A Month of Crafting Goodness

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.

Thanks for stopping by,
