A teaser for you all - shrug I made from Habu 100% cotton nerimaki slub. I love the thick/thin yarn and how it looks worked up. It is light and surprising warm. This piece is nice and drapey. It looks great with a turtle neck or, my favorite, a white shirt and jeans.

Keep Warm!

baby/puppy love

So today we shoveled out the driveway in the back...there must have been 2-3 feet of snow back there..ugh. I'll have to remember this time of year in July/August when we have the 101 degree 100% humidity days!!

Still trying to figure out what is next. most tech jobs I've looked at need you to lift up to 50 lbs. I can't do that anymore...ugh ugh ugh...

Well am working on the long awaited etsy store. stuff won't sell before it's posted anymore...there is no one around to buy it off the needles!

Am almost done with the shawl I started. That yarn to the left is what I am using. The color is really nice and it is warm. I've sorted out my paypal account. finished the baby bottle covers..those turned out really cute.

Tomorrow is another day. Let's see what I can finish and post.


if anyone has any ideas on next steps am all ears!

Room with a view

Early yesterday evening...SNOW and more on the way...the only upside to have been made redundant..I don't have to commute in to work. I work from home looking for work! Am also doing some on-line training. Am really just trying to figure out what to do next. Well so far I've no hits on my for now will just have to keep searching and thinking. I do miss some of the peeps in the old company. Working at home is very different...there is no one to talk to or bounce ideas off of.

Will try to update this blog more often now that I have free time.

Just thought I'd upload a picture of my favorite view. I work on the 50th floor of a building that has the best views of the harbor. Unfortunately my office is a box within a box so I don't get to enjoy the view very often! Maybe that is a good thing. I don't think I'd get any work done.
