Tumblin' weed

I am currently enjoying one of the most relaxing and satisfying weekends I have had in a very long time.

{As an aside, I must say that it has become more and more evident to me that I need my weekends to be primarily quiet and solitary.  I very much enjoy socializing, but I have to be careful how much I do that.  I get a lot of "people time" at work all week and this wonderful and silent 3-day break I'm in the midst in has really recharged my batteries.}

I've been almost constantly signed into Ravelry, exploring in a way I haven't been able to in quite a while.  I've watched two movies (have you seen Ondine?  I enjoyed it...), finished knitting up my Burberry-inspired cowl (kitchener stitch demo coming soon), started up the wood stove (heaven) and I've eaten lots of soup (and drunk lots of peppermint tea), in the hopes of clearing up my chest congestion.

This morning, I've been poking about on the internet, looking for new blogs.  I'm not quite sure where I started, but I ended up all over Creation, reading some mighty interesting things.  The web is a curious thing, isn't it?  I think I've been to Japan by way of Australia and then over to Scotland and back through the US Pacific Coast, before landing back in my own studio just now.

I'll update my blog list at some point this century, but in the meantime, I thought I might give you some suggestions:

Creative Thursday
Ysolda Teague
Her brother, Struan Teague
Gudrun Johnston (who I was already sporadically watching, but look! she has a new site)

And I'm hoping that you already read BrooklynTweed, but just in case you don't, I wanted to send you over to read this.

Sigh.  If only I had an unlimited yarn budget...
