I was smitten with the leafy edge.
I'm using medium STR in 'Mossay' (stash yarn...just sayin'!).
A color quilt.
A stitching together of individual images that encompass one main color to create a montage of color...i.e. a pixel quilt.
I was severely limited by light, time, light, weather, did I mention light? Sticking to an autumn theme, I decided to revisit images I hadn't posted yet from the last few weeks or so. You can click on the image to make it larger. I wished I could've been out and about during daylight hours...as I found myself seeing images based on color, rather than subject.
Enough verbiage. Come join the fun! The next assignment is on Carolyn's blog! See you next Saturday!!
mmmm....looks like something's up in the kitchen!
It has been so bleak outside, we needed something warm and rejuvenating on the inside.
Brownies seemed like the perfect thing. I mean really...is there ever a bad time for freshly baked brownies?
I hope you all have a sweet weekend!!
Got your attention, didn't I!?
It's Anne's influence.
And aren't you glad?
Autumn burned brightly,
a running flame through the mountains,
a torch flung to the trees.
Max was helping me in the wool room. Help...distract...help...distract...you know how it goes!!
The socks, you ask? Ahhhh....aren't they gorgeous!? My mom made those many years ago. She is quite the knitter. She does beautiful needlepoint, too.
I think she made these for my dad. Every stitch is perfect.
Max was quite impressed (me, too!!).
It's been a busy week...but a good week, I think I'm caught up and can get back to regularly scheduled knitting and blogging biz!
We went to the Michael Jackson movie on Sunday evening. Oh my. If you have a chance to see it before it leaves the theaters, I'd highly recommend it. Phenomenal.
That's all I've got for now! Happy Tuesday!
What's better than a handknit scarf?
A scarf knit by a dear friend and received as a gift!
Mr. NK totally surprised me on my birthday by inviting Woolgirl and Woolboy to join us for dinner. Sadly, WB was out of town, but Jen joined in the surprise. And boy oh boy, was I surprised!!
Dear Readers, we literally shut down the restaurant...dear me, I have not done that...well, since in forever I imagine! :) We had a blast!!
That sweet Jen, she totally spoiled me rotten...this scarf (just one of her many splendid gifts) was outstandingly special...just like its maker.
Thank you Jen!! Heart you!! :)
The greatest gift is a portion of thyself.

Winter Birch by Pigeon Roof Studios ala the Woolgirl Sock Club!
This was my favorite club skein this year! I love it. It shouts winter.
And in the very next breath it offers up wooly goodness to keep you toasty warm.
In seed time learn,
in harvest teach,
in winter enjoy.
The first Hayrick sock is finished! I heart it! The second sock is underway.
It has been a full week here and we're looking forward to the weekend. No big plans...just a little knitting and staying out of the rain.
What about you?
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Hmmmm....could there be some cooking in my future??
First up is the Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey Dessert cookbook (a wonderful Bday gift from Jen!). Oh yum. And the photography...double yum. If you don't have a sweet tooth prior to looking through this book, you will afterwards!
while we're talking food....
a little 'Candy Corn' (another awesome gift from WG) to sweeten the yarn basket!
It's November and it's getting cold outside. Really cold.
Frosty cold. Brrr.
Not to worry, we're keeping comfy warm here at Chez NK!
Moroccan Chickpea Stew. Yum.
