Knitting Heels

I think I have finally conquered knitting heels (instead of it conquering me). That only took 2+ years……

Knit Purl Hunter KAL sock videos and instructions are the best! Thank you Michelle Hunter.

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!

A Fun Day At Basket Weaving

Now that Christmas has past, I am looking through photos and reflecting on a fun day of basket weaving with the gals of Tightly Basketry Guild of the NRV. We had a great day weaving darling little ornaments.

Special thanks to our fearless leader, Deezie Nelson, for weaving an ornament for all of us!

I made this one and the other two.

I have always wanted to put a yoyo and button on a basket. I think it turned out cute!

A fun day was enjoyed by all weavers!
