Pretty colors

It's seems I am starting to knit more and more and sew less and less. But this weekend, I was lucky enough to do a little of both. I'm still stumbling my way through the ins and outs of knitting but I have discovered that I like really bulky yarn the best and the more colorful, the better. Sitting on the front porch at the cabin, I was drawn to the wonderful colors in my lap.

Pretty. Don't you think? This ended up being a scarf which is the only thing I know how to make. Next time I drag Ms. Human Female Torso out for a photo shoot, I will take some shots of the final product. Now, if only winter would get here since this scarf is made of 100% wool....

I also took up making bowls out of fabric wrapped clothesline. I have made several in the past and really enjoyed it so thought I would try it again.
