a totem


What's New?
Joe and I have recently become members of the EMP/Sci-Fi museum. This past weekend we went to check out their Icons of Science Fiction exhibit, and were treated to a beautiful, sunny Spring day. Outside the EMP building I noticed this totem, which I hadn't seen before. Now, I don't visit the Seattle Center very often, so it was entirely possible that I had overlooked it, but I had a feeling it was new. Sure enough, it is the  totem memorial to a local native wood-carver who was tragically killed a couple years ago. It was installed a little over a year ago (which tells you how often I visit the Seattle Center). Here is a picture of it standing in front of the bizarre EMP building.

On the Needles
Sleeves, sleeves, sleeves. My purple and grey striped sweater still needs sleeves. This has just not been a good week for knitting. Also, the sun has been out much more than usual, the temperature is slowly rising, and so I'm not feeling the push to finish a long-sleeved wool sweater that I won't wear until Autumn.

Looking Forward To
  1. more sunny, Spring days
  2. taking a week off for Spring Break
