Fibre artists are perhaps a little closer to their inner wildness than some other artists in the sense that they work with natural materials, often from animals. There is an airiness to spinning and fleeces. Dance, I think must be another form of expression that can capture a sense of abandonment. Cinematographers have the world at their disposal for both wind and wild. Cloths of Heaven from Queen Anne’s LaceActually it is craft a poem and it is a new group that has just started on Ravelry – Dec 11, 2010. The object is to submit a design inspired by a poem. There will be prizes awarded each month; but you don’t have to commit to a project a month – just read a lot of poetry and knit a “something.” Norwegian MittensThe Druids have taken up residence, in the house, once again. Yes, we have brought in “the tree” which will be, the Christmas tree. I love Christmas Trees, partly because I love trees in general; but I also love an occasion to bring a tree into the house and decorate it (i.e. worship it). Well, recessions and brown cars may come and go, but, I am still in love with the Camargue. It’s a classic Rolls Royce that I had set my sights on when I was in my twenties and poor. I had decided in my naivete that some where between earth and heaven there was a land that would support a “liberal” that drove a brown Rolls Royce. Well maybe there isn’t, because I am still a liberal; but I don’t drive a Rolls Royce. Ivy now creeps across my bedroom window. On icy days, it is still green and crisp, the presence of eternal Spring. Holly and Ivy both symbolize fidelity, harmony, and hospitality. I did a post a few years ago on pink flamingos and the demise of their creator. I have come to love pink flamingos. Personalized Pouch from InfiknitDinner? I find that pasta is always a de-stresser. I have it a lot – does that mean that I am over stressed? Last night I decided to use up what was left of the smoked salmon we had as an hors d’oeuvre on Christmas Day. I made a bechamel sauce added some mushrooms, smoked salmon, scallions, pepper and parsley. I never know what herb to use with smoked salmon. I could use dill – but no one else likes it. I could use tarragon, but it’s not my favourite and I forgot all about rosemary – lucky I had lots of parsley. Now knitters have known all along that “playing” with sticks is a de-stresser. Maybe that’s why we keep several projects on the go at once. Some knitting just naturally slows us down – lace for example – while other projects zip along when we are perhaps less stressed. If you can keep the kids clean, have them play cow patty bingo or cow pie catch. • Penticton Elks Lodge breakfast, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Grimms meat draw and dog races, 2 p.m. • Karaoke Friday Nights at Howling Coyote Pub and Grill, 6341 Main Street, Oliver, beginning at 8 p.m. • Fraternal Order of Eagles, Friday night dinner, 5-7 p.m. Not a lot of creative items aside from the beetle. I did like that you could upgrade most of the items though. Made aspects of exploring and fighting more like puzzles.
There is this blurring between words, languages and dialects. The great castle in Edinburgh – Holyrood – is pronounced “hollyrood” – which is possibly a doric form of haly ruid – or holy cross. On the other hand, Holly, the shrub, has for centuries been assigned supernatural powers. In celtic mytholgy, it housed the fairies, who in turn brought luck to the home that protected the holly. In Christian mythology the holly’s cycle of green, white and red berries follows the story of the life of the Christ child. I understand that some faiths require that you include a stranger at your table for Christmas dinner. Maybe this is the family experience for just a day – but an important day for many. Others just have a big dinner for anyone who hasn’t a family close by and for awhile, they are “the family.” Some of these children are close at hand, within the extended family; others come from half way around the world. Pinafor from Goddess KnitsI spent sometime thinking of the mitochondria of knitting. If the knitted cell is the stitch – either knit or purl – which is in fact the same stitch depending on which side you are on – of the knitting that is – then what is the mitochondria? What is it that takes from the yarn what it needs to give power to the cell/stitch. – instructions that say, twist this, skip that, red here, black there. Or are our hands really the mitochondria? Is it the knitter that actually empowers the stitch by creating it. Subtle differences, but it’s always good to look at your artistic work from a different perspective occasionally. I know that there are a lot of people out there that play Bingo. It’s a “soft” kind of gambling, but to have a whole month dedicated to the promotion of it, is a little sad. While the final week of March seems like a strange time to host a major festival, Ignite the Arts team believes it’s perfect. The format for the final weekend is similar to the Pentastic Jazz Festival where visitors can travel from venue to venue or remain at one venue for the entire day. Wake up and smell the all-you-can-eat-pancakes at Pancake Day. At