Oops

I forgot to blog!  Things have been seriously busy here, as I work 2 full time jobs and a part time one until August 1st.  One of the things I’ve been doing is working on making a website for my studio – if you are interested, the link is in the sidebar to the right (scroll down a bit.)  That’s taken a great deal of my time over the last week, writing a proofreading, testing, and trying to imagine how someone else seeing it would view things!

I have been knitting on the Milkweed shawl by Laura Chau.

The pattern is easy yet not boring, just what I need right now – the little time I have been getting to knit is precious to me.  The yarn is hard and sproingy, like all Socks that rock, and the colorway is divine.

I also got my birthday present from my Mom (my birthday isn’t for 2 weeks yet.)  Our dining room, which I use as my waiting area,is the largest room in the house.  It’s also been the emptiest, because I haven’t had any furniture for it – so my Mom bought me this sideboard at an antique store.

I’ve since moved it away from that giant window.  Love those claw feet!  Sorry for the lousy picture quality – my camera is finally giving up I think.  Can anyone recommend a camera for me?  I want more control than I had with this one (Canon powershot) but I don’t want to spend a fortune either.
So there you go… that’s what I’m up to right now.  This morning I got my hair trimmed and colored – I’m still trying to grow it out, hopefully I will have long hair again someday!  I’ll try to write again soon, but who can say with my schedule – sometime this week!
