Knitting along with the TDF

July 9, 2009

Althougth I realize I don’t need to start a new project at the moment, I’ve starting doing a Tour de France knit along.  I’m making a pink flower shawl from last summers Knit 1. magazine, in Misti Alpaca.  It has really pretty flower petal border that you knit on later, and a very simple lace pattern.

My adventures at the Stampede continue, I had a great visit the other day.  I fell madly in love with an artists paintings;  you can see them at, do a search for Jean Taylor.  Then under her locked area, use the password “imagination”.  I’d really love to get a print of the paintings of feet and snowshoes, I think they are so beautiful and unique. 

I also fell madly in love with some of the dancers at the Indian Village (a politically incorrect name now perhaps, but what it is still called).  I have put some more photos, and movies up on Flickr, but here are my three faves.

    HA ha Anne- I checked out your flickr and 100% agree with your comment on the way they displayed the first prize winner. WTF? How am I supposed to see what that even was!
