Faux Van Gogh

I painted this for my sister, and to play with Van Gogh's colors. Next, a landscape--or a sunflower sweater!

Lefse Day

My sister and I continue to appease our Norwegian roots by making lefse every Christmas.  Here's a few pix from lefse day, a few days before Christmas....

Gotta start with coffee, as any good Norwegian knows!   We prefer Dutch Brothers.
Mash up cooked Idaho russet taters, flour, cream and a tad of powdered sugar, roll it out.  My sis can get it "light as a fairy's wing"(my lefse is, uh, more "rustic").  I'm the baker.  I'm turning it with a lefse stick.
Note the handknit mitten used for turning the hot dials.  The big round griddle is an official lefse griddle. Big YUM-O!!!

Fudd Hat

I'm working on a little book of hat patterns, here's the Fudd Hat prototype.  I used some old Bernat Whistler, a chunky superwash wool(great yarn, sniff! it's gone!).
