  • I like your new scarf (and the old one). It makes me almost sad that I gave away my skein of Sea Silk! It would be wonderful for one of these patterns.

  • If Kay is the one-woman spokeswoman for denim yarn then Ann you appear to be the advocate for Handmaiden! Lovely lovely scarves – quit knitting so FAST!

  • Wonderful scarves. I have to say, though, that the felted turkey is just creepy!

  • The felted pie looks real. . .

  • two lovely scarves – LOVE the close-up of the first one! – and two pies that look far tastier than any pie I’ve ever served. Having just felted my first hat, I am increasingly charmed by all things felted.
    Glad you had such a splendid time on your roadtrip 🙂

  • This is the best description I’ve read in a while:
    Great Big Sea (50% silk/30% merino/20% seacell/100% addictive)

  • I love the stuff that spins film series.

  • Oh that is is SO pretty!!

  • Both scarves are to die for! Makes me want to pick up where I left off with my Ribbon Lace scarf. Meanwhile, the felted food is kinda creepy – mostly because of the hyper-realistic nature of it. It is actually very well done.

  • Oooo la la…love those scarves! But the felted Thanksgiving meal….what kind of mind comes up with an idea like that!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ann, you have just triggered a major breakthrough in my internal life: I like your scarves far more than the (non-felted) pancake. My knitting obsession has just triumphed over my obsession for food!

  • i love the texture of the great big sea :: at least in the photo:: pebb-ly, algue-y, comforting. (oh, i wish i was at the beach again!!) xoxo k

  • Oh, the Franz bread sign! When I was a kid, we’d yell “smell the bread!” and roll down the windows. Now I do that to my kids. They probably think I’m nuts, but it smells sooooooooo gooooooooood!
    Y’all come back, ya hear?

  • I am thinking that turkey tastes about as good as Tofurkey. And this from a tofu lover.

  • Every well equipped guest room should contain blocking wires. I can’t imagine why Emily Post failed to mention it.

  • I work next door to a big Franz bakery in Washington, it has a giant loaf of bread in the sky too. The smells that come out of that place, especially when they are making onion rolls, makes the walk across the parking lot a joy!

  • Ahhh…travel pictures of signs. Ann, you’re a gal after my own heart.
    That color, “Midnight,” sublime!

  • Best quote:
    “Yeah, why wouldn’t ya… I mean, it’s in motion.”

  • Love those scarves. Way to work the murk!

  • the scarves are gorgeous. So glad I got to meet you in person, but you are beginning to embarrass me with your speed knitting.

  • felted food
    the crisis no doubt
    love the pictures family pictures
    lemon beside the pancake on the plate
    is most agreeable is it not
    and peeking in to the guest room
    my goodness have we no shame

  • Are we having a touch of an obsession over rotating sculptural advertisements? 🙂

  • Love the scarfs. The colors are lovely. Kay what an awsome hostess you are to provide blocking wires for your guest. I’ll be by on Tuesday ;D

  • Hi ladies! A few years ago I worked in an office where my window faced that twirling bread. The smell of that place in the afternoon is amazing.

  • The rotating pink elephant! Yay!
    – Ryan in, no surprise, Seattle

  • I’m glad you got to see the Elephant Carwash sign. I’ve lived here for 2 1/2 years, and every time I see the pink elephant going round and round (and I work only 3 blocks away), I get a giant grin. It was great to see you! Come back soon!

  • Beautiful scarves. Love the Midnight color.

  • Oh wow! That felted Thanksgiving feast! We stumbled on the Franz Bread Bakery when we were in Portland over the summer. It was a truly fascinating place to some –
