Here's a little taste of mine and Natalie's little bayside photo shoot a couple of weeks ago. She's wearing (L to R) Marr Haven Sport, Butternut Woolens Homegrown, Noro Kochoran, and Cascade Lana Bambu.
I sign off with Nat the wood elf wearing the lovely lavender Marr Haven hat. Headed to the Grey Havens, Nat? Have a nice trip!

Go and visit Shelly. You won't be able to resist. And if enough of us buy her yarn she will be able to build another bunny building for some bunnies and make more of this lovely yarn. I won't even try to describe it. Just ask me next time you see me, because I'll probably have these mitts with me showing them off. See ya then!

After class Sunday Fred and I went downtown for lunch at Boundary Bay (yum!) and then for a drive down Chuckanut Drive. Here's Fred enjoying the scenery.
And here's Margie signing us off (don't ask me how this picture got taken, but it perfectly illustrates the mood Saturday afternoon). It looks like she's saying, "Come on up to Bellingham and hang out and knit with us--it's sure to be a blast!"
Thanks to everyone at Apple Yarns for a really good knittin' time!

And to prove it, here she is showing it off for me. Sandy knit this Big Easy Blanket in Dream in Color Classy in Nightwatch or Midnight Derby (let me know if you know, because Sandy didn't have her yarn label with her). Thanks so much to her for sharing her beautiful work. This was made as a wedding present, by the way. Lucky bride & groom!
I have a couple of FO's of my own to report. Here's a new Raibeart made with Cascade 220 Superwash in the heathery green color #867. I had some help from youngest offspring--Natalie worked the section from the garter edging to just before the underarm gusset. I did some major tweaking of the pattern as I finished it up (as usual.) This one will eventually be a present as well. It's a secret!

Not satisfied with having such a cool knitting tool, the folks at Denise decided to go another step by adding crochet. This summer, Denise introduced the Interchangeable Crochet Hooks. Love it! What a great motivation to learn Tunisian crochet. I've been crocheting for about 40 years, so I think it's finally time. I've been experimenting with that this very morning, and next post, I'll show you how it came out.
