Brief Hello


I don't mean to repeatedly go AWOL on you guys.  I just got back into Pittsburgh from a nearly month-long stay in Minnesota where I tend to ignore my email, my phone, my computer, and my clarinet.

I continue to be knitting things I can't show you, but maybe after two more sweaters and a scarf I will return to things I can take pictures of.  That would make this blog a bit more exciting, right?  (I promise what I'm knitting isn't incredibly mysterious.  They're just samples for things that haven't been published by the designers yet, so I can't show you.  That's all.)  Of course, by the time I finish those three projects the school year will be starting up again and I will be back to clarinet-ing all day long.  Let's hope we don't have a repeat of last year's Fall semester in which I didn't knit a single stitch and didn't blog for months.  (How did I manage that?)

I leave tomorrow on another trip, which I expect will be entirely too much fun and incredibly exciting.  I'll tell you all more about it when I get back, but know this:  When I return, that corner of my apartment will be occupied by a brand new spinning wheel!  Yippee!!!  (I felt that this post lacked exclamation points.)

See you in a few! (Exclamation point.)

  1. Your wheel won't have to look at that sofa I hope.
    Travel safe!

  2. You're doing a much better job updating your blog than I. Where are you going on your next trip? I've been to a couple new favorite places this summer so I'm overloaded with inspiration. Now I'm at my parent's house in the Chicago 'burbs and it's much more mellow now. However, I'm crashing a knitting group next week which will bring the excitement level up a few notches! (exclamation point)

  6. Did you pack your clarinet? I hope so. I'm sure you'll have a chance to play it while off visiting.

  8. Nice place for a wheel: right by the sunlit corner.

    Also: what do you have framed on your wall? Is it a photo of me? ;-)

  9. I hope this goes fast. I can't wait to see what wheel you selected, and better yet, what fiber you are going to spin first.

  12. If I were you, I'd beware! That plant looks suspicious!

    It's great to see your empty flat! It's like a new skein of yarn... so much potential! (Obnoxious quantity of exclamation points)

    Just the other day I was enjoying a mellow walk on the beach in the hour before the crowds arrived, watching little birds scurry about, and I was reminded how much you'd enjoy it. In that vein, happy little animal thoughts to you!

    In the coming days, feel free to post a picture of a single knit stitch that you manage to squeeze into your busy schedule. Please include stitch markers to indicate your progress, though, and we will all rejoice with you.

  13. If I weren't ordering a wheel of my own in the very near future, I'd be jealous. Enjoy your wheel!
