Color Affection Accomplished

August 1, 2012

I finished my color affection shawl today.  It’s blocking.  It’s a little itchy.  For some reason, I got it in my head that I was knitting with alpaca.  I didn’t.  It’s merino and mohair.  Hence the itchiness.  I think it is a little better.  I picked the yarn more for the colors.  Love the colors.  It turned out well.

I even made time to make some spaghetti sauce.  Joshua played in his playpen and watched me chop.  I love this sauce.  Most of the stuff is from our garden, supplemented by some farmer’s market tomatoes and an onion from the whole foods.  But mostly from the garden.  :-)

Lastly, my little man helped me fold laundry.  And he showed off his teeth.  Such a sweet little boy.  Melts my heart every day.

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.

My Etsy Shop

A place for me to sell my handmade goods. My style? It's fun and funky with a hint of romance.
