knitting and looking at art

I have been working on the knitted newspaper, All the while Chet stays nearby. Yep, it's true, he is developing separation issues. He gets anxious if we leave, even if it's just to check the mail. We're trying to train him to a crate (lots of "accidents" if he is just left to run around the house if we go). Any body have suggestions to help him get over this anxious state. I'm sure it has something to do with being in a kennel for 3 months so maybe the answer is just time.
Bad photo, i know, but that's him laying next to the newspaper I'm knitting.

....We got into the city on Friday for the Armory Show. I don't really remember specific pieces of work , but the feeling there was very "buzzy" it felt like the place to be. Galleries were selling and all the NY art world seemed to be there. kinda crazy kinda fun.

Being in the art sphere set off a crisis of sorts with me. I developed a terrific headache, and felt pressure pressure pressure to have my work out there. All of this culminated in me sending off some feelers to a couple of galleries. I think it really is time that I do this instead of hiding out here in the woods in my studio making things that never are seen.

I'll keep you all updated. - The headache is gone.

idle day

We do love Chet.
I admit it, I have pulled out the pattern books and maybe I'm considering knitting a doggie sweater.
I have also been trying to get some work going. The studio wall has been changing but creatively I'm feeling so so flat.
I keep forgetting that I wanted to link to this site, Pandora, created by the Music Genome Project. I've been using it to personalized the music I stream. Today I'm listening to Wax Tailor. Now I'm off to get some work done.
