I'm trying to see if I can get through a post without an alpaca. Day at a time, and all that.
I'm borrowing from my mom : her FO's spied last weekend.
From The Knitter's Book of Yarns, the Baby Soft Cardigan, in a superwash wool but I've forgotten which. The three pigs pewter buttons, love'em.
This one from 12 Month of Knitting,in a cotton blend (Rowan? Debbie Bliss? Can't remember but I know I was with her when she bought it last summer). Again with the buttons. She knits them for a benefit auction for a DC charter school . Every year she does 3 or 4 , never the same pattern twice. Last year she did a Mariposa Cardigan from Shear Spirit in bright limey green with flower buttons and I didn't manage to get a shot of it. arrrgh. The version in the book is below, as a substitute.
Just when you think I might get through the post without an alpaca, look what sneaks in.

and then there's my nephew, Cory. His first NYC acting gig, in this hiphop video, you can't miss him. He's Tom Cruise. Dance white boy!

Hi Gale! Thanks for visiting my blog. I've been lurking on your blog for quite a while. I can't tell you how much I enjoy it -- especially the amazing photography.

I'd love to put the gourds on etsy (GREAT IDEA, thanks). I have a winter fair that I am taking them to in a month. I'll let you know if I have any left over. If not, I'm hoping to grow more in the summer.

Love the baby jackets! I bought the Knitter's Book of Yarns just for that first sweater. This weekend at the yarn store, I sold a copy of that book, just for that pattern.
