Although I haven't posted here in awhile, September turned out to be a very crafty month. I was able to attend The Palmetto Tatters Guild's Tat Days. Fun times, getting together with friends old and new, taking classes and sharing the love of a hobby. I also attended the Georgia Fiber Fest, held at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center. Capping the month off was a visit to the "The Workes of Our Hands", A Sampler Exhibit of the Magnolia Sampler Guild held at Bulloch Hall, Roswell, GA.
Our Tat Days goody bag and some of it's contents:
I make 2 of Marie's Angels using a variation in the long chain forming the skirt. Marie calls it a hdd (half double double stitch) the first half of the stitch is worked normally then the second half is worked twice before making the flip. By working the second half twice the chain is more stable and doesn't twist as much. The Angel on the right, was found while flipping through Pinterest. I love the simplicity and form of this angel. She still needs blocking.
I managed to knit 2 cowls in September. I need to secure the bind off end and I will have two new items for the change in seasons.
World Wide Knit in Public Week was a big success for my knitting group. I was able to attend 3 of the 5 events that were organized. I managed to complete 2 dishcloths and a small coaster. Both dishcloth patterns were from Knit Picks 52 Weeks of Dishcloths 2014 and the coaster was an online pattern that is crocheted.
I have several classes lined up to take on Craftsy. Right now I am working on One Skein Accessories Chevron Collection. The three pieces included in the class projects are a cowl, hat and a pair of fingerless mitts. I've chosen to work each in the same yarn so that I will have a set for myself or as gift. This will be my first time attempting to make mittens. So far the instructions are very clear and so I hope that I will be able to complete the set.
Hat - end of first pattern repeat
I finally can move on to row three on Renulke's Spring Doily 2015. It got put aside so that I could make Easter eggs and some other things that came up. Round three is just basic rings and chains of the same count so it shouldn't take to long to finish.
Last month I was fortunate to win a Giveaway hosted by Sue of Tatting Lace in Grace. Sue was celebrating her 5th year of tatting and blogging. She was very generous and offered 5 prizes. I received the blue tatted cross. Yeah!!!! I found a Lucite frame to display it, so that it's beauty could be viewed from both sides. Thank you Sue for a beautiful work of art. I love it!!