Roma Lodge, 7130 Spring St. in Mount Pleasant. With Betsy Ade and the Well-Known Strangers. $10 at the door; free for kids 5 and younger. • Fraternal Order of Eagles, burgers and fries, noon-4 p.m.; meat draw, 4 p.m. 1st time – “It takes a lot of work to run this. Like throwing a hot dog down a hall way.” Huh? That goes X2 if you have no idea what the hell it means. Was in a business meeting earlier this week and one of our VP’s was trying to simplify what it is that we do to one of our partners. Sim City – When your city’s population reaches half a million people, you’ll get a letter telling you that the people have built a Mario statue. Post your final scores to the challenges here! Discussion on the challenge can be done in separate topics, but the final answers need to be posted here. This will make it much easier than sending PMs and whatnot. Finally, as the evening’s entertainment drew to a close the audience got to vote on their favorite film of the day.
Crochet pom pom bear hat
“Trees in particular are mysterious, and seem direct embodiments of the incomprehensible meaning of life.” Well, surprise, surprise someone beat them to it and now they are late players in an almost saturated market. For anyone who has read Malcolm Gladwell’s “the Outliers” , the story of Bill Gates and QDos is legendary – he was in the right place at the right time and had put in his 10,000 hours and reaped the rewards. But he was also in the right place at maybe the right time for mobile computing and he passed on it or delayed on it. How does this fit into the theory of “Outliers”? Perhaps not only do you have to be in the right place at the right time with the right idea; but you have to act on it as well. You could even have competitions between neighbourhoods or towns and cities for tree diversity and coverage. I can see private funders opening up their wallets to add to their tree base and the city would reap the benefits by not having to shell out as much money to plant new trees each year. My husband found a recipe for a variation of Cassoulet in a Sobey’s flyer and it has become our escape to the south of France for an hour or so over dinner!. Argyle Gloves from Le TissierApparently the brown car is back. That is, brown, as a colour for cars, is back. Is this a late 20’s or early 30’s thing? Brown coloured cars were popular both during the great depression and in the 70’s, which apparently, sported a number of brown cars, and I guess, now. Maybe this is a recession “thing.” Ironically in googling for more information I came across a song called Starry Gazey Pie. I have the feeling that nothing will be isolated or obscure again. It seems that the more esoteric an item is, the more it will be embraced by the creative, only to become mainstream by its popularity and the hunt for the obscure begins again. I planted two Holly bushes years ago in the garden – you need two bushes – a prince & princess to grow the berries – and the bringing of the Holly into the house each year, to me, is magical. To have in the middle of winter, when everything else is dark and dormant, a plant as bright and lively as the holly to pick sprigs from is amazing. We have also managed to grow, with a lot of struggle, Ivy. I think that it should be something with cabbage. Actually the vegetarian offering on the menu at a restaurant that I went to the other night was stuffed Swiss Chard leaves. Can I do cabbage rolls even if it isn’t Irish? For most of us it will be left over turkey. For those who ate out, maybe just a boiled egg, you may have eaten enough for 2 or 3 yesterday. Wisteria Beaded Gloves & Socks from Le Tissier I was given two books as Christmas gifts . The books are “Click” by Ori and Rom Brafman and “Split-Second Persuasion” by Kevin Dutton. Well, I am half way through the persuasion book and I have come across a word that is a new word for me – “mitochondria” or cell power – actually more correctly the power sources of cells. The mitochondria extract what they need from the body and convert it into energy needed by the cells. Stores and offices may be closed but there’s still lots to do this Victoria Day Monday in and around Toronto from mainstream circuses, fireworks, and something a little out of the ordinary. While most of the attendees are expected to be from the Okanagan, tickets have been purchased from as far away as Vancouver Island. “By having this over spring break, there’s a lot of people who traditionally leave and we’re looking to have people stay here,” Crawford said. Ticket buyers might be confused by the fact a lot is going on — all at the same time. The 10-day event kicks off Friday and runs through until April 3 at various venues across the city. • Live music at the Cannery Brewing Co., featuring Double Sharp, 5-7 p.m. • Penticton Gun & Antique Show hosted by Last Stand Promotions, 9 a.m. At Penticton Curling Club, second of two days, $7 and $5 , all federal and local firearm ordinances and laws must be obeyed. • Live music at the Cannery Brewing Co., featuring Jim Ongena, 5-7 p.m. • Art show in support of Oliver Crime Watch, Phantom Creek Estates, 4315 Black Sage Road in Oliver, noon-3 p.m.
