Here are some photos of the teeny garments that will be clipped to the note cards I'm working on for my grandmother:
These aren't my sweater and sock- those are in the book :) How cool are the little clothespins? They really work too- in case I ever shrink, at least I know I'll be able to still do my laundry.
Here's the first little sweater- it's made out of the Paton's Lacette and man, is it tiny. I'm glad that only one side is visible once it's clipped to the card since I screwed up the decrease seam on the back side.
The sock is a little bit bigger than the sweater- it's actually made of yarn from the kit that I bought from Serendipity 3 last summer when I wanted to learn how to knit! This too has a messed up back side, so don't tell my grandma...
I liked Karen's idea of a tiny mitten- I think a thumb is possible if i make it out a smidge of I-Cord instead of trying to make a little tube.
Oh, and here is the shrug that I have barely started on from the Lion Brand Vintage book- it's on hold until i finish the cards.
Time for bed- everyone in our house is very sleepy...
Who knew you could snuggle up in a tank of water?
Our random Chuck Norris fact for this St. Patrick's Day:
"Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried."
Finally, check out Tom Wopat's run in with the law- Luke Duke- you aren't supposed to get caught running the shine... Too bad Waylon Jennings wasn't there to narrate the arrest.
