Still Here, Less a Working Camera

Long time, no post. This is certainly not for lack of activity. My excuse is that my camera is currently out of commission. Luckily, there are plenty of people taking pictures of my beautiful nephew, Oliver. Here he is hanging out with his chicken. I didn't knit that chicken, but I'm trying to figure out the pattern now.

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?"

Good to see you back and posting. It's been about 2 months for me, and I haven't taken the time to post at all (and my camera works!).

Enjoy your wedding, and good for you for doing it your way. The wedding industry is huge and they try their best to suck you into it. Stick to your guns!
