Starts and Friday Finishes

I will “start” this post with a recent walk around the old mining town of Bisbee, AZ.  It has little copper mining going on now, the town is primarily a tourist/artist community.  A fun place to visit.  This is a vacant lot that displays much artistic impulses.IMG_2591 We walked along some of the back streets. You can find just about anything used for landscapes. This is a wall with many kinds of glass cemented into the surface.

IMG_2596 I see they found a good use for old Avon bottles.IMG_2597 Another wall decorated with mask impressions.  It’s always a treat to go to Bisbee.IMG_2594Now for some more  “Starts”.  I’m knitting a gift for a wonderful friend in Kentucky using hand spun baby alpaca.  You can’t believe how soft the yarn turned out.  IMG_2166 I had some leftover sock yarn and started a second bottle sweater.  IMG_2169 And I started the second row of sheep on my Navajo tapestry.IMG_2170Time for the Friday Finishes.  These are my first “Matchy Matchy socks.IMG_2167 The tapestry is hung.IMG_2172 And another project bag for the Tombstone Yarn Babe.IMG_2587See ya,
