So there’s this really great thing called The Awesome Sweater Project. This awesome sweater gets mailed all over the world while people wear and photograph it’s awesomeness. I got it this past weekend and asked some Old S.L.U.G. Queens to join me in celebrating awesomeness in Eugene, Oregon. It’s off to someone in Texas now. Photos taken by Roger Rix.
My guerrilla knit group, The Eugene Knotty Knitters did our springtime yarn bomb this morning. April Showers, Knit Flowers. Check it out if you’re local. 15th and Orchard on the UO Campus. You can see more photos on our facebook or flickr page.
I had some of this leftover yarn that I dyed with Kool Aid (I call it Bird of Paradise) and wasn’t sure what to do with it. I ended up striping it with some soft grey to make this hat by Leethal. To add more flair to it I needle felted hearts over the ears. Because of the aviator style of the hat and the red hearts I call this hat my Amelia EarHEART hat.
Every year a local gift shop has a wacky Easter bonnet contest. This is my first year entering. Knitted and crocheted buunnies, chicks, hatching eggs, flowers and a slug or two. Here’s to hoping I win!
Mass media recognizes us.
Gratuitous picture of yarn. Duh.
I’m not trying to turn my blog into a knitting blog or anything, but this is what happens when you’re holed up for a few days trying to get over being sick. You have all the time in the world to knit! A friend of mine handspun this stunning yarn and I fell hard for it. I bought it from her ages ago and just now found a project for it. The lace on this shawl is supposed to look like ginkgo leaves. Pretty! You can see more photos and read more details on my Ravelry page. I still have about 100 yards of this yarn left so I’m knitting a quick lace scarf with it- I’ll post pictures of that when I’m done.
I finished my Strawberry Shortcake mitts! I even painted my nails to match. Read more about my knitting on my Ravelry page.
