I’m in! I’m in!

I have been unable to access my blog from home for weeks… so there’s a lot to catch up on.

Some highlights.

napalm!

hair (1)

It’s faded quite a bit since I did it two weeks ago (date of the photo). But it’s still pretty entertaining.

spa!

More photos in the flickr set.

knitting the sky

I’m about 3/4 of the way around the edging on my star chart shawl, Celestarium. Here it is before I started the garter stitch edging,

Other knitting… I interrupted the edging to make a quick pair of fingerless piano mitts for somebody who is moving to Wisconsin, and then I forgot to take a photo!

it’s snowing!

ayup.

And the State, in it’s everloving wisdom, uses leaf-blowers to move the snow around on the sidewalks,

And either the state or the city uses not one, but two plows to clear the path along the river… the path in the woods that doesn’t go anywhere.

This makes me wonder. And this also makes me wonder… the state has decided to invest in plastic trash cans. So we can all have identical rectangular cans. Because something was wrong with the old round metal ones. Or maybe they’re going to make a lot of money on them in scrap. Honestly, why?

I miss my round can. It was a subtle subconscious signal for “put trash here”, while the blue rectangular plastic can means “put recyclable paper here”. Now I have to pause and think… where does the paper go? Where does the trash go? These two things are the same size and shape. One is just blue and doesn’t have a plastic bag liner.

I did see some pretty things on my walk…

Bark blowing in the wind,

and I love looking at bark and branch architecture,

(white ash bark, black cherry bark that somebody’s been nibbling through, white ash branches, sumac clones)

and even though it’s rather stark, there’s beauty along the river, and in the old Stone Building,

Well, we’ve just had the “appetizer” part of the storm… the real deal should happen tonight. Stay warm, stay dry!

And if I’m absent, it is in part that I can’t get on the damned blog server.

    Come May I actually miss seeing the bare branch architecture that I was so intimately acquainted with from November – April… And on my list of bark “favorites” is shagbark hickory!
