Dishcloths To Be Gifted

A friend at church wanted me to knit her up some dishcloths.
They turn out really nice. I made some wrappers for them, I think
they make a nice presentation. I just got Michelle's market tote done
need to tuck in my ends and then I will post a picture.
Hugs, Dusty

Paper Chain Dolls What Fun

Awhile back a friend was over and made Makaila a paper chain doll. So I got my surfing boots on and surfed the net for instructions on how to make them. In the process I found a paper chain for, Fancy Nancy Dolls chains. There are these books about Fancy Nancy, Fancy Nancy loves to be well, um, Be Fancy. So for Valentine's Day I happened to find one of these books and it was entitled, Fancy Nancy, loves, loves, loves. Perfect! So we read the story and then made our chain. She had allot of fun decorating them. Well, then Grandpa comes upstairs with this big table covering paper and folds in and Makaila makes a huge chain of paper dolls. And of course Grandpa had to to the twisted snake paper chain. Nice activity. Hugs, Dusty

More knitting and the boys

Thought I would try an experiment with the boys. So I put this friendly looking toy in their play pool. Yikes at first they both ran into the tube and just stayed there making chucking noises which is not good at all. So I remove the scary item and waited an hour and put it back in. This time they got curious about this new creature among them. Timothy put his cheek next to his new friend and stood real still. Little Bit give it a kiss (ok he really was trying to bit his tongue off). They figured it was a safe friend cause it just sat there and did not even try to move around. It was fun to watch.

Another knitting adventure for me. Making some soap sacks. This is the frist one. I need to put a hanger on it so it can be hung up on the shower rack intween uses. There seems to be lots of people who enjoy using these. I got the pattern on Raverly. If you are not familar with Raverly it is awesome. It is a knit and crochet community. Lots of free patterns, tips and information.

What I Been Up To

The guinea pigs are now about 8 months old and thriving. Here are some pics in their freshly cleaned cage. Timothy (golden one) goes right for the hay. Little Bit goes for the treat bites, he has my heart he always seeks out dessert. He seems to like it under his loft he drags everything under their to check it out. I am hoping by fall to get them a bit bigger cage with a loft at the other end as well. They keep me entertained.

I finished this shawlette for a friend of mine. It is done in blues with some sparkle yarn. It is pretty when the light hits the little bits of glimmer.

I have a dragon scales scarf I need to finish up next. It is about 3/4 of the way done.
Then I have my eye on a felted bag for me. I am really enjoying my knitting and I am amazed at how much I am getting done.

Have a great day and catch you all later...Hugs, Dusty
