Happy 2011! Hope your various holiday duties and pastimes were fun enough that getting back to a regular schedule is a relief... that's how I'm feeling! What have I been up to?
Knit one scarf, and I'm working on another. After the tiny little #1 needle and fingering yarn for the socks, these bulky scarves feel like cheating somehow... and I love it.
I also finally finished covers for the pillow blanks that I bought at ikea. With ikea fabric, of course. I love the attitudes of the birds! The pattern was a little too much for both pillows to be solid, so I did a little piecing on one. There's a third, narrower, pillow still to be covered, but I'm not sure the couch can handle another throw pillow!
A closeup on the embroidery on the front pillow:
Upcoming projects: a wedding veil? I'm still looking for a good diy tutorial for an elbow-length veil with blusher. Also, looking for a job. Still.
What's new with you all this January?
