Needlework Update - May, 2013

Good morning,

It is time for another Needlework Update!  This has been a very busy month with the needles and hooks.

Above is a Sunshine Yellow Lacy Pinafore in size 4 to 6 years.  It has a decorative yellow cat button on the yoke. 
This pinafore is in soft mint green yarn.  It's size 18 months and includes a matching head band with flower to match the flower with decorative button center on the yoke.
 This one is my original cable and lace design and I so enjoyed making it.  It becomes a game to sketch out the designs, then write up the patterns as I make items such as this.  At this writing, it is available in the shop.
This purple wool scarf is on its way to live happily in Italy with a matching hat.  ;)
Yum!  More zero calorie cupcakes.
I can't seem to "bake" enough of these.  They are such fun and perfect to accompany a birthday card for a friend.
And, of course, crocheted dish cloths that can be used as mug rugs (my favorite use), snack mats, and wash cloths (especially great for baby)...
 ...are always welcome.  :)
Two more turtles...
..."hatched" this month, too.  :)
I have had a great time working with entrelac knitting patterns.  This piece is made with sock yarn for a pillow cover that I will complete when I get home. 

Many of these items are already in our on line shop, EvensensProductions.com.  You're invited to come over and take a look.  :)

Here's next month's preview of what's on the needles now:  There's always something fun and I love working on designs for one project while knitting or crocheting another:

A purple basket weave knit sweater - adult size
Another knit entrelac piece still in design that will probably be a cowl/cape.
A purple knit wool hat and cowl scarf set to go into the shop.
A pink child's sweater in design phase.

What are you making now?  I love to see you blogs and what is flowing off of your needles and hooks as well as what you are growing in your garden and baking in your kitchen.  I also so appreciate your comments.

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging. ;)

All the best,

Shopping for Fathers Day, Weddings, Babies and Children?

Wow! Those pinafores (is that the correct spelling?) are just so cute. God only gave me sons and grandsons so I missed the cute girl things along the way! And that sweater that you designed! That is really beautiful.

I misread the title and thought it said "Network Update". I'm looking at dresses thinking "What theee heck?!??!!?"
