I'm back in the bookkeeping business these days.
All the hours at the computer make it hard to sit down and write here, but I know that once again, it's the only way that I stay in touch with come folks.
Been such a hot summer here in Portland, like the rest of the country. At least the evenings are cool. Of course, this doesn't stop me from knitting with wool. I've started a local knitting group on Sunday afternoons that's taking a little while to get on it's feet, but I figure as the weather gets cooler, I may have more members. I miss the regularity of my old group in Boston. As the one who is organizing this one, I really have to be there every Sunday. It does commit me to getting out of the house, and right now the air conditioning is certainly worth it!
I've been making a couple of felted bags every weekend. My previous obsession was socks, but I suppose because I'm not wearing socks in the summer, that romance has cooled a bit.
There are so many yarn shops here in Portland, but the money is low to buy new stash. Fortunately I have a lot of older stuff to work with. Buy when you can, save when you must. I'm not sure I should be known for that quote, but I'm afraid that's pretty much how I live. Everybody's got somethin'.
