July, 2011


Oh, beautiful July.  Everything is so alive, and flowers are everywhere here in Victoria.  This is a picture of Mike and Lily in Beacon Hill Park.  It is such a beautiful place to take a walk, and literally stop and smell the flowers!

What could be better than coming home at the end of the day and sitting on the patio with your pooch.  Mike and Lil are taking some time to relax and enjoy the sun.

This cowl was knit with Art Yarn's Cashmere Ensemble Glitter Yarn.  I think this is the softest yarn, and so beautiful to knit with.  The pattern is "Autumn Leaves Cowl" by Deb Mulder and you can find it at: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/deb-mulder-designs

These slippers are made with Shibui Knit's Sock yarn in the color Midnight.  The pattern is from their book "Shibui Socks".  These are knit from the toe up with a lace pattern on top of the toes.  

Our new Crewelwork kits have finally arrived.  Everything except a hoop is included in these little kits (approx. 5X7). 

"Falling Leaves" 

"Swirly Tree"

"Snowy Pine"

This Sheep Yarn Bowl is incredible.  Made of ceramic, and shaped just right so your yarn stays in the bowl instead of rolling across your floor.

To August 2011
