I learned to crochet! Lindsay showed me how.
We made vase holders from an old Rowan magazine. This one’s one round too tall, but you get the idea – now I need a house with a porch so I can hang them for summer dinner parties.
I enjoyed some time off in the Okanagan this week – we went to the old car show ‘n’ shine, saw the baby hawk below the orchard, and went along the Kettle Valley trail to check out the old rock ovens that baked bread for the railway workers. That cute dog above was a friendly promotional ploy to get customers into a cafe. I don’t know what that dye is doing to his self-esteem or his skin, but he was being pretty good about it.
Plus, one bonus photos: different stuff shows up at the car show, including a few cars straight out of Austin Powers.
I haven’t been knitting at all, as I lay low after a dramatic start to the summer. So I know this is a bit of a cop-out, but I’d like to show you some designs that just might jump-start my knitting mojo.
The last time I bought a Rowan magazine, I was a bit disappointed in the bland styles, and so haven’t bought one in several years. But Rowan was a big part of what got me interested in knitting in the first place, so when I saw Rowan 48, I got really excited. The Russian doll inspired section is especially lovely.
