We are living small. Our possessions tucked tightly into a container on a ship crossing the Pacific Ocean, we’ve been living out of one suitcase for five months and now realize how much is in that large container and how much of it we really don’t need.
So, here we are in a small apartment in Santa Monica. adjusting to a new kind of life with a bare minimum of stuff and trying not to buy more, even as need arises.
There’s our $5 yard sale chair with a ball of shocking pink Manos Maxima, bought to make a hat I’ll show you soon. …a new design in the works
Our formica table found on Apartment Therapy (love that site) with another new hat-in-progress
borrowed sofa bed and glamorous bedside table: Miele vacuum cleaner box
I’ll be teaching a class on the Everyday Cardigan in May.

and more knitting news:
I’ll be showing the projects from my new book, Knitting Gifts for Baby, also at Compatto Saturday afternoon April 13, 2 to 5 pm. If you’re in the area, come and see them in person. The book is due to be released in May, so this will be a preview. I’m quite excited about this book. Love babies, love baby projects. More to come on that.
Oh yes, the book is available to pre-order on Amazon here.
I know, I’ve been a truant blogger of late. My excuse is something to do with upheaval. Thank you to those who have asked me if I’m planning to continue. I am.
