In which I am linguistically challenged

Feeling a little verbally challenged tonight, so I'll just post up a pic of my latest project.

Woodland Tryst

And some lovely lovely stitch markers that my friend messicat made....she's only a beginning knitter but she beads with the best of them.

Pearly stitch markers

I have been putting a lot of thought into the package for a swap I'm participating in with the Fairytale and Folklore group. I'm hoping messicat will be able to help me create some stitch markers to go with it. :D

In which I knit my first sock!

Baby sock

Check it out - my first sock! The kitchener stitch for the toe is a touch loose and I have a slight hole at the ankle where I picked up the stitches at the heel. But otherwise I am quite please. Now I have to make the other one. Sigh.

Ostara and Amina Khaleegy Sydney Multicultural Festival

Here are two of the girls from "Desert Roses", Josefina Daley's bellydance troupe that I'm part of. This dance is in the khaleegy style, from the United Arab Emirates. The dancers pick up the front of that voluminous robe and use it as a prop. The other very important prop is hair - it gets swung around a lot in this style of dancing.

The photographer, Nico, is the husband of Chani and takes lovely photos. We're very lucky he comes to all of our performances!
