Extreme Knitting

Oops, second inspiration video in a row. This is pretty interesting though. Knitting with 1000 strands, totally an exercise in extremes. What I find interesting though is the statement that is below the video (click to get to the you tube site). The yarn used was all deemed excess and garbage. It really is a wonder what our society throws away.

Colour Choices

Ok, I`ve been convinced to keep this light green colour in the shop. It`s nice, fresh paint and way less work to keep it! Here`s my problem, this isn`t a colour I use a lot, what could I use to accent it? I need paint in an alcove, probable the main door as well. Any thoughts? It`s a nice light leaf green, very airy. And a metric tonne of white trim.

A New Day, A New Blog Post

O boy, life changed a whole lot over the last few months I've been absent around here. Where to begin for a short synopsis? Met a fantastic guy, had surgery on the leg again, renovated the little house, built a garage, expanded the coop, raised my biggest ever flock of meat birds, quit my job for the man and today... today I am picking up the keys for the new and improved Match Factory. Just a little busy huh? Oh, I also went for a quick visit to Vegas, a canoe trip, to Ottawa..mmm...4? times, Toronto a couple of times, have a tenant in the Little House and got a motorbike.

I really will try and update a little more often!
