My Talented Family

I just wanted to share a few things that my daughter and my sister made.  My daughter, Nora, barely started knitting and already she can read a complex pattern.  She spent two hours sticking blocking wires into that scarf.  She's so smart.  My sister, Rebecca, is a bookbinding whiz, and even teaches book arts at Otis (not to brag or anything).  Her books and her color sense blow my mind.  
I also knitted some socks, and I've been working on a set of baby cardigans for some twin boys that are still, you know, safely tucked inside their mother.  I was inspired by Yarn Harlot's baby knitting rampage. I'll post them when they're done.  
Summer is officially over and I will begin teaching for real on Monday.  Art teachers need to have lots of meetings and force themselves on baffled schools who have no idea how they're going schedule all the itinerant educators.  An embarrassment of riches, if you ask me.

  1. Those journals are great! But then, I have a weakness for all things handbound. Isn't it fun to live in the midst of creative people?
