Dunno about amazing, but I do like the way this shawl came out. The yarn, for those keeping score, is kinda sticky and harder than most to frog, but for five dollah, who's whining? And the colors are pretty (though in the subway lights, they seem a bit harsh). The whole shebang is from Lion - yarn and pattern. And true to my name, mostly hooked on the R, N, or D lines of our New York City subway system.
So you know, the pattern is the South Bay Shawlette and the yarn is Amazing in Ruby.

Happy New Year, y'all!
I was all set to post my latest bits and bobs, largely created in a rush as gifties for my near and dear, when I decided a bit of Flickr-dipping was in order. You know, checking out the odd stuff getting posted here and there.
Mid-dip, I chanced upon some of Cheenara's latest work. I've blogged about this extremely talented woman in the past, and I stand by my assessment of her work. Friggin' brilliant! See that piece above? And those that follow? I am humbled by this kind of talent. Seriously.
And then there's Jessica Danby, another incredibly talented woman creating fine art using humble sticks... But I cannot upload her photos, so here is a link to her work on Flickr.
And finally for this post is the extraordinary Max Alexander, whose work stretches from jewelry to animation to fabulous knitting graffiti:
This is the kind of thing that makes me want to yarnbomb my own front garden. And I might well.....
