My First

Here is my first attempt at the Crayom Box Jacket. I choose to do it all out of hand spun. Well I modified the pattern to start and then realized that it wasn't going to fit me. I can never seem to stick to a pattern. When it was ready to sew up the seems I had to cut the back out and pick up and knit a new one. I knit one large mitered square for the back instead of the original little squares. This was not only my first Crayon Box Jacket but also my first time to cut a knitted item. I will have to admit it was very scary to me. I went to the ewe count and had the owner Penny Franz help me. It was all I could do to make the first cut. It turned out well I think and I needle felted the seems to make sure my hand spun didn't come apart. I entered it in the county fair and won Best of Show. Made me feel better that some one else liked it as well. I think I will follow the pattern next time ;)

Hello All

Just got a little e-mail from my spoilee and she is enjoying a lazy week end working on her spoilee also. Seems like a great week end to do that, the weather here in Wyoming is dreary. I haven't heard from my spoiler but I will bet she is having a nice week end also. Hope every one is enjoying family and friends.
