Yes, it’s true. I’m hungry. My stomach’s growling. But still I couldn’t stop folding, shooting, and flickring until this mosaic was ready to post! It’s my second entry for the Kodak EasyShare printer giveaway being offered by fellow WordPress blogger, BitterSweet. Deadline is tomorrow. I’m in under the final hours with time to spare. To see the full photos rather than squared-off crops of the original, click here. Another blogging friend recently raised a discussion about passion versus balance. So … if I bypassed dinner to “play” — which is what all of this creative stuff feels like — would you say that I am passionate or out of balance?
The beaded scarf is rather boring to knit, so I put it aside for a bit and cast on a pair of mittens:
Would you have guessed that someone who is so crazy about lots of colors, all together, would select a simple white yarn?! I surprised myself. The pattern is the Aran Islands Mittens in Interweave Press’s “Folk Mittens” by Marcia Lewandowski. The pattern chart requires focused attention to each and every row and I had to photocopy an enlargement so I could see each stitch change at a glance. These are too tricky to work on during Knitting Nite while socializing with my friends. But for early morning knitting at home with just Tiny Tigress purring at my elbow, it’s delightful to watch the Aran pattern emerge with each row. And aren’t the cabled cuffs fun?
