Since my last post on the ruana, I thought I would finish that weekend, well that didn't happen. Instead we met with the realtor and started moving some things that the realtor thought were "too personal to show at open house" that meant most of my craft items. Since my looms, yarns, and fiber fun stuff is "too personal" I move all of it including lots of boxes, family pictures to my office, we have more room than we have office personnel to fill it and my boss was nice enough to let me have an office to put up my storage. I had one of the guys put up my loom in the lunch room and now instead of knitting on my board, I'm weaving on my loom. At my current pace I "will" be done with the first panel by Friday and hopefully taken off the loom by Monday or Tuesday, I get 45 mins of uninterrupted weaving time which is bliss, apart from the various questions from my co-workers although I have fun explaining what I'm doing and what I'm creating.

Pattern Section

I've reworked the pattern section and added a few more patterns. Please note that I didn't seperate the KK patterns from the board patterns so take a look before you print and make sure you have the right loom, board etc. to accomplish the pattern. If anyone needs any help with any of these please drop me an e-mail and I'll be happy to explain.

I've updated the pattern section with these two new items the summer purse and the woven bottom summer bag. The summer purse was done on my fine gauge knitting board and the woven bottom was done on the the green KK. I hope you all enjoy the patterns and the purses.

I got a new camera a Canon Power Shot A560 and am learning to use it. I was a photography minor in college, you think I could pick up a digital camera and take great pics NOT, these things have gotten complicated, I long for my Nikon SLR 35mm. whaaaa!! I bought the camera right before the kids' graduations, read enough to set it up and take some pics, not all the pics I would have taken with the 35mm because there is always a delay with a digital that I don't have with a film camera, so I missed a few pics I would have liked to have, but I'll get better ( I hope).

The next pics are an update to the baby blanket I've been working on. I have the first panel completed and I started on the new panel. I took a close up, somewhat blurry, I guess I need to play with the ISO, the other pics were on auto.

I also ordered and got the little flower loom and the double sided corder from Knifty Knitters **happy dance** now I can make baby booties to go with the burp bib, hat and blanket. OMG, I need to really start concentrating on these since the baby is due late August.

The last Graduate and Translations

As promised here's a pic of my youngest at graduation!! That's it we're done, and off to college they go whew!!! I'm so proud of them.
I have had some personal email's on translating my patterns, instructions from the yahoo group, to which, I have agreed to allow translations in any language the end user needs. I have also been asked if the translations can be used in groups like yahoo in other countries, that too is fine with me. I just ask that everyone refer back to the blog as it's original source and because I update often. Please enjoy the patterns, blog and groups after all this is the reason most of the blogs and groups exist to help, teach and share.
