Pint Ice Cream Cozy's

 These cozy's, looking like babies hats, are on their way to my son's friends.  They are knit with Cascade Fixation and US sz 5 dpn's.  I knit them as tight as I could and the gauge is spot on with the pattern that suggested US sz 7 needles.
Reba thinking......Knitting...schmitting....

Shuttle tatting....

Testing my skills with a 1930's pattern, size 30 DMC Cebelia thread and my Aero Shuttle.  I wrote the pattern down so it would be easier for me to know where I was ring or chain at a time.
This could be placed on a collar or cuff or whatever you want!

Finished my eight 10"x17" napkins from my Handstitched Premium Class with Rachel at Stitched In Color.  I couldn't find 1/4" gingham that was 100% cotton but I found this (close to 1/8" squares) cotton fabric from Quilter's Junction, my local quilt store.  Here's to hoping I have the nerve to use them!
I've also been shutting tatting and using my Tatting Press.

Some grocery bags for Mom

This is with material close to raincoat material.  It's so tightly woven that a tiny crochet hook will not go through!  Perfect for grocery shopping.
One of the bags is insulated to make sure cold things come home cold since my mom lives 30 minutes from shopping.
Mom is over 75 and loves Harry Potter so I put her initial on the bag with that font using the lining fabric of the insulated bag.  Cool, huh?  I can't wait to hear how she likes it!
