Snippets and Snaps

The Preemie Project is sponsoring a Craft-a-thon next month. Here are my entries for the Crafting for Preemies Contest.

Cotton Chenille Washcloth

Putting some of that new yarn to use already. Easy pattern, simple stitch, great yarn: a good combination for enjoyable, mindless knitting.

A few photos of the mule deer at Homestead Resort in Utah.

Real Close
About 5 feet away. He stepped around the corner of the building where I was hidden from view. Startled him and me!

  4. Such cute little hats!
    I've made a couple washcloths with that cotton chenille and they've held up very well.

  5. I love your deer pics. I am always so excited to see deer in the neighborhood when we visit my parents in Northern California. My mother, however, who for some reason doesn't appreciate them eating all of her flowers, does not appreciate them too much:)

  7. I am sure you will do well in the contest. I wish I had something to submit, but maybe next year. I love the deer pictures. It's nice that you got to be so close. They seem like such sweet but shy creatures.
