for May - the Color Green.
First we have a Chartruese Baby Hat.
Knit in my own pattern.
50 stitches on size 7, Bamboo Double Points.
Sugar and Cream Cotton.
Reverse stockinette knit in Chartruese.
Stockinette rows are in Yellow.
All decreases are knit in the stockinette rows.
It's my new Pocket Purse Pattern.
13, 15, or 17 stitches.
Size 15 Bamboos.
Wool - locally grown.
Mohair? Yes - 2 strands at a time.
The handle is 5 stitch i-cord.
Um. Well, it's just a button I
know how to make. Made with
a sewing needle and the 3 strands of yarn.
The purses I am making for sell at the
Farmers Market? Well, they have
Homespun and Eyelash and no buttons!
TOO CUTE for the 7-12 year old little girls!
I'm thinking in Green.
But, that's all I have gotten knit this month
in GREEN. I've done other knitting.
MUCH sewing. But - as much as I LOVE
the color GREEN? I've only so much material
to work with. I'm still trying to use what I have!
Hmmm .... I wonder what next month's colors will be?????

I've got news.
Someone bought our house.
They close May 31.
As far as we know - at this point - they
are going to let us rent from them.
the View from here is lovely.
A bit shaky. But, I'm thinking I might
plant flowers to celebrate!
Project Spectrum is GREEN this month!
Haven't decided what to knit - or sew - yet.
But, I'm thinking some CHARTRUESE is in order!
Yep. that's what I needed.
I'm thinking that yarn might be a cool baby hat for
And the mug? Hey. French Roast 8o'clock!
And do you see my forever-set-up-at-the-kitchen-table
Sewing Machine? Gonna do some sewin' on her today, too!
I'm also knitting up a prayer shawl for
a friend who had cancer removed from her breast yesterday -
and will be starting the radiation and chemo soon.
God is in Control.
May my hands be His.
My thoughts - prayers of a Sweet Fragrance.
My life in honor of Him.
