Macuwita sni begins - the Gold Brocade ends

Macuwita sni has begun & morphs into something a little different everyday!

Excitement is felt - knowing that those who need good, warm woolies will be receiving them. Frustration is felt too ... knowing that more knitters/crocheters are always needed. The more sweaters, hats, mittens & vests received for the children of the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation .... the better. Collecting the woolies is ongoing - it is totally 'at your own pace'. Please consider adding a "Macuwita sni" project to your knitting bag OR consider donating a completed woolie knit in honor of a friend or loved one this Winter Holiday season ... totally a JOY! JOY! situation.

I started a sweater yesterday out of Peace Fleece. I am really glad that I don't fit into a child sized 12 - I want to keep it! :) 3" into it - and I already love the little details that show as well as the "Glasnost Gold" color.

One item I can keep is the Gold Brocade Christmas Stocking I finished! (Well, it does still need the hanging 'loop' and it does still need to dry a wee bit.) But - off the blocking board it came for photographic purposes .....

I LOVE it! Hmmm ... I am truly loving the 'golden tones' this year!

AND ... one tiny shameless plug - Black Belt Babe is now ON SALE! Ah .... Life is good!
Remember .... Inspire Art! Create Art! Buy Art! Be ART!! Comments, please!

Love the Gold Brocade Christmas stocking! That one, I think, is the most elegant of the bunch. If I had someone to knit a stocking for, I would be tempted to order the kit. As it is, you've succeeded in making me want to pull out my Tongue River sock yarn and knit a toasty pair of fair isle sox!

The stocking is beautful!!! Be sure to add it to our little groups photos. I always need items to feature! I have done 2 fair isle bags now I need to move on to larger items!!
