Hexie power, activate!

Not feeling that well. Decided to crochet a bit.  Sitting on the couch with Food Network playing. While I wish I were feeling better physically, I know this yarn is goodness is wrapping me in warmth.

Update on Giving Art

Just a quick update. The dark blue hat (worked flat lower left of first pic) is being finished by Susan M. and another hat you cannot see in any photo is being finished by Patti S. So when you add in Shelly, her friend Susan, and me - you get the fabulous five! Shelly's working on two hats and finishing up either a cowl or a scarf. I'm working on finishing up a scarf (that I'm turning into a cowl). I also completed the BRIGHT orange and…

I’m not an activist

I just like yarn. I like warm things in winter. I like the tactile feel of working on something stitch by stitch. I believe in sharing and teaching. Sad, right? Next month (October), a girlfriend and I will be putting up a "Living Art" display as part of the Monsters & Legends UAF staff and student show at Arctic Java's gallery. Arctic Java is the coffeehouse located inside of the Wood Center. You need to go. Just to see the beautiful space. Or go to catch a…
