A Fast Faux Project

This week has been unbelievably stressful, what with the loss of two of Roanoke's own shining stars...I needed something mindless - but a bit challenging - to keep my hands busy, after I did a few bags in preparation for the two shows in September. So I started something that some might consider fool-hardy: a faux fur mobius cowl. It helped. It was fast, I needed to keep my mind and eyes on it (unlike socks which I can almost knit in my sleep, and have once or twice lately). It will be appreciated in the winter. I think I love it. Yarn is Paton's Moxie (two skeins of which I picked up at Tuesday Morning a few weeks ago). The pattern is Easy Mobius Cowl. I think I love it.

A Friday Drive-by

Just because I haven't been here for awhile, I thought I'd share a recent photo of the newest member of our family, Moji. He's come a long way since April, and we're pretty happy about that. Still something of a touch-me-not, he only comes to me for attention when I'm a captive do most kitties, he likes to invade the bathroom when I'm in it, and only will position himself beside the wall and me for serious petting sessions. Otherwise? He's not much on getting love. I figure he knows that I'm truly under his whims and biddings when he corners me there...anyway, rather than offer TMI, I'll share this - one of his favorite resting spots, the back of my sofa:

He's a cutie, eh?


I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
