From Forget Me Nots to Carnations

I’m addicted to fiber mysteries


I’ve always been interested in mysteries, so it stands to reason I would indulge in mixing my crafty interests with my reading pleasures.  Fortunately, there are a few of these series, some of which I enjoy and others I read, but drive me crazy. Maggie Sefton, Anne Canadeo, Mary Kruger, Monica Ferris, Sally Goldenbaum, Amanda Lee  and Betty Hechtman  all have series based on knitting, crochet or embroidery. I’ve scoured them all and will give you little series reviews  in future posts. Some have patterns and recipes, or links to them  at the end of each book. I have not made any of these yet, but some are on my “to-do” queue in Ravelry.

The baby blanket for my future nephew, plus a little bomber jacket was completed. I was happy with both, but would love a better way to weave in the ends of cotton yarn and must get better at baby buttons and buttonholes. The pictures don’t do colors justice so pretend they are prettier.

I’m making another pair of socks for Mike, specifically designed to be comfortable for the diabetic.  I’ll post a pattern for these in my next post and link it to Revelry too. I’m also knitting the Churchmouse Yarns & Teas, Easy Folded Poncho with a cowl neckline. I’m doing that out of the James C Brett DK yarn I’ve had in my stash for ages.  This is really a no brainer project and great to do while watching television.  No concentration required.
