So I'm not much of a blogger - but I am a knitter and have produced lots, but I never get around to photographing them. But tonight, for your viewing pleasure, my hot-off-the-needles jacket.
Last year when I was raking leaves and enjoying all the reds, oranges, greens and brown, and the way the leaves all overlapped, I decided to design a sweater that had that spirit. Well this is it - it took a long time to find the right yarn (Silk Garden) and decide how to capture the spirit of the leaves at different angles and directions.

I thought I'd let you all see what the well-dressed penguin is wearing these days in Astralia. Here's a link to an article,
but although they certainly do look like fashionistas, the reason is very practical and sad. It is a way of helping their bodies cope with the traumas of oil spills.

Finally - the famous 3-sock pair. I'll bet you were beginning to wonder whether they exist. Notice I laid them out in sort of a spoke pattern. Speaking of patterns, there's something else to notice - the foot is a different yarn than the cuffs. That is a design feature. My DH stopped by my LYS and surprised me with some yarn from the sale bin. He didn't realize that the reason these yarns were in there were that they were orphans and that you needed 2 50 gr balls for a pair, not one. Hence the 2 yarn sock was developed. So I guess these are the 2 yarn 3 sock pair!
