My Latest Knits

Brea Bag for my mom:

pattern: Brea Bag
yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, Cranberry
needles: US 9

This a bag I promised to make for my mom last year. It's fully lined with repurposed denim. I can't wait to finally give it to her this weekend!




Fern Lace Scarf
yarn: Spinning Bunny Merino/Tencel Hand Dyed Yarn, Blueberry Patch
needles: US 10, bamboo

I've made about a million scarves since I learned how to knit, but I've sold and given away almost all of them. I got this gorgeous yarn from freecycle and decided that it's finally time to make a wearable scarf for myself. The lace pattern comes from Vogue Stitchonary. I love it!




Stripy Gloves
yarn: Knit Picks Felici, Atmosphere
needles: US 3, bamboo DPNs

I started these back in January when a wind storm knocked out power to most of Davis. We were without power and heat for 3 days. While I was freezing my butt off, I decided that it was an absolute travesty that I didn't have a decent pair of (non-snowboard) gloves. So I picked up my needles and some sock yarn and started these. When the power came back on, I totally forgot about them and didn't pick them up again until this fall.





Fall Fingerless Mitts
yarn: Mystical Creation Yarns Wool Silk
needles: US 5, aluminum DPNs

Our chilly evening walks with the puppy inspired me to finally pick up this yarn and knit up a pair of fingerless mitts for the fall. I love this yarn. It has a really rustic look, but it's so soft and wearable.

Caleb at 5 1/2 months

Here's some pics that I took back in June when Caleb was 5 1/2 months old and I was playing with the macro setting on my camera.

Caleb at the Park

Here's a few cute pics of Caleb at the park today. He's 20 weeks old right now.


(I've been working on a couple crafty projects. Pics will be posted in a week or two!)

4 Months!

Caleb got his last set of vaccines and he's finally free to meet the world. We've been working on loose-leash walking and my goodness, does it take a lot of patience! He just gets so excited when he sees other dogs or people or even just leaves and twigs on the ground. But he's learning quickly and getting better everyday.

Chrysalis Project

Here's an older project that I made for a class. I really liked the idea of the the light as a living thing that's incubated inside these chrysalis objects, connected to the electrical grid through the umbilical-like extension cord. Each one has a wire frame and knit skin. The largest is about 2 feet in length.

More Swap Goodies


Here's a few things I made for a recent swap. My partner is really into gaming (like Dungeons and Dragons), she loves Indian imagery and she's learning how to knit. So I made her a dice bag, reusable shopping bag, some bookmarks and a knitting needle roll.
