i just want my scarf.


I know it's not fair to elude to this week-end and not tell you anything about it. I just feel a lot less annonymous now that my blog is the first thing that comes up when you do a google search of my first and last name. How did that happen? No matter, I should stop pretending this was ever really that annonymous anyway. And now that I'm linking to sfist well, I guess I'll just come out. I just fucking pray that the scary guy I went on those dates with doesn't stumble across this blog. After a week-end of complicated guys, I'm really excited to be getting crafty with some girls this week. Molly is picking me up for a craft night soon, the theme is cozy crafts and I'm bringing along my crocheting that I started in Jersey in the hopes of completing and learning how to start and finish something tonight. Then on wednesday I get to meet Susan Beal of West Coast Crafty! She invited me to have cake for her birthday with her and some other great crafters in the area, including Marie Kare of the Sampler. So it's all girls and all good crafty things for me the rest of this week.

Really, the only thing I'm truly sorry for that happened this week-end (sorry to bring it up again, but trust me, there are some things not worth sharing in such a public space) was that I lost my scarf. My very favorite scarf that my sister-in-law gave me for Christmas. I know it was just a scarf, but it was long and soft and the colors in it matched everything I wore and it completed me for a week. I read somewhere once that you should really mourn the things you lose, so instead of beating myself up over other things, I'm focusing on how sad I am that that great scarf has gone missing. Once I pick my head up I'll knit myself a new one.

That great image I found on flickr and it was posted by norththreads , a blog with a ton of adorable and cozy crafts.

to be honest, i'm not entirely sure. a toast cover? a tea cozy? i impulsively posted it for the T, and 'cause i thought it was sort of cute. maybe it's just a T wall hanging.
