Very little crafting is going on here. My most recent impulse buy is a fax machine. How wrong is that?



I am enjoying Ariann in the green Karaoke. It is going slowly. I like that the fronts and backs are knit together. The shaping goes along the side seam. I really like the slight variation in the yarn color.

Here are a couple blues. On the left real NZ merino from the blogless one. Thank you! In the middle is Cascade Key Largo. Opal wants to swap these 8 skeins for the almost 4 oz ball of Zephyr on the right. Hmmmm. Seeing how lace and me just can't get along, it is probably the right thing to do. A part of me still wants that Stevie Nicks black shawl. Decisions, decisions.


Bouquets are popping up all over. My modest Koigu stash includes the newest gift from my Wisconsin sisterup front. I love all of them. Thank you!
I've been trying to figure out how to wrap beach glass. Here a few test ones. It's challenging for me.

I'll be out of town for a week on business. I'm just so happy to be away from the office!!!! Have a wonderful week everyone!

The wrapping of the beach glass looks absolutely awesome - you're so creative and inspiring! Ariann is also coming along beautifully - what a gorgeous yarn you're using for it! And all these other goodies - yummy, I love these blues especially!

That looks so pretty! I tried wrapping some natural stone before, but it was a miserable failure. I think I need to take a class to learn how to do that. Your creations look so beautiful and unique.

Nice sweater, too, by the way. I love the design. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Ariann looks beautiful. If you don't want to swap for the Zephyr, I'm sure we can come to some other arrangement. That yarn belongs to you!

I like the way you're wrapping the beach glass. Very pretty.

aloha acornbud,
i dig your beachglass creations. wrapped up like little translucent packages. is the metal hammered like the nz earrings?
have fun while you're off-island. surely there must be some downtime in your schedule for yarn shopping! in case you're wondering, our knitclub visitor's hat was completed and modelled for a photo shoot before she took off for the airport. thanks to you and all for being such a welcoming bunch. she really enjoyed hanging out w/the group.
have fun, miche

Wow, that beach glass is beautiful! I like Ariann...it's in my own "to be knitted" pipeline, as well. It'll be fun to see how yours comes out. Long time no see...

I like the wrapped glass a lot - I have no talents in that realm. Ariann is looking good.
