Cathy Cullis in the U.K. I've been following her blog for awhile, after seeing a few of her pieces on one of my favorite artist's blogs Ornamental. Her artwork is very quirky and so in tune with my kind of non-mainstream art. I really wanted to buy one of her little dollies, but alas, they were all immediately sold out. Above is the little book I bought...
We are supposed to get a "big" snowstorm tonight/tomorrow. Even the "health" club posted signs saying to check their website in the morning to see if they would be closed.
I always worry about my daughter driving into Chicago when there is bad weather. Snow days are fun...if you still get paid for taking the day(s) off work. And don't have to go out of your house for any reason.
Finally finished (if you could call it that) my first "fingerless mitt/handwarmer" . There are so many mistakes/holes/ wrongness. I looked at videos on knitting "the thumb" and none of them seem to address doing the thumb that I was trying to do. But I just wasn't getting some of the initial instructions for beginning the thumb from the pattern in the book. For these pictures, on right hand and reversed on left hand, I had to take a crochet hook and try to lamely closed up all the holes, etc. If only I could photoshop younger, unwrinkled hands/fingers into these shots....sigh. and blah.
