Art On The Loose; London’s National Art Gallery hid 45 replicas of their most famous paintings around London. Wouldn’t it be fun to track them all down?

I’m a sucker for good sorbet. This recipe just happens to be from Alton Brown and involve watermelon.

Stumbled across the While She Naps blog and podcast this past week and I’m smitten. Looks like a great resource for blogging, business, and creativity.

Had a fun idea for a new pattern. After copious notes, sketches, and knitting, all I have to show for it is frogged yarn. Time to cast on again.

Relaunch!

Over the past two months and especially during the last couple of weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of work on something not strictly related to yarn - this site, studiostrategos.com. The name and the address will stay the same but there’s a whole new look and layout. I could not be more thrilled and I’m excited to finally be able to share this with you. Please take a look around and let me know what you think.

Along with the site’s brand new look is a brand new RSS feed (though it looks like the old one will still work)- click here for the link. The link, along with a few other ways to stay connected, are also located in the “Follow” tab up top.

Oh, and just because today is “I Love Yarn Day,” here’s some cushy yarn goodness. I’ll be back next week with talk of 5K training, knitting, and lots more yarn.

3 Years

Doesn’t seem like it to me but today is this blog’s 3rd anniversary! It’s also my birthday and I have yarn waiting for me at ye olde local yarn shop. Today is just plain awesome for so many reasons.

Have I really been keeping a blog for 3 years? Yes. Some of those early posts are a bit cringe worthy now but they’re all still there for your reading pleasure. Just don’t have too much of a laugh at my expense. Many things have changed for the better over the years and I’ve got more bits of goodness coming down the pipe soon. 

I’ve had a great time keeping this blog over the years and have really enjoyed “meeting” and making digital friends. Don’t be afraid to introduce yourselves! And while we’re at it, is there anything you’d like to see here in the future? Or how did you find StudioStrategos in the first place? Thanks!

I’m off to spend the day with tasty food, great yarn, and even better company. Maybe I’ll even get a little work done too.
