BBR Photo Shoot Reveals

Now that the patterns have been released, I can finally show you more from my photo shoots last October.  Marly, Natalie and I had fun zipping around town taking pictures of the latest Bijou Basin Ranch patterns knit up in their latest new colors!  I especially liked this set at the 'Pec (El Chapultepec, famous for "hot burritos and cool jazz.")  As always, Natalie was a great model.  Natalie also brought along several bags and pieces of jewelry from her friends at The Sassy Factory
The bright colors of this wall really brought out the brilliance of the yarn. 

...and I loved the taxi-hailing pictures.

Marly designed this piece and Natalie spotted this red and orange art installation.  I ended up with some of the red yarn, you know how I feel about red! 

Later in the week, Marly and I met up with Ashley to shoot the remaining pieces, including this sky blue top.  I purposely tracked down this blue building I frequently drive by. 

If I had to pick a second favorite color, it would likely be green.  I like the warmth of this color, especially. 

I think this is one of my favorite pieces of the set.  I love the idea that it has sleeves, but you can wrap up in it too.  Sounds perfect!

modular knitting

On the plus side, modular knitting gives one interesting options for colorwork and color blocking.  Sometimes the dye process can give the yarn its own commentary, like this changing of scales. However, there are often many more ends to weave in.  This one is not too bad, but there's at least four ends on every row - 14 rows.  Still, interesting to try something new! Details on my Ravelry page , if you are interested!!  Have you tried modular knitting?  Thumbs up or down??

May days

May was full of flowers bursting open in the garden, mostly purple!   I'm trying to let my garden rest this year, but I had stocked up on seeds in January and could not resist starting some for pots, so we are growing San Marzano tomatoes, and a couple zucchinis and basil.  We'll see how it goes.  It's always good to learn new things in the garden.   I'm doing the photo list thing, again.  I'm on a quest for the perfect cloudscape .  In the meantime, finding lots of beautiful scenes with clouds, but not sure I've captured my interpretation of cloudscape yet.   A little knitting, quite a bit of quilting, and more than enough weeding fill my days; trying to get in some driving lessons, and wishing we'd done a lot more last year when traffic was much lighter - especially in the city.  But we're here this year, and getting through fine.   Every month has flown by, this year, and my pictures remind me that there are precious sights and memories all around.  W

knitting: projects that last - mittens and hats

There's only so much time for knitting and limited space for yarn stash.  Instead of buying so much yarn, I'd rather buy better yarn: yarn I love to work with and is long wearing.  Here are some pieces that I've knitted and loved and loved, even repaired to keep wearing!  In other words, pieces that were worth the time and money.   All the patterns in this post are my own.  I will chalk it up to the fact that I have knitted sooo many hats and mittens, that I have honed my patterns to what I really like!   Now With Thicker Frosting! mittens I have several pairs of mittens and fingerless gloves that I've knitted over the years, some I have designed, some experiments.  The ones I use every time I go out, though, are these.  I love this yarn, and I love that they are light.  Since they are stranded they are a bit warmer than just one layer would be.  Originally knit in 2013, I have worn a hole in the left thumb where I slide it down my camera strap, so I repaired them ea
