florentine memory

What started out as an attempt to remember a sweater in a store window ended up a multilayered photo collage of the photgrapher (me), cars driving by, ghostly tourists and, underneath it all, the afore mentioned sweater. I’m liking it as “ahht”. All I did was point and click.

seen nowhere else

We had fun making audio slide shows this season. Margery and I learned a lot from our first attempts six months ago.  I think the new shows are way cooler than the ones we recorded last season. We gab about one book at a time and try give more inside information. To our delight, our audiovisual guy has artfully employed the Ken Burns effect and I am most excited to be able to show loads of photos that can’t be seen anywhere else – not in the books, not on the web site. If you missed the slideshows in our weekly newsletter “Knitbits”, you’ll find a multimedia link on our homepage:

Check out the Peruvia slide show to see more shots of Prospera.

We have just returned from Italy (we were looking at new yarns) and some of our friends there were mimicking us: “Hi Norah”,”Hi Margery”. If you’ve listened, you know what I mean:) LOL

Something keeps nagging at me. My sketch for Prospera still doesn’t seem quite right to me.  Again it’s too fussy – maybe in a fine yarn it would be right but I am committed to Peruvia. The moss st has to go.  I think st st is better. The detailed circular motif and the the feather and fan are so …are so…so…ah man, that’s it! Feather and fan,  why not use the feather and fan stitch again?

This seems to be working:


Ok – this sketch is doing it for me, finally:

That’s it:)
