I am one of those people who always has more than one craft going at a time. So when I got bored of working on my cross stitch I switched over to the blocking of my first sweater (my project notes are on Ravelry for anyone who is interested).
The Shapely Boyfriend Sweater from Knitty is a pattern I have admired for a long time, but had never had the time (or the courage) to attempt. I finally decided just to dive right in. It was a quick project, taking just a little under a month to do. And I love the fact that I could try it on as I went! I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease, leftovers from a previous project. And fortunately I had buttons in my crafting stash that worked well. So now its back to the cross stitch bread cover... with two days left to finish it. Fingers crossed it gets done!
Hi all! This is my first blog post so please bear with me.
To kick things off I thought I should introduce myself. I am the oldest of four girls in a small town in Missouri. I have always been a crafter, and my addiction has only grown stronger. I currently have three boxes of yarn shoved under my bed with random skeins tucked around my room, two storage bins of craft supplies in my closet, and odds and ends of crafting stuffs around my parents' house. I have also planned out a variety of crafts for the summer.
One of my friends that I've known since kindergarten is getting married and I've been searching for a bridal shower gift. I had the good fortune of having my mom suggest a bread cover, similar to the one that I embroidered for her for Mother's Day. So, in true procrastination fashion, I gathered the supplies a week before the project would need to be completed.
I just want to do a simple, geometric design in black (which, after a brief discussion with my sister it was agreed that black and white goes with most everything). Included with the gift will be a bread basket and a few of my favorite bread recipes (you will soon learn that I love to cook).
