New shape

I’ve been thinking — this morning I was listening to the Stash & Burn podcast and they said something about EZ’s yoke sweater and how much they like it. Ironically, my first thought was exactly the opposite. I’ve never liked the round look of a yoke sweater at top. The square shape of shoulders and the round shape of the yoke have always struck me as contrary.

But then it occurred to me: what if I did a squared yoke? Wouldn’t that look good too? I’m going to have to consider this possibility. I may have an idea for my next sweater.

It would have to be fine yarn, I think.

What’s an artist?

I’ve got another post simmering around in my head on why I don’t really consider myself an artist, but I’ve realized that I don’t yet have a definition for what makes an artist yet. The actual definition:

2 a : one who professes and practices an imaginative art b : a person skilled in one of the fine arts
3 : a skilled performer; especially : ARTISTE
4 : one who is adept at something
(taken from

doesn’t have the connotations and nuances that I want to express because, especially by those definitions, I am an artist.

no, I think…
clearly, I’m confused. I may have to rethink my opinion of myself. That other post is one I’m still working on.

Now to begin

I’ve thought about this for a while. I’ve finally realized that I really do want to try out a blog of my own. Who knows what will go here? My thoughts, my rants, my babblings … just a reflection of what’s going on inside my head and the parts of my life that I am willing to share online.Then I realized I could try it out for free!

Believe me, I have plenty to say.

Of course, then comes the question of whether or not I will remember to post regularly. Lots of stuff goes on inside my head that never makes it out of my mouth. Sometimes that is a good idea. Other times, I wish I had said something. So maybe here I can work out what to share, both the serious and the fun.

Here goes nothing.
