It's been a while since my last blog. I had been working on setting up my shop at simonasdesigns.etsy.com; and finally I have 2 patterns up for sale. You can see them below.
As I said it’s been a busy week for me. I have started working on another Ski Hat for my eldest daughter, since I was short of the Bernat Glacier yarn for the Winter Earflaps Ski Hat as I mentioned in my last post. I had another great yarn I got in JoAnns “Sensations Angel Hair” - it is so soft and perfect for a girl’s hat. It is even easier to make than the Winter Earflaps Ski Hat pattern because it is worked only in St st. The pattern should be up for sale in the shop pretty soon, so check back.
I still do not have a name for this pattern, so if you have some good idea, please share it with me.
In these picture is my eldest daughter and you can see how goofy she acts when she poses for me. Do we ever have enough of goofy pictures of our kids?
Yesterday my family and I went to Mikulasska (St. Nikolas) Christmas party in McLean, VA. For those of you who do not know this tradition, it is a party for kids where Sv. Mikulas, Angle and Devil come to see the kids. The story behind is that the kids have to sing something, or say some poem to St Mikulas to get a treat. They are asked if they had been behaving the whole year, and if yes they can get the treat (some candy and fruit), and if they weren’t the Devil will put them into a sack and will take them away. You can only imagine that all the kids interestingly enough confess only to behaving well all year round!
Today I should have jumped onto making some Christmas cards (yes I make my own; even though I do not have time for it, but I like to do that for at least close friends and family) and send it out, so family and friends in Czech Republic would get them before the Holidays. But instead I was "playing" with my computer today putting a second pattern into my shop, so I guess I must do it tomorrow.
In the morning I volunteer at our school at Holiday Gift shop, so maybe I can do it afterwards.
And lastly here are the patterns available for sale:
(1) It is the Winter Earflaps Ski Hat:
And then it is the Reversible Hat and Scarf set I made for my husband. It is quite versatile depending on which colors you choose to use.
It's time to make the dinner, so I will check in soon.
