I am an episodic blogger. Not that I really mean to be that way. It just happens. I post happily, whenever I do, but then days go by, and sometimes weeks, without a serious post, apart from my weekly color post on Sundays. The days, and weeks just seem to roll away from me...
I am having a great summer with good knitting, designing and dyeing luscious colors, lots of fun with the children going to the water park,dealing with an occasional virus, sewing darling summer dresses for myself mind you, going shopping, homeschooling, and going back to school to add a degree to my collection of degrees, a degree in interior design!
I guess I do believe in living to the fullest! This last year,as a matter of fact these last 3 years have been a challenge for me, with my miscarriage in February probably being the hardest, but I feel that I have learned so much about who I am, and what matters to me, and of course maybe simply that I matter.
I hope your summer is as good as mine. Why don't you share with me what you are doing?

Next weekend, Mr. SockPixie and I will be heading to Maine for a great weekend, just the 2 of us! I have been daydreaming about the coast, the beach, the sea, the seagulls so much that I created a collection of yarns inspired by the coast.
I have never seen Maine, so all my Coastal thoughts were memories of my vacations along the Normandy Coast in Deauville and Trouville.

Here is a lovely painting of Deauville follwed by my Tides Colorway.

I hope you enjoy the Coastal collection

Out of Africa

This week we are going to Africa. The book and movie Out of Africa was my inspiration, and somehow I felt that solids were the only possible choice to reflect the depth of the colors of Africa.Enjoy the Out of Africa Collection !
