Still Here, Less a Working Camera
Speaking of knitting projects for Oliver, I have finished 4 of the six squares for the Rocketry Blanket pattern. Of course, I don't have a camera so there are no pictures to show my progress. So, until I have a working camera again, you'll just have to use your imagination. Also on the knitting front I am one button band and five buttons shy of finishing a cardigan for myself. Just in time for the spring.
On another front, we are busy planning our wedding for this coming August, which is turning into a bit of a sociology experiment. The wedding industry is a fascinating one and seems to really celebrate the consumerism that I usually try to protect myself from. Still, Robb and I do want to celebrate our life together with family and friends so we are finding a way to celebrate not only ourselves, but our values. The chicken for our wedding is coming from a farm across the road from the inn we're getting married at. About 95% of the food is coming from farms within a 100 mile radius of where we live. So, this is actually a wonderful way to share the place we call home with the people we love. I'm sure I will have more humorous details as the plans progress and I am exposed to more ads that tell me things like, "This is the most important roll of toilet paper of your life. Why not monogram it?"
