A few weeks ago I wrote a post about the Negative Nancy that lives in my head and I am happy to tell you that I've kept her at bay! In fact this post is all about what I've been able to do with her under lock and key. Last night my sister posted the above picture on my Facebook telling me she "LOVED" the headband. Instantly I thought, "I could make that." Since she just started her first year at college I thought I could surprise her with a mock-up of it in a care package. So I sat down, and after examining the picture for a few minutes, started knitting a pattern out of thin air. I like to say I was sight-knitting. ;) Don't ask for a pattern (yet!) because I didn't write anything down. The result is pretty true to form, and I think she'll be pleasantly surprised.
I also snapped a few pictures of the bracelets I've been hooked on making lately! I'm planning on adding a bunch to my Etsy shop in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled if you're interested. I'm sorry the last image is a tad fuzzy - it's the oddest thing, but my camera never seems able to correctly focus on anything when it's horizontal; all the vertical pictures it takes come out sharp as a tack! (evidenced by the picture below) Last is my latest work for my art class, that I'm pretty happy with - it's a flock of birds being chased away by flames. :)
So anyway, that's how life's been without ol' Nancy! Hope you're enjoying the end of your weekend. xx
