Catch Up!

Phew -- sorry I vanished for a bit. Dad probably thought I'd stepped into a vortex in Sedona and vanished into a parallel dimension. Alas, nothing that exciting. What really happened is that I got slammed with a couple projects with quick deadlines -- horrible part, I can't really even blog about them (yet?).

Anyhoo, Sedona was fabulous, but I haven't yet offloaded and sorted through all the pictures. Later this week -- I promise.

In knitting news, I finished the sample socks for Anastasia and shipped them off to Kollage. I'm not as thrilled with them as I'd like to be -- oh, the pattern is great and the yarn is wonderful; I'm just not sure how thrilled I am with my execution this time. Oh well.


Pattern: Herringbone Rib Socks, designed by Anastasia for Kollage Yarns -- not yet available
Yarn: Kollage Yarns Luscious in colorway Pewter, 3 hanks
Needle: Addi Turbo 2.25mm 40"
Mods: Aside from pattern errors, none

I do like the pattern, a lot. It's designed for a guy, and it's very simple and guy friendly. The rib pattern takes a few rounds to get going, but it's intuitive from there on. And, of course, living in Tucson, I love me a great wool-less cotton sock yarn.

Oh, and a couple more Ss:

S is for Seuss
Or Seuss-ish. Every time we walk by this house (it's on our evening walk route), I think of Dr. Seuss. Remind me I need to take a picture of a palo verde that looks like Grinch fingers.

S is for Sanctuary
It's the kind of place that (not to sound too much like Yogi Berra) if you didn't know it was there, you'd never know it was there. There are no signs on any of the main roads or side streets telling you where to find it. In fact, it's down a dirt road and the first sign you see alerting you to its existence is the one at the gate. And even that one you can miss.

It is a lovely, tranquil place with breathtaking views and a great little multi-faith chapel. Behind the chapel is an outside sanctuary which faces due east and hosts a sunrise service every Easter. So, some pictures of a hidden gem (and the beautiful landscape that surrounds me every day). Of course, you can embiggen (a Wendy-ism) them with a click.

Pardon me, but "embiggen" is most decidedly NOT a "Wendy-ism." :-)

I do not know who started using this non-word, but it was not me.
