Mystery project

Today I started work on a new project. Like the Mini Banana, it's a two-piece pattern. As of this evening I have one of those two parts done and I couldn't be happier with how it came out. Now I'll need to do a little brainstorming on how to make the second part and make sure it fits with the first. Sound mysterious? Well hopefully it won't take too long to complete and the mystery will be over soon.

In other news, Ron and I took a trip to some of the local flea markets late this morning. We both enjoy poking around and seeing what we might be able to find. Though today's trip didn't unearth any treasures, we still had a good day browsing and had some great pizza for lunch. Fun!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

This is just bananas...

Well, I had so much fun with the Mini Eggplant that I decided to attempt designing something else. But I was fairly stumped and unsure what to make next. And then it came to me and what I ended up with was this Mini Banana. I'm really happy with how it turned out and hope you give it a try. Just follow the link below for the pattern. By the way, if you do make one and you are on Ravelry, please post a pic of your project...I'd love to see it!

Mini Eggplant

Well, after a long period of inactivity in the blogging world, I'm back. Guess I can't stay away!

I've recently developed a sudden interest in developing my own patterns and would like to share them with other interest knitters. In fact, I have one to share with you today for a mini eggplant!

I hope that you give it a try. If you do, please let me know how you make out. Is the pattern easy to follow? Are the instructions clear? Are there any mistakes that I missed in typing it up? Please let me know your thoughts and comments, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
