Thank you to all of you who left such nice comments on my last post. And thank you for understanding that I needed to take a break from blogging. Now I'm back, rested and ready to blog. Over the break a lot of ideas have been percolating in my mind and hopefully that will transfer into some good craft tutorials. Until then, here's a little bit of what I was up to when I was gone.
I finally got a chance to check out the new UNIQLO store in SF (pictured above). Don't you just love those rainbow stairs? The store is awesome and a little overwhelming. There's a lot to look at there. FYI, they don't carry the kids line.
I tried to teach my daughter to knit. She was able to cast on pretty easily. She even understood the process but her little hands could not hold the needles well while she knit. If anyone has any recommendations for teaching a child to knit, please share!
My daughter and I finally made one of the sewing projects she got for her birthday. It was a bug pencil topper. She has decided sewing is much easier than knitting.
I knit a hat! It's been unusually cold where we live and I was able to use some of my yarn stash to knit a cozy wool hat. It's loosely based off of this pattern.
I was able to be more spontaneous. Instead of planning play dates at the park, we just went there if we wanted to after school. There was no scheduling going on.
I organized my desk. Somehow my sketchbook disappeared and was replaced by a sea of sticky notes with cryptic writing and pictures. I transfered all of it to a sketchbook and now have it at my desk again.
What have you been up to the past couple weeks?
