This skirt was an easy knit in Euroflax Linen. I love the drape this yarn has, it feels wonderful to wear and softens with each washing. And best of all, it is easy to care for as it is machine washable and dryable. It is modeled here by my beautiful daughter Alexandra.

- I am a self-employed knitter/designer and photographer. I strive to write unique designs inspired by nature, folklore, magic, Fairies and Elves, and I find a lot of inspiration from symbolism and traditions in cultures throughout history. I also love to photograph nature on an intimate level. As a Master Gardener I raise garden starts each spring to sell locally, and I am also a soap maker and musician. I can be found at our local Dexter Lake Farmer's and Crafter's Market on Sundays from May thru October selling my knitting patterns and hand knit items, as well as hand crafted soap, macro-photography from the garden, and tomato and pepper starts for your garden. You can find me on Ravelry as Peargirl and our band The Pears can be found on Reverbnation.

It had been 5 years since our family had been to Bandon. It is so beautiful there that I will never wait that long again. We have always visited during Labor Day weekend in September, and the weather has always cooperated. The beach is sandy with beautiful giant rock outcroppings including Face Rock, tide pools during low tide with plenty of starfish, anenomes and other creatures, and I am always amazed how hardly anyone is on the beach. It was a wonderful 4 days.

The festival is fast approaching and still so much to do. This will be our 28th year putting this event on, which happens to be in our own backyard which is 2.5 acres of forested beauty at the base of the Cascade Mountains. It is a beautiful setting for outdoor music, great food, and awesome friends and family who join us. The Pears will be playing and will feature Alexandra, our daughter, on bari sax. Our son Zach plays drums in Pleasant Swill. We are hoping for cooler weather this year...last year we had a record scorcher of 108 degrees, although by afternoon we are drenched in the shade of Douglas and Grand Firs well over 100 years old.

We have a 16 x 30' greenhouse that we have always wanted to build a raised bed inside of so that we could garden all year. This spring we finally did it! The bed is 18' 9" long by 3' 9" wide, with a height close to 3 feet above ground, perfect for sitting on the sides while working in the bed or just enjoying the ambiance of the greenhouse. We are currently harvesting many varieties of lettuce, bok choy, collards, spinach, mustard greens, and several varieties of tomatoes are going crazy, along with eggplant, peppers, walla walla sweet onions, cabbage and dill.

Yesterday I completed my Lizard Ridge Afghan, I absolutely love it. It was a joy to knit and I loved the creative aspect of it. It reminds me of water flowing, sunsets on oceans, sandy beaches, coral reefs, deep ocean bottoms, mountains with streams meandering thru them, gently rolling hills, nature ever changing, constantly in motion which in turn helped me with my color selection. I am happy that I came upon this pattern designed by Laura Aylor, and can be found at http://www.knitty.com/ in the Fall 2006 collection. I highly recommend this pattern to anyone who loves to knit with color ♥

I like to create and find inspiration from my life and the natural world. Thoughts come in the form of lyrics thru experience, visual art thru my own perception of existence. I can't imagine waking in the morning and not knowing what to do with my time. I just wish that there was more of it.
