Nothing Doing

Sad but true, just getting by these days, nothing new, nothing to report. Squeezing some fun in here and there – Birthdays, dinners, foods, thrifting, preparing for spooky times this Thursday… Fall comes, Fall goes, it is COLD here now. Need to be doing things I am not doing because of all these other things I have to do. Confusing and complicated.

Pause

Life is on pause for a moment. Really enjoyed the (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend thanks to family and friends-as-good-as-family. Thank You All. I am Thankful for YOU! Sent my little bro a candleholder and sweet smelling candle for his birthday to keep him in light and warmth in his soon-to-be-sans electric winter shack. I really liked this one, reminds me of a mushroom. Debated whether to add smaller blue dots but then passed. Need to make more.

Also knitted that bonnet. I meant it to be for a newborn but accidentally did it on the wrong sized needles and was to far along when I finally noticed to bother stopping, so now it fits every member of the family but looks cutest on the kids. I am very much a beginner to barely intermediate knitter but this pattern is pretty easy. I know people always say that but it is true. This was an Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern, the baby bonnet to match her famous “Baby Surprise Jacket”. I found the pattern in this book and did it with Koigu (Painter’s Palette – made in Canada!) merino wool, on size 4 US needles (but for a small baby should have used size 1 or 2 US). Anyway, looks sweet I think. I used to make this bonnet and thread a ribbon for the tie but this time I made an icord which I like much better. Will try that for the matching booties too. Anyway, sorry for boring knitting talk, you know how it is, nice to talk shop every now and then…

Excuses for not finishing scarf for last 6 months and for not setting up studio yet. (beautiful weather, kids home, job applications)

Hi friends, a quick but seemingly essential post related to IRL activities that I am hoping will move me forward: the “Digi Brushes” pillow is only available for purchase for 1 more day, which is today, and it is already the afternoon, so maybe it makes no sense to post this but I will anyways. Here is the link: http://www.byco.com/view/detail/2496

Baby and art/design related content to soon follow, thank you for your continued supports!!
