Remember how I mentioned "designing" a sock pattern? I don't really think it counts as a "pattern" because it's a no brainer, but whatever. I found some shrimp yarn deep deeeeeep in the stash and thought I would try to... Continue reading

A week ago, I was curled up in a very cold house debating whether or not I should turn the heat on. I did because there's a limit to how good a sport I can be regarding the weather. Today,... Continue reading

Pulled some vintage yarn out of the stash and cast on for another Easy Hipster Cowl. It didn't take long for me to figure out the issue I had with this pattern last time. While I understand what the chart... Continue reading

It's a hat. Yes, another blue hat. No, I am not becoming one of those people. Yes, that is a really yellow tub. Storms do give us amazing sunsets, and since there was no tornado in my back yard, I... Continue reading

It was kind of exciting. What with the bright sunshine while it rained as we listened to the thunder. Then there was the hail, a funnel cloud and a tornado warning. Just another Wednesday night in the burbs... No, I... Continue reading

Found that photo on my phone the other day. No idea where it came from, when it happened or why I took the photo, but whatever. Thankfully, the little mysteries don't really bother me anymore. Perhaps that's because I'm a... Continue reading

The house smells like corned beef. I am currently baking brownies for someone I love, who can't eat them right now. Yeah, I'm eating for someone I love. Think about that for a minute... Saw this on the faceyspace, mentioned... Continue reading

I have this terrible habit of not reading the whole pattern before I start. I'm a bit like a fire horse in that way. Just point me in the direction of the cast on numbers and charts and I'm good.... Continue reading

Heard this in the car this morning. Instant chair dancing. It always reminds me a certain beautiful young man. I think it's the 'thank you, miss' that does it. /ahem The mug was my purchase of the week last week.... Continue reading

The other day, someone started a thread on Ravelry about how people should smile in their finished object photos and how designers should use smiling models. Selfies or otherwise. Lots of people went in and explained reasons why folks don't... Continue reading

A couple/few months ago, I ordered this fiber from a new to me vendor. She was quick to ship, added thoughtful goodies and wrote a lovely note that she added to the package. I was having trouble figuring out what... Continue reading

Season 2 of Vikings starts tonight. I cannot wait. I'm starting to think I need a corgi named Ragnar. Not that I need/want another life to be responsible for because wow... I really don't. However, spring is here and corgis... Continue reading

Let's try this again... No, not Mrs. Squishy. It's been drizzling since Thursday. We need the water but the charm has worn off. Last week was full of birthdays. The weekend was full of laughter, people who know me well... Continue reading

I'm so sorry it didn't work out, sweetie. I also very grateful that you knit it before I did because a certain someone /ahem gave me that exact pattern. I have a big giant head but not that big. *L* Hope the next hat works out better!
