DPNs Again

What is the world coming to?  I've actually used dpns for another project.

Baby items just seem to be more manageable on short double points than on circulars for me, so hence the break in tradition.  Besides, it's good to be flexible, I think.

I learned of a new baby the other day, and since we'll be meeting with his dad on Tuesday, I decided to whip up a hat and pair of socks.  I had some leftover Hazelknits Aritisan Sock in the Hometown Football colorway (Seattle Seahawks) and I thought this would be a good use for it.  It's fun to be able to do a quick project now and then and hopefully the set will be a welcome addition to the little one's wardrobe.

I'll let a teddy bear try on the items when they're done, so you can see the result.

The Princess finds her Prince

Congratulations, you two.  We look forward to welcoming the Prince into the family.

Home Just In Time

One thing I miss when I'm in the desert is the variation in colors and textures that we have in the Northwest.  I returned to Seattle early enough in November to see the end of the fall colors.  These last few days have been windy and rainy, so now the leaves are pretty much gone.  I enjoyed them immensely while they lasted.

One thing I don't enjoy is the aftermath of the leaves from the large wisteria, which continue to fall for seemingly forever and insist on blowing into my kitchen.

Oh well, it could be worse.

It's Another Day in Paradise

I have to soak up as much of these colors and the amazing sunshine, for soon I will be back in the land of drizzle.
