The Age Old Question

When I woke this morning I had the same question on my mind as when I went to bed. Will my second Aeolian be silk or zephyr? Silk or Zephur? Silk or Zephur? Silk or Zephur? Last night I finished row 22 of the Edging Set-Up Chart. Visible yarn choices later in the day…it’s 4am…

The Weekend plans…

When the heat wave broke this week I felt tremendous relief….ahh finally! One of the things we found out about last weekend at WoodyFest was that our young friend Rachel made a documentary film about her motorcycle trip to Maine last year. Rachel is 21 and a true free spirit. We saw her several weeks…

A short story memory

There was a time a million years ago, or maybe it was 15-18 years ago, that I wrote a short story. It was saved on a red floppy disk and stuffed in a drawer. There may be a paper copy somewhere in a box – or maybe not. The couple in the story lived outside…

I can’t stick with the rules.

Screw wordless Wednesday. My mind is whirling and in a panic – except when I focus on the knitting. Knitting in any manner. When I’m concentrating on a lace project all the troubles go away. In quiet moments I think about learning to dye yarn instead of solving the problems that exist. If I’m busy…

Real Music

While the MTV generation is zoned out on what’s happening in LA, let me tell you about some good music – music with integrity. One of our favorite Oklahoma summer events happens this weekend. Woody Fest! Folkies and music lovers in general from across the country descend on the little town of Okemah, Oklahoma to…

Self Inflicted

Blinding migraine… One scoop of ice cream is never worth the pain that follows the next day. var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src=’” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”)); var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-xxxxxx-x”);pageTracker._trackPageview();

Color me happy

Early July means crazy-making in the studio. Soap takes six weeks to cure, so I’m preparing for the fall shows. The bars I cut this morning are just so scrumptious that I had to show them off a little. The green might lighten up a little as it cures. Although I hope not much. This…
