don’t hold it against me that i’ve abandoned you.
i haven’t really.
i’m just a slacker.
there have been so many secret projects, outings, and general life stuff that, rather than attempt to catch you up with words, how about a picture post?
favorite yarn store in Michigan, woven art
dinner at slows
the final recital show ever *tear* at the majestic cafe
started a top-down sweater in my fave michigan wool (yarn is shepherd’s wool by stonehedge fiber mill in white colorway)
started some squirrel mittens (ravelry link – yarn is jameison spindrift in pine and burnt umber colorways)
finished my epiphany gift for carla-k, a peaks island hood by isolda teague. i will never make it again, it is a terribly written pattern (work in pat.? which pat?), but i conquered it none the less.
(note: there were actually three of us at the shop working on this at the same time. we all had trouble. but once completed, we ran up and down the aisles singing “peaks island HOOD!”)
and i made this birthday bear hat which should be arriving at its intended destination any minute! (pattern is turn a square by jared flood, yarn is cascade 200 heathers in the chocolate heather colorway and noro silk garden in 293 colorway)
this doesn’t come close to covering all the stuff that i’ve gone through this winter but some stuff is too personal for a blog and this entry is long enough right?
no worries bitches, i’m doing well.
