Woolens and Woodens

One large skein of gorgeous wool yielded me four wonderful hats. I sent these out to my lovely housemates back in California (and one in St. Louis) for the winter holiday festivus celebration. Matchy match!



I actually ran out of yarn at the very end and the last pompon hat had to be finished with a different lovely yarn in moss green.



I also went out to an art opening last night at Space 1026 (obsessed much?) called New Ancient Structures. That's me, next to the goofball in the blue hat. The wooden sculptures by AJ Fosik were amazing and intricate, using a folk art style and forcing us to confront the animal violence in ourselves. And the colors were pretty.

I really love these. That yarn is beautiful.

You all are looking very city fashionable at that opening! Nothing like our brightly colored ensembles walking around Davis second Saturday!

Also, beautiful hats--you are quite the knit-smith!
