The Roosters are in the house....

The terrifically colorful roosters are one of my all time favorite projects...they're inspired by Picasso's Le Coq...and I think all of the students were channeling his creativity when they worked on these. I would frame each and every one of the results!

It's Like Riding a Bicycle...

I took up the art of knitting a couple of years ago, inspired by my friend, Christine's nimble fingers...but stopped for some reason...and for the life of me I could not remember how to restart and cast on again...but suddenly this week it all came back to me...I guess it is kind of like riding a bicycle...once you learn you never forget.
