Bad Pictures ;-)

I've been working on a couple of projects but neglecting to take good pictures, so I'm going to go ahead and post the bad ones. ;-)

First up, the scarpbook pages I did last week at our monthly scrapbooking session:

That one is going to be my entry in the fair, for the rubber-stamped scrapbook page category. I'm sure I won't win as I don't do as many cool things with stamps as some people do, but it's good incentive to get scrapbook pages finished.

Here's my two-page spread of when we went to Bartlesville for a WONDERFUL outdoor concert. One of my Ravelry friends, who is in the Amici New York Orchestra, got us tickets. It was amazing!

I wish I could figure out how to make them bigger when you click on them. It used to be set up to do that but if I don't want duplicate pics in my picture storage, I can't make them embiggened when clicking. :-(


I'm almost done with my Trachtentuch A. I've now run out of yarn *twice* but luckily my Mom got 8 ounces of fiber and I still have two ounces left. I just need to ply it and give it a bath and I'll be ready to finish the bind off. You can see the needles still attached at the upper right of the shawl. I only have about 18" more to bind off, but I ran out of yarn!

This is the scarf I've got going, which is my first broomstick crochet project. I'm loving the yarn/stitch combination. It's going to have two identical ends, with a square (or something) in the middle.

In the comments for my last post Eva pointed out that I could work bottom up and not have to do any grafting. She's exactly right! I haven't really planned it out yet, much less tried it on the knitting machine, and that'll be the first step on that project.

That's all for now! I'm going to go attempt to ply the singles to finish my Trachtentuch. I probably won't manage to actually finish them until tomorrow, but you never know. :-)

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend!

Your Trachtentuch A is beautiful. Can't wait to see more pictures.

The pics seem to expand large enough for my 17" monitor when I click them.
