Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  something blue!
today was all about reading, dying my hair, baking cookies, and avoiding the heel flap on kellen's socks.

but guess what! i lied when i said i didn't make anything blue this month! i totally forgot that i had knit a Fiber Trends soap sack! i did the scattered blossoms motif. it was super easy and turned out really well, despite this crappy picture. i'm still trying to figure out good photo spots at the new place.

pattern:Bathtime Blossoms by fiber trends.
yarn: paton's grace (i forget the color name)
needles: US3
i'm going to redo the twisted cord because it's the worst i've ever made in my life. maybe i'll replace it with a satin ribbon like the pattern shows. at any rate, i think this may be a chirstmas gift, possibly for the aunts. i intend to make the washcloths, too.

then i made this little blue kitty necklace. i love it, it's so silly, and i've gotten quite a few compliments on it. (Again, sorry about this crap photo)

the kitty is glass, handmade by our local bead shop owner, the blue beads are glass, and the black beads are plastic.

so there is my meager contribution to june's project spectrum. it's not much, and it's 2 days late, but hey, i've been moving! i'll at least TRY to do some purple on time!
Phew! Glad to see you made it on the PS for June, after all! I really like the soap sack - I'll have to have a look for that pattern.
