Blogging Withdrawl.......

My goodness, I think I went through some blog withdrawl yesterday!!  Here's a pic of the 'Crazy Challenge Basket' I put together.  I want this close at hand.  


And of all the wonderful pieces I selected I chose to work on this beauty yesterday!  


And I finished this hat earlier in the week for a dear friend.  It's knitted using Cascade Yarns Eco Duo - 70% Undyed Baby Alpaca and 30% Undyed Merino Wool....yummy soft and warm.


So, now I feel better.

LOL about the blogging withdrawal! I am going through withdrawal--not seeing your daily posts! ;) Great progress on Garden Glade! The hat is fantastic, too. Great finish!

Gorgeous Garden Glade, I love the shading on the dress. Did you try to do that or did you just stitch as it came off the skein?

Cute basket and hat too :-).

How fun the basket of crazy!! LOL your garden glade is gorgeous, looking forward to seeing all your progress. The hat looks very soft and warm!

LOL about the withdrawal--I did too! If I stop blogging daily, do I cease to exist? Nah--there's still laundry to be done! Love your basket idea--my stuff is in project bags (all over the house).

I love the lady in the red dress - is that a soft green linen? It look wonderful!

Cari, you deserve some blogging withdrawal! That was some crazy 15! I so enjoyed it too! I love your basket full of your projects -- so neat and tidy and ready to go. And your first project -- oh, I'm still kicking myself that I didn't get that when it was the SOM at the Attic. It's so beautiful! Can't wait to see more! The hat is lovely too -- I bet your friend will love it!

Hi Cari - new follower here. Love your new projects and it was great seeing your progress on Garden Glade - mine is kitted up to begin sometime this year. Are you using the conversion form Attic Needlework? I am jealous of Oh Beautiful too as it's been on my wish list for awhile now. Good luck on all your projects!

I love Garden Glade. The colors are beautiful.

Loraine said...

What a perfect way to store all your projects close at hand. Love that idea! Your stitching and knitting is wonderful too!

HA! Blogging withdrawl!! I just loved everything that you posted each day. Maybe you should post everyday - I loved seeing what you pulled out to work on.

Garden Glade - I am so sorry now that I didn't include that in my 15, but that just means I better stitch like crazy and get something done. I'm thinking of doing a woman wall now and that piece would make a great first addition!!

How wonderfully tidy is your basket of projects?! You are going great guns on garden Glade and love the hat - you can actually see how soft it is.

Beautiful colors in your stitching Cari and the hat is great too! Siobhan nailed it when she said she was going through withdrawal regarding the daily posts. I too miss seeing everyone post so often!

Your basket looks so neat! And boy, that hat could be used just about anywhere in the US at this point! I know it's cold here in Michigan!
