Needlework Update - January, 2015

Good morning,

This month's Needlework Update includes items finished since the December update and not yet shown here on my blog.  It has been a busy travel month that also included holidays, but I still managed to finish a few items for gifts to give, for custom orders, and for our little on-line shop.

Above is my Pink Lovers Large Afghan Blanket.  It will be a perfect gift for a special Valentine.  ;)
 Also just perfect for Valentine's Day is this Nordic Intarsia Knit roll brim hat. :)
 For Ohio State fans, here's a scarlet and gray Nordic Knit hat, this one with a ribbed brim and pom pom. 
Another little "painted" turtle was "hatched" this month.  :)
This black and white cowl scarf was a custom order...
...as was this green cowl.
The first green cowl turned out so nicely that I made another one for the shop.
 I also made more hats to restock the shop.  These are in the Hats and Caps section of the shop.
 Off White
 Pure White - the picture doesn't give the pure white color justice.


That's it for this month.  I hope you enjoy seeing what flows off of the needles and hooks each month. Thank you so much for your encouragement!  I have to say I truly enjoy seeing all that you are making, baking, and planting, too, as well as all of the fabulous digital images that my fellow bloggers are taking.

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  ;)

All the very best,

Hand Crafted Original and Traditional Designs
