Quick - Look Left, Look Right

I've returned my blog columns to their original places after numerous requests. My brother explained precisely why it was a good idea several weeks ago, but I can't remember what it was.. it had to do with which part was cut off if the screen settings made the blog too wide.

Its been one of those painful, tailchasing days of slow spiralling progress. I've been circling my project, picking a bit at each piece and slowly getting somewhere, but I feel stressed to the max. I miss the days where I had straight forward problems that I could just solve and feel - I wish I could draw a picture and write out the problem on engineering paper - and better still find the instructions in some text book. Its coming. I'm looking forward to having it done.

When I haven't been entirely stressing about this paper, walking the dog, sleeping through movies or spending time with my family, I've been knitting - mostly while in the car. I have most of a neat scarf done - using funky multi-hued wool and the seed stitch. I have about half a ball left - maybe by the time I get home on Tuesday.

Well, back into the fray for me.... I just need to keep chugging away - looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. Or at least the station where I pick up about 3 more projects, but hopefully more straight forward ones.

Oh yeah! The photos were fantastic. The one photographer was a pre-wwII german photojournalist who captured a fascinating era with neat pictures, while Ansel Adams landscape prints were simply breath-taking. Now I really want to see Yosemite park!

Finally, the two pictures attached to this post are two of my favourites from Lakehead. One is me hunting for plants during a wetland biology lab, and the other is Amanda playing my acoustic in my Prettie single.
