A little Mink

Have you ever knit with Mink?   It feels wonderful in your hands and the finished garment has a soft flowing drape.  Short version of Nebula by Vera Sanon.   I used Pure Elegance yarn from Great Yarns (shop)

Lake Louse 2015

Flash back to Lake Louise, Canada
At the end of my Vogue Knitting Cruise to Alaska, I met with friends and rode the Rocky Mountaineer to Banff.   The ride was incredible, beautiful valleys, majestic mountains and a river ran through it all.    Beyond a doubt the most inpactful location was Lake Louise..such a special feeling, the colors and icy water,  sounds of running water and wind flowing through the trees.   I definitely plan on returning to this lovely place.

I love to Sew (too!)

I teach sewing to kids (ages 9- up) during the summer @ Broadway Quilts in the town of Sonoma.   It's wonderful to see the excitement and pride that the kids show when they are learning, doing and finishing their bags.   It's especially rewarding when a student becomes so enchanted with their success and accomplishment.     These a pincushions that I made for the goody bag each receives the last day of class.
