Vacation Week

Hi, the kids have finished the afghan and it is absolutely lovely. The greatest thing is that the ladies are sooooo proud of the work they have done. I love how well they worked together and the fact that they are ready for a new project- Not for themselves but for someone else. Project Linus perhaps.

Happy Valentine's Day

It's been a busy day. Bought 3 skeins of alpaca yarn and spent a good 2 hours rewinding one of the them. Any tricks I should know about? The yarn has absolutely the most delicious feeling in my hands. It will be a lace scarf, I have about 2 inches worked up and I just can't wait to finish it....but I still have my sweater to finish. Well I'm off to knit.

Pumpkin loves to hang out with me when I'm knitting. She is particularly fond of this knit afghan created in the late sixties. Posted by Hello

Knitting for others

My sixth graders have been working on an aghfan for one of our teachers who was injured in a car accident this fall. The kids have just learned how to knit or crochet and with the help of staff members who knit/crochet they have collected over 50 blocks. Here the kids are sewing the blocks together.

Zen Shawl Summer 2004 Posted by Hello

Getting Started

Today is the first day of my life as a blogger. I've been standing in the background looking at all the wonderful blogs that feature knitting and have discovered a wonderful world of thoughtful, sharing and talented people. I feel proud and honored to join you!!! This is my daughter modeling a shawl made last summer.

Presently I'm working on a beautiful sweater (Debble Bliss pattern) in a heather green. I have the back and part of the right side completed.
