Progress


I have made definite progress, and would say I am about half way done with the living dining room. I of course could not resist the temptation to start arranging some of the furniture in the finished area. What do you think? These two chairs are some of the chairs that my parents brought to me. They were actually my first pieces of furniture ever. I am so happy to have them back. It makes my home feel like home. The first place that I had was of course a lot smaller than my current house. It was a tiny apartment in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, overlooking a courtyard. The walls were a soft linen white, the floors, a honey wood, and it got the softest filtered light, and actually when I think about it, my house reminds me of my first apartment. The light here is the artist's delight. It makes my yarn look glorious.





The other side of the room is not quite there. And once again a picture is worth a thousand words...














I did find the time to knit last night, and made some progress on my mother in law's socks.













I also had to start something else. Here is a peek at it. Soft, fuzzy baby alpaca, and the coolest pattern, (I am desgning it, and taking great note!) and of course it's a sock!

Hello, again. I used to buy yarn from you shop in Petaluma. You entered my head this morning so I jumped on line to see if had opened your store again, in your new town... thus the reason I found your blog. We have moved as well, but I went North! I am pleased to see all is well. Are you going to open your shop up again?

Dear Kerlina,

How are the children, and how are you liking your new area? Are you still teaching knitting? I love it here. Even though I miss the store tremendously, I do not think I will open another one. I am going to focus on teaching, designing, and writing.
Nice to hear from you.
