I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit (and weave now, too!) but I seem to take more photos of my toddler than my crafts these days. She has that cute factor going for her. Because of this, I have started a tumblr called Tiny Taughts of our home lessons, crafts and projects. Please visit me there and I promise to come back here soon!

Fee fi FO fum

I smell some knitty things I have done! Felted, wet wool does stink. Today's slang lesson for knitting illiterate is FO ... finished object.

Friday Night Knitting gal friend Barbara inspired my photo session today. Her knitting projects often lay among her beautiful flowers in her garden.

Pinwheel dishcloth
Pinwheel dishcloth. This took some stretching to make it into a circle in the end. That's why the garter stitch looks all lacy. The cloth is laying over some lilies, not yet in bloom. In my efforts to not choke them this year, I only added a few coleus plants.

Raggedy elephant
Raggedy elephant, from a mystery loom-a-long on Ravelry (login required). He turned out very special and I can't help but love him.

Felted purse
Felted purse for someone special. I guess it's technically still a WIP since I still need to add a liner and button snap. Oooh, and check out my Hawthorne tree, finally in bloom. Isn't she pretty?!

Which button to use?
So ... please help me choose a button! Big or small ... which color ... modern or antique?

I did a little rummaging today and found a kid's knitting machine at a church sale. Plat's been saying to buy a knitting machine because it will be more efficient. I respect his opinion but disagree. I love the process too much. Soo ... I wonder if this is what he meant? ;-)

The Real Knit and Gem Machine
The Real Knit and Gem Machine for $2. Who wants some fun fur scarves?!

The Friday Night Knitting gals are about to see this baby crank in action. I know they'll be jealous and toss their silly knitting needles out the window.
