Here comes May!

I am so happy that we are saying good-bye to April, for no particular reason really, except that I want to see more green growth and flowers and the sun!  Something like this!

To the knitters out there – have you ever worked on a new project, followed the directions, and still you see that something is just now right!  I have pulled this project out once already and look!!  I don’t blame anyone but myself and it is driving me crazy. The stitches are decreasing and I, of course, don’t want them too? The pattern is said to be originally from the Purl Bee (but I couldn’t find it there?) but I located it on We Wilsons and it is the perfect pattern of a Market Bag. (Just what I have been looking for – for Boho Chic Boutique) So, I am going to try again, so wish me luck. I am determined to figure this out!!

Rainy Days

So, yesterday was one of those days that started out on the low side.  The weather forecasted rain and that, can and did, give me one of those headaches that you really wish would not mess up your day.   One of those days that you wish you could just shut off the alarm and pull up the covers.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t.  On top of that, it was an intense day at work too.  I went through the day not feeling my best, working really hard to stay focused.  I don’t often complain, but it was one of those days. (thanks for letting me vent!)

As you know, I have a been selling some of my items at Boho Chic Boutique and recently they celebrated their one year anniversary!  It was great fun, meeting other artisans, friends, and family of Boho.  Surprisingly, I just found out that I (me!) won the raffle that they had!  So excited to have won a $100 gift certificate.  I can’t wait to start shopping!  Thanks Boho!

I have also been working on one of my projects for spring/summer items for Boho.  Here are some pictures!  Really wish I could find more time to keep on knitting….

The yarn is from Bernat brand and it is 72% cotton and 28% nylon. It is in bulky weight and the colors remind me of the sea.

Happy life, happy knitting,

Welcome April!

The months are just going by so quickly.  Hopefully, the spring weather will continue and we will all enjoy a mild, sunny spring!

Have to show you my two new necklace creations from felting with bf.

Happy knitting, happy felting, happy life,
