Eye Candy Yarn!

I'm a novice knitter who believes it's worth investing in good quality yarn even as a beginner. I have a stash that could possibly keep me busy for a lifetime. This scarf is one of my first projects done years ago with Collinette's Prism in "Monet" now discontinued. Winter = knitting!

Winter Greens

During my walk today, I could not resist gathering small eucalyptus and winter berry branches from the ground, free gifts of nature left by the passing weekend storm. With a little imagination, one can become quite creative when there seems to be more time than money around.

Janus, the Roman god of beginnings, challenges us to think about time and the risky process of change in a new direction!
