Entrelac and one Weird Flower

After knitting the Lady Eleanor Shawl from Scarf Style I came up with a smaller scarf pattern that I could teach at my LYS. Here's my sample knit in a Japanese Yarn that I can't find the label for right this second. Write if you really need to know the name.

Here's a close up

I really enjoyed teaching this class. Here's one of my student's scarf (9/25/06 entry). She spun her own long run color yarn which was so pretty before she even started to knit; you need to go see what it looks like knit into this pattern.

Several months ago Nancy in my spinning class gave me two Stapelia plants. The large flower one bloomed today. This is the strangest flower I've ever seen!
There's another bloom that looks like it will open tomorrow. You can't see in the picture but all those purply lines are really lines of long purple hairs. And the thing attracts flys to it's center. Definately the weirdest flower I've ever grown!

My shot of this evening's sunset; it was gorgeous tonight!
I took ten pictures, it just kept getting better and better.

And to close let me introduce you to my Siamese, Tibor Gergley (Ty to those that know him.) One of my three boys - the cat brothers.

September Dishcloth KALs

My Sept Monthly Dishcloth KAL that turned out to be an Oak Leaf done in Peaches and Creme.

The Sept. Mid-Month Dishcloth Kal in Peaches and Creme. I really liked this lace pattern; it will some day, show up again in a shawl or scarf.

The way this KAL works is that on the 1st and 16th of each month a mystery dishcloth pattern is emailed to the Yahoo List, about 10 rows a day. Each morning it's so much fun to see the design emerge.

The beginning...

where I go on and on about Knitting, Quilting, Pets and anything else that seems comment worthy at the moment.
