ON THE NEEDLES/IN THE KILN
My WIPs have been reduced the past couple of days, I wish I could say that they’ve entered FOville but, no, they’ve been frogged or otherwise put on hold, mostly because I just wasn’t satisfied with them. Life’s too short, right? I’m still working on an Olivia Petit sweater in a larger size, much larger and now I remember why I prefer to knit baby stuff. I have to admit though, that it’s knitting up much, much, much faster than the original Olivia, due to, I’m sure, my finally figuring out the pattern and not having to knit and then tink or frog.
I decided to include a pottery WIP today, my first (sort of) recognizable object, a really, really big coffee cup.
Glazed and ready for the second firing
I call this photo “The Big Six”. Grown-ups are, left to right, our niece Julia, her mom and our sister in law, Patty, Mr. Iknead’s mom, Mema and my baby boy, Jordan. Aren’t the matching dresses the cutest things??

Right after this picture, Harper put a cigarette butt in her mouth. Yuck x1000000000
BY THE BOOK
I’m currently deeply engrossed in Gwen W. Steege’s The Knitter’s Life List. This particular book is from my local library, but I’m seriously inclined to buy myself a copy, just because I love its lists, pictures and fiber people profiles. Off to stalk this book online….
Don’t forget to check out the Small Things Yarn Along.
