A half-done horse and Shalom of course!


Sorry I missed you yesterday - took a sick day as I had what I believe to be my first migraine.  Ugh.  I couldn't even nap, it was so painful!

But today - feeling much much better!

I'm just popping in for a minute, however, because in 15 minutes Spring Fling starts at J's preschool, and I simply must be there to blow bubbles, and make pinecone birdfeeders, and paint rocks.   :)

As part of Ginny's yarn along, I have this meager offering this morning for you -  you better sit down...

THAT lovely specimen will be a horse tomorrow, ladies and gentlemen, though it doesn't look like much this morning.    Knit from a pattern in the book: 

a great resource book if you'd like to make your own toys for your children.  

M looked through the book last night, and then talked about making a wooden toy barn for the kids, so I set to work making the animals right away...  I'm sort of impulsive like that.

And here's a quick shot of my Shalom-in-progress.  Just knitting happily down the body now - ho-hum -
not much to see.  Maybe next week, now don't get your hopes up because I'm a flighty flighty gal, I'll have some SLEEVES for you to see.
Oh the excitement, it is simply too much!

and pssst, I may have a small tutorial up here tomorrow (unless I feel lazy tonight) if you want to poke your head back in here and make a summer headband with me.


  1. I love your sweet horse! I've seen that book before - looks like fun.

    I'm hopeful to see more of your Shalom next week - it's beautiful!

    P.S. Saw your win on SouleMama! Congrats!

  2. your shalom looks so good! i definitely love the color. ;) i've got plans to make my own for winter. can't wait to see your sleeves.

  3. That book looks neat and the horse is charming, can't wait to see it finished.

  4. love that book! and my word you are far in the cardi

  5. Your horse is very cute. :-)

    Shalom is coming along quite nicely, too!
