Going Green

It must seem as though I've abandoned this blog. But I like to think of it as just a long sabbatical. A lot has happened in my life. For one thing, I moved. This is exciting because now I've got my own craft room! It's a little porch that gets a lot of sunlight. Consider these the "before" shots because I plan to paint it & spruce it up a lot.

It's not much, but having any sort of space for my art is really exciting. I was also away in Africa for about 3 weeks which was an all around life changing experience. You can see my pictures from that trip on my flickr account. But for the trip I splurged on a new digital camera which should mean nicer photos on this blog too. For example...
I love this camera & it's made me want to play with photography more again.

In all of this busylifestuff, I had also taken a knitting sabbatical of about 2 months! TWO MONTHS!!! But, of course, once I picked it up again about a week ago I was instantly addicted again. I finished the Bonsai Tunic from Spring 2007 Interweave.
I used Karabella Yarn in Aurora "Green Leaf". It's a much heavier yarn then the pattern calls for, but it's what I had in the stash. Now it'll be a suitable layer for winter too. But I loved knitting this & I love the way it looks on. Our new kitty, Rosca, approves.
I've also become quickly addicted to Ravelry. It's like a way to fine tune your knitting addiction.

Anyway, now that things have settled down a bit, I hope to get this blog back in gear with tons of inspiration.
