Yarn and beads

That has been my week....taking things slowly as I recover from a whirlwind three weeks!

Today we stopped by to visit Birthday Boy Brendan in Poway and then on to Kit Carson Park where we haven't visited before now.  Crazy since it's amazing.  Here are some images from the Magical Circle at Queen Califia park.  The mosaics are the work of Niki Saint Phalle who is also the artist responsible for the dragon and goddess figures in front of the Mingei Museum in Balboa park.

It definitely has a Gaudi Park Guell feel to it.  I've been fortunate enough to have visited Barcelona multiple times, but it was nice to take such a fanciful outing close to home.




Pre and post outing was spent with beads and illustration, turning in directions for a collaboration project that I am participating in.  

And the late afternoon was spent on the last repeat for a baby blanket I've been working on.  It's a lace pattern and I'm tempted to cast on another and turn it into a rectangular shawl, but before that I have a pair of hand warmers out of Noro sock weight yarn, a scarf with Alchemy yarns and a baby dress to finish.  It turns out that Malayna is in the 110 th percentile for height and so I will be ripping back the bodice and adding 3 inches to the skirt before re knitting the bodice.  Oh and after that I've ordered some gorgeous hand dyed yarn to make my favorite sweater from knit swirl, a circular sweater pattern that I fell in love with.  It's only 500 and something stitches to start!

But before all that happens I'm off to celebrate the 29th anniversary of my first date with the love of my life.
