knitting goes everywhere

A friend sent me the link to these masks. My daughter knew that the green one was Cthulhu.
This peacock mask/hat is quite beautiful.
I am knitting a scarf in basketweave with that Noro yarn, but think there might be a better use for it (any suggestions?) anyway the knitting postcard is of a watercolor "Old Guernsey Lady Knitting" by Peter Le Lievre (1812-98) in the Guernsey Museum and Art Gallery.
This wonderful postcard was sent to me by a friend of my daughter. This plucky sixteen year old left our tiny Maine town to attend high school on the island of Stord in Norway. She took this photograph at the knitting museum there, slapped a back on it, and mailed it off.
Happy mid-winter to everyone!

I love the idea of knitting masks.

What an adventuresome lass that youngster sounds! Clever idea for a postcard.

I always think Noro looks especially nice in an Entrelac stitch. But Noro looks wonderful however you knit it!

Entrelac, good idea!

Those masks are super cool - I have never seen any like that. The peacock one is amazing.

That's what I love about knitting, it goes from the traditional to the wild in one fell swoop!
