Friday, January 19th, 2007

It’s all I can do not to get started right this second. Here’s the plan.

FO Circular Needle Case/Labors of my treat

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Last night, I treated myself to some unfettered crafting time to compensate for my loss of fancy knitting class (which Kelly Sue’s already boasting about–sometimes I hate living so far from civilization…I need snow tires…). Here’s what I made: First, a hanging circular needle bag. I’ve been dying for a way to organize and couldnt’ […]

Meanies.

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006

A few days ago, I made the mistake of googling “Katamari earmuffs” to see where they ended up and I was horrified to learn that several people said I look like a man! A man! I wasn’t prepared for that. Fat, frumpy, haggard, retarded, stupid, sure. But mannish? I’m not mannish! Am I? I’m a […]

FO Alterknits Rug, Handspun Hats

Thursday, November 2nd, 2006

Yay! Finally finished re-knitting this a couple days ago. This was my second go at it, as I realized after the first attempt that I picked stupid colors for my home, so I tried dyeing the whole thing, which made it unravel from the center, so I had to frog the whole damn thing and […]

Stashbusting!

Sunday, June 4th, 2006

I culled out a great big bag of stuff for the flash your stash. Hooray me! I also wasted a bunch of time reorganizing my yarn yet again. I moved all the stuff in the cabinet into the 3 lockers closest to my room, and made lists of what’s in each locker, so I can […]

Tick, tock…

Friday, May 19th, 2006

It’s my last night before the first dummy of my book arrives and I have to be all hard-working. I’m going to see how far I can get on the One-Skein Wonder shrug I just bought from Glampyre.

See what you’ve done to me? I like cables now.

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

When I started knitting, I hated cables. And philosphically, I still do. I would never buy a cabled sweater, for instance. But they’re just so fun to knit. I was an acting major in college before I came to my senses (sort of). We had to do rotations of all the production departments–lighting, set construction, […]

Swarves. Or scatches? Scwatches? Sqatches? Sasquatches? Wait, what?

Sunday, May 14th, 2006

So I’ve been swatching yarn trying to pick the very bestest so I can start crocheting my big project for Vickie Howell’s book, but I decided to just go ahead and use the whole ball so I can get a better sense of drape and yardage. I still haven’t found a yarn/color combination I’m happy […]
