Hands Up! & Feet On The Table Trois Kits from Black Water Abbey Yarns

Mitten and Stocking kits from Black Water Abbey Yarns, which I am very sad to see is closed.
Patterns are available on Ravelry (linked below) but the kits are history.

Feet on the Table Trois stockings

I bought the kits in the Marketplace at Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat. I was walking past Black Water Abbey Yarns eyeing the tiny stockings and mittens and stopped dead in my tracks when the idea hit me; she saw me suddenly stop and asked “What are you thinking?!”.
A GARLAND!

A garland of mittens and stockings, her eyes lit up, I picked two kits and she customized them by swapping yarn colors so the two kits would coordinate better.

There was plenty of yarn so…

POM POMS!

Everything is better with POM POMS!

The Wall Of Koigu and A Clever Design

“What’s next?” turned out to be the Koigu fingerless mittens, mostly because they required the least amount of thinking. Thinking can really slow down my knitting. Some times it even halts my knitting. They’re pictured below in front of The Wall Of Koigu at Knit-Purl in Portland, where they lived in a previous life as hanks.

I was treated to being photographed by The Blogger of Knit-Purl, who is even more delightful in person than on the blogpage.
Not a treat, was me rolling out as the champagne was rolling in! Aaah! that was tough, but I had a three hour drive north and work the next morning. If I lived in Portland, Sip ‘N’ Stitch at Knit-Purl is definitely where I would spend my Thursday evenings.

A Clever Design

I was visiting Portland State University, walking past Stephan Eppler Hall:

PSU Eppler Hall X015

The break in the pathway caught my eye, it is part of the building’s rain drain system:

PSU Eppler Hall A016

The downspout empties into a bed of stones, which drains out the bottom through the spout on the bottom left:

PSU Eppler Hall A017

The spout empties into a channel with an arrangement of granite bricks that allows the water to flow across the walkway through the spaces between the bricks and allows pedestrians to walk without tripping or spashing:

PSU Eppler Hall A019

At the end of channel the water falls into a sunken garden with stones at the base of the waterfall:

PSU Eppler Hall A020

Each drain is different, each bed of stones is different, each sunken garden is different:

PSU Epler Hall B003

PSU Eppler Hall C009

PSU Epper Hall B021

PSU Eppler Hall C026

PSU Eppler Hall B007

PSU Eppler Hall C014

I love a clever design.
