Hi all! It has been a busy time lately, but lots of fun. We’ve been involved in a project that is almost ready to be blogged about, but not quite. So hang on a bit longer, and take a look at the table mat I finally finished using the wool I bought in Oaxaca last June.
I had intended to felt it but I think I might like it just the way it is. Plus, when it is felted it will shrink – probably a lot more than I would like. I love the color and what it does for the room, with the same rich burgundy color on the walls. If you’d like the pattern for the table mat, it is the Ten Stitch Twist available on Ravelry.
I’ve started on a throw for our bedroom – our latest project. We have been overhauling it, trying to give it more personality. It’s not quite done yet – I need to make the curtains and the throw, of course. I’ll probably show you the results when it’s done.
It seems early to us, but we have already said goodbye to our first snowbird. He headed back to Canada early to get just a bit of winter weather this year. We store two bags of his personal items every year, and I get the use of his barbells over the summer, an every day reminder of our friendship.
