oh nostalgia

That was an unplanned absence! I just got busy, and didn't have much of an urge to write until today. Besides, it seems like half the world is off on holiday right now. I wish I was still on holiday! I'm pining for the seashore, and I know it will be a long time before I can go back. As a bit of nostalgia, here's a photo from our honeymoon last fall.

I have been busy knitting and working on patterns. This set of cuties is awaiting just one more member. They're all going to a friend's mom, who wants them to give away as baby gifts. I hope whatever new moms and babies get them will love them to bits!

I also knit up Owen, a super cute little owl for my friend who's moving back to Portland soon. We'll all miss her crazy sense of humour, her bizarre and funny stories. I have some great vidoes from our all-night retro girly sleepover last weekend, some of which are for mature audiences only! I've been too lazy to edit them yet, but I might put one or two of the cleaner ones on flickr. It was a lot of fun, and reminded me of summer camps as a girl guide. Oh nostalgia!

Your little critters are so lovely! And Owen is delightful! I am a crocheter, but i am taking beginner's knitting lessons, specifically so that i can #1-make a baby sweater for my granddaughter (i hope i learn before she is an adult! ;) and #2-so that i can make some of your lovely patterns into a child's delight (and mine too!) :)
