Wonderland Columbus and My Current Knit

It's been quite a while since my last post. I will admit, I am fairly guilty of something. How to express it in one word I am not sure so I will explain.

A month or so ago I mention what I have dubbed my "big things poppin' fresh." What am I so guilty of? Expecting to be able to announce them sooner. The blog for one has already been written and is waiting to be posted. And the other "big thing" I have a vague conception of when it will come to fruition. These things are not huge for many but for me they are quite exciting. A few people who know me in person now know what it is I am waiting for and one has even scoffed at how unimpressive one (the one I have a vague conception of when it will happen) is. All I can really say about that is - no one likes someone who enjoys raining on other people's parades.

A few days ago I went to the pre-launch of Wonderland Columbus. I was relatively excited about it. The excitement it seems, was a bit unnecessary.

Wonderland Columbus is basically an artist colony. The Wonderbread factory here in Columbus is being prepped for a bunch of us wide-eyed hopefuls to use for a range of things. How big that range will be it seems they were unable to say. How much these spaces would cost (which is what so many of us were there to know) - they were unable to say. When will it open? Sometime in the future. How many spaces will be available? Not enough for the amount of us who showed up. Fantastic.

Here are a couple of pictures from the event (I have more but am only posting these two.)

I'm not sure if the painter was channeling Carl from Aqua Teen Hunger Force or not. I really didn't mean for Carl to come out so huge but I don't feel motivated to fix him.

I have some ideas about what flotation walls are but think I like thinking about this autonomous from all meaning best.

During the speech I noticed a fire extinguisher next to me that I don't think was actually a fire extinguisher. My first two clues were:
1) On the bottom it said "Art Vs Art"
2) Facing me in marker on top I saw the word "NOT" and it was underlined
I didn't really feel like making a public fruit loop out of myself by snapping pictures in a crowd of people.

Back to where on earth I have been. I have still been attempting to enjoy some personal knitting while managing to feel no guilt for not working on my store. My latest project comes from A Stitch In Time, Knitting and Crochet Patterns, 1920-1949 Vol. 1. I am making "With the New Cowl Neck Line."

Earlier today there were four new uploads activated on my Etsy shop. When I went to take that last photo I noticed I am missing a bottle of Chanel Mademoiselle Lotion - I am not amused.

There has also been a new link added to my list of places to Om Nom Nom online. I now have Form Spring which is a bit like an ongoing online survey.

Alright. It's now past 8pm and I have yet to eat lunch!
