my friend carolyn, who is an awesome knitter and handloomer, had a birthday a few days ago. here is a photo of the little present i made for her. . .

and that is some actual knitting on those wee little needles. . . the little 'pot' is about 2 inches in diameter with polymer bits after one of the styles carolyn uses for her amazing cardis.

the little ball of yarn is also polymer, but the actually knitted bit is some embroidery thread which i knitted with those wee needles.

happiest of birthdays to a wonderful friend.

i can't believe how hard it is to get started on these blogs..... i wonder if i am the only one who finds it so?

i just thought i would start this one today as it is my birthday and i am 66 years on this earth at this moment, well, not quite, as i was born at 10:30pm. thanks, mom!

tomorrow i shall post some photos of my polymer clay critters; i have just spent the last hour reading thru polymer clay daily, a great site for anyone who sees this and hasn't been there.

by then i will have gotten the willies out of my system and will be able to start doing some posts about my own clay work and about that of those who inspire me.

til then. . .
