The ruminations of an artist on art & life...art quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

On the Needles


Back to crafty endeavors--currently I have on my knitting needles this project...using up scraps of yarn, but darn! I just may have to trek on over to the yarn shop because I don't think I have enough "scraps"...one nice thing since I moved, I am within walking distance of one of my favorite yarn shops in Oakland--Article Pract (this is also dangerous...)

This vest should look like this when finished--except I am using different yarns...and the yarn here is variegated---so mine is a bit more stripey---but you all get the picture...


Thought for the day:
Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it.

WOW! Great sweater, incredibly beautiful. I used to always wear vests, particularly sweater vests (but I've gained too much weight! :-( )

Thanks for the link again.

I think this will be a great vest. I need sweaters to keep my arms warm but I bet this could turn into one.

I made afghans to use up my old yarns and yep, I too had to stop and pick up a few new ones just to keep the colors balanced!
