Putting the Year to Bed

And what a year it's been. I don't care to elaborate on the stresses and strains that have populated my life over the last 12 months. Fortunately, there have been good things too.

Careerwise, it hasn't been bad at all. I have traveled to several cities in the US and Canada to teach camps, lead retreats, give workshops, talk to knitting guilds, and meet wonderful knitters everywhere I go. We cover the world, folks!!

I have been a part of books, various knitting clubs, had a design published in Twist Collective, posted on their blog, and published a few of my own too. I have taught lots of classes at Twisted and elsewhere around Portland and gotten to know some of the very talented knitters and designers here. I feel welcomed and at home.

Next year is right around the corner! So much to look forward to. I promise to deliver some especially delectable new things to knit over the next 12 months. Please stay tuned for the latest and greatest.

And now, having just returned from my sweet second home, Vancouver B.C., let me give you a few parting shots..




These three pictures show a very windblown me in Jericho Park in Vancouver on a winter's day, just a few days ago in fact. The last picture contains a well camouflaged heron hiding in the brush by this beautiful lake. It was a lovely day for a walk, but br-r-r-r-r, really cold and windy.


Burt and I wish you an open hearted, warm, joyful and fulfilling year to come! May we all help spread the love!

Happy New Year, Sivia!

I enjoyed meeting you and loved making your moebius cowl this year. Hope to get over to Twisted to study lace knitting with you.

May you be showered with blessings this year to the equivalent of the delight you are giving others. That would be lots.

Happy, happy Sivia! Hope many lovely things happen in this new year. I am wearing your Moebius cowl right now as it is chilly in Seattle - and I love it...
