This week I reknit the Fleece Artist Fundy National Park yarn flat-topped hat in new modifications. The top is no longer flat.
I also finished the Fleece Artist Greenwich Dunes National Park yarn neck warmer, and am halfway through knitting the wrist warmers.
Aside from knitting, I’ve been organizing and planning knitting projects. I’ve been researching how to combine David Allen’s “Getting Things Done” and bullet journaling. Some serious project planning happening. Check out these videos…

Checked out Assiniboia Gallery’s “Trains” exhibit yesterday. Great show! Some lovely work in a wide variety of styles. They also have a couple of small Rod Charlesworth pieces for sale as well, but they are not part of the exhibit. I love Rod Charlesworth’s style.
Spent last Saturday at a music concert at the local university. It was a modern and contemporary music concert by Barbara Pritchard and Rose Bolton. It was really interesting. I’ve never really been exposed to that type of music before. It reminded me a bit of atonal music, but it was better. (I’m not a fan of atonal music.) It was very good, and I (and the people I went with) could see applications for it right away. So funny. Hubby is a movie buff and saw the applications for it in the movie industry. My friend is a family therapist who saw therapy applications right away. The 15-year-old who went with us confessed to being scared in the middle of one piece (!). And I was just mesmerized. The theme was “Fire” and all the pieces related to fire in one way or another. I felt like I was by the campfire or a forest fire, and warm for the first time in ages! It was a fascinating body of work.
This week we had our wedding anniversary. We headed out for a drive in the nearby countryside and enjoyed the scenery. We went for a short walk by a lake. Stopped in a small town at the local bakery for drink, snack, and conversation with the locals. Came back to town just in time to stop at a favorite restaurant for supper. A lovely day.
Met someone in the grocery store the other day who was curious about my ‘craftwork’ and wanted to know if I would show it to him. I assured him I would be here at least the winter, and would be delighted to share my work with him. To all my readers, if you want to come talk crafts with me, I am available. I haven’t gone anywhere and won’t be until next year sometime. Just use the contact form on this site, or give me a call.
