Making - my faorite thing!

 I love to make things, simple as that. I'm a maker, like my mother before me. Now that the weather is cooler, I've started to knit again.

I love yarn, as my mother before me. The yarn shop with it's shelves full of colors and textures is so comfortable, and exciting.

And I sold a number of my mitts at the holiday craft pop-up shop this December, which is satisfying.  Now, I've added a few pairs to my Etsy shop.

 I used Noro Japanese yarn for the mitts in the first photo.

The bright red mitts are made using yarn from Michigan.

And the gray and green striped ones are yarn from Peru.
 Now that I know how to carry yarn when changing colors to make stripes, I want to keep doing them. I'm going to make some mixed color mitts next. Might turn out good, might not, we shall see.

Speaking of seeing, you can see my mitts as they are in the shop HERE.
Here's another of my honey's Evidence Box postcards altered by Me with only one addition - a bronze woman.
Here's the quote on the reverse - "A mind at peace, a mind centered, and not focused on harming others, is stronger than any physical force in the universe." Wayne Dyer

This card is for day #155 of my 365.2 project.
This card is another in the Tiny Town series. Day #5 of 365.3

On the reverse - For Tiny town residents, the raven was, usually, the harbinger of good, not bad, news.

Am I having fun making stuff? You bet!

You never cease to amaze me Mim! Love that these are fingerless. You hip woman you! They are wool? I can't wear wool. You can tell you are having fun my friend, you really can. Hugs for you and Chuck! Tell him I miss seeing his urban fragments.

HI MIM! I could use some colorful mitts. I checked out your store, but could not find one, when you create some next time with orange, yellow, blue, green or something in warm yellow, orange, red, let me know! Smiles to you, Anke :)))))

Thanks, Margie & Anke. I'll encourage Chuck to add to his blog. And I'll look for yarn in the colors you like, Anke.
