I've always wanted to learn masonry. There is a spot in my garden which would benefit from a nice little outdoor fireplace. I've built stone walls, I've made hypertufa troughs using Portland cement. It's just a matter of combining skills and working with rebar. . .
For now, I'll be content with knitting hats which have a brick motif.
There are mittens to match.
The brick hat is DD#1's new favorite.
I'm still working on my Demi and my Celtic cables. I just need small quick projects like these for the massive amount of time I spend schlepping kids here and there.
