We’ve had wonderful snow for snow people, and snow sculpture of all kinds. This peace dove was created by a fellow retired art teacher (and she gets the photo credit); she’s done some other creative snow sculptures, too. I’m finding knitting to be warmer, though!
Things well worn have been well loved.
Another completed project for myself – these mitts are from the same overdyed yarn (https://kayak2016blog.wordpress.com/2020/11/23/over-dyed-yarn/) I used for the cowl posted last month:
I have a basic fingerless mitts pattern concept. For these, I slightly modified the lace pattern (from the Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible), taking one motif and elongating it to fit the length of the mitts. I find it interesting how the color blocking changes with the difference in distance around the circumference.
Bader likes to knit. Without opposable thumbs, he tends to do it with his teeth; he has to chew the knitting needles to get them out of the way, though! My knitting was out of reach for the night; this morning he watched wistfully, hoping to participate. Maybe.
I guess this is what happens to you when you don’t wear your seatbelt, or use the headrest –
These are the same little flowers from a few posts ago – but taken in better light. I had no idea that they were this fuzzy! Again, they are only about 3/4 inch high, and a little over 1/4 inch across the flower.
This was the other project during the couple of days I spent in northern Vermont: my sister wanted a long rice sack to heat in the microwave, that would go halfway down her back and treat the aches around her shoulder blades. So I made the rice sack, with lots of tubes to contain the rice, and a collar to keep the back of the neck warm, and then a flannel cover for it. Below is the rice containment sack peeking out.
