some knitting photos

Most of this was done while I was mostly immobile after surgery..

A baby blanket in shades of blue, in front of the polka-dot quilt my mom and I made in March.

The "Raha Scarf" from Knitted Lace of Estonia. Apparently, the raha (the book said it meant money) pattern is the oldest..or one of the oldest...lace patterns from that region of Europe. I love lace. This one went to my sister for her birthday.

Made this tomato hat for my long-time friend from 3rd grade who just had a baby.

And some non-knitting: embroidered sachets filled with dried lavender for friends and family. My mom brought the embroidery patterns when she came to visit and keep house . Thanks mom :)
