Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on}


Still moving slow and steady on Baby L's wheat milo. All I need to do is find a good 15 minutes of guaranteed, uninterrupted time to myself to graft the top and bottom together. Yeah - we'll see when that happens!


You see this beautiful robin's egg blue yarn here? It is destined to become a hat for me. The problem is that I can't decide on a pattern.I know there are many talented knitters reading this...won't you help me? The yarn is Tosh DK and is a skein of 225 yards. I was planning on knitting the Odessa pattern which has been in my queue since I first learned to knit back in Virginia but now I am rather wanting something a bit more fun and detailed... at least I think I do. Odessa isn't fully out of the running just yet, but I would love to see anything you may have to suggest. Please, don't be shy - speak up and let me know.


Here's K's contribution to this week's KCCO. She made this little girl gnome in school yesterday - how cute is that?! She was pretty proud of herself and has since made an army of gnomes at home for her siblings using my scrap yarn. I am pretty sure the instructions for this sweet yarn doll are in one or two of my favorite craft books: The Children's Year: Seasonal Crafts and Clothesor All Year Round, but I didn't get a chance to double check. I found these instructions, too. They are slightly different using a book to wrap the yarn around instead of a small piece of cardboard and seem to make a bigger doll, though.
