Made these for a friend, whose birthday was last November… Started out that the yarn (my handspun) was going to be a lacy scarf… but it didn’t look right in a couple of lace patterns I tried, and then in the one where it did, it was scritchy against my neck. It was soft in the hank though, so made really soft mitts. More blather on my Ravelry Project Page. She’s had them for a couple of months now, I was slow to get photos!
I was at Univ of ME on Wednesday to give a lecture to a class. Went up with my friend, the recipient of the alpaca mitts, and we took her daughter out to lunch when I was done. And then went to the Hudson Museum. They have a small but beautiful collection of molas.
Baskets old and new… I liked them all, including this Katahdin Arctic basket (I think the basket style with four corners on the square bottom is called a Katahdin basket, but I’m not sure). The butterfly on the top is the Katahdin Arctic.
Not sure you remember the video I shot of alligators, but alligators mean something to me… not sure what, but something. Anyhow, though this is a croc, it’s pretty fearsome! I am intrigued by it, desirous of it, and frightened by it all at the same time…
