I have been snowed in at my daughter’s house for four days now. Fortunately, Mama is here with me to help watch PJ. The only craft supplies I have with me are in my knitting case.. I had made PJ a cap earlier from Bernat Bamboo yarn, but it was too short. Luckily, I had some more of the yarn and a crochet hook in my case, so I increased the depth of the cap by adding several rows of single crochet.
I got one more thing done before my daughter and I dug out of the ice and snow at her house. I got a “prototype” curtain done for one of the windows in PJ’s room. The curtains are basic ivory grommet style. My daughter’s friend bought the blue zebra print fabric for tableclothes for her baby shower. I asked my daughter to save it, and it’s basically appliqued on the bottom of the shortened ivory curtain. We like the results, so it’s one down and two to sew!
No, I didn’t knit this, but I did buy the pattern. It was a reward I gave myself for completing an errand I was dreading (returning a coat that was purchased as a gift and did not fit.) It’s called Brandywine Shawl and is by Rosemary Hill. The pattern cost $6.50 and $5.00 of it goes to Haitian relief efforts. It is available at http://www.designsbyromi.com/
