Thank you to Bethany college(see below) for providing the background music for this blog post! All I need to do is wash and block and that should take a day or so to do it right. I got the buttons specially. The color here is not correct – my camera’s batteries wore out and my cell phone just doesn’t cut it. Just as well. I … Continue reading Done!!!!
I don’t have any really interesting pictures to show you, dear 1.5 readers – and I have not gotten a lot of knitting done, either. So close and yet so far on that sweater. But I have a deadline looming and must get work done. Part of being a grownup I suppose, which is a good thing most days. I believe I last posted in … Continue reading Catch-up in mid-week

I am taking a break from trying to untangle the mess that is my calendar for a brief posting (hmmm, is that like brief showers? Never mind). The weather is just beautiful today, and after I’m done with re-organizing the mess that is my desk (and calendar – see above), I’m going walking again!!! I’ll probably be in major pain because I’ve become such a … Continue reading Sunshine is BACK!
Started a slight diversion – I couldn’t keep away from the cashmere yarn from NYC:) and when I saw this lacy scarf in Piecework magazine, I couldn’t resist. It was something fun to start – just a distraction because tomorrow I get going on finishing that sweater:) It’s funny. Since last I wrote in the wee hours of the morning, I got to bed at … Continue reading Long Week
