Go, Go Gadget Market Bag

I bought this kit at my LYS. I've put off making a market bag, but have to say I really do like this project. The yarn is very stretchy and the bag is deceptively roomy.

Working For Free!

Oh boy, the Governor of Oregon just came out and said that teachers should work ten days for free to help out the State. I have a mental middle finger for our Governor. Please!

New Release - The Mermaid Shawl and Other Beauties

From Parlez-Moi Press / Valentine-Design.

Kathleen has released the pdf download version of her pattern book. In my opinion, from just a quick glance through it, it is well worth the money.

Details, they want details!

Thanks, guys, for all the kind words. I have to get an image of the sweater on here, soon, lest I be branded as a provocateur or prevaricator...or both!

deciding on next project

As I knit one project, I'm always thinking about the next 2 or 3 projects and I find that I get my ideas for next projects in different ways.

Koolhaas hat

I've been wanting to make this hat for a long, long time and I'm ready to start. The pattern says 16" for woman's size. Also says to fit a woman (man).

Feather and Fan scarf in Alpaca

Here it is! It's just basic feather and fan, super easy, but it looks so nice, and I just love working with alpaca!
