Quick Knit

This was made with out any needles. I don't know if you can tell but it is a gradient yarn of red to grey to black. I'm going to wear it to my last knitting class, even though it wasn't my homework (I'm still working on that). My last class is on Tuesday.

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!

Knitting class

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.

Monkey see, monkey do

My recent craft project: stuffed felt pincushion with monkey on top! My apologies for not having a riddle this image. I only had time to take a quick shot since I have been spending the last few days setting up various components for an animation project. Anyway, hope you like it!
