why not take a picture of myself?

i keep getting distracted while cleaning the house (like to take this self portrait). i feel like i'm seven: time to clean up the ol' bedroom and all i can manage to do is jump on the bed with my dress-up clothes on and sing to myself in the mirror. it must be the sunny weather we are having here. okay, gotta go tidy something up.

saving light

saving light, originally uploaded by good little granola girl.

while my body (and mind for that matter. i'm having trouble guessing the time) is taking a bit of time to adjust to the time change, the light is just beautiful in the evening. i can't get enough of finding it hit different spots in the house.

these pictures were taken while i was cooking dinner monday night.

just beautiful.

my collection

my collection, originally uploaded by good little granola girl.

i don't often think of myself as a "girly-girl", but apparently i like soaps, lotions and lip balms.

this is my little cabinet where i keep home-made soaps, my Burt's Bees collection and all the salves, balms and creams i keep. i like to look at it. i like to think about which soap i'll use next, and i love to open it up and smell it.

baby legs project

so there is a design brewing in my head: for baby legs. does that sound creepy? i know there are many patterns available for longies: those adorable little 'sweaters for the bottom half' that work great with cloth diapers as soakers, keep those little legs warm in cool weather, and are just plain fantastic to have ( i suppose if you are one of those natural fibers type). but i want to create my own pattern. with short rows. that's all i'm saying for now.

thanks for the comments on the Old Man Werner Sweater-- that wool, from beaverslide dry goods, is so freakin' soft-- no scratch what so ever.

i'm using flickr to help me blog. it might just be the trick to keeping up with it: keep it simple.

old man werner sweater

this a tom's new beloved sweater. i self patterned every detail of it: i'm most proud of the collar, in which i used short rows to shape the garter stitch. the wool: is to die for. it now has leather buttons on it too.

there are more photographs over at the flickr, and details over at the ravelry (granolaGirl).

p.s. i had a birthday on the First. I'm twenty seven now. just so you know ;)

february sweater #2

how sweet. a little baby sweater. i cranked this out for a friend's baby shower. i totally forgot to take a photograph of the completed sweater-- but i love the color of this one.
