Summertime Knitting

I know many of you think that it’s too hot to knit here in Mazatlán, but I always have a project going. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately. At the top of the post is the project I’m working on now… a kind of crazy tunic pattern with square holes. I am using my backwards knitting technique a lot on this one!

Now life is normal for winter – I am just the right amount of busy. I wrote a new column for January’s M! Magazine – on food treats from around México. Last Saturday was the first weekly Organic Market at...
