Some things that I learned this week …
Krampus … Wowzer! Who knew (?!?) And yet, I feel I should have … Those German’s sure knew how to keep their kids in line. None of THEIR nursery rhymes/fairy tales have a (watered-down, politically correct, Americanized) base/foundation in anything that WE were raised with … So, now I know what my Christmas cards will look like for next year! (I’ve already asked for my order … Thank you to the wonderful homemade art and talent, Flying Groundhog!!!)
I’m glad I don’t live in the Indian Ocean and/or parts of the Pacific Ocean! While I love me some sun and warm, tropical climates … if I had to share space with these bad boys – I’d be arrested for shooting off fire arms! But, the seafood-lover in me wonders what these crab legs would taste like?!? All-you-can-eat goes off in a crabs-gone-wild direction!
While most of my coworkers know that I don’t LOVE country music … I like this group! (And most things A Cappella…) They have a true gift!
Cable knitting does NOT come naturally for me. I’m trying to knit a lightly cabled hat (yep … A HAT!!!) That’s supposed to be a ‘quick-knit’ for all you non-needle-clackers out there. I’ve ripped it back three times already … Aaarggh! (No pattern photo, but it’s from this great book that I purchased at Knit Picks.) But I will persevere!
Yep. That’s what I’ve learnt! Studio news has me cleaning and packaging (THANK YOU internet shoppers!!!), while I work my way back to producing. Next up on the list: Restocking spoon rests – with a special request or two; more flamed pendants; and I want to play with sandblasting irid patterns … I have an idea or two (thousand +) ….
