Creative chaos

This isn't a mess....
It's a work space.... honest.

Today was spent at Mom's (pretty usual for a Saturday) but instead of playing with yarn, we were playing with beads. Mom's been collecting beads for a few months, and I've got a lot leftover from my jewellery making days. So today we set out to make some stitch markers with them...
It was a lot of fun and we spent all afternoon doing it. I haven't knit a stitch today! (and the scarf isn't done! Weaving is tedious!)

I did get a chance to help Mom with the layout of her latest pattern
It's modeled by my cousin's little guy, Logan... isn't he just the cutest little heartbreaker?

The cardigan is knit in Fat Cat (colour is Bay Leaf - I stole the leftover to make a hat!) and you can get the pattern here.

Oh, and before I forget, I snapped a pic of the yarn I dyed last Saturday... 
These will be coming to the shop soon!

I love those stitch markers. They look like they won't get stuck in the yarn. Nice and pretty.

And YARN. I love the yellow and the blue stuff in the front.

I will be knitting up one of those little jackets. I think MAYBE Gavin needs one for his 1st birthday.

Very cool markers.

It's so neat that you and your Mom can enjoy working together.

That pattern is adorable. Now if I could only get my grandson to stop growing so fast so I could knit him something before it's to small.
