What we did last week

Posted on Apr 27, 2009. 16 comments

Last week held a welcome(and adorable) respite from thesis-ing. We had a visit with (Sadly Blogless) Jennifer and her adorable 12 month old Sarah.
Jennifer brought her travel wheel so there was much spinning. This is my favorite hand spun so far, Abstract Fibers in the Asia colorway. Truly a delight to spin and well worth the money.
The baby cuddling last week spurned spontaneous toddler cuddling as well as a few other unmentionable incidents. At this point I'll take the snuggles however I can get them. Please note the photo jitter was caused by one of the 3 Earthquakes during Jennifer's visit. Well maybe not really but it sounds good.
I've been practicing my photography, specifically to work on my bokeh skills.
Finally last week gave me some much needed knitting time, this scarf by special request. Lene put out a call for a braille scarf and I was happy to offer my services for someone in need. Each of the scarf has one word, Never Alone. I hope the person who receives the scarf is wrapped in those words.
What did you do last week?

    Love that braille scarf and how you figured out how to put the braille on there.

    Wow – the scarf is GORGEOUS! Great colour, the design looks lovely and… just wow.
    p.s. I’m obsessed with bokeh, too.

    Lene sent me over to scarf-gush, and I do, willingly. Beautiful!
    Lovely baby photos, too. You may want to avoid posting cute toddler photos along with gush-worthy knitting in case the cuties distract/detract from your fiber glory!

    @Joelle it is two words, I just worded it awkwardly. One side says Never and the other side says Alone.

    Saw two of my kids graduate from college and one playing the Mormon Tabernacle Organ! (I’ll be bragging for life on that one.)
