Does it ever feel like you're so busy that you can't get anything done? Between work, home, garden and life, that's the way it feels to me. Then, I sit down to compile my pictures to blog. That's when I realize I'm getting lots done!
|These napkins were made as practice samples for using my Julia loom and playing with pattern and color.|
|A certain young lady has been asking, "Mama Karen, when are you going to make me some socks?" for more years than I care to mention. Knitted toe up, from either end of the ball of yarn, makes the colors seem different.|
|Here's another pair of warm tootsies.|
|My daughter's been fascinated by dinosaurs since she was little. Now, she has some Dragon Scale Mitts to keep her warm while playing "let's pretend".|
|On a short visit to Phoenix, we went to see an exhibit at the Zelma Basha Salmeri Gallery in Chandler. The Museum displays Contemporary Western American and American Indian art.|
|I like the way the baskets are displayed...and wish someone would teach me how to weave like this!|
|So instead, thanks to the video I mentioned back in November, I decided to give weaving my handspun another try. I used it to warp Julia for this scarf. The weft is tencel. I'm happy with the way it turned out.|
|This shawl, knit with my handspun, Redfish silk and camel, just needs to be blocked before I call it done. The pattern's from Sock-Yarn Shawls by Lucas.|
|The kitty, hood pattern I followed has ties that are a cat's paw and a tail.|
|Thanks, Mama Karen.|
No, Thank You, Ladies!
