A View from Sierra County

Small town life and politics, lots of knitting, and travels with and without my five burros

I blog about rural living and social issues, and the creativity that comes from knitting, as well as post random pictures of the Sierras and my burros. "In order to be an artist, one must be deeply rooted in the society" - Simone de Beauvoir

Update on WIPs

I have finished another Red Hat Society purse, just needing to sew up the bottom and throw in the washer to felt. I am ready to start on the order for a turquoise purse next. I am also planning to finish my second blue denim clog this week so that I can felt a few things at one time on Saturday.

I really love the Irish Hiking Scarf design, but have not had a chance to work on it much in the past week or so. Luckily, I have a meeting to attend this afternoon, where I will be able to add a few more inches to it... it stands at 33 inches of a 55 inch long project, so there is still a ways to go.

I haven't really gotten to any of the cool sale yarns I picked up last weekend, but that will come with time... I did get that really nice hat for my son completed. The weather has been unpredictable around here, so my daughter hasn't started clamoring for her top yet, but I do want to sit down and swatch it soon, so I will have an idea how many changes I am looking at to make my chosen yarn work.

I stopped in a Ben Franklin yesterday to pick up supplies for a few more pairs of fur-trimmed flip flops for the crafts coop store, and got a few of my high school computer students started on building a blog for the coop, so you will soon be able to find us online. The only other yarn I am allowed to purchase in the next few weeks is the rest of the wool I need to make my husband a pair of felted clogs.

No pictures today; it is grey and threatening to produce thundershowers this afternoon. There are wonderful blossoms everywhere as a result of all this wet weather, so I want to wish everyone a Happy Spring.
