winter girls

I've spent five minutes debating the vanity of posting a photo of myself, but I think I've got my argument straight: Sadie is in it. There is a general lack of photos with the two of us together so I am indulging. Also, my last post was entirely for Jay and I don't want to neglect the fabulous little girl in my life who was so fun to be with this weekend, even if we had to pile on loads of winter clothing for a trip outdoors. Oh, and the TVO Kids hat isn't so much a staple of mine (it's downright blasphemous, being a knitter and all) as it is swag Jay got the other day and Sadie's choice for me.

It would seem that there's not much "making" going on, but I have been busy with my sweater for the class I'm taking at Knitomatic. Ragdoll and I have been making headway and I can't believe how much I've got done (proving that taking a class is the only way I'll ever finish a big knitting project). On other creative fronts I plan to donate a piece to this event/great cause, and I'm working on a submission to the wee space at this shop in Vancouver. But with my full-time work at the fullest tilt I can imagine and Jay working furiously towards a show in Chicago I'm just trying to keep my mind functioning and our little family fed and smiling.

At least there's lots of inspiration out there: Loop, Egg Press, Lucy Jane Batchelor and Thornback & Peel.

Slutty knitting one day and sweet Sadie the next. Clearly you are a complex woman! I guess I'll have to check back here more often to see what you're up to... Becca

I think my sister-in-law's girlfriend is showing at that shop in Vancouver right now (I also think it's owned by an ex-girlfriend of a friend of ours). Small world, no?
