(Here's a picture of me, in case you forgot how I looked!)
So the first project my Mom pulled out was vintage doily pattern that she wrote about here.
As you see, it's still not completed. But look closely at the needlepoint bag with a cat...
The second project, was this undulating waves scarf. My Mom tells me that this knitting pattern makes her go buggy. She does not enjoy working on this project and maybe that's why it's sitting tucked away in the corner of the closet. (The original link to this pattern no longer works but the pattern can be found here on Ravelry....sorry for the inconvenience)
I like the pattern with the beads....please take a close look at the bag....
Finally, she has one more WIP. She bought this yarn in San Francisco's Chinatown. She knows it has wool but since she can't read Chinese, she doesn't know what other fibers. She was starting to make a pashmina but alas it's been relegated to the closet...
She has like 10 skeins of this yarn! I don't know what she will do with all that yarn.
I will leave you with a story of the needlepoint bags pictured above. My Mom saw the first bag on etsy and fell in love with it since it has a beautiful (like me) cat on it. She purchased it from the etsy artist who lived in France and made lovely bags out of old needlepoint canvases. My Mom had bought a piece of needlepoint years and years ago for $1.00. This needlepoint had been sitting around in the drawer for years. She sent this needlepoint to this fabric artist in France who then designed the bag shown in the scarf picture. She loves using these bags; especially since both have a history attached to them.
Hopefully you have enjoyed hearing from me. I"m afraid I need to sign off because I either need to take a nap or wait for my next feeding!
Have a wonderful day.
