Granny stitch cowl

This gorgeous Alpaca yarn was a purchase in Ketchikan Alaska at the cute little yarn shop on Creek Street. It is Mirasol Pagu Pura yarn and was $20. per skein. It was an investment, but I considered it a wonderful souvenir of my visit to Ketchikan. There are two variegated skeins and I stitched it into a kind of granny stripe cowl inspired by this pattern. It is pure heaven to wear, totally worth the expense. The nicest yarn I have purchased and it worked up into the prettiest and softest cowl I have made to date. And added bonus each time I wear it I smile remembering my cruise to Alaska with my mom, and our lovely day spent in Ketchikan Alaska.

Papillon potpourri card case

Oh my, I did not realize how long I have neglected my blog. I have so many project to share, just no desire to type up the details and link to the proper credits for inspirations. I'm crafting a lot, holding monthly stamp-a-stack classes, participating in two card swap groups and beginning to crochet for Christmas presents. But I have no patience for blogging right now, sorry.

The card above, in blues was designed by my friend and SU! upline Tina. She designed this for one of our co-hosted stamp-a-stack classes. I came home and attempted to copy it. I loved hers, my interpretations is just ok to me. Sometimes my tweaks to someones design works out, sometimes it doesn't.

I hope I see you soon. I will try to catch up sharing past projects.
