Knitted while waiting for my mom's eye appt. to end. Sole is about 6" long and I'll slightly shrink them.

sock monkey sheets

Coming home from Seattle, we stopped at Target. Couldn't resist them at $19/queen set.

embroidery image

An image on a tea towel, maybe from the 40's. Looks like a container of knitting needles behind her skirt.

pile o' swippers

Some for gifts, the rest to Nova House. They had been drying on the kitchen floor.

From a neighbourhood yard sale a few years ago. Sarah (took one of my lunch hour knitting classes) only wanted 25¢ for Grommet, so I gave her a couple of my finger puppets.

EZ's baby surprise

Just finished the knitting part. Had to frog twice (did too many rows once and forgot to do one paired increase the other). I thought of doing paired increases at the corners when I cast off and should have to make the corners lay better. I started to edge the front neck but will have to sew the top of the sleeves before I can continue around to the other side. Texas cotton with 3.75mm.

Flair dishes

Most of the pieces were found at a Sally Ann in the early 80's. We don't use them anymore.

walkies and vases

Found at various times. Donald Duck was a Value Village find.

Searching for more vases to photograph, I notice I'm missing two.
