Joyknits 2011 in Review – Pt. 2



Steamy … in the extreme here! Temperatures in the upper 90’s sure make staying inside to knit all the more appealing.

One of the last pieces of the construction – nice to have storage by the washer!


Catching up … or at least trying to! It was great to see everyone, and lots of great ideas were flying around at Knitting Camp.

Knitting Camp: Meg Swansen.

I couldn’t pick just 1 photo this month 😉

Lace Cardi & Cowl: VK Fall 2011 :^)


One of my travel souvenirs this summer was a Crazy Zauberball (Schoppel Woole; 75% wool/25% nylon in sock weight – German color name is Indisch Rosa, which I think is Indian pink) and it eventually suggested that it wanted to be a scarf/shawl.

New cat perch.


There was some frost in the area over the weekend. Since our tomatoes got a late start, and currently have quite a few nice green ones, I wanted to try to save them.


I’ve been working on patterns, and finally got this beaded bag ready to put up at Patternfish.



The day after Thanksgiving … … and we were still eating, so after doing a little bit of decorating, we took off for the Park and some fresh air.

New ornament.

This says it pretty well—overall a good year, even though there have been some bumps along the way.

  1. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. You packed a lot into one year, didn’t you? Hugs, Sweetie. And, I’ve still got that cardi queued;-D

  2. That cardi and cowl are prettier every time I see them!

  3. Garden produce, oh how we miss you!
    Your sweater is so beautiful. 2011 was an interesting year. Here’s to a New Year of joy and love!
