I got sidetracked yesterday and did not have time to post “Making it on Monday,” so here goes:

I always have more projects going on than time to finish them. But, these are the projects that I have actually done some tangible work on, at the moment:

– Pleated bishop dress for my two-year-old. I love how it’s looking. I wish her sister’s dress were as easy…

– Fall felt garland from this gorgeous tutorial. I pinned this to my Pinterest account since last year, and this year it’s finally getting done.

– My daughter wants a stuffed sheep. I know. So, I’m crocheting her one from this pattern. It is a dog toy, but she does not know that 😉

– The socks are still in the same, pitiful state, so I will not post a picture for those.

That’s about it for this week! What are you working on?

For the love of yarn

I have been working on making these gorgeous Linen Stitch Bookmarks from More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson to give as gifts to friends this Christmas. I have to own this book at some point. All the projects are absolutely beautiful and, to a novice knitter like myself, sampling all the various yarns is simply a delight.

The yarn is a Juniper from Alchemy Yarns of Transformation. It is amazing! Linen-stitch is time consuming, but the result is such a lovely weave! There is a bit of a mistake on the wrong side in this one; can you spot it? 😉

I love knitting. The portability of this craft is extremely appealing to me. I may move on to knitting socks next. Any good pattern recommendations?
