Bursts of Creativity

The KnitPicks order finally came in on Friday. I got 10 skeins of Andean Silk in Chocolate to make the Hourglass sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Here's my progress so far:

Not much to look at right now.

A while back I saw these adorably stenciled t-shirts on this blog. I ran right out and got the supplies to make them, but haven't had the chance until last week. These are two I made for the kiddies:

A butterfly for the baby girl:

And a scary Halloween skull for the boy:

The skull was such a pain to do. I won't recommend painting light colors on dark shirts. I had to put on three coats of paint and when I peeled off the stencil part of the skull peeled away with it. I thought it looked kind of cool anyway so I kept it like that.

You can check out the tutorial on Craftster.

Sewing! I actually finished a bag and a half:

Half a bag:

And lastly, a gratuitous shot of the baby girl, just to prove that sometimes I do brush her hair:

She cleans up nice.
