May is coming up Mango

I haven’t posted in quite a while. Among other things I have been learning to use Facebook for our family farm and Pintrest to store links to patterns. ย And as always knitting with a bit of crochet mixed in.

While I am learning I decided it was time to download a photo collage app. I hope this prompts me to take pictures of things I finish.

Here are a few of the <a href=”http://www.the-byrds-nest.com/product/mango-the-giraffe/”>Mango the Giraffes</a> I have finished. I love this pattern. I make it with Spud and Chloe Sweater but any worsted will surely work.

The pattern is well written and I think easy enough for an early in the round challenge. The stripes are really the only fiddle part. And assembly, which I do differently than instructed.

It is a large toy but I think perfect to be a child’s friend. Just enough whimsy to be fun.

Other finished items to follow. For now I am off to knit. I hope you are doing something fun too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Admiring these Beauties

20150224-093340-34420156.jpg
From the DyakCraft site.

I have been wanting them in purple for so long. I like metal needles for a lot of my non dpn knitting. (Not all, because my wooden interchangeables currently hold 4 projects, and I seriously consider buying more cables.). I love their joins. To my knowledge they don’t have a source for more wooden needles. All point to the perfect reason for me to admire these beauties.

Alas, not every want is a need so I have to pass. But maybe you can own them.

I hope you love your fiber tools or at least have time to use your tools today. ๐Ÿ™‚
