December 31, 2010

I have all these excellent friends with excellent blogs that I read and marvel at–Lindsey and Kat and Hollis and Becky are all making stuff and writing about things and I love them for it. And then Naomi sends me new things that she’s writing and I’m amazed.

So, given that it’s the last day of 2010 (see the subject line) it’s time for show and tell, with a bit of resolve to have more focus (here and everywhere) in the new year.

my bicycles at valentino pier

This is a photo of my bike at Valentino Pier, in Red Hook, from a few weeks ago. When I parked to go to Baked to get brownies and coffee before sitting down to read on the pier, I got to park up against a yarn-bombed bike rack!

The rack next to that one was also yarn-wrapped, in a different pattern:

Red Hook is full of surprising and lovely things. Especially gardens.


As well as reading on the pier, I got in a bit of work on my Entomology shawl

which I put on hold for a while to knit some fingerless mitts as a sample-knit for Yarnia, my dear friend Lindsey’s yarn store in Portland Oregon. You can read my guest blog post about the mitten-knitting over the Yarnia blog, but here are a few photos:
