What I've Been Up To




Dragonfly, originally uploaded by Buxtrosion.

Not a lot of knitting progress posted, but I've been doing stuff! I've sent off some socks I sample-knitted and finished knitting a bag I designed. I've also been reading a lot about photography and yarn dyeing. Hopefully I will do some dyeing this week and post some useful pics and info. I spent last week running around Austin with my little brother (this pic was from Mt. Bonnell). I've been wasting time on Ravelry and LibraryThing. And I've been trying to get myself mentally prepared for moving to the bay area in a month. I'm going to miss my Austin knitter friends, but the whole reason I met them is cause they're web savvy, so I bet we'll be staying in touch (esp. since quite a few of us are on Ravelry or soon-to-be on Ravelry).

Awww...We're going to miss you too.

I've been thinking a lot about yarn dying as well. Do you know of any good websites or books? I'm having trouble finding stuff that goes beyong the bare basics.

I love the photos, they are beautiful!

Have you seen the new KAL/swap for hand dyed yarn - it looks really good...

I'll add links to books I've used later.

Your picture of the dragonfly is beautiful. Lovely.

Btw, thanks for the felting links. I know they will come in handy when I pluck up the courage to give it a go.:)

You're really going to be missed. I didn't even get much of a chance to know you, but I enjoyed the bit I had!

Oh, and those photos are gorgeous. You're such a nice tour guide, taking your brother to Mt. Bonnell!

beautiful photograph of the stitch markers, makes me want to get out my old (really old- it was my grandpa's when he was young) canon and do some real photography again!
