Cable Sweater

Attaching Images to Posts

Howdy MWKers!

Two methods of adding inline images are no longer working dependably and causing much grief. I've disabled those methods, but never fear, you can still attach images to your posts.

Fine Art Knitting

I knit both for the craft and the art of it. Most of my projects are practical, beautiful gifts for friends. But I also use knitting as part of my fine art practice.

Weaned, At Last! Maybe I've Grown Up!

Day Thirteen of Absolutely Free of Any Nicotine, Cigarettes, See-gars or other foreign objects in my mouth. No, wise-ass, I'm still smoking those, but I don't inhale.

You Can't be First, But You Can Be Next!

With all this heat, I was gently reminded of the things to come, autumnal change and the colder times ahead. My fixation with linen moving smartly along, I now must prepare for the winter.

Aerilon Farmer's Cap

This is another Tapestry Crochet Hat, but the last 10 or so rows are made in Fair Isle aka Color Stranding. This is a different type of crochet for those of you that don't know crochet.
