Knit Lions

I finally finished these 2 knit lions for my kids, from Nicky Epstein's Block by Block book.  I'm not quite happy with them, but at least they are DONE!  I like the turtle pattern better, but they were still alot of fun to make, so easy!  Maybe rabbits next for Easter? hmmmm.....

1/2 of Poncho

I've been in the middle of lots of different projects lately, and can't seem to finish any of them!  Here is 1/2 of a poncho I'm working on before it gets too warm here in Virginia.  Of course I didn't pay attention to the pattern until too late, it's not supposed to have fringe on both sides, but somehow I will make it work!  I'm making it in the same scrap knit style using my stash like I did for my daughter's blanket, so fun!

I'm also making a planet pinata for my son's birthday party Sunday, and trying to finish up his knit lion for his birthday, more pics to come....

Valentine's Roses from my Hubby!

Hubby tried to be crafty for Valentine's Day to woo me, and it WORKED!  He made a dozen foam roses from scratch as a surprise for me, so sweet!

Valentine's Yarn Hearts

I got this idea from Family Fun magazine, I made hearts for my 6 year old daughter's class, and they kinda look like they've been made by a 6 year old!!  Still, they are fun and cute...  Just make a cornstarch paste and coat the yarn pieces, then use a cookie cutter for the heart shape and let dry.

Craftster Best of 2010 Winner
I'm a Craftster Best of 2010 Winner!  

Check me out, I won one of Crafter's Best of 2010's for my stained glass window!  I'm going to make another later in the month at my next class to sell, so there WILL be another one out there too!

Knit Turtle from Nicky Epstein's class

This turtle is what I made in my NYC class with Nicky Epstein out of one 10 inch block, so cute and ingenious!!  Now the kids have demanded lions, also from her new book, so I'll let you see that progress soon!

1st Sock done! One to go!

Finally finished 1 sock, but now I'm having lotsa trouble getting the next one started because my guru isn't around!  This sock turned out way too big, but it sure will be comfy!
