Russian tortoise

This is the little Russian tortoise I've been watching this weekend. He now belongs to my son's preschool room, but I'll be taking him home on weekends, holidays, or whenever they need me to take him. I've grown attached to him after just a few days together. In the photo, he's snoozing in my backyard. :))))

Wonderwool cable set

This is a hat, scarf, and mitten set I just finished for my mom. The hat was done using the pattern coronet, and I used the same cable to do both the scarf (my design) and the mittens (modified from LB's 2-needle mittens). I used Wonderwool tweed.

Tile mosaic

This is a tile mosaic I'm doing for the entryway wall in my house. I'll post more photos when it's completed and on the wall.

Yarn crazy cat

This is about the zillionth time I've wanted to skin my younger male, Ozzy alive. He adores my knitting and any time I leave it anywhere in the open, I come home to find it here, there, everywhere! This time it was wrapped around the vacuum. Later that day, I found it in 2 pieces, with the working yarn broken from the scarf in progress! I just about wanted to kill him! Good thing he's so cute! That's him in the above photo (black cat).

Rogue is finished!

Woohoo! It's done! It has a few mistakes in it, but nobody else can see them but me, and I'm getting used to them. I've already worn it several times, even though northern California is getting warm!
