Ok, I didn't notice that Javier Bardem was in the movie too!!!! This brings it to a whole notha level for me. He has to be the sexiest guy onscreen. If you haven't seen Vicki Christina Barcelona, then treat yourself.
So now I am really interested and I visit Elizabeth Gilbert's website. It is there I discover something more than expected. For you creative minds out there, Elizabeth gives a talk for TED and what begins as a nervous commentary, soon impresses as a soulful "take" on how to understand divine creative intervention; those brilliant ideas we know not where they came from. One of my most popular designs came in a dream. I literally woke up with the idea for Celeste. But mostly, I spend hours on ideas and even more on getting those ideas out there.
After visiting TED, you will discover other great talks, including ones from James Cameron and (one I thoroughly enjoyed) Steve Jobs - "Trust that the dots will connect down the road." With that, I'll spend the rest of the day designing fabric, trusting that however I create, whether I design knitwear, fabric or a room; whether I write stories, poems or greeting cards, I am showing up for work.
It's coming Ladies!!!! Cornball Chick Flick, I know, but you know your gonna Luuuuuuuuuuv it! Check it out at You Tube.
I enjoyed making and wearing these cozy little socks. The nice thing about them is they are so easy to make and you can add your own flare to them. You can change the motif, or do them in stripes. Or make them longer with more yarn. I almost put a bobble on the backs of them - could be cute! Click the photo to be taken to the $2 download page.
Finally, another one finished! This is a super cozy cardie, easy and fast to make. Go to Fall/Winter pattern page to find it.
Alina is almost finished knitting the Bren Cardigan and waiting on me for the button bands and collar. I said I have to research what is happening for Fall 2010, as the collar I have in mind is cowl-ish in nature and will next winter's fashions support that? Happily, it will. Here are some finds from Style.com, a source I often venture to:
I could personally wear these two and can imagine some great knitwear designs inspired by them. But the cowl lives on!!!!!!!!
Joanne loves to...
