New Home

20 03 2008

For those of you who followed the link on my LiveJournal, here’s my new blogging home.  No, it doesn’t have all the sparkles and bells and whistles that LJ has, but I find that I like the simplicity of the format and the relative “quiet”.

Today is Vernal Equinox Day here in Japan, so I have the day off.  It’s a gorgeous day, though still a little on the chilly side.  I’ve thought about taking a walk up to the park today, just to see what there is to be seen, though it does tend to get crowded on holidays.  I wanted to go out to the Aoidake Onsen, but damn them, they’re closed on public holidays.  What the heck is up with that?  That’s when people can actually go to the onsen!

Anyway, I’ve become fascinated by knitted lace (as if I needed one MORE craft thing to add to my list!), but I’ve promised myself that I’m not going to start any new projects until I finish the ones I’m currently working on!  Therefore, it’s 62 more rows until I finish the right sleeve of my Sahara sweater (pattern from StitchDiva studios).  I also need to finish crocheting the sleeves of my lacy sweater (free pattern from Lion Brand yarns) so I can put that one together and crochet the upper yoke.  Maybe I can get some of that knocked out today…
