What a night!

My recent move has allowed me to walk to work, which is great for a number of reasons, but not last night! Despite a fairly well lit street, I stubbed my toe on one of the seams on the sidewalk and fell forward on the cement. I spent 4 hours in the ER, from beginning to end, to make sure that I had not fractured my hand or knees. Luckily there were none, but I am staying home from work today to recover.

This seems like the perfect opportunity to find a "one day" project. So, I think I will go find a small amount of hand dyed yarn and knit. Working with beads would have been my first choice, but I don't have enough mobility in my right hand to stitch today. I should be able to just rest and knit. I will post my project later.

I still cannot fingure out why I can't log in to Blogger like I used to, using my Google Account. I always end up with a blank box when I sign in. I always get to my account in a very round about way. None of my links work either, like spell check. I wish I could find an email address or 800 number for tech support.

I'm Back!

My move went pretty smoothly. I love my new space! The roughest part was bringing everything up to the third floor!!! I have taken my time unpacking and getting the house set up. This weekend I spent time in the area for my studio, getting my extensive book collection unpacked and in the book case. Man!!! I have way too many books! Can anyone relate to me? LOL!

For all of my yarns, I found this wonderful storage system at Target. It consists of wire grids that snap together in cube shapes. I designated one whole wall for my storage of yarn and cloth.

For Christmas, I got a DVD titled Freeform Knitting by Colleen Davis. I really enjoyed it and will definitely use it as a resource to bring my knitting to the next level. Meanwhile I need to finish a few other projects.

In 3 1/2 weeks I will be on vacation in Bennington, Vermont studying with Joan Schulze. I can't wait!!!
