AND then, inside the box is a new ruffled scarf that I am knitting - it's about half way done. The yarn is Araucania Itata Solid ( it is hand painted a pale moss green and has hits of pinks and reds through it) and the yarn is 70% wool, 15% silk, and 15% bamboo. It is a fingering weight and I am knitting with US no 2 Bryspun flexible needles (fantastic needles made in New Zealand). What a joy to knit and to watch the ruffles curl and spin as it grows.
What are you creating today?

this is quite a departure from most of my work but I began to paint an abstract one morning and as I worked on it, I began to see the water, sand, and rocks of a beach that I knew in the Bahamas - it's amazing how the paint knows where it needs to go - you as the painter are just the instrument through the paint gets onto the paper. Pure joy!
The painting is titled Bookie's Beach (a beach in the Abacos).
Thanks for looking,
