i have been crocheting up storm! i'm making cowls for all my family and friends this christmas. hopefully everyone likes cowls...if not, they're gettin' one anyway ;D heheh i'm funny! they are easy and fun to make. i've been trying out some new stitches and designs. i'm interested to see which is the most popular because i've been considering trying to sell them on etsy. you can check out the one i made for missa here(and the package i sent her for the bioregional swap here). i think she looks quite gorgeous in it, if i do say so myself!
moving on to the knitting portion of this post- last weekend i went to my friend maia's baby shower(check out her kids clothes line here) and her friend, who hosted the party, had the best baby shower gift idea ever!
she had a basket of knitting needles that had a couple rows started and had people pick out a color and start knitting. six people took a color home to finish and then she is going to attach all the pieces together and make a baby blanket. isn't that fun! i took the orange yarn and have been slowly working on it. i can't wait to see it finished!
it was so cool to see everyone working away. a couple ladies were new to knitting, so not only did they get to enjoy a super fun baby shower, they also learned to knit!
if i ever host a baby shower, i'm totally stealing this idea.
happy st. lucia feast day!
