I am sometimes completely amazed at people's creativity!

On Friday at Knit'n'Cafe, Renate showed us her capelet, made entirely from handspun (hers and others') and with her own pattern ...

Esther is making 'slouchy' hats, making up her own patterns now, and including bobbles:

And, while we were there, knitting, this woman walked in ... we were like vultures, grabbing her and getting her to sit down with us, and tell us about this jacket:

It was WET FELTED in its entirety, if you please!

And on the weekend, I observed a completely different kind of creativity...

There's two things I keep forgetting to write about. One is that my daughter Hailey is in LONDON, ENGLAND right now, all expenses paid and on a daily not-too-shabby retainer! She is a professional organizer , and has a client who needed serious help moving out of her home there. She flew out on Saturday, and will be gone for 10 days!

I'll tell you the other thing tomorrow. :-)

I agree, that blue felted jacket is stunning, and the cape handknit from handspun wool is lovely.
The sunset is also smashing. Does it often look like this where you live?

Good luck to your daughter in London, it's a long way from Canada.

The knits are gorgeous! I just love the blue wet-felted jacket.

I've been following your blog for ages now but don't think I've ever commented but had to today to say what a small world it is.... the Dr. Seuss painting in the background was done by a friend of mine! (Naomi in Comox:

I love it when worlds collide! ;-)
