Random projects

No tale to share here today - I just thought you'd like to see some of Maria's non toy projects.

Monster mitts...

Gorgeous shawlette...

Mushroom mitts...(if you must know, that is my elegant hand modeling ;))

A gorgeous lacy shawl....

An argyle scarf...

Another beautiful shawl (she was going through a phase ;))

Gorgeous gloves...

And just for fun, an old project/photo I dug up...

Knitters are crazy, what can I say? :)

...and their yarn.

Meet Mortimer.

He is Maria's pet knitted toy.

He guards her precious stash of malabrigo, a kettle dyed 100% special wool blend that Mortimer tells me knitters love.

 He also says Maria likes to hoard her precious malabrigo.

And that other knitters are very jealous of her vast malabrigo stash.

When Maria's not looking, Mortimer likes to participate in all kinds of activities, like swimming...

And climbing.

He also likes to strike poses...he thinks he's a movie star.

He's really quite convincing...

Don't you think?

Gilbert Keith

I did not take these pics - I taught Maria how to take them, and she's got a knack for it, as you can see (now all she needs to figure out is the photo editing process ;)
I thought you'd still like to see this hilarious character though, so here he is, Gilbert Keith the English Monster

Hmm - what, guests?! Oh, {ahem}, why hullo there!

I am Gilbert Kieth,the English Monster

And who may YOU be?

Oh dear me, there are my outlandish American monster cousins getting themselves into trouble again {sigh}...I suppose I must be off - tata!

The Case of the Orange Monster




If you want, you can find all the pictures HERE (along with the original, unedited photos), with my subtitles - keep in mind I'm not much of a storyteller, I just love to take pictures.
Thank you so much.
