Google Homepage, Anyone?

I decided to change my theme (boring, classic) and looked for a knitting theme--there warn't none. I couldn't believe it--tch tch. So I made one and have registered it for general use. Check it out! Google themes, search box, type "knitting" or "keramoso" and switch to it . . . or make your own. It took me less than two minutes. 8^)

I finished the Cadenza scarf and sewed some buttons on it for extra embellishments, and gave it as a ridiculously belated Christmas present to my friend/masseuse Aleia.
I also made a version of Thermis and am foregoing buttons in favor of a dickie look, with the "vent" on the bottom for easy donning.

I am 3/4 done with Bonnie and Clyde after frogging the Bonnie section three times to get the right needle size for a close width match--the Clyde doesn't tighten up in ribbing the way Bonnie does, so I finally settled on #11's. It will be a bit thinner, but I think it will look great, once wound around a neck.

Last weekend, DH wore his Malabrigo hat, that I'd knitted for him last year, on a snow camping trip to Lake Tahoe, came home and threw all his stuff in the washer. When I went to remove items from the dryer after he went off and got distracted doing other things, I found the hat totally felted and about half its size. Um, DH? Well, I stretched it out and am hoping he can still pull it on over his head, as it is now so thick that he'll never feel the chill on his sensitive ears. ;^)

Off to run errands prior to my departure for beautiful Denver, Colorado, where I'm attending a conference and hoping it won't be too cold or too dry. With the little bit of free time I will have, I hope to visit The Tattered Cover, the CELL exhibit, and perhaps Crybaby Ranch. Fun, fun! And yes, I'm taking along my knitting. Do you think I'm crazy? All that sitting time in workshops without my knitting?

Here's a hummer picture from yesterday. They were happily sipping all day long.

Oh no! Felting not on purpose has made me cry more than once! I hope it will still fit.
