Wishing I was in Maui, but dealing with being here

Before it started raining ……

red sky at night sailors delight, red sky in the morning (and these were in the morning) sailors take warning. These were taken around the first week in February.


Two weeks….

have passed since I last wrote. The biggest thing to happen was this week I attended Stitches West. Fiber overload. Took a class on Free Form Knitting that was ok. Attended Market Thursday night and most of Friday. Saw lots of folks that I know from shops around here, met Ali McGraw and and drinks and caught up with Jo Ann Ranish. I think we only see each other at Stitches. I bought some mohair from Wagtail from Australia and a pattern and yarn to make the Ali hat, the one Ali McGraw wore in Love Story. Went to the meet and greet for Ravelry on Thursday night and saw the Rav team. Talked with Mary Heather. Only stayed a short time as I was wiped out.

Another week…

gone by. Today was a very emotional day with a meeting at IPC to try to give our Session our feed back as to what IPC should do going forward; rebirth our selves as something new and go forward with a PNC or Holy Death and move on as a flock to another church or go our separate ways. I think emotion won out over common sense with those who were there and think rebirth would work. Session decides on 2/15.

I started the February Lady Sweater on 2/1 and frogged it 3 times. I think now I’m finally on my way! Using Ella Rae wool in Sea Foam Green. It is not my first choice of color but it was the right price on Ravelry.

Looking forward to Stitches West in two weeks. Taking a Free Form Knitting class on Thursday and plan to attend the Market that night to scope out the vendors. Plan to attend Market Friday and Saturday.

We’re going to Santa Barbara at the end of February to see Carol and Bob.

In March I’m going to see Lin in HB for about 5 days. Then, I’m home 2 days and then off to Tacoma on the 24th to house/pet sit for the Russo’s. ┬áDon’t have any plans yet for the Summer but going to Maui in September for 2 wwks.
