now what?

Hi everyone :)

As the title of this blog post says, after all the busy days of preparing for the craft fair and the previous CAL, I now experience a feeling of “now what?”. The CAL went smoothly, the craft fair was a hoot and a half, so what do I do now?

Well, there are a couple of options.

But first let me show you what *my* addition was to the mandala CAL! :)

Pretty cool huh? :) I love the colors I used for this mandala. I have to say again how much fun it was hosting the CAL! :) So I’m sure that there will be another one in the near future ;)

But in the meantime; what do I work on now?

For those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook (which you can do right here) it might be neat to take a look at something I’ve been working on before the craft fair. I call it the Nautilus:

I used my multicolor Stylecraft DK yarn for the center, and cheap acrylic yarn for the outer wedges. This pattern actually has you making a second ‘wing’, but because I ran out of time before the fair I decided to leave it as is and just put it on display in my booth. It got a lot of attention :) But now that it has come back home with me, I’m thinking I might finish it the proper way, both wings and all.

So that’s option 1! :)

I recently cleaned my craft room/office space, and I actually found some Noro! Can you believe it? I think they’re leftovers from my fat bottom bag.

Recently, Mad Mad me has released a cool pattern to make wristwarmers with, and with the cold weather that has been surrounding us lately, I’m thinking it’s a great way to use up those pretty scraps of Noro! :)

So that’s option 2…

And if that won’t keep me busy, I can always work on my groovy-ghan some more! :)

Here it is hanging over the back of my chair in the craft room. I just love this pattern! It’s so darn groovy :D

Well, it looks like I will be able to keep myself busy for at least the next few days… ;) What about you?

  4. will you post the ‘groovin afghan’ pattern ?

  5. The mandala looks great! I always have a couple of projects in knitting and crotcheting to keep me busy, i switch from one to another, just what i like at the moment. And i m also learning on my sewingmachine to make little bags, so i have to little time for all that i want to make! But i believe we all have that probleme sometimes.

  6. Love how that groovy afghan is coming along! I really enjoyed your CAL, but I never posted my final product. I did blog about my new mandala obsession, and there is a picture of my Mandala from the CAL there as well. Come see…

  7. Your mandala is very pretty – and I love the nautilus doily pattern – thanks for sharing the link to the pattern. :)
