I am in awe of people who think outside the knitting box. They develop a new technique, write a clever pattern or decorate the urban landscape.
Consider this case in point. I park near this pole on a regular basis and always admire it. The other day I got my act together and finally took pictures of this structure clad in knitting.
It is a colorful, fun work of art that adds so much to this corner. While I couldn't get a close up of the fish at the top, there were other things in my range.
These creatures are adorable, and I'm sure many kids have wanted to take them home. I wanted to take them home.
And this work of art is signed. Good job, South End Knitters. You should be proud of your cleverness and creativity.
Last night I was obsessed with starting a new project - it was my reward for a long day of work. I decided that I wasn't going to bed until I had started something, anything.
I picked Harmonia's Rings from my queue and proceeded to get started. It was midnight, but I was bound and determined to have something new on the needles.
Casting on involved watching a YouTube video of Cat Bordhi demonstrating the Moebius Cast On. This method is totally outside the box. I watched the video a couple of times and ripped out my first attempt. Yes, it was late and my eyes were glazed, but I was on a mission.
I don't think I completely understand why it works, but sometimes knitting is just a matter of believing and doing. When all was said and done, this is what I had to show for my midnight knitting session. While it doesn't look like much, I went to bed feeling very satisfied with my accomplishment.
And this is what greeted me when I got home today.
A delivery from the Land of Enchantment - New Mexico green chile. It wouldn't be fall without roasting green chile.
Thanks to everyone who commented on the last post. I've enjoyed reading the comments and added a couple more projects to my queue. There's still time to leave a comment and enter the contest which closes on Sunday.
