The holidays have past and yet the fiber still flies across our fingers in the first month of the new year.

The newest member of the Deming Library craft family is Greta. She is incredibly smart and accomplished. She juggles an amazing schedule and yet she still makes time to join the group and brightens the Wednesday night conversations. The doll she knits is growing every week and will be a work of art when finished.
Yes, that is a prescription pill bottle in the foreground. I remove the labels and recycle them to organize my yarn sewing needles, stitch markers, buttons, etc. The clear plastic makes it easy to identify the contents and the child proof lids help keep my grandchildren from swallowing small crafting tools.
Louise models her new mittens. They are made of Lion Brand Fisherman's wool, knitted flat with a sewn seam. The original pattern finished the finger tip end with a sharp point that Louise was not pleased with so she adjusted it with Kitchener's weave for a more rounded end.

It's football season! GO SEAHAWKS and please forgive me for knitting these booties for the newly arrived baby in a (I hate to utter) Chicago Bears fan household. Consider this as my contribution to the De Feet of Bears. It was fun to use my old Annie's Attic crochet patterns of the Feet Boutique series They are very accurate and diverse patterns of many shoe styles from Cowboy boots to Mary Janes. The instructions include sizes from newborn to adult so that an entire family can wear matching foot wear.
Time to go knit and watch the game now.
Have fun, will ravel.
