This morning we had snow. Not a lot of accumulation, but blustery. Walking Victor was an exercise in snow down the back of my sweat jacket in one direction and a calm winter storm (if any storm can be called... Continue reading

Mild mannered, focused corporate CEO by day (though that face isn't giving out any bonuses soon) and cucumber-powered super hero by night, behold Q-cumberman. Yeah, we love the PhotoShop. Q is slowly learning to enjoy some solids. Not that he... Continue reading

So, gifts for babies. I know it is tempting to make sweaters or other clothes, but after my first experience making clothes that fit for about 6 hours I now make blankets, hats (aiming for year size), or toys. For... Continue reading

The past two weeks have been 10 things you do that your spouse doesn't do but could and 10 things that your spouse does that you could do but don't. What a mouthful. Since I didn't do the first one... Continue reading

Q shows how big his heart is! About once a week or so I get asked how I am enjoying Lexington. It feels like such a weird question. I don't feel like I have a good basis for comparison. I... Continue reading

Between my brother and some of my friends, it feels like the world has exploded with new babies. Q is only 21 weeks old, so the newness hasn't worn off of the experience. While things have calmed down a bit... Continue reading

Today is 10 for Tuesday, and while I do have 10 items that make me feel like a grown up (and I might pepper them in here), I really wanted to share a hat. My best friend has two children,... Continue reading

My husband is a king of myphotostitch.com. This is the third or fourth item that he has made in the past month or two for me to stitch. He pulls them together using sprite art. This name badge is supposed... Continue reading

2013 was a busy year. I relocated with my family halfway cross the country. We sold a house and bought a new one. Our family increased in size, and my job changed. I knit a lot of things and got... Continue reading

Q is just a tiny bit skeptical, isn't he. I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday. With the holiday in the middle of the week, it feels strangely brief. I am just used to the holiday falling closer to... Continue reading

Picture from November. He is bigger now. So, this is the face of somebody knowing his mom is learning to drive. Yeah. Kind of grumpy and skeptical. Concerned even. I passed my permit test a little over a week ago... Continue reading

Today is the last Friday of my maternity leave. It is a bittersweet feeling to be going back to work even though I love my job. This feeling makes it much more understandable why some people drop out of the... Continue reading

I hear the crickets chirp when I look at the blog. Metaphorical crickets that is. I'm obviously still adjusting to new parenthood with its miriad blessings. Q is already bigger from when this picture was taken nearly a month ago.... Continue reading

And Q. Camp Loopy is an awesome boost to my knitterly productivity each summer. It proves that when allowed to pick my own projects (pattern and yarn) I can complete blankets and sweaters in under a month. But I need... Continue reading

One of the hardest thing about the move, outside of my Boston friends, is Gather Here. I haven't really found a new LYS (or LFS, etc.). I haven't been to a knitting night since July. I didn't expect to go... Continue reading

I don't know about you, but I definitely have too many projects that I want to get done. Christmas is only a couple of short months away, but most of the projects I want to do aren't even gifts. They... Continue reading

Yawn! When my mom was here at the beginning of October, we took her to what I jokingly referred to as crafter's row. Rosemont Garden has a bead shop, a gift shop, a random vintage/antique shop and Rebelle (fiber shop).... Continue reading

Baby Q now has the longest hair (of the humans) in the house. I told my friends that I was going to chop all of my hair off when I had my baby. Well, Q was born a few weeks... Continue reading

Bambino time! So, our baby isn't the only one to celebrate. We have a couple of friends who are expecting their first early next year, so when we were going to get together I made ice cream. Yes, that is... Continue reading

Stage 1 is complete and a beautiful baby boy is born! Now comes the rest of the project, a WIP that will last 18 or more years and be full of love, fun, games, and certainly a few trials*. Oh,... Continue reading

So, this is how far behind I am. While my in-laws were in town, we all went to the Melting Pot. None of us had never been there and I had no idea exactly how fancy it would be (and... Continue reading

So, this past Tuesday I was officially full term. This Thursday we got a crib and my husband and our friends put it together. We aren't quite ready yet. We don't have a crib mattress yet (it is on the... Continue reading

Or there will be matchy-matchy action going on. The last of the Camp Loopy projects for 2013 was to use at least 800 yards of yarn. Now I had already made a baby blanket for project 2, so my options... Continue reading
