One, two, three
Three more bracelet's, music notes, etc. and paper dolls. I'm so sorry that I haven't been able to create any fancy border riddles but I've been so busy with multiple projects (mostly art and animation work) that time is running thin. Wish I didn't have to sleep, I could get so much done with 8 extra hours in the day! But what days they have been, it's been comfortable (60) and sunny for three days in a row here in Seattle. Have a lovely day friends.

Every Oyster has it's purl
I can purl! No real riddle as to what the border is made from, although can you figure out how I made it? What you are looking at is my very own knit 6 rows, purl 1, knit 1, etc. up to five more rows. It's interesting how the mind wants to revert those purls into knits, simply because it is what I am used to. Comfort in patterns are created with time, so it will come. I had a great class tonight!
This is a photo from last Tuesday. It was the first night of my knitting class and I'm sporting all my yarn and needles in Nicos handmade bag. I know how to knit, but only one thing, the knit stitch. I had taught myself so that I could knit everyone hats and scarves one Christmas (can you believe I made 17 of them), but to be able to do more than that I need to know how to purl, fix missed loops and things like that. I had taught myself from a book and as a 3D animator I understand how important it can be to see something in real space, like an actual person pulling yarn over a needle rather than interpreting a drawing in a book. I was surprised at how many people were in the class, in fact the teacher had to surrender her chair. I've got another class tonight.
