Day 7 – Wayfarer Mitts

“Magic of the shadows can best be seen in the deserts.”
― Mehmet Murat ildan

Wayfarer Mitts remind me of my childhood home, walking a few miles each day across a mesa to and from high school, and later, camping 10 days along the San Juan River and sleeping in a canyon bed in Utah, and a solo road trip from the Southwest to Pacific Northwest that has been my home for the second half of my life.

I confess I sat for five hours moving nothing but my hands (not recommended), and couldn’t put this mitt down once I started it. So evocative for me to watch the painting appear and joy to realize I happened to have seven yarn scraps on hand that worked well together.

Proof and accountability I have begun the right hand mitt in reverse sand/rock colorwork for yarn yardage, and intend not to leave this a one-handed project that sits in a basket for a year…

No time today for nature mandala, but I am thrilled I finally figured out more video editing features on my phone, so future video uploads will be better and smoother. I updated yesterday’s video I took. Now that YouTube has removed most of its editing features, I tried many different free video editing software until finally I discovered I could do it all on my phone. Palm to face moment. It’s amazing how powerful these computers are most of us carry around, yet most of us (me) don’t even know a smidge of their capability until we’re frustrated enough to learn.
