Mistress of my own domain

Paddlin' on the River

While I'm waiting to upload my photos from my trip to the Southwest, I thought I'd share some local "travel" shots -- these from the Friday night Chill Paddle on the East River. The Long Island City Community Boathouse sponsors free kayak trips on weekends all summer long, and last Friday was the first official paddle of the season.

There's even a tangential knitting connection -- my friend Melissa, from the LIC Knitters group, came along as well!

Unwinding -- my new blog name

I realized that one of the reasons I hadn't posted in such a long while was that I'd been traveling more than I'd been knitting. So, I decided to make some tweaks to my blog and have it focus on two of my passions -- travel AND knitting.

Off we go!

Bad blogger

Wow -- can't believe it's been almost two months since my last entry. Lots to tell, but no time to do it today. In summary -- resigned from Changing Our World in mid-April; took some time off between jobs and did some traveling (D.C., Detroit, Sante Fe, Tucson, and Utah); signed a lease on a new apartment and will move at the end of July; have almost finalized my divorce (a long and painful process); and started my new job at The Conference Board last week.

I've done a bit of knitting over the past two months -- finished and gifted two more baby hats; finished and gifted two scarves; and found buttons (the final step) for the Olive cardigan. Sadly, forgot to photograph the scarves and hats, but will hope to receive photos from the wearers.

My knitting karma was working in Santa Fe -- found a cute little yarn store just off Canyon Road, so had to buy some yarn as a souvenir. Resisted the hemp yarn from the Hemp store near the main plaza, though, as I had no idea how hemp works up.
