Primstav: About the Symbols - First Half of Winter Side

Primstav Winter Side

October 21: The date our leaves begin to turn in Portland, and are at their peak in the mountains. I marked the day with an aspen tree even though on this side of the mountains, they are rare - too wet.

October 28: St. Simon's Day and the day the sleighs are removed from the sheds to make room for livestock in winter. The day is marked with a sleigh.

Primstav Has Been Completed!

My embroidered Primstav is completed and hanging - summer side up!

Thank you to all who have been so patient in waiting for me to complete this project.  I have no excuse except that I have become addicted to knitting. lol

Holy Toes and Soles

sock holes

Why is this happening?? I NEED INPUT PLEASE!!

These are hand knit socks made using pattern suggestions for needle size and yarn. Are hand knit socks known to have a short lifespan? Is that why people knit drawers full - so they don't wear them often? Are they meant to be worn for everyday or only for special occasions or when mostly sitting?

Or is there stuff I don't know yet? Mistakes I am making?

Broken Arm Means a Change in Projects

OOOOPS!

A change in crafty plans - no knitting or embroidery for awhile! Broken arm - but isn’t that neon pink cast totally cool?

So after a week of being quite cross about what I can’t do - which is most everything - I took my wise mother’s advice and tried to think of what I CAN do.

Early Spring Update and Requesting a Little Help!!Please!!!

Arne and Carlos Easter Bunny

Sorry to be such an absent blogger! We are going to talk about that in a bit, but first - wanna see what I have been up to the past month!!

Top of the list was to complete my Arne and Carlos Easter Bunny in time for Easter!! The pattern is from “Easter Knits: Eggs, Bunnies and Chicks” by Arne and Carlos. (Order on Amazon.)
