Toaday's Fashion Show

Here is the ever so stylish Wonda (Worts girlfriend) wearing her new hat. I tried snakeskin, but it scared her to death, so I went with a natural fiber: Wool. As you can see, she looks gorgeous from any angle! Wort seems to admire her long legs.

Please note: I did not capture Wort and Wonda to model my new collection of toad fashions. They are both wild amphibians that willingly visit to get at the mosquitos and have their images taken.

Needle Goodness

I just had to show off the needle case I made for my friend Kim. She provided the groovy fabric and let me have creative liberty over the design of the case. I'm pretty proud of how it turned out:) It will hold several sets of circs and dps and folds up into a neat little compartment. I'm so happy with how it turned out, I think I will have to make one for myself!

Traveling Gnome

This is Steve the gnome. He was a birthday gift from my friend Catherine. Recently Steve went on an adventure to Williamsburg Va. He enjoyed the historic homes and even made a few new friends. I will post more of Steves adventures in the future

A little piece of spring

I have more squatters that live under my deck: it is a family of robins. Today I discovered the babies! There are three voracious baby robins. I will hopefully get more pics of their growth to share with you all.

Toaday's Events

Here is a picture of our summer squatter: Wort the Toad. He lives in the drain pipe. He pays no rent and he e
ats our bugs for free. Wort may have a panhandling license, but I'm not sure. Wort has a girl toad that shacks up with him for the summer, but she has not appeared yet. Wort is a stud toad (I'm just going on rumors). Enjoy Wort. Love the Wort.

Warning: Wort may cause warts. I hope to knit Wort some clothes before winter hits so he may take them back to his winter drain pipe (where ever that might be) Check back soon to see Wort modeling his winter collection.

So I started this blog ...

I was compelled by peer pressure. Well, maybe not MY peers, but does it really matter? I thought I would start out by showing off some of my handiwork. My model is Watson. He is wearing a pair of socks made out of Knit Picks simple stripes in Sweet Tarts. Socks are one of my favorite things to make. Socks are not one of his favorite things to wear. But he is the oldest and slowest of our four dogs, and therefore the most easily caught. You probably will see more of him, but less of him smiling.
