My Apologies

I have been away from this blog far too long. But at least I have been busy elsewhere; so many little projects begun and in varied stages of completion, including a cape








made of the most silky soft houndstooth with a silk charmeuse lining. I think I found the houndstooth suiting at Pacific Fabric last summer; the silk charmeuse was (let's all chime in together) A Find at Goodwill.










Last month or so I joined a Mini Cooper club and went on my first rally.


I was to go on another Mini event this weekend, which was held at Maryhill's Stonehenge on the Columbia Gorge, but last week I broke a toe and it is really painful trying to shift gears for more than a short trip at a time. So I missed out on the photo op here:







Sigh. I did finish my next pair of socks, a lovely soft bamboo wool blend in purple stripes They're a bit big, but my poor abused toe is quite happy and warm. I also dyed a couple of skeins of wool with Kool Aid and am waiting to knit it up and then felt it into some elf slippers...

oouuuchhhh! hope the pain is not too severe! and too bad, that you missed the "mini" adventure but there will be other great events. I like the socks and finding silk charmeuse at gw! Too bad, that we don't have any store like that here (or maybe it's better, since my stash is already pretty big :) )

I know all about broken toes!!
Well Goodwill is not what I want it to be fabricwise but I do find good things there sometimes.

Hugs
