My other love

20120517-142336.jpg

This is one of my other loves. I occasionally make buttons for my knitting. Or use random beads for stitch markers. I love when I have a sock stitch marker for a sock, mitten for a mitten.

I took up knitting in part because I wanted to learn a new skill and my trusty bobcat isn’t very portable.  So for me the two are quite intertwined.

Today I was inspired by some of the Cascade Pema Tencel I have been using for baby wash cloths.  I’ve been looking for some patterns I had.  Basics but with a few design touches.  But I simply can’t find them.  😦  So I wandered to my torch.

I’d love to knit out in my studio.  I enjoy the peace and quiet out there.  But somehow the idea of all that glass and my yarn just don’t mix.  😉

Now I am inside to make lunch and then knit.  Life is good.

Little things bring me joy. Hope you have joy in your life today.  🙂

    This is educational- I had no idea that you did glass making. I’m not allowed near matches in my house and am in awe of someone who uses fire for good.

      Best stay away from the matches then. 😉

      My lampworking is an extension of an early desire to do furnace glass like the big boys. I started that journey in the 70s with stained glass lessons. Now furnace glass and large glass work (plates, wine glasses, etc) is done as a hobby, but not by me.

      We built a barn and I have a lovely corner. It is being over run a bit by things of my childhood and things left behind by college kids. But, my bench stays free of things not glass for obvious reasons.

      I used to have a glass website that had a few tutorials but I decided to use that money in other ways. Maybe I’ll post some finished beads.
