The Walton’s 45th Anniversary Reunion

Yesterday was “bucket list day”. After standing in five extremely long lines for 6.5 hours with no chairs, no lunch, no shade, hot and sunburned, we finally met the cast. Hubby deserves a medal for sure.

Messy Bun Hat (aka Ponytail Hat)

My Colorado Rockies daughter requested a messy bun/ponytail hat. These are highly popular now-a-days. She and hubby enjoy soaking in the hot springs and she wanted one to keep her ears and head warm during their winter visits.

Knitting in the round on circular needles is lots of fun!

I am pleased with the end result. If my hair was long enough hair for a messy bun hat, I would knit one for myself. 

She loves it!

Basket Weaving Series: Day 3

The name of this basket is Harvest Gold Storage. It is woven on a wood base. This step of the basket, adding spokes to the base, always reminds me of a big spider.

The bottom portion of the basket uses two colors of reed to give a checkerboard effect.

The mid-section of the basket is woven with space dyed reed. I love the fall colors. It reminds me of Virginia trees.

More rows of checker board are woven at the top and it is embellished with handmade handles.
