There is another thing that I have been doing.....

This is Gibson, designed by Norah Gaughan, who has always been one of my favorite designers... To see how it (I HOPE) will look when done see here  that is a ravelry link, so you can see how it goes together.  This is the first time that I have done a top down sweater and I have to say I love it.  I can actually try it on and see how long it is and stop when I think it is right as opposed to guessing.

This has gotten me started looking for top down in Ravelry thinking I want to do another one.  It has gone together really quickly and I love the color.  This was yarn I had in my voluminous stash and is a bit off gauge, but it is working out ok and I am happy so far.  It is on US 10.5 needles, which I normally feel are broomsticks but it was worth it because it is FAST!

Romeo got a present

This tunnel got left in the recycle area and I thought it was another playtoy for Tinta.  Anything to give her more ways to exert herself.  So I brought it into the studio and put it on the floor.  Tinta likes it, but someone else loves it and when he is there no one argues with him over whose tunnel it is...

Summer in the city - or where I have been when not here....


Even Pigeons like street chalk

Those shoes HAVE to hurt in 15 minutes... but I guess her pride will keep her from mentioning it.


some red some black, not sure there is a pattern here but I love the idea


I love it that in addition to a sort of kennel he has a RUG to sit on.

Do all owners eventually look like their dogs or only NY couples because we walk so much?

reasonable shoes and she looks cool

No matter where you live there are evenings under the sky

Tom Stoppard's Arcadia at 20

This article in the New Yorker, about Arcadia, got me thinking again about one of my favorite plays.  I take every chance I get to see it performed and I love it every time.  Some of my all time favorite lines are from this play.  No pictures but a good reference...
