The New Moon by Zora Bernice May Cross

The New Moon by Zora Bernice May Cross

The New Moon

What have you got in your knapsack fair,
White moon, bright moon, pearling the air,
Spinning your bobbins and fabrics free,
Fleet moon, sweet moon, in to the sea?
Turquoise and beryl and rings of gold,
Clear moon, dear moon, ne’er to be sold?
Roses and lilies, romance and love,
Still moon, chill moon, swinging above?
Slender your feet as a white birds throat,
High moon, shy moon, drifting your boat
Into the murk of the world awhile,
Slim moon, dim moon, adding a smile.
Tender your eyes as a maiden’s kiss,
Fine moon, wine moon, no one knows this,
Under the spell of your witchery,
Dream moon, cream moon, first he kissed me.

Zora Bernice May Cross

New Moon inspired Alice Cullen mitts.

Photo note:

"This is my replica of the mitts worn by Alice Cullen in the upcoming movie New Moon. The pattern is at for free by adnilamyrf.
This design is all about the yarn so I dyed it myself using Wilton cake dyes, vinegar and the microwave. Check out my project area on Ravelry for complete details of my process."

Photographer's note:

"Yay! a crafty project that came out well!
I used Fuzzy Mitten's siamese cat pattern, with minor modifications (mostly, I did the ears differently than directed."

Can you really knit next to a cat?

Photo note:

"Yes, I can. I have spent quite a bit of effort teaching our cats that my knitting is not a toy. Here I've put my knitting down next to Catrina, who has been sleeping at my feet on the couch."

Another great, knitted idea!

Photo note:

"Recycled tin can (washed of course) filled with homemade snack mix, decorated with scrapbooking left-overs and topped with a hand knit dishcloth. Wrapped up with yarn scraps and topped with a vintage acorn button."

apples used to shape the drying felted bowls

If you're like me, you still have lots of apples left from the apple trees.

This knitter has put apples to another good use!

I started this guy late yesterday afternoon and finished him up this morning. He's a special Thanksgiving surprise for Camdyn. I knit the head, body, and beak in the round and felted everything in the machine, which really sped the whole thing up!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! blogged

It's been awhile since I've added anything, and with Fall in full swing, it's time for some fall knits.

I love these knitted pumpkins nestled in with real squash~
