Mamey is a Mexican fruit that looks like an avocado. The taste is kind of that of a sweet potato. Lately we could only find it as frozen pulp and used it to make smoothies.

Caterpillar Costume

My nephew, Jose, and his wife are expecting a boy in October and they want me to knit them a caterpillar outfit for his first photo shoot. I found this nice variegated yarn in greens and aqua and this is how it looks so far.

Arroyo Shawl

It's finished. I took glamour shots of it throughout the house where the light was better.

It's Long!

Look how long this is! The colors are repeating now backwards.

I'm getting ready to make some guacamole just for me to go with my black bean tacos.

Spectra Update

I'm so happy to see how much progress I have made on this scarf. The colors remind me of fall and my daughter said it reminded her of Thanksgiving.

I started knitting this scarf by Stephen West called Spectra. So far I have memorized the pattern and it is easy to follow.
