Bulky Blue Cabled Sweater, originally uploaded by postscript love.
It’s 45 degrees here this morning and I wish I had this adorable blue sweater to keep me warm. Doesn’t she look toasty?
Just knit up this delicious kerchief for a certain someone who cannot be named… smiles… wonder who it might be?
Hmmm… and what’s that underneath that yummy green kerchief? Could it be a tantalizing stack of knitting books? Why yes, it is! And right there on the top is my current read, A History of Hand Knitting by Richard Rutt, and it’s absolutely fascinating. I just love that the cover depicts both women and men knitting, so cool.
On that note, I’d like to say how thankful I am that someone, a long time ago, invented knitting!

For the second installment of Blue Monday, I’ve found this beautiful, lacy little number. I just love the way it hangs! Makes me want to make something delicate.

Here’s an oldie I made for the little one when she was, well, a really little one!
This is my Lil’ Peanut Knot Top pattern embellished with some crocheted “dots”.

Found these today on Ravelry/ Flickr. Aren’t they just the cutest?
Thought y’all would like ’em!
Also, I’m having some professional photos of some of my work taken this weekend by my dear friend, and the very talented photographer/ artist/ graphic designer/ mom, Lauri Johnston.
So keep an eye out for the new photos, coming soon!

This shot was sent in to me by Juno.
Nice color, huh?
I always love to see what kinds of different textures and colors folks use when they knit up my patterns.
If you have a shot of something that you’ve knit up from one of my patterns, send it my way. Who knows, maybe you’ll make the blog or be the next model for one of my Etsy listings!
Thought I’d steal a great idea from my favorite public radio station, KUT.
A lifetime ago I used to get together every Monday evening with my best lifeguard buddies to play cards and listen to Blue Monday – an amazing radio blues show. Those were good times…
In memory of those “good times”, I am starting a new thing here in my little blog world… Blue Monday. Every Monday I will post something blue from the wonderful world of fiber arts.
So, with no further ado… the first Blue Monday entry… “november rain”.
It was hard to pick just one from all the great shots I found out there, but since my toes are feeling a bit chilly right now, I thought I’d go with these lovely, swirly, very blue, knee highs.
This is the first baby bunting that I ever knit… I loved it so much! I used Lamb’s Pride Bulky and then used some super soft mohair yarn to make the little hat and scarf… so sweet!
Woo boy! Being pregnant and chasing a toddler around sure does ware you out! Oh ya, so I’m pregnant… ***smiles***
Seeing as how I’ve not been getting too much new work done due to my new found exhaustion, I’ve decided to post a few photos from my archives of long lost work.
I made this sweet little gnome many years ago, and I am currently working on a pattern based off of this picture.
I’ll keep y’all posted on the progress of the pattern as it comes along.