I liked that if you swung your sword mindlessly that you’d get wrecked most of the time. Don’t lie, even if you hated the game, the boss theme for Moldarach/Koloktos got your blood pumping. I liked the fact that it was a community that actually cared about Link and that he had a relationship with just about everyone there. Twilight Princess sort of tried this but it wasn’t convincing enough and Ilia was the only character that seemed to have any real attachment to him. Set where you live, what language you speak and the currency you use. Almost everything is cheaper so it depends what you normally buy and if you have access to not Jewish stores like Walmart. For instance- walmart grapes near me were like 1.88 a lb, bingo 2.99 but Jewish stores 4.99. You’ll have to call about __ items before someone wins. There’s a __% chance that a lucky player would win after calling __ items. A pre-packaged envelope of four cards for the game on March 12th, 2022. A portion of each card sold is donated to various organizations in Manitoba and used to start projects focused on serving the needs of our community. A pre-packaged envelope of four cards for the game on January 16, 2021. Both of her uses are completely illogical. I think that the only legitimate, minimally-perverted interpretation of that analogy is that a particular effort is perceived to be futile. Even then, it’s a terrible analogy, and still requires a bit of perversion to illustrate the comparison. Having sex with that ho is like throwing a hot dog down a hallway. Futurama – When Earth is taken over by DK, Mario says “The cruel meatball of war has-a rolled onto our laps, and ruined our white pants of peace”. EarthBound – The English version of this NES RPG featured a scene where a kid asks if you’ve played Super Mario Bros. 7. Tetris DS – The majority of the single-player game is surrounded by Mario sprites. Tetris – Player one is Mario, and player two is Luigi. If you managed to beat the extremely difficult challenge that was Tetris for the NES, you were rewarded by seeing a dancing Mario, Luigi, Samus, Link, Bowser, Donkey Kong, Kid Icarus, and Princess Peach. Alleyway – This is full of Mario references, from the levels shaped like Mario characters to the fact that the paddle is piloted by Mario. Pikmin 2 – One of the items that you must take back to your ship is a bottle cap with Bowser on it. Also during the credits for certain modes, when the screen showing “Special Thanks” shows up, a picture of Kirby standing with a golden Mario is seen in a corner. If your postal code might be further than 25kms from a store, try entering a city name instead. Funding for the BMD project and part of the newspaper digitizing project was provided by the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society. This one is called “Lazy Shepherd’s Pie.” Well lazy shepherd’s don’t end up with enough sheep for a pie – but as a cook, it should make life a little easier. I picked this dish because a few years ago I did a post on a poem entitled “My Lost Shepherdess.” You can take it from there. I have offered as a prize for January my pattern for Red Rose Shawl. Robbie Burns is a suggested poet for January. I have also offered for June or July – that’s a long way off – “Cloths of Heaven,” from W. I am waiting to see if it has been accepted.
