Bloom and grow

When life gets stressful for me, I tend to withdraw. So now you know why the blog hasn't been updated recently. Hubby had a minor medical problem, my 82 yo mother took a fall, and I caught a cold. Everyone is fine now. And I believe I'm back into the swing of it all.

I did managed to finish a needle knitting scarf that was started awhile back. I love the basketweave motif. I crocheted a ruffle around the finished scarf for contrast. The picture doesn't pick up the beauty of this yarn. It sparkles when the light hits it. Perfect for fall!

I have also been looming recently. I did a scarf for a project to teach at Michaels using ribbon and fun fur. Then I finished the felted slippers on the looms.

While this is a knitting blog, I have to add my beading thoughts to it. January wasn't a good month for beading (a huge disappointment during that time). But inspiration has returned and I'm working on a design to enter into a contest. Here's a sneak peak with the spark of inspiration censored until it's completed! When it's finished, I shall be asking for "votes" from you!

Bloom where you are planted

Yea! Love your basketweave scarf! I can't wait to see the rest of your bead project. Sorry to hear you've been under the weather.
