Sunday evening

These are the 2 knitting projects I have going at the moment. The lace looking piece is called a ponchette out of hemp. Its coming out really good. I had originally bought the hemp for a market bag but just couldn't get the pattern, thus a ponchette. I actually went into the LYS and one of the girls had it on. The other pattern is for a cropped cardigan. Hard to see the yarn color but its a rust color. Having trouble getting a gauge so that in on hold until later. I also made some peach jam. The peaches that I got were huge. Of course, I had to sample the jam and now I can't wait for some toast and jam.
We just did some cleaning up today and basically taking it easy. I even got a nap today. Well off to watch the Olympics and do some more knitting.
Hope everyone has a great week.......

Thank you for stopping at my blog :o) The way I get my wool to stay for stitching is just that fusi stuff/wonder under. You trace the shape, iron it to the fabric and cut it out. Then peel off the paper and iron it to your background. WALA! All done except for the stitching. :o) It comes in a roll, and you can get it at Wal-Mart.
