Hello, hello. I hope you’re all doing something fun this weekend! I’m considering not working, but I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea. Something is the matter when the thought of not working makes you feel anxious and a little bit stressed out. Am I crazy? Maybe. I kind of love working, I guess!!

I am going to give it a go though, if only because 1. I never watched Cracks like I was planning on two weekends ago and still have it sitting here. 2. I never did bake that vanilla cake last weekend. 3. Maybe I really need a good mind rinse (so I can have even more ideas for work and be more efficient!!! see–even my holiday relaxation plans have ulterior work motives. *sigh*). Anyway–I hope you all are much more reasonable than I am and have a very fun, relaxing weekend.

    Oh, that’s Eunny Jang in that little handmade dress! I always wondered what happened to her! (she used to have a fairly popular knitting blog and then became the editor of Interweave Knits magazine). Hm, interesting!

      I’m not a knitter, but I had brunch with Sarai (Colette Patterns owner) over the weekend and she said the same thing. She is a big knitter, too. I loved the dress she made and her plans for the next one!
