I'm feeling much better, thank you very much. I was a very, very sick little boy. I was listless. I didn't eat. I threw up. I slept round the clock. I didn't jump on any furniture. I didn't even eat my poop. All my usual symptoms when Mommy goes out... Continue reading

i so agree.....but the only silver lining there was that the seams were so small!!!

I used some odds and ends of Cascade 220 for the rabbit and some bits and pieces of sport and dk for the clothes and legs. I think the shoes were dk wt. This is pretty much what Julie recommends and the pattern adjusts for the different weight of wool.

It's warm. It's wooly. It's done. And it fits. Sort of. It's big, like a big, warm, wooly hug....and I'm sort of OK with that. Should I ever knit it again (which I probably won't) I would go down a needle size and a pattern size (could this have been... Continue reading

That was a stripey strip blanket I made last year.....random fingering weight yarns, all garter stitch, random width strips, held together with narrow 11 stitch strips. It was one of the most fun blankets I've ever made. Totally mindless, but I love the way it turned out....and loved that it literally ate up all my leftovers!!

Hi, My Friends. Freddy here. You might think I'm saying my weekend was so great because I'm surrounded by all this wonderful wooly-ness. Nah. I'm surrounded by wooly-ness all the time. No big deal. I woke up Friday morning, and I saw my food container, my heart pills, and my... Continue reading

We got snow. And ice. And COLD. And it totally 'counted'. (If no sign of grass is counts as a real snowfall.) We measured about 8" in the end. Temps dipped into the single digits. It totally 'counted'. Everything shut up and closed down all over town. Schools were... Continue reading
