While I truly enjoy spending a few hours just playing around with WordPress, sometimes it feels as if I’m under pressure to find just the right thing.
I did that earlier this week. It took a lot of playing and a bit of tweaking, plus a few other people’s eyes. Here is my final layout:
It is simple. It is clean. I’m going to try to stick with it for all of the weeks. Of course, some will be slightly different. ALL of them need to have an image that represents that week’s lesson.
Get excited… I am. Blair of WiseCraft made a quilt out of Aedan’s clothes. I haven’t seen the pictures yet – the quilt is in Portland with the photographer. Here’s a quick shot of the clothes I sent for her to use.
I’m the youngest of five children; my family and friends blessed me with both an amazing largess of items before he was born, AND hand-me-downs… my three brothers all have kids and two women from church gave me boxes of items. That’s just one reason why I’ve carefully laundered and packaged up the most usable items and sent them on their way to friends who were pregnant or just gave birth. I kept quite a bit for exactly this purpose–maybe some day… a quilt!
I heard back from Blair and she kept out the two items I marked ‘most treasured.’
Using a hook size 0… and sock yarn to make amigurami. This is a foot/leg. The pattern is Fibi by Lalylala. I already started this using dk weight yarn, but I messed up. I have a great fox on the way… but I wanted to check something in the pattern.
I’m thinking I won’t have ANYTHING ready for the Tanana Valley Fair. Bit of a bummer, that.
The knitting you see underneath it is something I started and then gave to my friend Shelly (including the needles) and she is doing a great job as a beginner!
I completely forgot to mention that I’m crocheting Smaug. Pictures to come!
