How Time Flies

I can't believe it's been over 3 years since I've been on this site. Or posted anything.

It's not that I haven't been knitting in that time. I've done several large pieces mostly, and mostly as gifts for other people. Inspiration sort of waxes and wanes, I guess. I have several pieces sort of languishing unfinished in the closet next to me as I sit at the computer right now.

"Hollywood" Knits Part Three

Well, third time's the charm on this one. I did two other versions before I was satisfied. Even then, I performed a little "cosmetic surgery" with the help of a few duplicate stitches to get details just right.

Still, I have a few reservations, but I'm not doing Kate one more time!!!

Let me know what you think.


"Hollywood" Knits Update

Well, after several delays -- and some plain old laziness -- I finally finished the Cary Grant pattern. Other than his cleft chin (Groucho had his mustache, glasses, and cigar; Bette Davis had her "eyes"), he doesn't have any physical characteristics that stand out. So I'm not sure how good a likeness this is. I mean it's kind of hard to capture his charm, elegance, sophistication and accent in knit, I guess.

Anyway, here he is.

Next up: Katharine Hepburn

Hello Again!

Thanks again, everyone!

I want to respond to some of you individually, but I've been a little "scattered" (scatterbrained) lately, so have put that off until the brain cells are functioning a bit more rationally.


I can't believe it's been almost 3 years since I posted anything on this site. And just re-read all the nice comments about my work. So a very belated "thank you" for all of your comments and compliments.
