April Fool's Day in Minecraft was blessed with hearts. Here you see it raining hearts on a couple of happy bunnies. In fact the effect I was getting was happiness and it was a really nice little surprise. Along with light the torches gave little hearts. You never died, you only gained more hearts. In the end of my little romp in this fun world I had four stacks of them. Creepers exploded into flowers...skeletons gave off bone meal like crazy and I was never able to be harmed or harm another living soul. Very beautiful actually.
This makes me happy. Little purple flowers waking up from their deep slumber are dotted all over my lawn. It must really be spring. *insert happy face*
My knitted flowers look almost as nice as the real thing. I've got 14 of them now...2 to go before I can join them into a bright and colorful garland. I can't wait!
So, funny story. I always have to make two of whatever I am designing. One goes to the shop so it can be shown off for the class and then one stays with me so that we can do a photo shoot and have a reference in hand for any questions that arise. Usually the shop gets the first incarnation of and then the second has all the kinks worked out after teaching the class.
I always knit with the class so I can be present in the pattern with them. So, Knitpicks was having a sock yarn sale and I thought, "Hey I will buy enough bright yarn to make another of these for the photo shoot that is really bright and cheery."
Here is my bright and cheery yarn! I love the colors! I love the sparkle yarn for the contrast in between. I can't wait to make this garland. BTW it is Knitpicks Stroll, in Brights and Glimmer.
But...when I got my hair cut I was talking about my flowers and the wonderful lady who cuts my hair...that has been cutting my hair for 16 or so years...loved my flower and wants a garland of her own in earth tones.
So...back to Knitpicks I went and got more sale yarn in earth tones and beautiful hues of a different sort. I am so blessed to have people interested in my designs; I am so thankful to be able to make beautiful things that make people smile.
She wants a Nana Cowl too, so I have to find a yarn that I really adore the drape of to take the place of the sugar yarn I loved so much. But...that is what MD S & W is for!
Happy Spring and Blessed Easter to those that are celebrating this weekend.
