Losing a friend...

Yesterday I found out at the end of my day that Karrie, KnitPurlGurl had passed away suddenly on Monday. I felt the blow physically, though I have never met Karrie, in person, she was the first knitting blogger/podcaster that I started following. Through her podcast I discovered many others, and Plurk and began to really feel like a part of the knitting community at large. For me this was very important, as I do not have a lot of friends who knit, crochet or spin, and the few that are interested in fibre arts do not live near me. It was amazing to be able to chat with and learn from these women (and men) who loved fibre as much (and more) than I do.

Is it mid-November already?!

Hello again!

So what happened after my 30th birthday??? Nothing! Life goes on. Halloween happened, which is supremely anti-climactic here in a country where it's not quite so celebrated. A few kiddies will get out & visit those that they know well. There's no trips to the pumpkin patch, carving pumpkins (in fact its rather difficult to find an orange pumpkin here, and they refer to all squash as pumpkin), getting dressed up, trick or treating. However, we had some squash last night, so I toasted the seeds & it was delish!
