Where I've Been

About a month and a half seems to be the pace at which I can handle blogging these days. The house/garden/snail war is stealing my knitting and blogging mojo. I'm still here. Just not as tied to the computer as I used to be which is both good and bad. Anyway, here's some pictures from the last month and a half of so. Enjoy...

In February, there was a book signing and Stitches... Both of which I forgot to take my camera to. Duh!

Lauren and Nell

Me and the fabulous Lauren Groff.

Stitches- Malabrigo Puppets

Finger puppets from Malabrigo

BMFA- Silk Thread II- Muddy Bottom Breakdown

Silk Lace from Stitches- Someday I will knit lace...

Miss Babs- Sock Yarn- Nell

Miss Babs Sock Yarn in the color Nell. Tapmouse was Nice enough to make sure I got some!

KA Needle Set

A new KA needle set. They have a swivel join!

In March, we moved. You've seen all that. And I'm trying to repress memories of said chaos.

In April, my little sister came out for my big sister's baby shower.

Sally- Tatoo Onesie

Big Sis with the tattoo onesie

Sally- Abra looks on

Little Sis looks on as Big Sis opens gifts

Sally- Cupcakes

There were cupcakes. Yum!

Tasting at Tulocay

Then off to Napa to taste some wine. (Not Big Sis, of course!)

That's about it. We ordered furniture. But until it's ready in July, I leave you with a picture of our family room.

House- Temp Furniture

They are surprisingly comfortable!

Ha! I went through a brief period of time with Adirondack chairs as my only furniture too. They are comfy with a little cushion on the back. =) Glad to see you're settling in!

Well at least you've had a good couple of months (mind the chaos of moving...). I really want some of those chairs we haven't anything for the backyard right now.

I think it's a strange coincidence that we both ended up near oceans, love a good wine, have houses that need major decorating help, and developed a love for knitting. Knitting lace is much easier than defeating evil feather wallpaper. I'm jealous you made it to Stitches - but I went to MD sheep & wool, so maybe we're even.
