fog and a scarf...




  • the fog continues...

    it is currently 54.4° farenheit
    on the Mendocino coast...

    not what many of you would call
    "summer weather", eh?



    good knitting weather, though...


    I'm currently working on a scarf for lulu...

    a bit of lace, a bit of geometry,
    a bit of garter stitch

    it will be short and warm and easy-to-wear when she races her lotus


    yup, that's my mom!

    summer fog...



    a chilly fog rolled in last night...



    and here it sits over my "backyard"...

    sweater weather...in July?
    yup! 
    it's typical here on the Mendocino coast...

    now you know why I call this my
    "summer fog" sweater


    it is really the perfect thing to throw on when the coastal fog rolls in...


    colorful, warm, oversized,
    and ideal for the beach
    on a grey summer's day!

    sidetracked...

    so...





    the wee hat that I made as a swatch for an 
    up-coming project is so adorable 
    (in my humble opinion)...



    I just had to make another!   


    it is now on the blocking board.

    notes have been written, 
    chart has been made...
    I think we have a new hat pattern!

    sometimes, getting sidetracked
    is a good thing...

    swatch one...


    this o-wool classic 2-ply has been sitting in my stash, waiting...


    wait no longer, my pretty yarn...


    swatch number one is underway!
