Geometric Faroese Shawl Knit-Along

This is another shawl knit-along I am working on with a Yahoo group which is moderated by

Holiday Mystery Shawl Knit-Along

I am participating in a shawl knit- along on Holiday Mystery Gifts Knit Along Yahoo group. Instead of a shawl I decided to to a tablecloth in bedspread cotton no. 10 in ecru on 3.00mm needles. This is clues one and 2 finished. The designer posts several pattern choices with each clue and I chose to start with Birds Eye, then knit Inverted Aran Wheatears and finished up clue 2 with Fircone. I have started clue three knitting Candlelight pattern. This will take me a few days and I will have another photo then.

Created Byhand Challenge Jan 13

The theme for this weeks challenge is to use the word love somewhere in a project. I created a piece with gel paints then cut it into three quarter inch squares to make the L. I placed these on a black cardstock rubber stamped with a woven background stamp in white pigment ink. The letters "o, v, e" are alphabet stamps embossed with detail copper embossing powder. This is a 4X4.5 fat book page format. You can see more entries here at the Created Byhand Challenge
I think it's about time for some blog candy, so I will draw from names of anyone who leaves a comment on this post and also says they collect fat book pages and would like this one. The draw will take place on Jan. 31, 2009 so check back then.

Edit: I will do the draw sometime on Sunday, so anyone who wants to get a last minute entry in the draw has until Sun. morning.
