and he's...


off to high school...



that's my youngest, the freshman, walking into his new school...

how can it be?

geez...I need to knit...

lulu's scarf...

it is simple and geometric...
just a bit of lace and some squares...




originally designed for my mother, Linda (aka Lulu), it looks great wrapped around the neck...




 or worn as a cowl...



and makes a great background for your favorite pin...




the pattern is being test-knit
and will be ready for publication
next month...

by the way...
if you are in the Mendocino area in September, please join me  for a 
Lulu's Scarf Knit-along

milano...

getting ready to play with a new yarn...


...milano, from debbie bliss,
which arrived at the yarn shop yesterday...

it's a tweedy wool blend
that fascinates me

I think it will make a handsome man's hat,  when combined with karabella's aurora 8


now to find that size 8 circular...

hexagons...

the blanket continues to grow...



hexagon upon hexagon...
with the occasional stripe thrown in...

this is a surprisingly fun process
the perfect stash-buster!
though I do admit to buying a couple NEW skeins last week...

hey...I needed the color, okay?


so...what are YOU knitting?

the hat blankie...



the perfect hat-knitter's blankie 
is underway...




hexagon upon hexagon--basically flattened hat crowns--knitted in yummy wools from my stash... 

inspired by this:  Hexa-ghan 

thanks, verybusymonkey!
