Light, shadow, and color.

Just off the needles,  photographed in my favorite flooded light place  on the landing of the stairs, beneath the roof window facing to the southern sky.  Every half hour the sun progress across, the light and shadow changes dramatically, the angles creating dark against light and every grey in between.

I think of my brother, how he is always in need for a new chullo, and needing a fresh idea for yet another, it came into being, trying out light and shadow … with variegating color.

Just a little knitted bit between bigger knitting bits.

A diversion of an idea . . .

I made these with two-stitch i-cord and unravelled the yarn. I somehow really enjoyed the un-twisting and picking each strand-of-four out. Crazy , I know.

I just get so excited about photographing the new knitted things, but I’m heading on down to Oakville Post to send this fun frolick off to my brother now, and upon my return it is time to get back to the forthcoming thing I’ve taken too long of a break from.
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios in colors Natural, Black, and Arco Iris

Spring about to be sprung…

Spring Tees 2016 footage

News from Northern California as the drops fall heavily is that another spring is on its way. Vernal Equinox this year is Sunday, March 20, in two weeks exactly, and therefore I have a goal. I am confident I will finish these, and feeling easy enough about it to share progress reports along the way.  Here they are, the straight-away torso sections of Spring Tee’s for Miss Sixteen & Miss Thirteen, in luxurious & soft worsted-weight Malabrigo Rios, (seriously beautiful yarn folks!) in colors Water Green and Bobby Blue. Pattern to be used ~ Calidez ~ and later updated to include this ‘lighter weight’ tee option  with lower a choice of swooping springy neckline with short-short sleeves… so yes,  you might say these are prototypes!  Watch this space as they grow before your eyes. Personally , I am charmed off my feet by them.
