Pillowcase Dress

Last week I turned this pillowcase

into this dress.

I'm not particularly good at sewing, so it's pretty much a pillowcase toga, but I'm ok with that.

FO: Jar of Love

I made this "Jar of Love" for Jessica Heywood. She took the beautiful pictures. You can tell because, despite my very powerful photo editing software, I don't know how to use it!

The hearts are the Mochimochi Land hearts with an acrylic yarn. There is a knitted bird in the Jar of Love as well. It's made with Encore Worsted yarn and I used the Spring Chick pattern.

FO: Finger Labyrinth

Pattern: Baltic Finger Labyrinth  (Ravelry link)
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Sock in Archangel

It was cloudy today for the picture and in my attempt to get the settings on the camera to work well in overcast lighting, these colors turned out very bright. I personally think they are more jewel-toned.

The pattern says to do garter stitch, but I did stockinette because I'm not going to actually use this as a meditative finger labyrinth, but as a wall-hanging. I think the design is beautiful. I'll probably frame it.

This was also my first project with my fancy new blocking kit I bought at Stitches. It looks good, doesn't it?

WIP Wednesday

A look at what's on the needles today!

I finished this sock during General Conference, but I'm going to re-do the bind off and I need to get started on the second sock. This will be for my mom. We have similarly-sized feet (mind are wider), so if they fit me, they'll fit her.

A sneak peak of a gift I'm working on.

A finger labyrinth. Finger labyrinths can be used for textural meditation.

And, as always, the rainbow shawl. I'm in the middle of frogging a couple of rows because I forgot which row I was on and messed up the lace pattern. Because it's so fragile, I can only work on it when both the kids are asleep, so if you suspect that I don't get much time to work on it, you guess correctly.
