CELESTE'S MAZE JUMPER
I designed 'The maze Jumper' as my tribute to Barbara G. Walker. The Jumper is knit in the round to the underarms and then knit flat. The Maze pattern is from the 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns. I did adapt the slip stitch pattern by not repeating each rnd. instead I knit the pattern rnd. only once. The yarn is KnitPicks Shine.

CELESTE'S TOAD ROCK TIE
This is the Toad Rock Tie that I designed. Where I live (Nelson, BC Canada) in the 80's the ties used to be on the telephone poles for several miles going to Ainsworth Hot Springs. They are now long gone but I have very fond memories of 'counitng' the ties with my young family. The ties started at a very large rock called Toad rock. The sock yarn is Opal.
