YARN PLAY!

I recently saw this Autumn wreath on the Premier yarn website.  It inspired me to try it myself.
I've been making lots of poms-I will be tying some in place
 and using hot glue to wedge others. 
 It's rather relaxing to sit and wind!
I have a set of four pom-pom makers which are so easy to use!  One trick is to use string instead of yarn to tie the centers-
it makes a big difference .
Also using a surgeons' knot allows you to make it draw tightly!  
And on the Sentro Knitting front--I am making this Polar Bear ; 
 he is still being constructed but here's a glimpse.
His head is open because I am waiting for a little rattle box to arrive to insert into the head.  Once it is in the middle of the polyfil, I will shut up the top and add little ears!  My inspiration for him is from Koala Knits and Knacks--she is a very good teacher;  you will be seeing more of her projects in the near future!

  3. That's a great wreath! How warm and cozy is that going to be? So welcoming. The bear is adorable. I never realized how much babies like knitted toys until I babysat one of the Grands. I never made any for my own kids but Daughter's 9 month old loves the ones she bought for him.

LOST AND FOUND

Here's a family picture-my brother, sister, parents and me!   I began the day yesterday with a sad cindy moment!  I dropped my ring down...
