On The Needles (and off) Friday

Last week I tried one of the ornaments...........  It knitted up quickly........



And glued rather nicely to a glass ornament..........  I have had that pattern for years but never was able to find the satin ornaments so I never tried it.........  This works out rather nicely..............  Now to go upstairs and find more ornaments to knit a bit of lace for........


Jean's socks are all done and I can start knitting a pair for Bill...........  His will not have sparkles however.....



One dishcloth begun and nine more to make..........  I have made over 30 this year and given them all away....  I am still getting request so I suppose I will continue to make them.......



Great progress on my Company Sock..........  I keep a plain sock in the bag Peg made for me and keep it hanging on the arm of the chair in the breakfast room........  When someone stops by for tea I have something to keep my hands busy while we talk.........



I have also knitted four tassels.....  They are not complete yet as they need to be sewn together and I will stuff the top with a bit of a cotton ball.............  I hope to get enough made to decorate a small tree and sell them at the church bazaar............
Go to Patchwork Times (HERE) to see just what else is on the needles

  2. Great inspiration! I have a lot of the frosted glass ornaments, some the same lovely burgundy you show. These would be good for our church bazaar. You have so many wonderful ideas, thanks for sharing them!
