Is it weird that my heart literally started beating faster at the thought of staying up as late as I wanted, knitting?

Thursday, October 14, 2004

Yes, I've been gone a while. Househunting and moving will do that to a person and her blog. But it hasn't kept me from creating. I've been keeping life simple, and so letting some things go to keep stress levels down. Blogging isn't as high a priority to me as actually making the stuff I blog about!

Once we get settled in, and little things stop breaking down, I'll be setting up my own little studio in our basement. Yay! Until then, spinning and knitting have taken priority over dyeing. That sort of drives me just a little bit crazy, since I have about 4 oz of Finn wool, and a pound of a silk/Merino blend just sitting in boxes, all naked and waiting to be painted. Yikes, my heart beats faster just thinking about it. It's a good thing I have other projects to keep me going, like a Christmas shawl for my dear mum, and a sleevless sweater for my first-ever nephew, due in couple of weeks. We'll also be getting a new digital camera soon, so I can take good pictures of my on-the-needles stuff, as well as my completed items.

It's good to be back, and to be sharing this excitement again!
