Sweater #3 of knitting during COVID. Love it but it is too hot to wear this sweater, luckily it doesn’t stop the spread of the virus so I don’t have to wear it. But #wearamask ! It’s not as hot as this sweater and might save someone’s life. #knitting #knittinginthetimeofcorona The pattern is Reunion Cardigan by Brienne Moody.
Sweater #2 of the pandemic brought to you by stress knitting. I love the retro look of this so I used a retro button. #knitting #knittinginthetimeofcorona

Last week I finished my first sweater in the time-of-the-stay-home. LYS (Little Yellow Sweater) by @dreareneeknits was such a fun knit. I did most of it during zoom meetings these last couple months. I get a lot of knitting done because it keeps me focused over the video format. And no one can see me knitting so they don’t get angry like in real meetings. #knitting #littleyellowsweater #lyssweater
I was accepted into the Utah Women’s Artist Exhibition this year but unfortunately the exhibit was canceled like everything else. But you can see the catalog online and I won an award! My “Wearable Maps: SLC” won the Florence E. Ware Honor Award. I am in good company so please look at the catalog online: wvcarts.org/aauwexhibit.html . I love these two pieces! Navigating a city can be made easier with an interactive map that also keeps you warm. Why use tech when a scarf is a more tactile way to find your destination? Pin your favorite hangout or mark your starting place. This map of Salt Lake City can be your companion around town and won’t run out of batteries. #knitting #lakesaltknit #wearablemap
It’s been a rough week for my family but we were able to get out yesterday to spend time in nature at Antelope Island. It was a much-needed break and a beautiful day to socially distance. On Saturday we said goodbye to my mother-in-law and father-in-law who died unexpectedly in a car crash last week. We were heartbroken to not be able to travel to Illinois for the burial and to mourn with our family. But lots of calls and photos helped us with a bit of closure and we hope to get out there this summer or fall if all goes well and everyone stays home for a bit longer.
Visible Mending Teacup. This is what I have been doing in the midst of a pandemic and earthquakes. This piece celebrates the heroes of this time; the healers, sewers, caretakers, and makers that are getting it done amidst the bluster and blowhards. #knitting #visiblemending #pandemicart
Dreaming of castles in the sky. This is the first place I want to go when this is all over. I made this fun little hat to remind me if this view I had out my front door when I lived in the park last September. The Castle is one of the most recognizable formation in Capitol Reef National Park, It is made of Wingate Sandstone formed about 200 million years ago. Wingate is known for its blocky, vertical cliffs giving the appearance of turrets, crenellations, and towers. This artwork was produced under the Artist in Residence Program at Capitol Reef National Park. #artistinresidence #capitolreefnationalpark #knitting
Found this needlepointed gem when spring decluttering. Made by my grandma in the 70s for me. The other side says “Ginny is out”. ❤️ this is perfect for my new office. #workingfromhome #socialdistancing #needlepoint
