New Hot Pad/Pot Holder

Made in wool. I changed the pattern around a bit...looks cute!

Lynne's Slippers

These are much pinker than they show in the photos. Wish I had not used the blue for the second layer of the soles, but can't worry about it now. They are going to be big on Lynne, but the pink will most likely shrink some, so then they should fit better. Otherwise will make her some more!

New Tanks for Me

I am a bit disappointed in the Sweet Tea (rose) as when I changed
colors for the short rows the new yarn, although of the same dye lot,
is lighter. It looks like it has a stripe right across the bust
line. In person it does not show as brightly as it does in the
photo. I am wondering if I can dye this to look all the same
color....??? Anyone have any experience coloring Cotton-Ease?? I
made a size 45 but it is too large for me. Looks fine under a jacket
or sweater.

The Cameo is a size smaller, and still a tad larger than I'd like. I
love the yarn, and even though it is really shiny, it looks good with
a pair of jeans. Just the right color. It is a 42, so I think the
next one I make will be a size 40 and see if that fits. My problem is
that I have bulges where one should NOT have them, so it can't be too
tight.
