It’s coming to the end of another weekend and I am thankful that we did not have extremely hot weather. I made fried chicken yesterday and today I started on my seersucker afghan from “Comfort Knitting & Crochet Afghans – more than 50 beautiful, affordable designs featuring Berroco’s comfort yarn. The pattern for this afghan is very easy, and I have to make eight sections of four squares in each. I am in the process of knitting the three square in the section. I was thinking about making a scarf using this pattern, but altering it by having rib stitch so the ends do not roll. I know that there some yarn snobs out there, but using Red Heart for afghans is fine.
I found another jewelry project from Fusion Beads to make. It’s called the world traveler necklace and I placed an other for the beading materials Friday. With any chance, I should receive the order for this sometime mid-week.
I also stopped by Barnes and Noble and picked a copy of Mark Montaro’s “The Big Ass Book of Home Decor” to get some decor ideas to design my apartment. Creativity comes from the need to solve a problem using limited resources. I love the tapped-aluminum wall sconce in the book and wondering about turning it into wall art.
Along with being a knitter, I love to crochet and buy Interweave Crochet for some inspiration and possible to make a project. I have dozens of project I want to make from crochet projects along, not to mention the knitting projects in my to do list mind. Now I have to make a inspiration board of knitting and crochet projects to motivate me to knit and crochet. I like this two-piece crochet cardigan set, and the necklace gives me inspiration to make as well. I also love the cool wave wrap and see ordering some fingering weight yarn from Knit Picks in my future.
I am enjoying my summer from a creative perspective, but certainly not the humidity. I am going to end this blog post to continue watching My Fair Wedding with David Tutera who is helping a bride who has a swamp theme for her wedding, but wearing a ball gown. I still do not understand the idea of frogs, logs, and goldfish as the decor, but watching to see what David does with this wedding. Ciao for now!
