april news

I can’t believe it’s already April! This was the easiest winter I’ve seen yet in the Keweenaw, but I still can’t complain about melting snow and early spring crocuses in my yard. With the new season comes some new musical and fiber arts happenings that I’m pretty excited about.

finishing

The theme in my studio this month has been finishing things.  In some cases, finishing is pretty straightforward.  I finished a long-term personal knitting project, the A Bit of Iceland blanket by Stephen West that has been on my needles since I returned from Iceland with the yarn last May. It was a really satisfying project, unlike many others that linger on my needles for months. I learned a new (to me) technique  for casting on and likened the whole experience to reading a good novel that you don’t want to end while also wanting to know how it ends.  In this case it ended up huge and toasty.

welcome

I’ve tried blogging once or twice, but it’s never been my forte.  I start strong, but then I begin to second guess myself and lose steam.  I’ll try to avoid that this time around by keeping it simple and sticking to the news.
