I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

Red Parka weather

Fall is rolling back in again. A crisp cool is in the air — but not so cool that we need a working furnace (thank goodness).

Autumn Blaze maple
Red is barely touching on our young Autumn Blaze maple (right) while its older cousin blushes a bit stronger.

So it was only fitting that a Blogtoberfest blog called Red Parka Diaries caught my eye today. (Even though it's technically spring for this blogger in Australia.)

Jen is crafty gal who appears to enjoy quirky art and photography. After reading about her recent adventures, much of her life is what I'd like mine to be like at age 34, too. The saturation and unique crops of her photography catch my eye. And her whimsical illustrations make me smile.

This art print reminds me of my sister Trisha, who collects elephants. Girly is getting married this spring and I have a shawl to knit for her. And I got some gorgeous yarn to play with yesterday. But more on that will come later. For now, I have a baby hat costume to finish!
