3 balls completed/10 balls to go.
the colorway is a gold green with a darker brown green mixed in with a small amount of light blue.
what i can say is that is is fairly slow knitting- the mohair likes to tangle and because of the uneven nature of the fibers the stitches come out uneven.
but this is a blanket, and i cant wait to finish it!

i am working on gifts for the little people in my life. i can’t decide which style to go with and need some opinions. teddy #1 could be a bit goth? teddy #2 was stitched together with a machine while teddy #3 was finished off with a blanket stitch (like teddy #1) by hand with the exception being the stitching was done in the body color.
what a great time. there is even a panera near her- which, of course, we had to eat lunch there. this is us enjoying some music and drinks at a bar that really has to be remembered for it's huge beer bottle chandelier.
i am not sure all of these animals belong to her- but they are all a routine part of her feeding schedule.
these are my new texan friends...

the beautiful product of a fun day @ sparks back in april in boston. i had forgotten just how wonderful leigh's piece came out so i have to share.....
near the clasp she added tiny silver beads which are hard to see but very classy. it seems leigh works better under the influence than i do!

our pond is turning out to look a little more like the video game "frogger". it seems all of the sudden we have lots of floating perches for the variety of noisy frogs who inhabit our pond.
