Renovations Complete, mostly...

The work we did for the data center reconfiguration is almost finished - and most of our services are back up and running. I expected it to be longer. It could have been, if more things broke in the moving process. It was a tough day and a half - and quick, considering how big the job was!

I was busy in a crafty way, as well.

Easter basket tag balls or squeeze toys

More 'low-calorie chocolate rabbits' knit up.

Rabbit squeeze-ball (SOLD)

Practice making little shoes!

I'll probably give these away, or pack them away for 'later.' There are a few things about the pattern that need to be perfected, including my technique. I had forgotten how hard it is to make good looking I-cord with fingering yarn!

I found the booties pattern in MagKnits, they are a version of 'Special Socks', the Cinderella version. I think they turned out a tiny bit small, 3 inches long, but not bad for trying out a new 'small things' pattern for the shop.

It was also something I could make with the needles and yarn I already had -- while I'm still searching around for where I want to buy a large circular needle from. Sadly, KnitPicks options only goes down to 4 in circular needles.. and the shawl is being knit on size three. So, a 47" size 3 circular needle sounds like my best bet.

UPDATE: Ordered a 47" size 3 Addi turbo needle from an online shop :o)

Knit or Knot has the Addy Turbos in that length. They are a bit expensive but they won't kink or break. They also have ones that are cheaper. Possibly by Pony.

The booties are great! I am doing alot of i-cord these days for my felted baskets and bowls. I am lucky it isn't in fingering weight!

I really like the pillow animals. Love your little tags too!

Hmm, and actually I bet you can use that long Addi to Magic Loop the shawl even before it gets that big...
