For the 5th birthday of one of our favorite young fairy-loving friends, David, Son, and I made a fairy bed!
Abe used his new tools to make a bed of his own design. (See his blog for more details.) After sawing the parts and nailing them together, he painted it a deep green. David sewed together a felt mattress. Abe made a pillow sham out of the same felt, outlined with mattress stitch. I made the coverlet.
Using incredibly tiny needles and miniscule and unforgiving crochet floss, I tried out a lace pattern from Barbara Walker's A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns.
Today's ridiculous knitting was sponsored by a Pomegranate Cosmopolitan.
1 ounce Pomegranate juice
1 ounce Triple Sec
2 ounces Vodka
1/2 ounce lime juice
Shake with ice until very cold. This recipe makes a bit more than I can drink and still knit lace fairy bed coverlets....
