For my friend Tia for her birthday. Modeled beautifully as a shawl by Nicci of Close Knit Yarn Store on Alberta in Portland, OR.
It makes a fabulous "aroma filter" when the homeless guy decides to sit at the table next to mine at the wi-fi cafe. I probably look like I'm trying to avoid swine flu.
I don't want to reinvent the wheel... I just want a basic wonderful above the calf kilt hose pattern.
Picture taken at Knit/Purl knit night, just having finished the scarf before I arrived. 58 st on us9's. Rib6 cable with a 20 st repeat, one k1p1 rib selvedge and between cables...
Jared Flood, aka Brooklyn Tweed brought his attractive self and siblings to Yarn Garden in Portland for a book signing. I didn't want the book...(It's mostly women's stuff, and I don't need it).
Question directed to those who are really good with sewing machines and sergers.
Today, in honour of Veterans' Day, I stayed inside and worked on a design for one of those snazzy envelope hats that you see them wear in pictures.
I'm digging myself out of things that "need to be done". (Don't ask).
Ok, that might be an overly dramatic title.
Thank you to everyone who expressed concern. I'm doing fine...I miss my big guy, but I still have my mare, and she's enjoying all the excess affection and neediness.
