For those of you that don't know me so well, lets just say I am not fantastic at being "Susie Homemaker". I hold down a fast paced job 45-50 hours per week, 30 miles from home. I'm not here...A LOT. My husband is Chef Tell, Joe Taxi, Mr. Fix It, and Magic Mike all wrapped up into one man. We have two teenagers that keep us hopping. This photo was from the first day of school 2012. Important day for us: it was Claire's LAST FIRST day of high school (Senior), and Cruz's FIRST FIRST day of high school (Freshman). Feels like they were both in diapers just yesterday...NOTSOMUCH!
In order to maintain my own sanity I plan to mete them out over the course of the week.
This Age of Brass & Steam Shawlette was also a quick vacation knit with my own hand dyed yarn. I Kool Aid dyed the yarn with Grape, Orange and Lemonade using mason jars in the microwave. FUN, FUN, FUN. Quick, instant satisfaction method of dying.
