"Weave, my mother. Weave, my child."


It's official' I am now a bonafide knit-blogger. I have cats and I am knitting Clapotis. I'd like to introduce you to Chairman Kaga and Chen Kenichi. You will now be mercilessly tormented with pictures of my kittens.

"Ania si Rosas Pandan"



I GOT SPOILED! Unbelievably spoiled. Check out the initial contents of my lace swap package. Everything was wrapped in sassy red tissue paper, except the yarn. The yarn came in a handmade calico bag, which is too cute for words!
The rolled up letter was a really sweet enumeration of the contents written with wit and warmth, and had the most beautiful picture of Saravati printed on it!




Look at all my goodies; Two (!) Fiddlesticks patterns, Peacock Feathers AND Flirty Ruffles, six ounces of Black Zephyr (DROOL! TOO DECADENT!) two handmade soaps (the sandalwood smells divine,) lucky no. 6 perfume(my favorite number, by the way,) Knitpicks Needles (I've been wanting to try those,) Knitpicks chart keeper (which is very classy looking and such a good idea,) some sour candies (freakishly delicious and sugarfree!) and some gorgeous purple beaded stitch markers (hands off, Emy.) Thank you so much, Tonni! You totally made my month, and it's been a pretty good month so far!

"Everybody gets high, everybody gets low, these are the days when anything goes"

Howdy, y'all. So, big announcement time. First off, I am not pregnant. I promise, I will tell you when that happens!

I am changing jobs. The time has come for me to leave commuknity. I have had a wonderful year, met so many great people, and learned a lot. It wasn't an easy decision to leave, but it was the right one. I am really doing this for me and my future. My next opportunity involves a lot of growth potential. Finally, I'm becoming a woman and doing something extremely positive for myself.

I am now a local yarn store co-owner along with Nathania and Sandi. We'll be opening our own yarn store specializing in in-house designs. I am very excited about this for there is much excitement to be had! I am coming into my own and becoming the Mistress of my own Destiny!
