Then in February my son and Dear Daughter-in-Law (everyone should be so blessed!) joined us on a cruise and my DDIL (Juli) is a spinner AND she brought her spindle and fiber to be spun. I just followed along the theme and brought my hooks and some yarn. Oh, I just loved it! Of course Juli attracted a lot of attention, but I just LOVED sitting there in the sun or enjoying an adult beverage on the ship and working with my hands.
On that cruise I started (and finished, amazingly enough) a little bag for my camera, a market bag, and an organizer for my hooks.
I made this cute little makeup pouch--don't you just love that little flower?--and it's for sale on my Etsy shop.
This is the shawl I just finished last night. It's drapped across my mannequin in my very messy sewing room. The yarn is a alpaca/silk blend I picked up at The Yarn Shop in League City. I wanted a very simple pattern, since the yarn is so lovely, so I just did a series of three double crochets separated by a single chain stitch, across and back, across and back. There are three skeins of yarn in this beauty.
So, I'm having fun--what neat and interesting things are YOU up to?
