Squatty

Today I post my Amanda Squatty Sidekick photos. I used Cascade 220, in a wonderful purply heather. The purse felted in 5 minutes in the washer. One hank with leftovers, hardly any finishing — you gotta love it!

At the owner’s request, I made one for the LYS — www.marinfiberarts.com — with a much nicer button from the store.

A Yarn Fast for a Good Cause

Well, I was so busy on my mission trip to build a couple of houses in Mexico that hardly any knitting happened — I started the toe of one sock, but then I got busy the rest of the week, or was so beat that yep, the trip turned into a complete yarn fast.

But see what was accomplished — we helped build houses, one for this family — Luis, Yajida, and Janeen:

and the baby’s feet were stamped into the new concrete entry to their new small, but now more than twice as big house!

I think the Yarn Goddess will understand!

Tomato Sweater

I have a new finished object:

– the Tomato Sweater from No Sheep for You — I made this out of Cotton Fleece yarn, and hoped that it would work — it did! I think the 20 percent wool actually gives it a nice drape, and I’m sure that Amy would approve. I had my cousin Marie (who I was making it for) try it on yesterday before I wove the end in — a perfect fit.

Now I want one for me!

The Knitourage

Today is World Wide Knitting in Public Day.

And in my county, it is also the day of almost a fair in every part — the LYS was just 1/2 block from the Italian Street Painting Festival, which is a wonderful place to see artists doing it for the love of it, great music, decent food, and funding for youth in arts.

So, what better than having a wwkip fest in the middle of it.

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve starting calling our Knit Night group the Knitourage — kinda like a knitting Entourage. So, I made up some stickers like this:

We were lucky, we had knitters from the north (Sebastopol and Santa Rosa) as well as folks from the Marin Knitting Guild. It ws a very good thing. Look at the fabulous lace scarf being knit in the chaos, and then there was a big knitting emergency Gabby finished her hat while there and had no other knitting, but Warren came to the rescue with a swatch for her to work on!






and I have finished the Tomato sweater from No Sheep for You that is destined for my cousin Marie for her birthday on June 19th. Photos coming – I want to make sure it fits, so she gets to try it on tomorrow…

This is my first blog, and my first blog entry. Late to the game and dollar behind to boot, but what the heck. My publishing desires can be fulfilled, and I have a place to post my knitted objects.

All is well. Because I blog, I am!
