Episode 7

Welcome to Episode 7 of the Sapphires-N-Purls podcast!  In addition to what I have been up to lately, below are links to everything I talk about in this episode.

I finally finished the dog sweater for my sister's friend!  I will be putting it in the mail this weekend.  I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.  I didn't use a pattern, I just kind of winged it, and sure hope it fits!

Shadow Knitting: 1st Mystery Knitting Project is done!

Ok, here is the picture of the completed item. This was my first real attempt at shadow knitting.  Much easier than I expected, but it does take some thought when charting out the pattern.  I've been using mine as a large coaster, but it really is meant to go on my counter whenever I have something from the oven that needs to cool down.  This will come in handy for Thanksgiving dinner this year because I always seem to run out of potholders/dishtowels to set my hot dishes on.  If you made this as well, I hope you had fun knitting and like the end result.  I will have a new mystery project around the middle of December, so be sure to check back!
Pattern for the Heart Shadow Hot Pad is below the picture.
