Gotten a bit busy...

My folks are back from their vacay, but they have left again to visit my bro's family in missouri. so while i'd gone back to housesitting for a few days in highland, i'm back up in hugo, again. haven't been in the studio to work yet though. hopefully tomorrow i'll get to some animals.

but i'm also working on a mural project with kids down in edina at the middle school, which is 40 minutes away. which means a one hour twenty minute round trip, on a good day. which, because of road construction season ramping (!) up, means there are no good days to drive in minnesota in the spring. boo!

i'm feeling the urge to do some knitting, i have de-comissioned my winter hat (seen in my profile photo) because i've been told it makes me look sloppy. the string holding the top has broken and i haven't fixed it. it will become a neck warmer next winter, i love how soft it is and i don't want to frog it. so i'm thinking of knitting this cute little topper- although the needle size is freaky-small so i may adapt it to larger needles and larger yarn. or mayhaps i'll do what i always do, make up my own pattern......
(EDIT) Ok maybe i'll do this one, not in yellow though.....
