A bit of this, a bit of that...

I have finished the first gift for the Winter Solstice/Christmas stash.  Itty bitty little stitches...52" of them...
 ...I finally ironed it at 4:00 a.m. today so that I could make sure it wasn't all twisted before I cast off.
It seriously took me all of January to knit this tie, but I love the finished product, and I know a certain little dapper fellow will too.  Having said that, if I decide to make another, I don't think I will use sock yarn.

February's project is washcloths.  I cast this one on according to the pattern (which called for 63 stitches of worsted weight cotton.  It's huge!   I will finish this one the way it is, but the next couple will be cast on with maybe 43 stitches.  I will pair them up with a pottery soap dish and a bar of fantastic handmade soap. I am hoping to get four of these done this month.

 On the pottery front - the first teapot pod (teapod?) is finished.  N thinks it looks like a genie lamp, but I like it none-the-less.  There will be more - possibly with a shorter spout.  It's still drying.

 Test spoons.
Test pods.  Nothing is glazed yet.

And just because I thought this was hilarious...N was using this work space last night.  A dremel, chisel, a bunch of very sharp utility knives and blades, and a stuffed knit penquin!  One of these things is not like the others.  You may recognize Linda's penquin.

  1. I love your pottery and I love that N has a little fibery-ness in his project space. :-)

    The scarf is great... I certainly appreciate the speed that comes with bigger yarn, but I think I prefer the refine-ness that comes with finer yarn. ;-)

  2. Maybe the Penguin was for company? LOL. Love the pottery!!!

  3. Your pottery is beautiful. The tie is pretty cool too!
