Crafty, but not Knitty!
Today Devon and I visited The Wake Up the Earth in Jamaica Plain, my neighborhood. There were local businesses, food vendors, local crafters/artists, musicians, dancers-- a regular three-ring hippy circus. I usually love the jewelry that I see at this festival but not much caught my eye that I didn't think to myself "I can make that!" This is what I bought....couldn't help myself:I have no idea what I will do with them but for some reason I just couldn't resist these little knitted guys.

As usual, I'm still chugging along a few rows at a time on my Rusted Root. I'm seriously ready to be finished and wearing the FO. I also want to CO for this: The Lotus Tank! My memory has failed me yet again...I thought that that the pattern sample was in a cream color but this picture proves my mind wrong. Anyways, I'm still making my version in a neutral cream color. I make actually modify this pattern a bit. I'm thinking about doing a different stitch pattern on the bodice. I don't know how I feel about the one in the pattern and I'll definitely be knitting it to hip length. Well, soon enough.

I've been wanting to make that in some baby pink bamboo I have. We'll see, though.

Thanks for a lovely Saturday afternoon. Hope you trip was a safe one and that although it was under sad circumstances that it was a nice visit.
