What I want to do is finish knitting my legwarmers. MMM clownbarf acrylic best yarn ever. I was also told by my dearest sister that she lost the knitted cowl I made her for chrisukkah so I have picked out a yarn that goes with both her brown coat and her burgandy purse.
I am going to make banana choco muffins on Friday I hope they turn out delish.
I have bookmaking from 6-9 I am very excited, it’s the simple things really. I am learning some simple things to make. I have already made a little book and sent it to Claire. That makes me happy. I will be able to make books by myself! I just need to practice.

I just found this link via something and I am enthralled by the idea of filling up a blank book from beginning to end during the year. I feel like I have lost my artistic vision. (looking back on this statement makes me so sad!) I made a little tiki painting and it is so not me. Maybe I should try just to get into the studio an hour a day regardless of whether or not I do anything besides tidy up. I spend so much time surfing around the internet finding people who I like what they are doing but instead of taking ideas and inspirations from them it sort of just ends with me thinking “hmm I like that, I should try ….” I have a really neat square sketchbook that I started doing a similar thing in last year. I will go and dig it up.
I think that bookmaking class will really shake me up artistically and get me going again. I am also worried about it because it seems a little fussy, honestly I am not that attentive to details. It is good for me to get out of my element though.
I went to the church of craft on Sunday and it just felt so nice to have a bunch of people sitting around and working on something. I introduced myself to six people and talked to many more. It felt nice just to get out by myself and really make this town my own. I need to figure out why I can’t post photos.
It snowed so no one is venturing out for craft night. I am a little sad because I was so excited to see people and make dinner. I was so excited about the snow and now just 6ish hours later I am cursing it. I guess that is the way it works.

His stuff is very interesting.
I rang in the new years with my chosen family while knitting and watching the incredibles. The next day was spent watching all three of the LotR movies. I fully support that becoming a yearly tradition.
I am probably the only person who has never heard Coldplay’s album so I was very excited to see it at the library. I also got mary timony and lisa germano. I love the library. I also got Courtney Love’s published journal. It’s like a train wreck I had to see.
I have started working on the handspun shawl from

I got out of work early today. Now I don’t have to work until Sat I think that tomorrow I am going to go to the Post office and work on my secret tiki project. Don’t worry about it though, I will show you when I am done.
