Hello again. I thought I would stop by today and show you the mittens and gloves I've been knitting. The yarn I used for these mittens is sooooo soft. It's a blend of 70% Merino and 30% Angora hand spun and hand dyed that I bought at the MD Sheep and Wool Festival.It's so soft I think I might have to make some for me! These are Kellie's Nintendo DS gloves that are in the works. I still need to sew in all of the ends. She likes that she can still use her fingers to play her DS in the car. And these regular gloves are almost finished too. I bought some really pretty hand dyed yarn over the weekend to make gloves to list on etsy. I can't wait for that to come. It's a blend of 80% lambswool, 10% dehaired angora and 10% cashmere. It should be beautiful and super soft.
Mark doesn't understand my crafty crafty ways. If he sees me sewing or knitting or beading or whatever he calls it playing even if I'm working on something I plan to sell - which I can tell you makes me nuts because it immediately makes me feel guilty. I was raised in a house where my mother was a cleaning fanatic. Fanatic! She looked at quilting/sewing as play time. It's crazy how hard that idea is to get over. If I'm cleaning I get cranky because I want to make something. If I'm making something I feel guilty because if I have time to play I have time to do something important like clean. You know what I mean. So even when I am making something that I am thinking of selling I still feel incredible guilt over taking the time to make it. It's crazy I know but boy is it hard to change the way I view these things especially since Mark doesn't really see it as anything but goofing off. Anyhoo, Mark was reading the newspaper on Saturday and he always reads our horoscopes ---
Mine: Concentrate on creative pursuits this week and perfect your craft.
Marks: To be happy in your relationship this week you will need to keep your mouth shut.
LOL! How perfect was that! We laughed and laughed about that.
Have a happy Monday!
