Knit Cable Purse

1:47 PM Edit This 3 Comments »
Finally, after a really, REALLY long and worrisome week at work AND at home, I've finally finished the Plait Cable Purse that I had started back in December. I haven't done any knitting or crocheting in about a week. And that is UNHEARD of for me! YIKES! Because upon waking at 6 am Thursday morning I received a phone call from my Dad saying he needed to go to the Hospital. I ended up taking him to the ER Thursday morning and they promptly registered him into the hospital to stay where he will be until hopefully only Monday. He has an intestinal blockage from the Arterial Bypass surgery he had back in November. I've been scared out of my wits. And needless to say, no crafting of any kind has been done of late. Plus on top of it all, I've been having horrible migrain-like headaches all week due to Sinus problems. UGH! After working all day I've just came home and crashed on the couch, barely able to read my emails and blogs because I feel as if my head is about to lift up from my shoulders and promptly explode!!! Anywho, on with the pics! I hope everyone else has been having a better, healthier week than i've been having!

A Whale of a good time, A Ferret Jingle Toy

This is such a fantastic, quick and easy toy!! I’m putting these on my charity list to donate to my local animal shelter and to various ferret shelters in need of extra toys. Instead of using catnip I used a little tuft of polyfil and then inserted a little jingle bell and then another little tuft of polyfil. It makes a fantastic jingle toy!! My boys will love it!

So why not make up a batch of these to donate to your local animal shelter? The animals will thank you!

Needle: Size 8 Straights
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver in Bright Yellow
Notions: Small amount of Polyfil and a Jingle Bell
Craft Time: Around 30 minutes
Pattern: Whale Toy

Happy New Year!
