My sister has a small store in one of the tourist towns in our area

 She has allowed me to put my knits into it to see if they will sell.
 These are a couple of pair of socks and a hat I quickly made last week so I would have more little things
to offer.  The hat is 100% wool.  The socks are a wool/nylon blend.  Each set is $10.00

A month!  Partly because I did not like the pattern once I started it.  Had to work  out some kinks.  It is not an  American printed pattern so there were some terms that were not familiar.  I also reworked the bodice. It was suppose to be worked in garter stitch and I really do not like large amounts of garter stitch.  It is fine for definition.  I used it along the armbands and to separate the skirt from the bodice.

Close up of the stitch detail on the skirt.
Knit with Dale of Norway Baby Ull 100% washable wool.
Infant size.  Up to 12 months I would estimate.

For some reason, the colors did not come out as vibrant as they really are.
The shrug is a very bright orange.

100% Washable Wool

The accidental skirt.  Started out as a dress but ran out of yarn so had to tear it back and add a waistband

I will probably make a hat to go with the skirt.

This one is not for Tanzania,

It is for my niece's first baby, who is due in a few weeks.
I like to give gifts that are a little larger since they always seem to receive so many cute tiny outfits. This should fit Baby Olive by late summer and early fall.
Making this dress has convinced me that I do need a new sewing machine.  I have always enjoyed sewing, but it seems lately that I fight with my machine more than I am able to sew successfully.  Especially in the button hole department.  This dress does not have button holes yet.  I tried to make them, but I pulled out three because they did not please me.  I cannot see putting all of the work into something and have it ruined by poor quality buttonholes. 
The sweater is made of one of my favorite yarns.  Cascade 220.  It is hand washable 100% wool.
The dress is dark pink background with light pink polka dots with lime green polka dots inside the light pink dots.  It is the same fabric I used to make the little pants below.  I am hoping Baby Olive gets lots of use from them.

This Week

I honestly had a very difficult time getting into my knitting.  I spent days questioning what God expected me to do with our Ministry after I learned on Tuesday morning that our beloved friend Mwenebolongo had entered into God's Holy presence.  Tuesday was spent crying and trying to find the money we needed to transport his body from the city he was in, to the refugee camp to continue his trip back to Congo for burial.  When you ask in faith, God is ever faithful and He provided exactly the amount we asked for.  I picked up the money on Wednesday and wired it to Tanzania.  I have not heard anything about it yet.  I prayed as I sent it that the Pastor who would  be picking up the funds would remain safe and use it wisely.
God did answer my question concerning the Ministry.  His answer was that when he gave me this assignment, he was fully aware that he would be taking Mwene home before we were able to finish.  My job is to continue with the job he gave me and once I reach the dollar amount he gave me, he will tell me what he wants me to do with it.  So............I started knitting again.
100% Wool skirt and shorties.

I did not knit this skirt this week, I just managed to finish it.

This sweater was knit for a dear friend for her first great grandchild.
It is made from 100% wool, my favorite knitting medium.

One of these hats is sold.  The others are available.  I am not sure which one the customer will choose, she just wanted one made in our school colors.
This customer is allergic to wool, so these hats are acrylic.  Great for kids.
$15.00 each.

I call these socks Candy Corn
Acrylic $10.00 a pair.
