These are now planted in little pots scattered around on my window sills, but I haven't got a picture yet. Tom and I biked to Flora Grub through an industrial bit of San Francisco and returned with many tiny plants. I did the repotting last weekend, so now I have a bay window full of little green things.

Noro Scarf

This is the second scarf I've made like this, and also the second one I've lost. I knit it on the trip to Turkey, and then lost it at work the second time I wore it. BAH.

Catching up

I have a rather large backlog of projects to post, so hopefully I'll be getting to that soonish.

This is an aluminum tile that I made in a workshop at the Crucible before Christmas. It's supposed to be Baba Yaga's hut, though I'm not sure how much of that came through. The method was sand-casting - carving a block of sand and binder into the right shape, then pouring in the molten metal.
