Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

WIP Wednesday

Just a few pictures of what I've been working on this week...


Hagrid's Motorcycle Socks...
a mystery kal

more details here













Blackwork

Just a sample of blackwork for a class I'll be teaching for the local Embroidery Guild Association

(I'm almost done with the bookmark)













Another knitted square.

Yes, in black.  Yes, it can be hard to see the stitches. (especially for a pattern I have not done before)

It will be easier once I've done a few more rows and memorized the pattern. (I think)

Hey Susan,
I love Hagrid! In fact, I have a toy Hagrid sitting by my computer watching over me right now ;-). I think I must make these socks.
Love the pretty embroidery too. Have you seen Alicia Paulson's new embroidery book? I love the homey look of her work. Oh, and here's some amazingly lovely embroidery from Susan Cowie http://www.susiecowie.com/index.html
She did some of the needlework in "Bright Star".
Sorry I didn't get a chance to vote for your socks -- was out of town.
Blessings,
G
