Expanding the library

Even though I am taking a break from knitting, that hasn't stoppped me from buying more books for it. From reading other blogs, many sing the praises of Elizabeth Zimmermann (EZ for short). So I acquired two books by her, Knitting without tears and the Almanac. I have also seen wonderous colored quilts by Denyse Schmidt. So I bought the quilt it kit by her. Cant wait to get started on some of the projects. Aren't coupons for books great??

side note: whether its blogger or my computer, it better get its act together b/c I would REALLY like to post some pictures.

side note 2: I forgot, you can see the pictures in my yahoo photo in sidebar

Switching gears

Since I have so many hobbies, I feel as th ough I have to rotate through them just so I dont forget how to do something. I was getting a bit bogged down with knitting, so I switched to beading. For instant gratification, I made this black crocheted rope. I've also started on a mystrey project. Can you guess what I"m making?

Sam is my craft room/computer room watchdog. He makes sure that no one takes my yarn and that I put things away.

If you cant tell, he likes his belly rubbed.

Lady Eleanor

Well, its done. The yarn is Noro Silk garden in shade 65 (6 balls) and 205 (2 balls). The fringe is moonlight mohair. Its hard to capture the true colors of the wrap but I think the pictures are close enough. Not sure the actual length but it is over 5 feet. For now, its unblocked.
