Well I am really pleased to announce that I sold my first circular pin cushion on eBay today. Ok, I didn't make that much money, but every little bit I do will go toward sending blankets and hats to children in South Africa. I'm really pleased, and I hope the person that bought it likes it as much as I do!
On another topic, I found a quick, cute project yesterday. It is a knitted flower! There reason I went looking for a flower is all about a circular loom. We were at Cost Co. the other day and couldn't resist buying a knitting kit with 12 balls of yarn, a circular hat loom, and a few other bits and pieces. I knocked out my first hat pretty quickly, but it looked a bit bland to me. So I thought, why not embellish it with a flower, and the search began.
Is the site I found, and it only took about an hour to make it. Give or take a bit, I had to keep getting up and helping the kids, hanging the laundry, you know what I mean. Anyway, here is mine:
I needed to use a thicker yarn for the middle bit, but not a bad first go I think. I think if I persevere with the loom I'll try out a variety of flower patterns.
