Kitten Break

My day job has been kicking my but the last couple of weeks, and I've had to put blogging on the back burner, so there's no post today. While I get caught up, enjoy some kitty pictures.

Spring Cleaning

For the last few months, I've been laboring under a bad case of knitting enui. None of my projects were interesting. I didn't want to make anything. I hated all of my yarn. I'm finally starting to shake off those doldrums--I'm taking vitamin D, spring has finally arrived so I'm getting more sunshine and exercise,… Continue reading Spring Cleaning

Works in Progress

Nothing super interesting to show this month, just some repeat projects. I've got a couple of things planned that I'll be working on later, though. The socks are part of my Village gear. I like to keep a pair on the needles at all times to work on during quiet moments. At our training weekend… Continue reading Works in Progress

Slightly more interesting, we move into the WIP… Continue reading Current Projects and Finished Objects

Separation Anxiety, Part II

I am surprised that the cat is even in the same room with me right now, or that he hasn't killed me in my sleep. Over the weekend, Missouri had some unexpected time off. Since we had time off together, we decided (with about 12 hours warning) to drive down to Memphis so that she… Continue reading Separation Anxiety, Part II

Teaser

I started on the test knit for Northman last night. I want to make sure my math is accurate with a different number of cast on stitches, so I'm using a slightly different yarn. For this one, I'm only doing the band of faire isle at the brim (mostly because I had to double strand… Continue reading Teaser

A New Addition

There's been a little radio silence around here, both on the blog and on the podcast. (I'd hopped to have a new episode up by this week but the essay isn't gelling the way I'd like. So if you have anything you would like to share on the subject of typewriters in film or on… Continue reading A New Addition
