It's a Wonderful Life

You all get your wings. Thank you all so much for your thoughts on my situation. Bloggers is good people*! Special thanks to Sally for her comment on the Stash and Burn Podcast.

P.S. Has anyone seen the Orphanage? There is a scene where a prim medium is inspecting a house and someone tells her that the cops would like to observe. She says (according to the subtitles) “Cops? Cops is cool.” I’m pretty sure it wasn’t meant to be funny but I just about died. It might be this months’ “I. Drink. Your. MILKSHAKE!”

Hi everyone–thank you so, so much for all your comments on my last post. I’m doing okay, just trying to figure a lot of things out. I’m torn between finishing graduate school (which I sort of loathe) and devoting myself to the fiberous life I clearly love. It’s so easy for me to easy for me to be totally consumed by design, knitting, spinning, weaving, etc. Not true of Foucault, quantitative reasoning and literature reviews. I’ve never quit a thing in my life (probably a bad thing, right?) so this it’s difficult for me to even think about leaving this goal behind. Anyhow. It’s rough being in your mid-twenties. When I was younger I always thought that 25 meant a convertible and braces. I thought shiny metal braces were really, really cool, like tooth jewelry.

I have been knitting, Currer, which I mentioned in the Stash and Burn episode (46!) and a secret design project (I’m answering to a very, very prestigious boss). Also whipped up a Rockefeller Cardigan for the store. I actually have to get to the store right now, so I’ll just leave you with a few pictures, there are more details on Ravelry and more to come–this pattern was a trial to get through, but I think it was worth it in the end.

Oh, I’ve been spinning too! I’m also pricing out rigid heddle looms and getting more and more into crochet. Do I even need to bother with a pro and con list…?

Blargh. Sunday, Mar 2 2008 

It’s March. I’m back from Stitches West. It was super, super fun. I’ll have pictures and stories soon, but you can also listen to Stash and Burn #46 to get a sneak preview, I co-hosted! It was so awesome to hang out with Nicole and Jenny, total giggle-fest.

I’ve had a few major life changes in the past month. I’m in a new apartment, a quirky 1920s number in Northampton, very cozy and close to work. I’m a single lady these day, on good days I feel like Amelie and on bad days I feel like Liz Lemon, which is still pretty good I suppose.

All sorts of deadlines are whizzing by me which leaves little time for blogging (the guilt!!) but I promise, I’m working on some stuff I’ll be happy to share as soon as I get the chance!

Love,

CR
