Done, Like a Cake

I just  finished binding off a precious confection. I love the sight of freed needles. I used one of my favorite BOs - reverse i-cord. I look forward to showing you more about this project later. Until then, it is a secret.

Hot. Hot. Hot.

Ventura residents have about a 4 degree range of temperature tolerance, 68 degrees F to 72 degrees F. We have been about 20 degrees above our upper limit for the entire week. The girl who was raised in the high dessert of Southern CA is returning to take b over the pampered beach bum off the last 7 years.
Today, we avoid the heat and knit and dig at the beach.
We began by running through a local fountain. They will probably have a grand finale of pool swimming while I am at with tonight.

Super Stretchy

I just wanted to share that I used JSSBO on closing an elastic casing for a skirt waistband. It seemed right.

Happy Needles

I just finished something that I have been thinking about making for months, a needle book for a dear friend and fellow Leo. After much reflection and pinned inspiration, I put this original gem together.

Fair Day

Woooooooooo. The Fair is opening in Ventura today and I have my tickets. Now, I knit and wait for my family to enjoy the opening ceremony in about an hour and a half.

Sleeves Will Be Conquered

I think that I could make myself famous for saying (among other things), "Sleeves are my Kryptonite." A couple of years ago, I took to making them first (Betty sweater), realizing that course as a way to beat my own short coming and to play with uncertain gauge. Luckily, it seems that Jared Flood feels solidarity in the case for making sleeves first;  his sweater, Ranger, begins with the sleeves. One down and the second one on its way.

Neon Love

We got this glorious, saturated neon Plymouth Encore yarn and it needed to be mine. Oh, the plans that I have made!
When I showed a ball of it to my 2 year old daughter, she said "Yes!" before I could say anything else about it.
First, I am making a ton of squares and mixing these glowing colors with black for a little blanket for my girl.
Then, I am going to take the pink with gray and make her another tomten.