TOQUE HAT 10 COLOURS, with brim, hand-crocheted in Canada
So we are nice, because we want everyone else to be nice and we control the desire to be one with the wind. Well I just did meatloaf which I think is about as cryptic as it gets for dinner. How about Tourtiere which is a fancy meat pie for festive times. But I would add lots of things like bits of carrot and turnip and parsnip. I have had Tourtiere with moose, venison, caribou, . I’ll bet that there were a few made with rabbit etc. Make it as interesting as you like. Something green and leafy – a salad. Here’s a great link to a site that has lots of EASY recipes for salads. The pictures are of knitting patterns with either tree or leaf in the title – inspired by nature. Well, I thought wouldn’t it be great to have an app that would allow you to inventory the trees in your immediate area and then be able to transmit this data to city hall. Then you could create another app to show all the trees on various streets, so when you went for a walk you could comment on each one – maybe even give then names – Charley the Chestnut….or something. Or record minute data, such as, trunk size and number of leaves, age, height etc. Again this is extending the family experience or at least prolonging it. I love organizations like “Big Brother” and “Big Sister” that reach out to children who may have a very limited family and enrich their lives with expanded family experiences. Donkey ornament from wine corksOK, who said that there are some Christmas tree ornaments out there that are UGLY! I think that it must have been some journalist who was trying to get attention because newspaper sales are down and the best way to get noticed is to “dis” on everything and sound “funny”. I know that some people think that lawn ornaments are ugly. I say that it depends on the lawn ornament and the viewer and the neat story behind the ornament. Tickets for students ages are $25 for the weekend and children 12 and under are free. Adult tickets are $125 as of Friday at midnight. Tickets for the final weekend are available until Thursday at the reduced rate of $100 which includes a $15 voucher for select businesses, gallery and artist merchandise. Part of the festival’s concept was to involve all of the partner groups from the community and many are hosting their own events during the 10-day period. Organizers encourage visitors to go online to research the artists and then plan their week accordingly.
• Penticton Elks Lodge, drop-in cribbage, 10 a.m., IGA meat draw, 4 p.m., dinner, 5 p.m., live music with Thirteen Broken Bones, featuring release of the band’s latest single, 6 p.m. First, I miss what was then an hour’s drive over the moors from Prestwick to Blantyre. It was always very early in the morning and usually there was a hoarfrost on the ground and the land looked like something from a long time ago. I miss too the row houses all made of stone, set on winding streets, that rolled like the moors; but what I miss most of all is the language. What does all this have to do with knitting – not a lot except that knitting draws from the obscure. Hand knitting is a niche interest. OK, maybe it’s shared by a million people worldwide…that’s just 1% of the world’s population. The styles and stitches, that have been passed along, come from the nooks and crannies of the earth – islands in the North Atlantic, small communities in Japan, mountain villages in Greece or Peru. Those who have had an opportunity to experience life’s oddities from the tiny corners of the world can appreciate the special nature of knitting and it’s obscurity. But if you prefer to spend your day around the aroma of food instead, head out to a street food cart for the debut of culturally diverse street food. The city’s first foray away from traditional hot dogs offer up everything from jerk chicken at Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue to souvlaki at Nathan Phillips Square. • Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 40, meat draw, 2 p.m., live music to follow with Candie, 4-7 p.m. • Penticton Elks Lodge, drop-in cribbage, 10 a.m., IGA meat draw, 4 p.m., dinner, fried chicken, 5 p.m., live music with Gypsy, 6 p.m. As young children are often still finding their words and struggle to communicate with those around them, teaching sign language is a wonderful opportunity to help them open those lines of communication. At Bug n’ Bean I teach children basic sign words for mommy, daddy, baby, milk, juice, water, eat, drink, more, finished, shoes, coat, please, thank-you . At this age, your child is soaking up knowledge like a sponge and learning every minute of every day. Building a love of reading with your child is a very important start to encouraging them to want to be good readers on their own. I read many stories with the children as well as offer an early reading skill building DVD program and many word game and activities to get your child ready for school. I went looking for pictures of knitting with the word wind or wilderness in the title and found just one on the infiknit site. I did add Mabon, also from Goddess Knits as she is a pagan goddess of Autumn – wild spirits! Actually I have on my list to do a lace shawl entitled, “Candle in the Wind.” I think that Elton John, at times, captures that elusive inner being in his music. Maybe all great artists do in their best works. Snowmen hats from Woodsmoke WoolworksI love merged families – man with children, marries woman with children and they become a large family – the Brady Bunch is the classic. I also love the way the gay community has created families, today. Something that might not have happened as “easily” a generation ago. Family Cable CrossingI just love the way families “happen.” Yes there is always the traditional family which happens when a husband and wife have biological children and this is good.
