Here is the xmas box I sent to my mom and dad.
Dad received a ribbed scarf made from a super-cool handspun that Kristin gave me more than 2 years ago. Every single stitch was fun to do!
I made a beaded, teal, silk beauty for mama:
I enclosed this box of candy because it was the prettiest box of licorice I’d ever seen! Plus, it matched.
Holy Cow!! I’m knitting lace! I’ve been attempting lace for years, but am just now experiencing success.
Mosca and Weasel
This is how we get our laundry to the laundromat around the corner. Yes, we wear our helmets.
The incredibly cool Island Bike Shop loaned us this balance bike for a week for the Boogedy to try out. He’s getting better, after biffing it a few times.
The coolest Key West rooster I’ve ever seen. The main post office seems to host the prettiest breeds.
Some giant (18-30-inch-tall) colored glass bottles at ROSS. I wish the purple one would withstand the 3000 mile shipment to my sister in Salt Lake.

A student at my school made a really cool scratchboard in art class.
It’s approximately 8 by 10 inches. Here’s a close-up of the peacock’s face:
I loved it immediately and offered a barter! I knit her this scarf in order to trade. Here is Madison modeling. Her hair is orange now, but I swear it has been every color in that scarf this school year!
The chunky yarn is Ironstone Fun, and the skinny stuff is Shibui Silk Cloud that I got at a new local shop Blazing Needles.
Look at the little snowflake!!
Hooray for barter! I’m thrilled to hang this fancy peacock on my wall!
