a post worth a thousand posts...the SWEATER!



Oh man. I gots a lots to say. I gots a lots a lego to get building, I gots a lots a two year old to keep happy, and I gots a lots a baby to feed! Swimmin' in mammahood!

(side note - did you know you can order individual lego pieces? I just learned this and I am so excited about that! We lost a wheel the day we bought our last pack and It has been driving me crazy...who knew I could just go and buy it from the website for a grand total of 17cents!!!)

So cool that m'dme tired of smiling has written a post in my post...on friendship. Oh the post circle! Just want to say I agree with her, and have some thoughts now about it too. Firstly, I think when people work together rather than just hang out it is a good thing, like really putting heart into something...plus, I heard somewhere that a friendship is only worth keeping if one of you is learning from the other one (or you are both learning...) and its important to keep balance. Maybe that's what I need...balance! Oh, and I think there's also something to having a "gang" or a group of friends that love each other and work together. There's an energy when people get together as a group, that is different than one on one. Both are good, but its not often I find myself with a group of friends, that all enjoy each other's company...d'ya know?

I been doing Qi Gong in the mornings again. So. Good. I do the Micheal Tse version of "healthy living Gong". I have the three DVD's and periodically I pull them out. I have done a couple workshops in person with Michael Tse and a friend who is a teacher in his school. But I think the DVD's are OK on their own. I have found that having the DVD is good to do in the winter and when big M is not really ready to let me just do my own thing in the morning. This way he can watch the DVD too, and practice a long and its not so torturous for him. Also, I actually do it, cus its a limited time and I can conceive of just following along. The benefits of Qi Gong, its history and the joy of learning it are subjects for further posts...but I can say it is bringing me much joy and contentment...

OK, and now the grand finale! The sweater is DONE! Thank you, thank you, yes yes, I did it myself, no, no please stop gushing..I know, its gorgeous.



That's how I feel any ways, like I deserve a standing ovation! I wish I could spread this sweater over like, 20 posts, as that's what its worth to me. And to think I m using up all this crafty show-off-ability in just one post, is, well, sad. But that's how it is. I wish I could be like some out there who seem to post a new sweater, purse, back or outfit handmade every day! But no. From me you get one sweater, made from a pattern, in adorable crochet for babies and toddlers - in the "naturals" section. I loved the pattern and am so pleased as to how it turned out. I used a bamboo/wool blend as it is washable, warm, natural and so soft. (also cheap!) So, here it is, modeled by the handsome Emery... sigh, my baby, in the sweater...what is more lovely?

Oh, yeah. (there's more?) I am attending the calgary urban agriculture meet up tonight...should be cool. Will you be there? See the facebook group for details, come if you can. I'll post about it when I get back...growing stuff...yeah, I know - its so COOL!

That sweater is stunning! And really, you deserve to spread it out over numerous posts - I understand your enthusiasm. I don't have time these days to knit or sew very much either and I wish I could post new creative things all the time so the little bit I can get done is extra special.
