If it's Tuesday, I must be wheezy.
This week though I did have yarn fun! Saturday was World Wide Knit in Public Day. The local group of Prescott Knitters had a booth at the Farmers' Market, so I joined them. It was fun to see everyone's projects and chat with shoppers passing by. I also got to see some old friends which was very nice.
I thought these vegetable market bags would be appropriate projects for the day and had a lot of fun with them. The mesh bag is hidden inside until you are ready to fill it up! I even had someone ask me to make her a tomato bag without the mesh part.
Because we're winding down for the end of the month with my Ravelry groups, I am trying to finish up some of the yarn left lying around after other projects.
Along with the dragon hat at the top, I made this light and summery garden hat and scarf - so soft! I was amazed at how much yarn was in this skein because I already made a pair of fingerless mitts for my friend Greta, and still had enough for the hat and scarf.
My grandson Topher came up on Sunday for a quick visit so I whipped up the blue baby dragon he had asked me for (thanks for the photo Christy!). It was fun to see his face when he saw the dragon sitting on our table. He knew right away it was the one he asked for, and named him fluffer-somethingorotherthatchangeseachtimeyouask.
I also made the minion beanies Christy and I had laughed about. Two grandsons = two minions, right?
Last, but definitely not least, I've been working on items for Steampunk Addie. I'll post photos next week when she comes by for a visit and can model for us!
