Finally, after about a year, literally, got to the Bryant Street/Forever Young/Raveloe knitting club thing at the Bryant Street Studio. Saw Jill, whom I've not seen since the spring (my fault; I would prefer not to leave the house). Anyway, one of my bags sold! Noteworthy only because I think about selling things all the time, but that would require actually making items that were not for me, and well, that doesn't happen.

So, if you see this little number on the streets of Buffalo, say Hi!

It's Big. And Round.

Cat for scale*.

This is the 100% homespun shawl that is trying to be finished by mid-September to be entered in the Buffalo Weavers' Guild Show. Thing. Was not thrilled with how it was going--a big block of the pinky-green section, in a lace pattern (what lace pattern?)*, followed by feather and fan, but the feather and fan was off, and too off to look like a "design flaw"--more like just looking bad. So off the needles, but presenting a fine photo opportunity. Ripped back. Quite a bit. Not sure if any lace pattern will be incorporated at this point. And think it will have to be schlepped to SF if it wants to be finished on time.

*No, not for sale. Scale! Although, for a price ...

Another Bag in a Series



A Jaywalker, because everyone's doing it.

I really, really, really, want to just do socks, but I want to get these bags to Jill.

Oh wait. I know. Why I fail to blog. Because blogger is so moody. Sometimes it posts, sometimes it locks up, often things are all misalligned. It can't all be user error. Can it?

You know, I make the kitty bed for those animals, but oh no, got to sleep on the felted bags. With some good reading.

Chloe prefers the entrelac.

Oh, and some weaving, too.

Shawl is now off the loom, and half fringed. One of these days ...

Oh, how could I forget. Basketweaving! I always knew that English degree would work out for me:

And there's been a bit of knitting.

We have a Clapotis done for Have Ewe Any Wool, in Schaeffer:

We have a monster sock, the "Columbine Peak" pattern, from Socks Soar on Two Needles. 72 stitches on a size three makes for a big honking sock. Please note we only have one sock.

We have a lovely start to a cable for the Big Sak Sweater:

And finally, a bracelet. Still working on the clasp action.

And there's been spinning.

My first spin. It's since been plyed, and washed, and skeined, and now it sits over the fireplace awaiting its destiny.

Oh, there's been crafting.

Well, first, and probably most importantly, the Wheel arrived. Of course it arrived the day after I left for NY. Luckily I called Raveloe on Saturday, and the poor G-Man got dragged to the happy fiber store. Presenting:
