Photos from this Weekend

So, Blogger won't let me post the edited version of my last post. Here are a few pictures of what I did this weekend:

The piece of hairpin lace.

A Starlight Beret for my cousin.

A Green and Blue Beret.

And one of Mom's Christmas socks.

Hairpin Lace & Other Happenings

So, I have learned the basics of hairpin lace for my project in Fibers class. I made what supposed to be a short scarf, but the process seems to cinch up a bit when you connect the strips. It is now a nifty little table runner.

(I'll edit this post to add a picture this weekend, but right now I'm in Foreign Language lab...bleah)

In other news, the socks I'm knitting for Mum's Christmas gift are almost finished. All I have to do is use Kitchener's stitch to close up the toe on the second sock. I wonder if it would be safe to post a picture of them on here without her seeing them. any of you guys know my mother, and would you promise not to show her the picture if I post it? (I'm assuming here that someone is reading this...which is probably a bad assumption.) I can't post a picture on facebook, because she might accidentally see it there. She doesn't have a blog though, so it should be fine as long as no on shows her. :)

Would anyone be interested if I post free patterns on here that I have written? I have a few written out, but I'm not sure how much interest there is out there for my stuff.

And now I can't think of anything else to say and I have 30 minutes left to waste in this 'lab'...

Until next time,
