Stuff Just For Me

I just wanted to show off two of my latest creations.

The first is my attempt at the Wren pattern. I used some Lorna's Lace Shepard Sock Yarn in Hermosa. I like how it came out, but I may reposition the button.

The second item is a tam, just for me to sleep in. I have heard that sleeping in a wool hat will help them dread... so bingo! That what I want to make! I used Fisherman's Wool from Lion Brand in Nature's Brown. The yarn was different to work with... as it felt at times slippery or greasy. I dont know how to explain it, but the final product was just fine. Maybe it was because it was 100% wool and I had never worked with wool like that. I started out using a pattern from a book I had, but pretty quicky I went off the 'chart' and just went free form. It still worked out just fine.

Love the work! It's nice to make things for ourselves once in a while, isn't it?

I am not sure if it will work for you, but it worked for me. My blogs were gone off my dashboard this morning, too. What I did was go to a blog that I knew I had been following before they all disappeared, and I signed into the blog using the link in their followers box, and a few minutes later my blogs all came back. Maybe you can try that although like I said it may not work for you. Good luck.

And of course both people on the forum thread have blogs with unmoderated comments, lol. But hopefully you will see it and it will work. Have a nice day, PussDaddy
