Things I think are fantabulous.

Despite my hot water woes, there is much to be thankful for. Here are a few things that I think are fantabulous.

1. A brother in law who will knock a hole in the wall of the studio and replace it with a nifty French door. One who will fly to Maryland just to drive one of your cars back to Minnesota. One who will spend dozens of hours scraping sludge off your floors, and is happy to help you.


2. A coat rack. I've lived for years with no coat rack in the studio. It's nice to have one. My purse feels right at home.


3. A jar of paintbrushes, begging to be used.


4. When spring comes early to Minnesota, and you can go for a walk in shirt sleeves on a Sunday afternoon in March.


5. Birch trees. I missed them.


6. Seeing colorways everywhere. Right here, on this old birch filled with woodpecker holes, is Maple Vanilla:


See it? Here, I'll draw you an arrow:


I like to take the long way around.


(This blanket picture came from our rockin' Flickr gallery of finished projects.)

7. Giant fungi with velvety undersides.



8. Numbered lists.

9. Friends who knit you things and send care packages (I already drank most of the coffee and ate all the candy, both of which totally hit the spot). But these will last forever:


No, you can't have them. They're mine, all mine.



Coming soon.

You know what else will be fantabulous? When I have hot water. That will be super duper fantabulous. I'm sure it will help me speak standard English with more aplomb. Next time you read this blog, it will be full of thees and thous and forsooths. So there.

Your brother in law looks like such a sweet person. I guess sweet isn't a compliment for a guy, but anyway. Glad things are lookin' up.

Hope that plumber comes through soon! Love the mitts, very nice cables, like how they are off to one side of the hand. Beautiful sunny sky, too.

Love to see how it's progressing, getting it all together just like you want it to....

By the way, I think I must be in a bad way. The moment I saw those beautiful mitts, I had the pattern name in my mind. Pitiful, pitiful.

Well said. I never thought I would agree with this opinion, but I'm starting to view things from a different view. I have to research more on this as it appears quite interesting. One thing that is unclear to me though is how everything is related together.
