Knitting little red sweaters

Part of catching up after being gone for most of the last 3 weeks is listening to the cool knitting podcast that Brenda Dayne does each week (

She mentioned the Red Sweaters art installation that Nina Rosenberg is doing in San Francisco, Red Sweaters, to encourage discussion about war and raise awareness of the Iraq war losses (espousing no particular political view). Read the "about" link.

I've knit 4 of them to send so far--for me, this teeny sweater takes an hour to make. It's fun to make the stitch patterns different for each one. I invite you to see what this is about. I'm sorry I didn't know about this when we were in San Francisco. I'd love to have seen Nina's tree!

Home for awhile

Travel is over for now, I hope, given the huge delays in flights because of storms. All I did on my recent Kansas trip was pack and move boxes for days, helping my stepmother move from her house to an apartment. No time or emotional energy for drawing.

Color and line will return here soon!

Back again

Been traveling, went to San Francisco for a week, drew very little, had a great time. Just got home tonight. Leaving again in 4 days for Wichita.

No (drawn) images, just photographic ones and great memories.
