Artful Beach Socks

These are more of Jim's Artful Experimental Socks. The verigated yarn at the top of the cuff is cotton and the color is called "life is a beach." Who could resist a yarn with that name? The verigated yellow is bamboo. I've discovered that bamboo is very good for socks. It feels good on the foot and it seems to wear well. The white portion is a silk alpaca blend.

Jim's Artful Socks

I've been working on some Artful Experiments lately. I've been making Artful Socks for Jim, and I'm playing with texture, color and various types of yarn. The varigated part of the sock is a cotton blend and the yarn is alternately smooth and fuzzy. The white toe is a silk alpaca blend. I love silk alpaca - it has the most wonderful silky soft feel.

Tropical Dreams

This is my latest quilt. It's not hanging properly because I was so excited I couldn't wait for Jim to make the quilt stick before hanging it.

New Work

Here's Jim in his Polynesian Wizard costume at the Las Cruces Renaissance Faire. Yes, I made the costume.

Latest Artful Sock

Here's my latest Artful Sock. The top is made from I'm not sure what. It's a combination of yarns, some fuzzy, some sparkly, some bucle, and I fell in love with it. The foot part is made from cotton bucle.
