knit and crochet so there will be more items to share with you here.  Also, I love reading about and seeing what you are all knitting, crocheting, quilting, and crafting. 

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  ;)

All the best,



Beautiful work. I'm in the middle of crocheting a camera bag for my camera [of course]....but it's come to a stand still as I'm making my own pattern and contemplating how to make a 'closure' for it.

I especially like your idea of luggage tags!!! What a great concept.

My wife would love this.

Did you say you were coming down here on a cruise ship?

Ginger Zuck said...

Wow, Lois, beautiful things you've created. I would be interested to see how much you usually get done in a month if this was a slow producing month! You are so talented.

Michelle said...

Gosh, you must always have something in your hands, with all the things you make.

Beautiful things!!

Lovely work as always!

I LOVE that tunic sweater.

As for baby blankets...I love pastel quilts...BUT I never have made one...not a single one. I always feel like they will love the bright colors. I have read that it is good to use black and white to stimulate them.
