Knitting

As Promised – A Bit of Knitting, A Bit of Throwing, A Bit of Ringing

ON MY NEEDLES

I seem to be caught in a startitis vortex, convinced that every new project start magically completes the WIP above it in the Everlasting Endless Knitting Queue, except it doesn’t.  The tabletop  next to my knitting chair continues to become more and more crowded and is developing a layered look, sort of like what you’d find in an archeological dig with recent stuff on top and progressively older stuff underneath that.  Here’s a few off the top-

Freak Flags

Sequences

Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 5

 

Freak Flags has progressed to this –

I’ve recently fallen in love with banners and such so when I saw the Freak Flags in MDK Sequences it was all over but the knitting.  The plan is to make a set of seasonal set for my mantle, with this particular set in fall colors.  Winter will be next using blues, grays and whites.

I’m making good progress on my Simple Skype socks –

RINGING

Have I ever mentioned that I’m a handbell ringer?  Advent is upon us, a busy busy time for musicians, with extra rehearsals and the butterflies that go hand in hand with ringing in public,but it’s a labor of love.  Aren’t they beautiful?

THROWING

Here’s a look at the first pot out of my very first glaze kiln –

I like the inside better I think.

BIG DAY TODAY

Hit the ground running this morning…..Baby Shepherd will be baptized at 10:30 mass this morning and we’re having a Baptism/Birthday/Belated Birthday chili supper this evening to celebrate.  I’ll do my best to get photos of the Baptism Boy and Birthday Boys up on the blog in the next few days.  Busy with blessings!
