Ha! I bet you didn't think you'd hear from me until June. That's probably not an unreasonable assumption. There has been a bit of knitting in the last month, but I have also been hampered by injury and the plague. So I started the year with my rotator cuff injury,... Continue reading

I had an incredibly busy 2017. It was so busy that I got very, very little knitting done comparatively speaking. I knit fewer pairs of socks in 2017 than in any other year since I started knitting (which was 2009, for the record). And I even missed my blogaversary -... Continue reading

It's the end of August. I haven't blogged since the beginning of May. The whole summer has passed me by. (And yet, I pay $20 a month for the privilege of being too lazy to blog). There has been knitting and a bunch of other stuff. There has also been... Continue reading

Well, we're in what feels like Q6 2016. The disastrous year continues. Crazy work continues. Lack of crafting time continues. Lots of stuff has happened, and not much has happened. In the lots category, the Lad graduated with his BFA in Interdisciplinary Arts (because they don't do a major in... Continue reading

I suspect I have lost all five of my readers. It's not surprising. I have been so absent since (gasp) December that you are all quite reasonable in thinking that I have died. I haven't, but my knitting and crafting and general spare time certainly has. I'll give you the... Continue reading

Don't let the door bang your a** on the way out. 2016 has been a spectacularly awful year. And it has been a spectacularly busy year. I am crawling to the finish line of the year. Unfortunately, the first third of 2017 isn't looking any better. Speaking of a spectacularly... Continue reading

I don't really understand American politics, but this presidential election has me on tenterhooks. I can't bear to watch. But I can't stop watching. I will distract myself with blogginess. There's only one new yarn-related item. The rest is all scenic stuff and whatnot. I'll start with the sock. I... Continue reading

One of my co-workers asked the other day whether Movember is still a thing. Shudder. I hope not. I'm all for the prostate cancer awareness and whatnot, but all that facial hair makes me twitch. And speaking of facial hair, allow me to rant about getting older. My once leonine... Continue reading

The Other Jennifer PM'd me on Rav to ask whether I've given up blogging. The answer is no. But I have been crazy busy at work (again). We had a big filing which resulted in a bunch of very late nights at work. I even had to get subs for... Continue reading

Well, I certainly got my money's worth out of Typepad in August. Not so this month. I should get cracking. I still haven't done the museum post, but that can wait. It has finally dropped to a mostly reasonable temperature here. It has even been (gasp) cool once or twice... Continue reading

This will be yet another random post, but it will be full of visual delights. I was thinking about about doing the Museum post last night, but then I got lost in the pictures. It's amazing how much detail I miss in person, but it's all there to see in... Continue reading

I'm running out of month here. And it's late and I'm tired and I'm hungry and I want to get back to working on the Stripe Study Shawl which I started in July but which I hate but which I want to finish so I can start a shawl or... Continue reading

Okay, I'm going to leave the Museum and Butchart Gardens and other random Victoria posts until later. I figure most of you are reading this for the fiber content. And the sooner I get this up and done, the sooner I can get stuff into Rav. On my fabulous trip... Continue reading

I was so tired last night that I was falling asleep and had to go lie down. So no blog post yesterday. After today's blogging effort(s), I am going to take a nap. A girl has priorities, you know. Let me start with my trip to Victoria. On my way... Continue reading

I may be able to squeeze in some fibery / fibrey goodness into this post. It seems a little cruel to have a knitting blog where there are posts without any yarn. But because I am currently obsessing about clouds (and no, I will not use the trite phrase that... Continue reading

Why, yes, gentle readers (all six of you), you have now been reading my blog for six years. I started my blog at the very beginning of August 2010. Back then I had a) more disposable income and b) more disposable time on my hands, so I blogged daily or... Continue reading

*****I was going to call this post Project 300 because I focus on my 300th project on Rav. But as I get closer to the bottom, I see this is more about art than about my shawl, so I have re-named the blog post.**** I always feel that I should... Continue reading
