I'd like to start off by thanking Amanda of K is for Knitter
for nominating me for the Rockin' Girl Blogger award!
These awards were started by Roberta Ferguson
, and now I am supposed to 1) give her credit, 2) put up the badge and 3) add 5 other rockin' girl bloggers to the list.
Here are my nominees. This is hard!Auntie Ann
, my bestest blogging buddy, and her totally sweet socks.Sherri
, who knits beautiful things and has a beautiful outlook on her faith and family.
Amy of Sea Anemone
, because she finds such awesome fabrics and colors and OMG I wish I could sew as well as her (or at all).
Melissa of Indigo Mouse
, who has great taste in sweaters and writes about her projects so well.
Heather of Knitting and Reading
, because I love reading about fun books when I don't have time to read the books themselves.
Whew, that was a lot of HTML. Ok, well Amanda nominated me because (blush) I "always [have] amazing projects to show off." Lucky for you guys, I plan on living up to that in this post!
I finished the knitting on Wednesday...
...but it still wasn't looking great as a veil.
Before, with yardstick for scale: about 38" across.
And after, about 60" across.
Click to embiggen. The only detail shot I took was a closeup of the thing's one flaw, and I don't really feel the need to show that one around ;-)
In this blog's long tradition of crap photography, that's all I have for you right now. But I should be able to get better pictures next weekend, so stay tuned.
Oh, and you will have to wait until March to see me play ghostie again.
