Inga has a new sister

It's been over a month since my last entry. How to catch up is slowing me down so it will be little bits at a time.

I love my little Inga but driving around in 14 degree weather scraping ice off the inside of the windshield was too, too much. It felt like days before my fingertips thawed out ! I hit Craigslist and found "Berit" my 1998 Volvo XC. It has HEATED seats !!! How wonderful is that ! Inga will be my summer car, and Berit my winter car.

The Nordic Knitting Conference is next week. Wow, it's coming up fast. The Seattle Times wrote a lovely article on the Lavold exhibit. It is stunning and very fascinating regarding the Viking artifacts and inspirations. I took her three hour Basic Viking Knits class and enjoyed it very much. I'm so glad a knitting related exhibit is being held during this Conference.

Thank you Barbro for designing this hat pattern for the Conference. It's perfect ! Shown here with Anna and her friend Liz. It will go in the goodie tote bag and be for sale in the gift shop. Utmärkt !

I've taken a huge step in changing my living situation this month which has me very apprehensive. More on that later.

Today is not yesterday: we ourselves change; how can our works and thoughts, if they are always to be the fittest, continue always the same? Change, indeed is painful; yet ever needful; and if memory have its force and worth, so also has hope.
