Clickety Clack - Hey, We're Back!

Hello Friends!  It's here! It's here! It's finally here!  Go ahead and listen Here!

Let me introduce you to two new members of the family:

Wallace and Grommet













and Chance

















Here is a picture of my first rug hooking project, a Judy Taylor Kit.

















And after taking the Rigid Heddle Weaving class from Craftsy with instructor, Angela Tong, here is my daughter's first woven scarf...


















and my first woven scarf in Auracania Chaiten Multy (sadly discontinued), a lovely raw silk yarn with beautiful drape.















And cotton tea towels, the second Craftsy class project 













Made from Lily Sugar and Cream. So soft and absorbent.
By the way, my sincere apologies to Angela Tong for completely butchering her last name on the podcast. I didn’t realize her last name was spelled with an ‘o’ and not an ‘a’. Next time I will be sure of someone’s name BEFORE we record.
This is how much hay you can get in the back of a Ram diesel. 











18 bales! Amazing!



Recipe for Peach Bellinis:
Champagne
1 oz. Peach Schnapps
2 oz. Peach puree

Rick and his Emmy. (He made me cut his head out of the photo :P ) 













Here’s my “What was I thinking?” Shawl which I made during the Ysolda Teague Follow Your Arrow Mystery Shawl Knit Along.  Made out of Kauni Rainbow.















Finished spinning up this BFL/Silk that I dyed last year. Can’t wait to cast on the Monsoon Shawl by Angela Tong found in the Spring 2014 issue of Interweave Knits. 




















Here is the sampler I made in the 6 hour Linda Gettman Rigid Heddle Weaving class I was blessed with at Madrona.


















Note the ‘inlay’ pattern I chose. Hee hee



















And here is a picture of my sock knitting idea. Two different socks on one circular needle. So far it’s working for me. 




















Sock on the left is Plymouth Happy Feet color 25, and on the right Biscottie & Cie in Melon D’eau.
Check out the Fish Lips Kiss Heel.  So simple!

Here is the sock that I picked up in a yarn swap and posted to the Surrogate Sock Knitters Group on Ravelry.  The pattern is a from a sock of the month club and unfortunately, I don't have the name nor do I know the name of the yarn. 




















And the Market Jacket by Tanis Gray in Cascade 220 (Grey Poupon colorway ;)



















And since my Ecuador by Joji Locatelli is in time-out, so it doesn’t get a picture.
It’s so great to be back everyone! Thanks for hanging in there! We’ve missed you!!
