Today I'm trying to remember, unsuccessfully so far, my New Year's Resolutions. Also, I've been weaving some more wool rugs, and making a plan for a small repp weave on my Norwood 4-harness studio loom, where I was so recently involved with Cat Paw scarfs. My favorite colors of poppy red and copper, mixed with a gray and unbleached white will be heart stopping, at least in my vision of them. A good Valentine weave.
In other news, my 12 year old geranium is about to bloom again. Did I ever mention how touching the leafs of this geranium in the studio in January releases such a fresh, unexpected scent, which smells sweet and green? Another favorite aromatic experience this time of year is to grate celeriac before putting it in soup. Well, back to some outdoor sporting activities until I can recall what my New Year's Resolutions were.
