I've been fiddling around with this turtle. I feel compelled to make the turtle cloth green for some reason. I have another one in darker green which I still need to take a photo of.
I seem to be stuck on green. I have so much green yarn of various shades, but I'm sure that under the right lighting I can take pictures of them all and make them look like the exact same shade, lol.
Ok, enough with the new. How about some old stuff? The following are some odds and ends I completed in 2006 but never got around to posting pics of. Better late than never, huh?
Here's an Oak Leaf cloth. It will go with a Maple Leaf cloth I've been trying to finish forever. These knit/purl cloths sometimes take me longer to work.
Here's a cat cloth, one of the dishcloth knitalongs. Of course I did it long after the KAL happened. Always trying to catch up...
This is the same yarn as the lacy round below, Jewels. This picture shows the colors better. I think it's because I might have taken this photo in the daytime. I started this in Sept, and finished it in Dec. I'm not very good at working these short row type patterns. Lack of concentration to get very far. It is because of this that I know I would never start Lady Eleanor, which I see a lot of people working on these days ... Bets, Joan, Lisa, Trish, just to name a few.
This is P&C Shaded Pastels. I was on a roll and made a lot of these lacy round cloths. I also did one in an orangy variegated yarn, but must have given it away before I could take a pic of it. I've got the pattern memorized now, lol. I still hate seaming though...
This picture doesn't really show the vivid colors of the cloth. It's S&C Jewel Ombre.
This is a Paw Cloth for Vicki, done in S&C Cornflower blue color. I completed this in Sept 2006.
This is a Flower Cloth for my mother-in-law. It's also in the same S&C Hot Purple color as the cat below, but who would have guessed it while looking at these two photos! For some reason the Flower Cloth in this picture looks more blue. Yeah, I still need to learn how to take photos. This cloth was completed in Sept 2006.
I knitted this Cat cloth for Vicki who has 4 little kitties (ok, they're not that little anymore). The color is S&C Hot Purple, which is a lot brighter than in the picture above. Also completed in Sept 2006.
SK a écrit: What is Yamamotoyama green tea? Japanese tea with some burn rice inside?
Yamamotoyama is the brand of teas which come in many flavors (Green tea, green w/roasted brown rice, roasted green, jasmine, oolong). Clicking on the link will take you to their webpage where you can see a picture of their packaging. You may have seen these boxes at your local supermarket or Asian market. Their teas are available loose and in tea bags. I also know you can get some of their teas from Stash. Your best bet would be to go to an Asian supermarket like Ranch 99. I've also seen their teas at American supermarkets (if not in the tea aisle, then in the Asian/Ethnic aisle) however this might be due to living in the San Francisco Bay Area, so YMMV. Although they make loose tea, I tend to get their tea bags. YMY is my "lazy" tea, when I don't feel like brewing a pot of tea. In fact, I am drinking some right now! :-)
M can sign for medicine, and she tries to say the word too. I hope she doesn't think it is part of the regular nighttime routine.
