I got some of the pictures the newspaper people took when they interviewed me right before Christmas. For the most part, they are great pictures, so I thought I'd share them here.





These are my hands knitting the sweater I finished for my husband for Christmas. This picture, and most of the others, didn't actually make it into the paper.





This is a close-up of one of the snowmen I made. This one is my favorite. He turned out so cute! I gave him away for Christmas, but I might just have to make one for myself like this!




Another hand shot. There's nothing wonderful about my hands, except what they can do.



Here's a picture of three little snowmen. I made a total of 5, and have requests for more. The pattern didn't have felting instructions, but I thought I'd like them better felted, so I made these out of 100% wool and felted them. I like the way they turned out. This picture did make it into the paper.




This is the first adult-sized sweater I made. I finished it about a year ago, and it has become a favorite of mine to wear. I have no idea why I didn't center the tag when I sewed it on. Never thought anyone would see it, much less a picture would end up being published in a paper, so I never bothered to take it out and center it!

These felted apples are very cute. I like how the picture was taken to focus on one and leave the other two blurry.





Okay, this is the last of the newspaper interview pictures for now. This purse was home with me because I thought it was rather ugly. The pink wool didn't felt as well as the blue wool, and I didn't really like how it turned out. Looks better in this picture than it does in real life. But, they wanted to see some of my work and that's what I had lying around.
