One Man’s Legacy

Some people skateboard, and are really good at it. There are those who cook or sing or write. Others knit. Then there is this man. He plays music with his hands. And he rocks.

(He’s got something for everyone, so be sure to check out some of other videos.)

ETA Mr. Interrupted’s reaction: “It’s like a theramin, only… it isn’t.”

Thanks to Scalzi for pointing me in his general direction!


#1’s Sweater

  • Pattern: Knitting Pure & Simple Child’s Tunic.
  • More details can be found on Ravelry.

#1 had forgotten one of the two (yes, two) sweaters he owned at a playdate, so I worked hard to get this sweater finished quickly. For a knitter’s kid, #1 was sadly deficient in the sweater department. Of course, since the cold weather has persisted, we ended up over at the second hand store the other day to pick up a couple of commercially made sweaters to round out his spring weather wardrobe, but this hand-knit is, by far, my favorite. (Naturally.)

I am still trying to claw my way out of a knitting slump and have been obsessing lately about knitting socks. I’ve enjoyed knitting this sweater and have three seven other sweater projects I want to cast on, but dudes, I need get some smallish projects going first. How about this? Or this? And maybe this? Well, onward it is!
