It's starting to get cold downstairs in the mornings! I remember coming downstairs just a few weeks ago and it was always warm and stuffy because the windows were closed. But now I have goosebumps.

Yesterday I opened my mailbox and found a surprise!


It's so pretty! I was very vain yesterday and carted it around to show all my coworkers. The log buyer said "my grandma would be very proud of you!" - and was serious about it, not like many people closer to my age, who would have said the same thing jokingly. (have I ever told you that my nickname in college was "Grandma" because I was always crocheting? I had to crochet a bikini to get them to stop.) Hah.

The soon-to-be wife is a crochet and knitting machine.

All sorts of stuff? I guess the most unusual things would be the knit stuffed ammonoids (she modified a pattern found online to my specifications to authentically represent an ammonoid) and trilobites.

Her most recent crochet work has been a giant table runner for her mother, it's really quite remarkable.

I'll bring it next time we meet somewhere - if you're around on the 27th I may be able to see you then. Kim wrote back to me finally and now we have tentative plans to go to Powell's and such but I don't know how long that'll last. We shall see.
