Memo to Self:


Blog more frequently.

I mean it's not like I haven't had ample opportunity. Uni's been on Semester break, Goat's been away so I've been slobbin' around the bachelor lifestyle. No camera to distract me.

Actually, I think that's it.

This morning, after photographing piles of yarn for absolutley no good reason,
I realised not only how much I missed the camera, but also how fresh visual stimulus drives my blogging. Without it I just grind down til mute.

So:
an homage to the Queen of the Pile.
From top to bottom: Rowan Summer Tweed, Rubi + Lana 3ply (Clessidra), and Eki Riva Sport baby alpaca (Furry Goodness).

This alpaca scarf was one of the first things I knitted. I still love the yarn. It may be unparalleled in sheer drapeyness, softness and general lusciousness, but my god!, am I allergic to it or what?
As of tonight, it's frogged -reminding me all the while of all those ends painstakingly wound in while watching Mildred Pierce- (if you ever need motivation for steely-nerved pains-taking, that movie will do it! ), wound and then sent sailing off to a much deserved loving home! Which I'm very glad about.

Stay tuned for some rare Qiviut sightings! (link to Knitters Review...info is halfway down the page).

I don't think I could blog without my camera.

I shoot first, and decide what to say about it later.

You and me both. I think the cat has my tongue.

Mildred Pierce is one awesome movie. So is Sunset Boulevard. (can you tell I'm a total fan of the seedy underbelly of American life? well, yes, indeed I am)

Quivet? Did I hear quivet?
