I call this one Happy Birthday as I see an explosion of snowmen making colorful snow cones all over and think of Frosty the Snowman coming to life, or would that be the end of his life?
I finished two other sweaters but until they reach their destination I can't share them with you as they are gifts.
Last dye day the Pixies dyed this up for me. There are 6 skeins of variegated sock and a medium and dark violet. Also an undyed goes with this.
I have already drafted the pattern but first I have a few more items I need to b/o. 2 samples, a pair of sock and a top which all are patterned.
This is fingering 100% silk which is for a different top, another eventual when I finish my work knitting.
A very dear friend of mine who understands me real well sent me below. :-) LOVE having another plant which is difficult to kill with my brown thumb.
She knows I have a small sill here and so sent a tall thin pot, soil and cutting from her garden. It's now in the sill and growing well. Thanks Mel!
Here are the plants at night with DD's offering in the front... they are all gone now but will be long loved and remembered.
Very into tactile senses of late. These candles glow into the night.
A very strange thing happened. See the black container candle? Well it used to be just like the one on the right, clear and yellow. It burned way down to the very bottom as you can barely see around the green textured glass in front of it. There was a very thick and substantial wick in this one which made the entire thing liquid each night.
Well late one night I had to call the Pixie's in to witness it in action. The air within the candle glass would swirl and then with a POP would ignite and come out of the glass. I initially thought that the black was a resin of some sort as that would explain this phenomenon but no... it was just soot!
