When we got together for our December outing, my crafty friends brought some beautiful creations. With wheelbarrow loads of acorns in her yard, Deb has become a wreath-making master:
I noticed this fall that I've collected quite a few acorn decorations, and this is a perfect addition to the collection.
Maybe because she's not a knitter, I forget that Marilyn has other fiber talents, including weaving and spinning. She gifted me with a skein she had spun that needs someone to knit it up.
She's also been dabbling in hypertufa and other cement molding, and made this cute chubby bird to sit among my plants:
Thanks so much, ladies!
D and I have been trying to take a weekly hike. Some sights from Ninigret:
We took a walk in a tiny wooded sculpture park in South Kingstown:
There has been knitting, and even an FO, which needs modeled shots at some point- the Grizzly Vest made with Berroco North Star. Front:
I made the front and back longer than called on, because I preferred it that way and also I wanted to use up all the yarn. I wasn't sure how it would fit and whether it would look weird, but it turned out fine and is a soft warm layering piece.
I joined the Project Peace Knitalong for December, a wonderful idea for these troubling times. I'm using beautiful peachy Fearless Fibers sock yarn from the stash.
And I'm very excited to be knitting Pussyhats for my fellow Moms who will be attending the Women's March in DC on January 21! I'm starting with this Debbie Bliss Aran from the stash, and will have to check if I have more pink yarn. I'm planning to go the March in Boston, and will make a hat for me and whoever wants to join me! Fellow knitters, if you are unable to attend a march consider knitting up a couple of these quick and easy hats to deliver to those who will be marching. The info is on the Pussyhats link.
