Whoa---I just realized how long it's been since I posted. And a lot has happened, at least in my knitting life.
The creative juices have been flowing---you could call it a flood---and several designs have poured out: all available on Ravelry or in kit form at Peaches-Creme. I've got the Bluebell Lace Capelet, the Button Beanie, and Duet happening. I've gotten very good response from these designs/patterns on Ravelry and from Flo at Elmore-Pisgah.
And in my personal life, Allie has a show up at Beauty Shop Cafe until April 15: some of the portraits she's done plus new collage/drawings that are wonderful. The opening was this past Friday night, and there was a very good turn out of friends and neighborhood people. Jon, who runs the cafe, is terrific, and hosted a very nice opening with delicious cheeses, fruit, and wine. I'll definitely be back there to try their grilled-cheese-to-order.
Only a few more weeks until we visit Jon and Rebecca in Charleston! Can't wait.
