I find it curious that a town can privately build a new $12,000,000.00 maritime center while it has to close down a school.

Did you know that a group of crows is technically called a Murder of Crows. Fantastic!
There is a car here in Port Townsend that has a murder of crows following it around as it drives through the streets at a limited 25 mph. Driver's side only, the birds weave in and out battling each other to be closest to the driver. I'm not so sure I would like.
The Scarf is made of 100% merino wool and is from a pattern called Road Not Taken.

Mrs. Claus Mitts are hot off the press and my latest design. 100% wool and mohair, they are super cute, but I'm going to make another pair out of alpaca to test the pattern and publish here. So check back if you are interested.
This particular pair will be heading to the Indie Banditas Bazaar arts and crafts fair where I will be selling them.

Phenomenon Original I have been noticing during my online knitting parusal a bunch of big fat mittens called Bella's mittens. After a quick look on Ravelry I found a free pattern for them and they are from a movie. Of course I have to try to make a pair. On further research the original designer notes the palm pattern. Someone made a pair with the seed stitch, but that's not it, then another person designed a pair with the proper stitching on the palm, still haven't figured out what exactly that is called. I am making a simple pair by Subliminal Rabbit and then maybe I will try my own version with the cross pattern on the palm, but not the thumb. If they turn out I'll bring them to the Indie Banditas Bazaar to sell. Picture of my B M 's coming soon.

A few years back I won (8) skeins of beautiful handspun yarn at a silent auction. This blue reminded me so much of the San Juan Straits and looking for marbles on Glass Beach that I designed a pair of bobbled mitts to wear on the 3.5 mile hike. I have the pattern listed in my Etsy store and also on Ravelry, both have instand downloading which is terribly convenient if you have the handspun yarn ready to go!
