|It's been so long since I posted any of my projects that I don't remember what I might have already shown you? I did a quick search of the Projects threads and Magpie Chatter and can't find anything so here's my attempt to bring you up to date....
Since my period of "disability" started with knitting while I was forced off my feet I'll show you what kept me busy with knit items for my grandson.
I keep encouraging my daughter to send me ideas for things she likes and she sent me this pic of a football hat from Etsy.
I just happened to have some leftover brown yarn and got started immediately! It was ready to send in the first box with Chase's first sweater and hat set. "Next" time I try one I'll use a pattern instead of just winging it! Poor little guy is going to look like a conehead!
I also shipped a small photo frame for Chase's room. Didn't turn out exactly like the vision I had in my head - what was supposed to be a mosaic alligator to match the room decor ended up looking more like a lizard! Oh well, at least the colors matched his room!
In the same box I was finally able to finish the mailbox I had promised my son-in-law for over a year! He probably would have preferred a "Red Sox" theme but my original idea was to paint all the wildflowers Emily and I spotted in the woods behind our home when she was a child.
First box shipped to Maine in August!
