  • Finishing Up.

    I hope. I wasn’t EXACTLY peer pressured into switching word processing software, but I’ve switched over to Google Docs from Word at the behest of multiple friends. And I won’t say its worse, but learning new programs is annoying. They are similar enough that I can do all the basic stuff, but the formatting can […]

  • A Year of Projects: Weeks 28, 29, 30

    I blink and ALL OF A SUDDEN, its the end of March. AND the first day of spring. I for one am looking forward to blooming trees, flowers, growing grass, and open windows. I am NOT excited for the pollen-ing, but I can’t expect all the wins. My allergies are waiting to wallop me with […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 24

    I don’t know where this week went. Life was not throwing me curve balls: I’ll take it! What I did do was work on my Right Round Cowl. I’m on section 7 of 9(projected), hopefully I will have a FO next week! I also had two cast-ons. The first was an “Olympic” cast-on. Really, I […]

  • A Year of Projects: Weeks 22/23

    Last week, I was running late with my post. My intent was to write it Monday afternoon. Then, I got some truly AWFUL news that put me in a bad headspace for the past week. I’m still saddened, but in a somewhat better headspace today. Being confronted with your own fragile mortality through others is […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 19.5

    Welcome January! We are 5 days into the new year, and well, it feels just like last year. It being January, I decided to do the Instagram January picture thing again this year. I post a pic of the yarn-y things I’m wearing each day. With the cold temperatures finally hitting here, I have LOTS […]

  • NYE Cast-On Party.

    It’s the new year now, about 6:30am local time. I’m writing this from my phone, and the warm comfort of bed. Seize the moment, and all. The whole family stayed up until midnight, even the kids (6 & 7.5). We have been watching all the Marvel movies (in release order), last night we watched Shaung-Chi […]

  • New Sweater!!

    I’m bracing a bit from yesterday’s tepid mid-50’s to today’s low-40’s temperatures. I had hoped for a few more nice days before the actual arrival of winter. But we can’t always get what we want. This weather is obviously what I NEEDED, because I bound off the sleeves to this sweater last night. I finished […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 13

    As I was sitting down to write this post, I was certain that I had made a blog post mid-week. Apparently I did not. I merely thought about it. So… we can see my state of mind for the week. Think about it, don’t actually do it. Cool. This past weekend I went down to […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 12

    I’m a day late in getting my YOP post written. Which I am ok with. You see, I was out of town and spent 2 days both driving and enjoying some quality time with my friends. On Saturday, I was disappointed to find out that Knit With in Chestnut Hill is now permanently closed. Saturday […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 11

    The cold seems to have settled in here. I don’t want to leave my warm bed in the mornings, and we turned on the heat. Our overnight temperatures have been enough to frost, and despite my best attempts to limp my tomato to a few warmer days, I might just need to admit defeat. Next […]
