Yesterday’s knitting walk was lovely. I followed Emma down in the meadow above the canyon (coyote-ville), and to our surprise, Emma spotted something very curious flapping in the breeze ahead.
Closer and closer, curiouser and curiouser !
Ah ha ! There has been someone who has been adorning the mountain with Tibetan Prayer Flags around here lately. The Masked Flagger has struck again ! They are admittedly quite a spectacle of artistic beauty, even bleached by the sun and wind-whipped to shreds.

Now for a tune we just wrote, (first recording and very very rough, but the spirit is there!) A tune just so cheerful and hopeful sounding , and the prayer flags seemed so much to promise a real change and happy days ahead. Believe me when I tell you that everything is going to be Just Fine!
Wow, that is a pretty sweater. Ambitious for me, but no doubt its in your range of talent. That is one pretty sweater.
Thank you Martha ! It’s just a basic EZ style yoked sweater… you’ll see. I’m making hash of the button band & steek edges way too bulky for my liking. But oh well….
Those colors warm my heart. I must see this one in person. Are you mitering the button bands at the corners? Prayer flags are so spiritual a find on a fall walk.
Morrie, I can take you there ! Soon, after the Thanksgiving holiday? xxx
You just keep churning them out! This is looking very good. Can’t wait to see it finished.
Now, if I got me a dog I might just be able to keep up with you knitting wise. 🙂
Oh Lizzi, I sure wish you were walking & knitting with me 🙂 So, I’m doing ‘surgery’ so to speak, with an iron , moist rags, and drawing out the stranded yoke more, basically pushing and shoving (gently) and going to maker fit as I want her to fit. I love the vintage wooden buttons I bought last winter for it…. going to be posting them soon !
