What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle:
It still needs blocking, so no good pics yet. But it is very pretty and a bit sophisticated looking, perhaps because of the unusual colors. Made from my handspun, I am please to say.
Mother Bear Project Bears--number 6, number 7, and number 8. All of a sudden, I just got the bug to make these...
While visiting the Knitmore Girls, I sent Bear #6 on a mission into Jasmin's fiber stash. We would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for those meddling kids...
Still in Progress:
wristers: One done. I have not yet successfully started the second. Blast!.
TwinFace's 2011 Holiday Afghan, themed after the Third Doctor of Classic Doctor Who. Yes, that center square in blue was designed to look like the windows on the outside of the Tardis. This one is about hald finished, so I need a bit of oomph! to get back to it as those rtows get longer and the weather gets hotter.
The wheels are silent this week, and Retzlaff Winery postponed their spinning event. But I got to hang out with the Knitmores anyway, so I had a GREAT TIME!
Strategy: About Passive-Aggressive People--Passive does not mean passive aggressive, and, sadly, vice-versa.
Something I Really Like: Yoga Tune-up balls. Get them here!
We have a webiste at http://www.cogknitive.com/. You can find older episodes there. I am still busily uploading them, though. Please be patient.
I got a weekend at Knitmore Central! What a blast! I even got Yoga tune-up balls and a great class in Los Gatos. I also enjoyed the northern CA gloom (I really did!) and the excellent company. I came home richer by some fantastic recipes, a glorious cookbook, and some tasty pickled goodies. Meanwhile, I search for jobs, work on prepping and freezing fruit until I decide what to do wirh it, and train Blankets.
