Fuck being all busy and stressed out. I’m taking a break.

Friday, December 16th, 2011

I am not a disciplined person. I get a hell of a lot done (though never as much as I want), but it’s not through solid planning or because I’m a real go-getter, but through a sort of frenzied, fearful, directionless will. I spend a lot of my time in an adrenaline-fueled blur. This would […]

Free pattern on Craft Splash, knit in a mere 3 skeins of Lorna’s Laces Pearl (4 skeins for the L/XL)! As a swimsuit coverup: As a dress: I’m kind of loving lace right now. Lace is just such a bargain to knit that I can’t resist it. I mean, a 300g dress! And the short […]

Home again, home again, jiggety jig (and 2 new FREE patterns)

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Well, I’m  a few days home from a marvelous vacation with my mom. I’ve recovered from the jet lag, almost adjusted to my seemingly invigorated allergies, and I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things. I’ve much to do. Kristi and I used to take a mother-daughter vacation almost every year, but since moving […]

More snow, warm ears (free hat patterns)

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

We’ve got another Winter Weather Advisory underway. With all my friends in the real snow territories getting blanketed repeatedly, and without any pressing need to leave the building, these little snow events are starting to seem kind of cute. (Hm. I think the weather heard me. The wind just kicked up and the snow is […]

Close, but no tomato

Monday, November 8th, 2010

Well, the tomatoes in my makeshift greenhouse made it through the first couple of frosts, but not through the 25° one a couple nights ago. I got my days screwed up and thought the hard freeze was supposed happen Saturday night/Sunday morning, not Friday night/Saturday morning. First thing in the morning (still only 29°), I […]

Chores. Bleh. Plus a little sewing.

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

Sometimes I like to creep up on the sheep and spy on them through gaps in the barn. I still haven’t finished mucking out the barns, and it’s JUNE. Yes, that’s late, but more critically, that means that we’re heading into hot weather territory, so the sheep will spend the better part of the day […]
