Green Duckie would like to introduce Kewpie. He loves Kewpie very much--as a friend. They're just very good friends. They don't know what the future holds--Green Duckie is so young, just a few minutes old, and needs to be open to what the future brings.

Kewpie understands. Kewpie, after all, is over forty.

They know they'll always remember Berkeley.

Flash your stash day

That's all there is--one basket--not counting about ten balls of crochet thread that I'm slowly crocheting into curtains. The big, gray ball is Meridian Jacobs 2-ply, and I have half of a cone in addition to that, which I'm currently knitting into a spiral, round rug. I should have plenty leftover! And the brown is left over from Paul's sweater, and there may be enough of that for another sweater, too!

Below that are odds and ends, mostly, for which I have no firm plans. Fun!
