Hermit-ing with Julia Child
Here I am! I'm blogging "hermit-style" just to let you know that I haven't moved (god forbid!) or gone into hiding (does sound nice). I AM feeling like a hermit these days, though. I've been trying to finish up my new design for the upcoming One Skein Wonder book by Judith Durant and, since I'm due to mail it out in less than 2 weeks, it's really down to the wire. I have many new pictures to upload to the Amanda Hat Gallery and also some other knitting and spinning related news.
I'm WAY behind in reading blogs so I hope you won't hold that against me. I'll be able to go back and read them all soon. Promise.
I have to say that, since reading Julia Child's "My Life in France", I am obsessed with the kooky chef. I can't believe what an interesting life she'd lead and how wonderfully refreshing she was! I HIGHLY recommend reading the book. I've gone so far as to borrow DVDs of her early cooking shows from the library to watch on the laptop while knitting this design. It's really a very nice arrangement! I'm not only more motivated to get my knitting done, but also to cook more delicious meals for the guys! It's a win-win, don't you think??
I want to publicly congratulate my hubby, Ian, for being almost 2 months SMOKE-FREE!!! He's doing so well and, although it's been very difficult on our family as well as on him specifically, I think it was the best thing to do and he's not only feeling better, but looking years younger, too. Yay, honey!!!
Well, I should be off. I'm going to the local elementary school tonight to register Ben for kindergarten. Ahhhhhh! Hopefully, I won't snivel and be all mushy while I'm handing in all his papers...all 700 of them...well, not THAT many, but close. My baby off to kindergarten...it's very traumatizing, I must say. Wish me luck!
More knitting news and lots of pictures soon!!!!
