Knitting Friends Are the Best!
Now - Pixie and I have a lot in common - besides knitting. One of the things - we have a habit of dropping our cell phones... So, I decided to make a little felted cell phone case for her. Of course, in some of her favorite colors - turquoise & brown - and also to match her knitting bag. It is a Bernat pattern (it is for members only - but the membership is free). It has a little handle with a star button, so she can attach it easily to any other bag or her belt etc. And here it is.
Since Noah decided to hang out with me while I was finishing up the cell phone case, I used his butt for modeling the unfelted case. ;-)
OK, OK - here is a better picture of the unfelted case - without a doggie butt...
And now the cell phone case after felting. I used one of my favorite CowParade cows as a stand-up aide. It is the "BLACK TIE DOG" Cow by George Rodrigue. It was introduced in 2000 at the Chicago CowParade and is now retired. You will not believe how much you have to pay nowadays for this highly collectible item (over $1,500)... Yeah - I can hear you - but this is just a little ceramic cow... Well - when there are collectors who really want something bad, you have a crazy market, even if it is just for a cow! ;-)
On Sunday I didn't do much since we actually had "bad" weather. Finally we got all the desperately needed rain our poor plants were waiting for - HURRAH! So, hubby and I hung out with the dogs and watched a couple of movies. And I got a bunch of knitting done.
I got back into the groove with the white cable sweater - here is a reminder:
I am almost finished with the back which is the biggest piece. The front has a huge V-neck. Anyway - I had not touched this project in a long while since I got pretty annoyed because it has so many stitches and so many cables. I guess, I just needed to get back to it with a fresh mind.
I also finished the Accidentally On Purpose Drop Stitch Vest from Stitch'N Bitch Nation. Now I have to sew it together and block it. I'll take some pictures once I have more FOs. ;-)
Have a great week!
