Blah.

I knit head covers on request.  I am done.  And it will be some time before I do more of these.   
They are super easy.  Cast on 36. Knit in the round until you get the length sleeve you desire.  Move to a larger needle and start carrying the fun fur along with the base color.

Beads anyone

I've never incorporated beads into my knitting.  I should say successfully incorporated.  I tried the dental floss threaders. But they didn't work for me inspire of some excellent online tutorials.  So I bought a nifty looking thing called beadaid from a website of the same name.  But I never used them. I loaned them out and friends used them with success.  So I deided to give it a try with some lovely yarn that was a souvenir of a fun day trip with friends.  And ya know what they work like a charm.  I will no longer be reluctant to attempt patterns that call for beads.  Or in this case, add them just because.

Finished a project.

Finally finished a project, as opposed to just the knit and frog that's been my life lately.

Two yarns.  Blue Herron and something called Silver.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  Both yarns have bits of sparkle and lovely drape.  It has been gifted to a knitting friend.  

And how fun are these shoes.  I had some of those "bucks" stores give you for spending so much AND they were half off. So I didn't have to work to hard to justify buying them.  Plus dh said they will be good to wear when we go to some upcoming concerts.
