This week I have finished yet another wearable accessory and this time it’s knit instead of crochet like last week. The Touchstone Shawl by Laura Aylor has been on my needles since early March but with many other projects, it was on the back burner only getting worked on a little at a time. I’m so happy it’s done so I can wear it now before any blazing hot temperatures make way to Oregon. The weather has truly been something as of lately.
I started this Afghan last January and finally took the time to sew it all together this year. Many breaks were had when making this as we had an extremely hot Summer (record-breaking!) last year and other projects became higher priorities.
This is was a WIP that I had started in December 2019 as a distraction from everything that was going on with the loss of our child. I put it down for a while because of everything that was going on in the world with the Virus and adjusting to a new norm.
This year I wanted to start a new tradition in making each of my kids a Christmas tree ornament. This year I decided to go with something silly and fun. I chose to make the Red Heart Jolly Pickle Ornament which can be found on the Yarnspiration website.
I used various scrap yarns in my stash ( mainly all Red Heart yarn). The eyes I used can be found on Amazon. If you are interested in making some of your own! For the pickle on the far right, I used these eyes & for the others, I used these. Any stuffing will do for the inside.
Do you make your own ornaments too?
