I can't believe it (well, maybe I can), I just lost my post - curses!
Anyway, here goes again...
After 24 years in the working world I finally have my very own office. Not that I deserve it, but it sure is nice to have four walls AND A DOOR! I also have a view.
That's looking south across the Sacramento Valley. I love seeing all the trees; it's very calming.
I also got my hair done yesterday. Here is a "day after" photo. Of course, I couldn't get it styled quite the same as my stylist (she's the professional after all), but I wanted to show you the color. I had her do a deep auburn this time and I really like it. It's just a pity red tones fade so quickly.
Knitting? What Knitting? I have not had any concentrated knitting or crocheting time in days. I am really feeling strung out without my fiber fix.
But here's a recap of my WIPs:
* Shapely T (still need motivational vibes sent my way);
* Flower Power Poncho (still working on getting gauge);
* White and turquoise fuzzy scarf (I will be knitting a matching hat too);
* Another Cape Bohemia in Trendsetter's Dune (love this yarn, love this pattern)
I placed an order with the Treadbear boys, amid must controversy. We'll see if they come through. I ordered some Phil Onde in Chrorophyl green to knit my daughter a tank and some Manos del Uruguay to knit the Meza Luna bag.
I'm also itching to start a cardi or pullover for myself. I know it's 95+ degrees outside, but after going through my stash last week, I now know I have enough yarn for a sweater or two, perhaps three. Most of my yarn are one-skein wonders, so I usually don't have enough of one kind of yarn to make much of anything besides scarves and hats. However, with my scrap-happy experience, I could whip up some "designer" ponchos and Colinette-esque throws and shawls.
