Word.

It's funny how quickly this....

can become this...

My friend, Christa, asked for a green hat with royal blue beads and I churned out another Odessa in a weekend. I love the beads! It's a really cool color combo. And since I was making Christa something, I whipped up some fingerless gloves for Kaitlin! They are made from wonderfully soft alpaca... I think I need to make some for myself to keep my hands warm in the office.

Warm fingerless gloves.

We went out to lunch in our hand-knit regalia and Eric was kind enough to take a portrait. Handknits for everyone! And Christa & Kaitlin seemed to really love their hat and gloves. Yay!

Word. We did this pose so that Kaitlin didn't feel silly showing off her gloves. :)

I made a trip to the West Coast this weekend to explore a new job opportunity and I was able to start a couple projects. I started my self-dyed, self-striped socks and they are turning out how I planned for them to be! How about that?!

These colors remind me of something... I can't quite place it...

And I started my Malabrigo scarf which is so lusciously soft that I wish I could wrap my whole body in the beautiful colors and hibernate for a month. Yes.

Another "My so-called Scarf." Love this pattern.

I really like the way your hand-dyed sock yarn is knitting up! It reminds me of popsicles, I think, or sorbet. Anyway, I just came across your blog and I love it - I'll be back!
