Miscellany

Thrift store find............ Amish or Pennsylvania Dutch "Hex" Sign. The Amish use this old form of folk art to decorate & protect their homes. These signs are usually hung on their barns.

The star stands for energy & harmony, love, hope, good fortune, fertility, & protects against fires.











Neckdown pullover by Knitting Pure & Simple. Yarn is "Utopia" by Reynolds.
I've been working on this sweater longer than I care to admit. My goal is to have if completed by Saff at the end of the month. I only lack a sleeve and a half.

I will never buy cheap yarn again as long as I live & put this much time into it!!! I'm embarrassed to say it's 100% acrylic & was only $5.49 a skein.

I wouldn't wear an acrylic sweater from a store much less buy one! What was I thinkin?




My daughter made me this awesome zippered bag for my knitting "stuff"! It's a perfect size (7"x10") & the fabrics she chose are so pretty & cheerful. The inside is as great as the outside. I should have taken a better picture of the lining. Blake even went as far as to machine quilt it! You never cease to amaze me sweetie....




Sophie's Toes "Lush" 100% Merino in garter rib pattern.
Just love these hand dyed beauties. Great yarn from a great friend!
Can't wait to wear them (if it ever cools off)!
