our household might be mildly obsessed with chevrons at the moment...

vk live

i learned...


two color knitting with both strands in one hand from the genius meg swansen -


- and yarn dyeing from the incomparable beth casey.

i saw crazy wonderful displays -



- and some excellent yarn bombing.


i may or may not have bought enough creamy wool alpaca for a jared flood knit-along with beigeberry and malaraky.

next year? yes, please!

starting over

as abby has so cleverly deducted from my flickr uploads, we've moved!




we're slowly pulling the new place together, and i have to say i'm in love. it's so good to come home here. we've moved less than a mile, but my new commute starts and ends with a beautiful view of the ocean - which we can see from several of our windows. and so much light! just heaven.



my homework for vogue knitting live next weekend - this, for a color knitting class with meg swansen and amy detjen. plus a dyeing class with beth casey, owner of lorna's laces! i can't wait!

see you there?

the edge of something

some time mid-week it dawned on me why i was feeling so awfully sad. it's amazing that we can carry things so viscerally - things that happened to us so long ago.




i was in new york city. my sister was in washington dc. it was by far the most terrifying day of my life - like we were suddenly slammed into some unfamiliar, violent new reality that, up to that day, we had only read about in newspapers - about places far, far away.


that reality never quite materialized at home - most of us shook off the dust, picked up the pieces, and moved on. but there are people in this world who live in constant fear, for whom such violence is a daily reality. today, please consider taking a moment to remember not only those who lost their lives on 9/11, but also those living through such tragedy day after day.

most days it's too easy to forget.
