Puffed Daisy Hexagon Season's Greetings! I'm sorry that it has been a while since my last post, but I've had some technical gremlins here that have kept me off-line! It's been wet, wet, wet here for so long that I've forgotten the last completely dry day we've had – mainly miserable rain, but mixed with some snow for the last few days. Not pleasant to be out in, but the perfect excuse to stay by the fire and crochet! I'm still bobbling along, but the rounds seem to take an age to complete now, so I can only manage one or two rounds at a time... Of course, my itchy fingers have needed something smaller and quicker to create between marathon rounds so some experimenting was in order.

Anyway, I'm obsessed with these at the moment, so enough typing, I'm getting back to bobbling. xx
knitted elephants Aren't these illustrations just wonderful? They can be found in the book 'Ameliaranne at the Circus'. The first Ameliaranne story was published way back in 1920 in the days when families like hers were very often large and very often poor. 1). This little elephant pattern is easy to knit. You could make each elephant a different colour if you wish or, if you're not a knitter, then why not try using the graph for cross stitch. Free knitting stitch library plaid Tree Chart (edit) I have made myself a knitting symbol font, and it is fixed width, and it allows for increases in the middle of cable crossings, and it makes "knit" and "purl" look very very different. And so I have charted out the branches of my tree using my font. (The previous version used the Aire River Design font.) (There are some minor differences between the tree in the picture and this chart. The key to these charts is here. This tree is worked as a rectangular panel. This is an alternative version of the last few rows, that you can use if you're also putting your tree on a Rogue. It's in three pieces because, frankly, it looks like a mess if it isn't. Note that these are half-charts. Edit: Oh, right! This is where I have the biggest modifications from what I did before. More edit: Minor errors have been corrected in the "roots" section and in the third (bottom) tree section. The trunk is just a three-stitch knit rib all the way up. Edit: I am a very tight knitter.
February 2011 Well, now that I've depressed us all with that photo of the inside of our torn-apart hot water heater shed, I'm happy to report that all is back in order today--neat, tidy, and shipshape--and looking like nothing ever happened. It's too dark out still for me to get a photo of the little shed, all restored and looking much better, but it is so. We have water, blessed running water. We have it in hot, and we have it in cold. We don't have any yet to the back bathroom (this house has multiple additions, built on over time, and that back bathroom is pretty darned far from where I sit in the original front room of the oldest part of the adobe), but that will come once the plumber and his good men have made sure all their customers have running water of one sort or another. In the meantime, I've been reading a book about people who lived in far more ancient adobe structures in this part of the world with no running water at all.

Urban Knitting Barcelona El movimiento "Urban Knitting" es una manera más de hacer arte, de crear, de dejar salir la creatividad que recorre nuestras venas. Es “Street art” o “Urban art” consistente en decorar mobiliario urbano con coloridas piezas tejidas a ganchillo o punto, humanizando nuestro monótono y frío alrededor, demostrando que tejer ya no solo es cosa de abuelas, que es algo actual y una de las mejores terapias anti-estrés. Tejer ha dejado de ser una labor que se realiza en un ámbito casero y familiar para convertirse es una actividad colectiva, divertida y sobre todo creativa y moderna. Surgió en 2005, en Houston, cuando Knitta decidió tejer el tirador de la puerta de su tienda de lanas con colores rosas y lilas.
