back and forth

My two lives. My late night/early mornings life of mad crafty energy, where my fingers itch to create and my mild mannered day life of teaching, biking, tennis and the love of my life!

So I'm knitting on my clapotis...but I am a bit disappointed with the blue I got from A very different blue. Very much an indigo, light denim blue. And not too soft. Someone got too carried away in increasing the intensity and color saturation when they worked on their yarn pic!

I may overdye it green. Or purple. Or a blue.

...and a Baby Bug. Just because.
You know Baby Bugs make the world go 'round.

I'm back to forth!

Went working on the forth. I love you, Mom!!

I've made and sent all over the world over 100 Sock Bugs!! I still don't tired of sewing these. Every one is really unique putting together the combinations of the gorgeous fabrics I get to spulrge on at the quilt shop.
I can't wait to be walking somewhere; anywhere! And see someone with one of my Sock Bugs, knitting. I love seeing blogs and pictures of Sock Bugs at work. If often don't know about it, until someone posts me and says 'I saw it here and wanted to check it out...' that I get to see! I love it.
Ah. I'm knitting again on the Clapotis. I'm not really happy with the yarn I chose, so I ordered a novelty boucle from Here it is: Oh, I wanted some bright raspberries or bright, bright red. But I guess I'm feeling I'm supposed to be more sedate at my age. I truly expect that attitude to fly out the window when I reach that magical age of 50 in a couple of years. lol.
