i have so much to show, so i’m going to get right to it.
on the needles:
i went to Friday night knitting for an hour or so and worked on these. it’s wise hilda’s basic ribbed sock. super easy and fast pattern. i should have the first sock done by tonight.
the project bag above, was made by vegancraftastic. she also makes bigger bags and small zipper pouches out of really cute fabrics.
off the needles:
i am blocking this and will post another picture tomorrow when it’s dry and the very cute buttons are sewn on. the mossy jacket:
off the bobbins:
i have a second skein on a bobbin. a two- ply, new zealand romney:
the results of my handcarding experiment:
ms. mary. she has four flowers that are now fully bloomed. she is so tall and top heavy (totally opposite of my grandmothers physique) that i had to tie her to our standing lamp to keep her upright.
and ashley’s mr. richard:
buku did some transplanting of starts to bigger pots this weekend. we are just waiting for it to warm up and get sunny again. this weekend was horrible weatherwise. yesterday we played 18 holes of disc golf out at kincaid and it was chilly and windy. we want march weather back!
today we decided on an inside activity (its windier and gloomier than yesterday) and went to the anchorage museum to catch the Star Wars Exhibit with steve and jenn (check out their blog about their new and very cute australian cattle puppy, pongo).
the exhibit was really cool – i liked all the models and costumes – especially the full size wookies. there is a millennium falcon virtual experience that we didn’t make it to – the wait was 90 minutes! but we were able to get a pass to come back later in the week.
oh, and i discovered google reader. if you like to read blogs and like to stay caught up, check it out. it’s my new favorite thing on the internet.
last night i dyed some of my fiber that i got from my bff for xmas – with kool-aid! it will be kind of a long post so i thought i would break it up from this one. so, check out my next post for some colorful and fun fiber.
