Finally! They is done. 24 tiny sweaters, ready for gifting, each unique. Okay, mostly unique. And here they are:
The tiny sweaters fit quite nicely on obnoxiously pink Barbie doll hangers, although they may require painting. The hangers, not the sweaters. Don’t paint your sweaters. Adding a turtleneck makes it hard to hang them, so that can be a thing to consider. But don’t omit the hangers; they are useful if you want to hide something within the sweaters, say a piece of chocolate, which could be taped in or attached to the hanger with a safety pin. Also, the yarn stash has been greatly reduced, which is always a plus.
So the end is that a passel of tiny sweaters is rather enjoyable to make and will use up a bunch of yarn. Now back to the regularly scheduled needlepoint and frog observations.
14:48 in the Piedmont. The storm formerly known as Irma is sputtering its way through South Carolina. Apparently Charleston’s been flooded out. Here, just some normal rain with the occasional gust. So best to stay indoors and needlepoint.
And that’s that.
Major statewide beekeeper conferences. Vacation. Emergency weeks gone to help a friend. A total solar eclipse. Damn bees keep swarming. Large plant Id project to complete. Crafty time is limited to making bee equipment and mending. Damn it! There is just too much to do.
So, in an effort to relieve stress, this blog will be on hiatus until September, 2017. Back in a few months!
…or there was. The cat was mildly amused. The snake, less so. The reptile warded off the cat through liberal release of a particularly horrendous smelling substance. They were separated, the snake released outside and the corner scrubbed. And scrubbed. Then there was some more scrubbing. After about fifteen minutes, the smell was gone. So all is good.
Oh, and it’s a black rat snake, in case you’re curious.
