It seems that the past few months I just haven't had the time to do half the things I want/need to do- much more so than normal. Blogging has been one of the things that has been neglected, but I am trying to check in (if you have noticed the abscence of my comments lately I am still reading!).
I mentioned in my last post that Melanie had given me a blogging award. The award came with instructions to pass it on, link to the original creator, etc. In my "breaking the chain" tradition I am not going to do that. What I am going to do is tell you about 5 blogs that I enjoy, that I don't think I have ever linked to before. So, here they are:
http://www.criminyjickets.blogspot.com/- Dave makes LOTS of wonderful socks, and has some free sock patterns as well as a few other fun things.
http://gildedbottle.blogspot.com/- Jeannie has recently started doing some of her own designs. Watch out for her. I think there is a wealth of untapped knitting and crocheted talent waiting to come out.
http://serialknitter.blogspot.com/ -Sunny is another new designer. Just like Jeannie, I think she will continue to to flourish in her creativity. I expect wonderful things!
http://yarnspider.livejournal.com/- I met Sarah over at yahoo 360. She spins and dyes and knits, and has some beautiful projects.
http://spinning-jenny.blogspot.com/ - Jenny always has something interesting OTN. I found her through ravelry, and have been following her blog religiously since the first time I saw her work. Her knitting is truly art.
Just to have a photo to put into this post:
These little turtles are actually crocheted soap sacks. The turtle is part of a reptile bath set that will be available on the Peaches & Creme website this August. It is also going to be the focus of one of the crochet work shops I will be teaching at the Peaches & Creme facotry this summer.
The rest of the set is complete, but no photos will be posted until the kit is available for sale.
Later this week I will be getting together with a friend to learn a new craft! So, hopefully there will be more blogging soon.
