Yesterday was my second day of ballet! It is so amazing to be doing it again; I have SO much to learn, I forgot so much in 10 years. So I am taking on Mondays, two back to back classes: a Level 1 class, followed by a “Ballet From the Basics” class. 3 hours of ballet, what! It’s pretty great taking the Ballet From the Basics because the class is slow and really gave me a chance to focus on my technique and form. I like knowing that, before I really continue in my practice, I’ll be aware of the correct posture & port de bras. Our friends Becca & Brad will be in visiting later this week, and Becca also takes lessons. I’m going to bring her to class on Friday, that will be so much fun!!!

Anyway, it just feels wonderful to be doing this kind of exercise again, to feel sore in places that I haven’t worked out in so long…..I know that I’m getting a workout! More later….

This Friday, I’ll embark upon a new adventure; one that I’ve ben dreaming of doing for the past 10 years. I’ll give you a hint:


That’s the progress of which I can currently speak. I still have lots of that lovely Habu Textiles Silk Stainless Steel left over, so I have no excuse to not seam this. I’ll keep you posted with my hopeful completion. The Habu was actually really fun to work with….the steel in it gives the project a strange sturdiness, I say strange because the yarn itself is less than lace-weight and seems so delicate. But it’s got a fine thread of steel running through the core to give it that strength that ultimately, in my opinion, makes the pattern what it is…..

Anyway, more later. Keep an eye out for the completed Ethereality!

I’ve had this domain now since January but have neglected it. I’m not sure why. I think I just need to get the first post started. So here it is; I was waiting to write some grand introduction perhaps, but honestly, I finally acknowledged- I have no readers, so then why am I doing this? I’m doing it to have a place on the web where I can condense all my hobbies and thoughts and crap that interests me. There are so many social media outlets that are ripe for microblogging, but I just want 1 space….

So here will be my webbie home, you’ll mostly find my knitting and cooking & baking adventures, but since I’m also a new homeowner, I think I’ll be posting on that progress too. And you’ll probably see a chihuahua here and there  🙂  I pledge to myself to attempt to maintain this blog & not forget about it! I might only post once a month sometimes & that is okay! So with that very brief uninteresting introduction, onwards……
