Farewell my friend. You were well loved and will be missed terribly.

2013 marked my fourth SAW. It also marked the first SAW where I wasn’t a gigantic stress-ball going in. It has been a long, long time since I enjoyed/celebrated a week. Elizabeth & Co. out did themselves.

Grateful that I was able to spend time with such creative and talented and funny people. Grateful that I was able to broaden my craft world and take classes in basketry, weaving and painting. Grateful for catching up with old friends and making new ones.

is it June 2014 yet?

Cuddlebug in my lap

For some strange inexplicable reason, the pup was a cuddlebug today. We followed our usual protocol for weekend mornings: romp in the dog park, stop at the market for victuals and back home by 10 for EPL soccer matches.

The extreme cuddle factor can’t be explained, but I’ll take it.

Cables, color work, a bit of intarsia (not a fan). Silk, linen, cotton, acrylic (shudder). I’ve knit them all, but nothing to me is as satisfying as a simple, wooly-wool, top-down, sweater.

2013 is the Year of the Stash. The plan is to work methodically through a bin/container at a time until it is all used up and then move on to the next one. First up the Noro bin. Good news – I am highly motivated to knit. Bad news – I am going to be sad when it is all used up. Good news – that’s at least 3.5 sweaters away from happening. Good news – I have more wooly-wools to play with – the Lopi bin is huge and I’ve got a sweaters worth of Seacolors that I am twitchy to start working with.

I’ve always loved maps. Seeing this makes me want to get out my embroidery supplies and practice. Oh, the maps I want to stitch!

Love this pup

Personality-wise, Ringo is the exact opposite of Java. Where she was mellow and easy going, he is ENTHUSIASTIC! OMG IS THAT A BALL? CAT? BUSH? MUST GO FIND OUT! NOW! THIS IS AWESOME! Ringo lives his life in capital letters and exclamation points.

A lesson for all of us.
