Long time!

Hey people!

Just checking in. It has been awhile. Well I finished the rasta hat that I was making. I think I will make another. Right now I am working on a throw for my legs and feet when the summer comes and my partner decides to freeze me out of the house with the A/C. It will be purple and black using lion brand chenille. Oh, so soft! I cannot wait to see the finished product. It is nothing special pattern wise. I am actually using a dishcloth pattern on number 17's. So really simple.

Other than that, I am made some red ribbons for my churches red ribbon Sunday. They are just worsted weight yarn knitted in a strip and then they will be folded like the AIDS Ribbon and pinned on my and my partners lapels or shirts or whatever.

I am considering trying my had at illusion knitting. I downloaded a pattern that is a ribbon when you look at it from the side. The pattern is white and pink for breast cancer. I am considering adapting it for AIDS and make two, on will be white and red and the other will be black and red. If they come out well then I will incorporate them into an art project that I am getting ready for AIDS Delaware's A Day Without Art Auction in December.

On that note, thank you to all who gave hats and scarfs this past winter. It was really cool to receive the items and see what everyone was doing. My favs (they did go to clients even though I liked them) were Rex's hat that I think was a rib knit the whole way and super stretchy and TomH's scarfs. I actually did a couple of scarfs based on one of his patterns. Thanks again! I really appreciated it!
