Crochet and some Knitting too!!

I've picked up my knitting needles again to test these 2 dishcloth patterns.

The beige one is called Southwest and the fuschia is called Flurry.

They are to be submitted to a Knit Dishcloth Calendar. I was very pleased with the outcome of both and hope the designer will call on me again when she needs more patterns tested.

The chicken is just because Rob (DH) has a thing for chickens and therefore I did this one. The pattern was from an old magazine.

It's looking like the Planet of the Apes here!!

I made another sock monkey....this time it's a tote bag.
I was testing this one for Andrea again and the pattern is for sale at her Etsy site HERE

I made a friend for Pinky too.
The ladybug is a pincushion.

Hello again....I have just finished testing this crochet sock monkey tea cozy. The 2 together is of the new crochet cozy and the knit cozy I tested for Andrea in May. Her etsy site is HERE and will have the crochet pattern for sale soon.

The square is one I made for an exchange.
I mailed it out on friday.
The pattern is one I hadn't seen before and since it was to be a 12" square I had to add a few extra rows of dc to get the size right. That pattern can be found HERE. It's a pretty one and a great way to use up scaps.

Happy Canada Day!!!!

So it's Canada Day 2007 and all is well in my world!
That is a wonderful thing.

I just finished this new outfit for Pinky! I keep thinking of amusing things to dress her in and this was my newest design.

I've also made a Magic Ball purse. I still have to sew a lining into it but this is what it looks like so far.
Have a great July4th to all of my American friends!
