I give you a peak at the newest art project. It is a vessel method three dimensional fish, representing the colours and culture of the Caribbean nations. The brights remind me of the houses and decorations and whimsical style of the people. The fun and humour and relaxed attitudes. The dark is the clear, calm and magical nights. I can hear the ocean and the music and the sway of the palms.
Puesta de Sol, means sunset in spanish. The time when the colourful hot days turn into the warm beautiful evening.

I have always found that my favourite leather gloves, with their soft and warm lining, still leave my wrists a bit chilly with a gap between my coat and the gloves. I have so much leftover sock yarn, it became a quick and easy fix. Since I "improved" my leather gloves, I LOVE them even more!
Leather glove CUFF pattern:
Yarn: any sock yarn. less than 25 grams (half a skein).
Needles: 4 double points 2.25mm. (gauge is not particularly important, these are really stretchy and that is what you want)
Cast on 48 sts, divided between three needles (16 per needle). Join without twisting.
Work k2, p2 ribbing for about 4 - 5 inches.
Cast off LOOSELY.
