I needed a hat

to wear for the First Friday artwalk downtown. It's November now, time to put away the cute sandals and bundle up in cute hats. I found this supercute crochet pattern by Melissa Rotert and whipped it up with a skein of Angel Hair yarn that's been hanging around for a while.

The galleries in downtown Spokane hold their opening receptions the first Friday of every month, so I bundled up and headed out with my friends Bridget and Carol to see the sights. These are postcards from 2 of the shows. On the left is a clay tile piece by Alice Fairbanks-Wilcox called Still Want to be Desired, showing at the Kolva-Sullivan Gallery. I love this piece and was very happy to see it was on the postcard. On the left is a collage of works from The Mask Show at Artisan's Wares. Lots of fun, whimsical masks by some of my favorite local artists, including Rik Nelson who makes amazing art from post-consumer recyclables.

Nice hat, I can totally see you in that. I am also crocheting a hat, though it will be blue, green, and yellow, and it will have ear flaps. Perhaps it will even have a tassle, if I have any yarn left over.
