# five

Originally uploaded by Bridgman Pottery
from the one-a-day photograph series I'm embarking upon this year. Lots of folks over at flickr have been doing this for several years. I saw my friendJennifer was doing it and decided to copy-cat her.

I thought I'd get back up to the studio this week, but my studio is in the unheated second floor of our house (unheated because there are no radiators up there, and I don't want to turn on our forced-air heat system that blows dust around, makes noise, is expensive, and is inefficient), and when the day's high hovers around 20 (and when I have an ear infection that makes me cranky, to boot), I stay as close to the stove and radiators as I can, knitting (since last week I've finished 2 pair of socks, a hat, am 75% finished with a wrap for me and whipped out a cowl for my boy today, with new yarn for a sweater to come), making soup, baking bread.

Since I'm doing the St. Jude market on Jan. 29, I'll have to get up there and start making again soon, but until the weather is a bit more accommodating, I'm downstairs, following the warmth and light like a cat.

Hope y'all are staying warm.

ooh, a picture a day - daunting project. i've kind of sort of started doing the same, but haven't committed all the way yet. we'll see how it goes. it's cold here too. good time to sit by the fire with the laptop and spruce up the blog. i made a button to link to your etsy shop. hope you like it!

I'm so tired of the forced air, but it's all we have. The dust is crazy! And with lows in the negatives lately, the heater is running all. the. time.

Stay warm!

It's cold and so blustery here. We're back to the schedule so there's not too much knitting by the fire going on but hopefully this weekend will bring more of that.

You are a knitting machine! I have been following your cowl additions on Ravelry ... I think I can feel an obsession coming on :-)

Stay cozy ... and feel better soon!
