French trellis scarf

Captain's Log, Stardate 12.19.2008

Just to warn you, I might have several knitting blog posts this month since I’m finishing gifts.

I just completed a beautiful scarf from Victorian Lace Today in a taupe heather color wool laceweight yarn.

I’m very proud of this scarf because it’s the first time I knitted with beads. I used these “crystal honey” color beads that I added to the florettes on the two end borders and in lines along the sides of the scarf.

(If you’re on Ravelry, more info on the yarn, needles, etc. is here.)

This is what it looked like while I was still knitting it.



And this is the finished product.

  9. CRYSTAL honey beads are very special, no doubt! This is absolutely stunning, Camy. Whoever gets this is so blessed!

    Can't wait to see other things, too. You are making me want to do creative things like this (NOT knitting--tried that once.)

    How do you put your Twitter posts on your blog??? I can't even figure that out.

  11. Sarah, don't say that! Anything handmade is super special. I am trying to give as many homemade gifts as I can this year. I got the idea from other people who are doing it too, buying stuff from Etsy.com rather
    than Macy's.

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 5

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Marisol Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
