mosaic skateboard

I had a sandwich in a cafe on Valencia, and saw these on the wall. How great. I love art made out of the 'ordinary'.

An eleven year old

I went to Minneapolis for a family gathering. I knit away on the white Throw - and added many inches of progress. But rather than show that - I'll give you a giggle. My nephew showed me "photo booth" in the MacBook. And then, he showed me "Effects". We nearly hurt ourselves laughing. Very healthy!! It was a glorious summer weekend.

This throw is a present, long over due, for a friend's wedding. It has been rewarding to work on something stitch-by-stitch thinking of them, and wishing them "continued" best wishes in their marriage.

This is shown in some of the most striking colors ever created, so it was brave to do it in white. Surprisingly, the changes in yarn are so incredible that I am enjoying the knitting more than I thought I would.

There is a pretty serious error in it. But you can't tell, so I won't dwell on it. I'll just carry on.

Crafty weekend

Super Crafty Weekend. I had a lot of time to devote to the projects. Heaven.
I started knitting with the Rabbit Ridge Yarn. And it is beautiful.

I have some beautiful felted sweaters to work with, and I have been doing some trials. Here is a pair of mittens I am working on.
