I made this small quilt, 18 in X 24 in, to enter into the Sacred Threads "Backyard Escape" healing quilt exhibit. I hope it will be chosen to travel with the exhibit.  The quilt is machine appliqued and quilted.

Fidget Sleeves

I have a friend who is an administrator at an adult day care for individuals with dementia in Tennessee. She has been hinting at me knitting fidget sleeves (tagging me on Facebook on articles about them) so I finally did using left over yarns.  The first one I did using the Fidget Sleeve pattern by bonnie bunny (free pattern found on Ravelry).  
 The second one I did using the pattern Evie (fingerless gloves) by Yarnthology.  I used the pattern for the textures, making the length of the "sleeve" longer than the glove cuff.  The beads where prestrung and the I tied on a extra bobble (green bead with gold piece).
This one was made using the wave and medium fish from the Shiver of Sharks Socks pattern by Laura Cunitz.  Again the beads were prestrung.  I then tied on some fringe yarn pieces as "seaweed." 

 This one was a simple cuff (k2, p2) which then changed to k3, p1 for the body.
I have mailed them to her and asked for feedback on any changes that would make them better.

Elementary Watson Socks

I knit these socks using the pattern Elementary Watson Socks by Sherry Mento.  The yarn is Schachenmayr Regia Pairfect in colorway #06819.  I like how they turned out. I gave them to my husband.
