Pictures Galore, A Day at the Art Academy

Pattern: Guinan, free pattern from YarnAbuse
Yarn: Fleece Artist Marina in shades of read and pink, purchased at Madrona Market last year

Sorry for the fuzzy picture. I'll blame my son for it, heh. This was a very fast fun knit, the perfect pattern for knitting at Family Day at the Art Academy yesterday. It's a very comfy hat.

The Aloha Knitters were out in force. It was a very pleasant day, very laid back and relaxing. And, they fed us lunch! I will definitely knit for food!!! May was there working on her Frankenbunnies. Kai brought some fun thick/thin handspun and finished a great beanie. Opal, Vron and Durable Dora were there spinning away. Patrice and Terry represented the hookers and worked on edging Terry's Barbara Walker afghan. Knittybird stopped by on her way to work.

Malabrigo white Totoro is very soft and cushy. He was the end of the ball and his ears are small. His twin went home with May, after being petted by the children at the Art Academy. Blue Debbie Bliss Donnegal Tweed Totoro will be in the shop soon.

The day started rainy and muggy but it's a beautiful twilight time.

Look at the details in that hat. Swirling around and around. Pretty cool.

You had a nice time it looks like from these photos! Great time.