Outdoor movie night at Grizzli Winery raises funds for Paws it Forward
• Fraternal Order of Eagles, Sunday afternoon meat draw, 4 p.m. As a song plays, Lucas and Laura walk in the woods, cross a bridge, balance on a fallen tree trunk, cross a stream, run across the city and in a park full of geese. It’s the worst 3D Zelda but definitely not the worst Zelda game . I think time will be a lot more forgiving of it because I remember how a lot of people were equally outraged by Wind Waker and Twilight Princess but now they’re considered classics. I think it added a lot of new elements that could easily be improved upon in future Zelda games and it took far more risks than most previous Zelda games. Some things worked while others didn’t but I still think it was a solid title, just not totally up to snuff with typical Legend of Zelda standards. I’m from oot and my dh will be traveling to boro park this week. As food is so expensive here he’ll be making a stop at Bingo for food especially items for purim. A couple years back at her church, while putting up the artificial Christmas tree, my wife proudly announced she would be the designated fluffer . I snickered and the time and noticed a few others smiling as well. Oh, the look on her face when I explained what that meant… In addition to fantastic music, the Squamish Constellation Festival will feature visual, live performance and interactive art all weekend long. The Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking third annual INDIEFEST made for a great night out this past Saturday night. Storytellers, Artists, Musicians, Filmmakers and Movie lovers of all description enjoyed a feast of film and music at the Kelowna Community Theatre. When children are listening to or reading books they are developing language. They are learning that printed words have meaning, developing an appreciation of books and going on new exciting adventures. The reading area is a wonderful getaway for children who just need a quiet place in a busy, playroom. In the dramatic play area children take on roles and recreate real life experiences or act out imaginary scenes with fun costumes and/or puppets. This area supports both individual play and cooperative play. Role play allows children to make sense of their world. It provides opportunities to work together express their feelings, use language to communicate roles and respond to one another in a creative way. They obviously decided not to pursue the idea of mini computers at that time, probably because they were building an empire in regular sized personal computers. Maybe they were keeping their idea under wraps for a time when they had exhausted the demand for desk tops and lap tops and then they would move into palm tops. Now, maybe we could combine trees with knitting sculptures – a little like yarn bombing only with taste. The problem with knitted “things” outdoors is they get worn and look very sad after a while. Somehow we have to inventory knitting and yarn available for viewing that maybe begins with yarn shops but extends to the local community. Flake Scarf A few years ago I designed Winter Lace Scarves. I decided that if I had to live for 3 or 4 months of the year in the cold and dark, I might as well try to enjoy it. Sprig scarf is my translation of a sprig of holly, with berries, into knitted, beaded lace. I added to the collection “Sparkle” because I wanted to capture the lights and festivities of the Christmas Season also in lace. I used a diamond motif for the glitz and a tassel for the ornament. Finally I couldn’t have a winter collection without snow. Flake can also be beaded at each double decrease for more sparkle. Garden Holly 2010Well Holly is or can be holy depending on your interpretation of the language.
