I'll Show You Mine/You Show Me Yours - M 7/1

My "phoenix sweater" is done. Just in time for the summer heat!


I started the yarn with a different pattern and the thing was coming out so large...I had finished the front, back and 3/4 of one sleeve when I decided to rip it out and start over again...thus the phoenix rising from the ashes of the old sweater. This was the first sweater I ever made.

Shirt and hat that I made, plus an apron that Lee's husband (from the cooking forum) made for me. This photo shows gifts that Lee gave to me in one of the cooking forum swaps.

In middle school I learned crocheting. Mom made me make a beige shall for my god mother. I hated the color. Can't say my skills have progressed much since then. But I did manage to make a bedspread before I gave up. I still get a warm feeling when I see daises.

Since knitting seems to be the theme, I crocheted this afghan 2 winters ago. It's so warm, I've never yet used it!! I guess I should have used a lighter yarn, I used a number 4 which I thought would be good for an afghan.

Hubby loved it when he saw me working on it, he loved the colours and pattern (as do I of course!) It's folded in half.

I didn't make it, this is the sofa table I referenced the other day. Son did this, as his first woodworking project.

Beautiful sweater, Annie, and beautiful work by the rest of you too.

Working with textiles isn't one of my skills, so today I am sharing this photo of traditional women's clothing that was on display in a museum in Acapulco, Mexico.

I wish I had such a skill. I did learn to crochet as a teenager and made a purple shawl in the shell pattern. Last year I thought I might try taking it up again but quickly realized that I don't have the patience needed, I did make a couple of nice squares that I use under some ceramic pieces I have. :)

A couple of years ago I bought some yarn from the alpaca lady that is a vendor at our farmers market. I loved that it came from her animal and it is the natural color of this particular alpaca. Then I sent it to my good friend who is a wonderful knitter and she made a neat hat for me!!

I love all the things you guys have made and the admire the skills you have.

Oh and I see that I am wearing earrings that my friend made for me as well!

My mom taught me how to knit when I was 10, then later learned how to crochet. I have made lots of baby blankets, sweaters, scarfs, and kids toys, mainly as gifts. Also learned how to embroider, quilt and braid rugs from my mom. Funny thing is I never took a picture of any of the projects I made. It never occurred to me to do so. I don't know why. I wish I had.

Socks: I still have that loom and a few similar larger ones!! Over the years I have done a lot with those tiny flowers.

My sister made me a queen size quilt using this pattern.

She told me each stitch was made with love.
