About 12 years ago...

Ahhhh.... #nyc I think in 2001! Very baby faced here! @jamesred8 this is when I would of met you!!!

About 12 years ago, this photo was taken in New York City.  It was close to Christmas time and it was my first trip to Manhattan to spend a month with my best friend John.  This is us at some fancy restaurant called Tao which all I remember had a giant Buddha statue in the restaurant.

John found this photo of the two of us recently and just seeing it just makes me smile and think of all the adventures the two of us have had over the years, especially the adventures we had on this trip 12 years ago.  I had Christmas in NYC, it snowed on Christmas eve, I went on a helicopter trip and saw the Statue of Liberty from the air and ate Belgian fries near St. Marks place with John.  Such good times!!!

Taking care of business...

I have been missing in action from this blog of recent times.  My life as a curator has taken over with my new gallery space being completed and about to be relaunched!  There has been many 12 hour days, lack of sleep but also much excitement.  You can check out what we are doing over at

I've also been looking around my projects recently and really need to 'take care of business' and finish off some things!!!

Here's a recap of what's on the needles at the moment and what I need to finish before the end of the year.

#knitting I think my hands are starting to get a bit sore!!

The Crazy Cat Lady coat.  I have completed the two fronts and almost finished the back.  The sleeves are still to come but I think getting this finished before the end of the year is pretty achievable.  This project has been taking forever.  It is super big and unfortunately not one of those projects that you can take around with you!  This baby uses up close to 40 balls of yarn.  I am realistic that I am probably not going to be wearing this coat until next winter.  You can find out more about this project via Ravelry

My studio sweater is coming along! Bless knitting in the library at lunchtimes like a nerd!!!!

My studio sweater.  Gee, this project has just been sitting there.  I totally got sidetracked by the crazy cat lady coat that this poor little sweater is sitting there with a sleeve to go!

My sock knitting is a bit #sockmonkey inspired....

My two-tone socks.  Second sock started!!  I think that this project will be finished this week.  I also think that I shouldn't start any other socks until those sweaters are off the needles!

What is it about knitting that makes you start so many different projects?!!!  I really need to start taking care of this knitting business!
