it seems both me and one of our many spiders are in a crafty mood, feeling the need to weave, knit and sew. i keep forgetting to take photos of my projects, but here is a little sample of what i still have at the house - a soft and cozy poncho for my sweet 3-year-old niece, a merino toque with a fleece lining around the edge for extra softness and warmth, and some "sort of" gloves inspired in part by Carola at Sheep and No City's kolenya.
These have been especially rewarding, as i constantly have cold hands but find full gloves a little tricky when out taking pictures and doing just about everything else. I have made mittens in the past, but this fall have ventured into gloves. I made a wonderful blue-green pair for my mom for her birthday, but again, forgot the photo. am now working on an off-white pair.
the days are passing quickly as we approach the changing time (daylight savings on the west coast, oct 29). the fleeting days are especially worrying as we approach our moving day, and shortly after, our departure date for our vacation. we are moving off the sunshine coast and back to vancouver island at the end of this month. but before we settle in for a wet coastal winter, we are going on a climbing road trip to california for the whole month of november! yippee! posting may not happen much while i am gone, but rest assured i will have many a picture when we return.