• Legion Branch No. 40, meat draw, 2 p.m., live music with Rollin’ Coal, 4 p.m. • “It’s a Colourful World,” featuring the works of Jenny Long at Summerland Community Arts Council, Wharton Street in Summerland, weekdays 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Circle time provides an opportunity for children to develop a sense of belonging to a group. Social skills are enhanced when children learn to share ideas and listen to the ideas of others. Some of the activities which take place in circle time include stories, songs, games, reviewing letters, numbers, signing alphabet, french words as well as some music and movement. I will plan age appropriate circle times taking into consideration the children’s attention spans, interests and abilities. Children are given a five to ten minute warning before clean up time to finish up any projects. Clear directions are given to the children during transition times and the routines are kept the same each day so that children know what to do on their own. If a child is working on a special project or activity it may be saved for later. Clean up time is an excellent opportunity for the children to learn the importance of care and ownership of the daycare. For example, by putting things away children are showing pride in their space and will know where things are later when they are looking for them. Argyle socks from Cabin FeverWell, Auld Reekie is hame to my brother and sister-in-law anyway. There is an old song by Bob Dylan that is part of a new ad, now. It has the lines, “try and catch the wind.” There is something elusive about the wind. Something that cannot be harnessed and maybe that is what we sense and long for.

TVOkids doesn’t have control over the YouTube experience. In animation, a dialogue bubble pop out of a map with a caption “That TVO Kids Show.” As for Fi being playable, I’m not that mad since she DID play a huge role in Skyward Sword. He moveset does seem to fit her graceful characters and I hope her Vocaloid-esque voice returns. As for Ghirahim being supposedly “disconfirmed”, I can tell that the devs are trolling us and will reveal all humanoid bosses as unlockable characters in Free Mode. No matter what your opinion on Zelda games are, everyone can agree on . I thought Demise was a terrible final boss. They basically just smashed Ganondorf and Akuma from Street Fighter into one character. Motion controls were only annoying for some of the parts for me like fitting the boss door keys exactly in the right spot. Groose and Ghirahim were obviously the best new additions while the incarnations of Zelda and Impa in this game were easily the best in the franchise. Like many people, I also found Fi annoying but I didn’t find her any worse than Navi. No matter what your opinion on Zelda games are, everyone can agree on Mario. He needs to be singing the Tanoshii Bingo song when doing that… Just wondering what items they carry. For more control of your online game, create a clone of this card first.
Justin MacGregor’s experimental short film “Friendship Before Money”, starring the always entertaining Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero of “The Room” and “The Disaster Artist” fame, took that final accolade. Funding for the website search capability and part of the newspaper digitizing project was provided by the Government of Canada. There are seven days, there are seven days, there are seven days in a week. Children love to use pencils, crayons and other writing implements to create pictures. This is where the early stages of writing and drawing are explored and mastered. Children will have a variety of art materials available to them to explore their creative and crafty side. Children playing with these toys are using their small muscles, hand-eye coordination and creativity. These are, of course, organized people. I’m lucky if I remember to go out with mitts and even luckier if they are matching. Now do I have to worry whether I have them on the right err correct hand or not? Anyway, I loved the concept so much that I had to write about it. I have to believe that Leonard Cohen is the hottest 76 year-old on the planet. He is just about to end a two and a half year tour and judging by the reviews he is/was amazing!!! There is a group on Ravelry dedicated to knitting and to the poetry of Leonard Cohen – awesome! Below is their theme song/poem – they have changed the title slightly to Tower of Yarn – well it is Ravelry and we pay our dues where we must. Actually I have to believe that Leonard Cohen wouldn’t mind. Anyone who could write a poem about the Song of Bernadette has to be all encompassing. Wildflower Shawl from Goddess KnitsPeople tell me that Newfoundland has an elusive quality about it, again a feeling of coming a little closer to that feral core. Being a fibre artist in Newfoundland might just be that ultimate state of inner “freedom.” I did read of an architect who is building an artist’s community on one of the islands off the coast of NF. For many it is art, because art is an acceptable “wildness.” We can do whatever we want to within a certain medium. We can even try to catch the wind!
It is the foundation of a society. What fascinates me more, though, is how people, that are not part of this traditional family structure, create their own families. • “It’s a Colourful World,” featuring the works of Jenny Long at Summerland Community Arts Council, Wharton Street, weekdays 9 a.m.-4 p.m. • “It’s a Colourful World,” featuring the works of Jenny Long at Summerland Community Arts Council, Wharton Street, weekdays 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. The show runs April 30-May 1 and May 6-8.
