Owls, cables, and roses...
Remember that overgrown rosebush I hacked down a few weeks ago? It was showing no growth whatsoever, and now...
it's been blooming like this for the past 2 weeks (this photo taken on 6/16!!)
I was talking about knitting Christmas gifts the other day....I found this link for cute gift labels you can put on your Christmas knits. Pretty and a nice presentation for washcloths or whatever you knit! (I found this last year, but have not used them yet....)
Maybe I'll start a Sharfik from Grumperina for a Christmas gift....would be a very nice gift!
How clever is this: A ball-band Swiffer cover!!!! What a cool idea--except for the fact that when I swiffer, I am removing giant wads of dog hair in 2 colors, as well as dust. NOT something I want to be putting into the washing machine. Which is why I am using disposable covers in the first place!
Here's a knitted version of the cupcake scarf! Fun.
And this is kinda cute: owl cable hats! Hat pattern here, but not sure I like them in one color--they just don't look enough like owls until you knit them in different colors. Or isolate one owl like in the owl cable mittens....and an owl cable bag....
Owls remind me of my gramma, who passed away 4 years ago. I really miss her, but her influence on my life is permanent! I think of her often. She used to collect owls, and my grampa has a house filled with her lifetime collection of neat woodsy things.
