I Like Thursdays 2018, Week #3

Linking up to Not Afraid of Color.

I like crabs. I made this quilt last weekend for a challenge. In terms of eating crabs, I much prefer the Gulf coast recipes. Around here, EVERYTHING is tainted with Old Bay Seasoning. 

I like little extras :)

My middle kid saw a bag at the alpaca festival, but it was too rich for his blood. I told him I'd make him one, since I was pretty sure I could find the fabric -and I did. It's the exploding Tardis.

 SO, he now has a new dice bag.

I like our sycamore. The top branches are full of seed pods that TMOTH keeps waiting on to fall, so he can cast them in to pen blanks.

I like beer! Last weekend, I went to a "Learn to Knit" event at a local brewery, and had a great time!
Casting on:
 Getting started:
Knitting and purling practice:
 I ripped out the practice piece and started a pattern- and soon learned howto frog. Frogging knitting is WAY more complicated than frogging crochet.

Hi Michelle,
Knitting at a brewery! That is a fabulous idea, and it sounds like great fun. I love Old Bay - I use it in everything - I guess I'd better move to your area. ~smile~ Roseanne

Pretty quilt finish and nice to see you did do knitting at the brewery!

alpaca's!! Knitting! I'm knitting again right now. Knitting and alcohol are a great combo. Love the tree pic! And the crab. Girl, if you don't want old bay, then it's banned from your house! Do it your way! I grew up in Florida with crabs and no old bay.

Love your crab quilt! I think knitting at the local brewery sounds like a lot of fun! My son plays games and I know he would love that dice bag--even if he is 40 some years old (apparently they don't outgrow it). Have a wonderful day!

You are an awesome mom. That dice bag is to die for!

That crab quilt is really neat. I like the ripples in the fabric - very much like water or sand on the beach!

wow for the extra fabric! I hope you show what is made with the sycamore pods when they have fallen. Sounds, fascinating.
