This picture is from Erin McKeown and Carrie Rodriguez at the Cactus Cafe on 2/22/2011. What a great venue for them. And afterwards I bought the latest CD from each of them. I got to meet Erin and she signed my CD. Erin's latest CD is Hundreds of Lions. Carrie's is Love and Circumstance.

These 2 photos are from a Doug Burr show at the Mohawk on 3/5/2011. This show was pretty good. I've never considered myself a Doug Burr fan, I went out there to hang out with some friends, but I enjoyed myself.

Other music related topics: I bought some CDs this weekend.

I have crocheted things to post on here, but it is 3:41am and I don't feel like uploading them from my camera. Coming up will be my SXSW recap as well as more finished objects and an update on the film I am currently working on, Flocker. Also I am getting some film developed that I took with my lomography camera. I'll post them if they come out interesting. As I'm composing this post, I am listening to Sgt. Pepper's. That's all for now, off to bed.

Format Change

Okay, so this is no longer going to be just a fiber related blog. I'm changing the format at bit for it to include other creative aspects of my life, which will include music, books, cooking and such. I've also been sort of organizing my photos, so as I find things I made that never got posted here, I will post.

This is the Sweet Pea Shawl pattern from Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker. I made this for my mom for Christmas in the fall of '09. It came out great. I left off the tassels.

I am currently reading Marvel 1602. Trying to finish up now since it is a borrowed book. I am also reading More Than You Know by Beth Gutcheon. I think my sister gave me this book a while back. The first five pages were boring, so I'm having a hard time getting in to it. But I'll give it another go after I'm done with the graphic novel.

So I'm compiling my SXSW 2011 information right now. Look for an update for that in the next few days!
