A second one, started to give away but my girl begged me to keep it. So I gave it to her. My knitting efforts in the past mostly circled around me and she has all the rights to want a few knits for her own, too. And I must say I am flattered she likes wearing what I am making. This will change at some point, I guess. So I do enjoy it while it lasts.
And make one more Neighborly ;)
Since this little vest actually is knit in now time, being busy knitting it surely can't be the excuse for not writing here, or getting back to you who commented on the last Neighborly...
Life happened, mostly laundry it was, so my impression. Too little time for anything beside keeping it all running...
*We've been to see ARIMA SHINPEI'S WORKS at the Living Design Center OZONE last weekend, just beautiful! The postcard Dagny is holding is from the exhibition.
And if it wasn't enough that I already feel awful most of the times because I don't manage to write to you, Typepad with its fabulous update lately suggested me I should answer your comments online in the comments section to show that I care about my readers.
Phew, that really puts some pressure upon my shoulders. I already did have a bad conscience and now I am feeling even worse.
I will not complain how busy they made me when they switched the default address for answering comments from the commenter's email address to the comment itself and all my answers were going directly to my blog... My fault, I didn't look carefully. Good I discovered it eventually... what a relief I hadn't written anything embarrassing or too private in those replies.
But now there is the burden of giving the impression I wouldn't care about you because I do not keep the conversation on my blog moving, as they (Typepad) suggest to me.
Should that really bother me?
I confess I am no social networking person and don't connect to others via Twitter or Facebook. I guess all of that can be a lot of fun, but as long as a day is only 24 hours and as long as we must die eventually, I will spend as much time as I can not updating my various accounts. I will reply to your comments whenever I can but I will keep doing so mostly directly and not in public. Only if an answer is of general interest I will write in the comments section.
I am most definitely overreacting to the whole new Typepad with all its features around getting connected, increasing the number of readers, making everything quicker and easier and, not at last, creating the next blockbuster blog... After all this place was just meant to be for sharing my crafty endeavours. Nothing more.
And I am not half as concerned as I may sound, so don't take me too seriously.
And now on to this bunch of fingering yarns on my desk that are engaged in some stranded knitting...!
Have a good day!
PS: Yarn from stash, leftover Olympus make make from that beret and some Hamanaka Sonomono Slub I never knew what to make with.
