Why, yes, sweetheart, there is.
I’d like to thank you, Nadia, Rebecca and Jane for encouraging me to write, Rebecca for offering to share her favorite log and to go to a museum exhibit entirely devoted to ice, and Nadia for interviewing an origami enthusiast on my behalf. I had no idea what to say. (And yes, Nadia, I will write it all up.)
I’d also like to thank everyone who read what I wrote, especially Jane (who always comments), and the lovely woman at silkandwool.eu, who shared a wonderful pattern and whose blog apparently directs people here to stare at weird thing I did with it. You won me with the tagline to your blog: “I knit so that I won’t kill people.” How true. And for those unfamiliar with the bowels of WordPress, every little flag it displays from Singapore, Belgium, Ukraine or France warms my heart.
I guess I’ll keep writing. I’m waiting for War and Peace to show up in the library shipment tomorrow so I can share my all-time favorite (imaginary) party. It involves bears, at least in my memory. I had no idea I was so deeply interested in bears until I began this blog. I’ve learned so much. Possibly more than I wanted.
