All quiet on the knitting front

Well, the knitting has been happening, but I’ve been pushing to finish my February Lady Sweater, and not really taking pictures of things. However, I did finish it, and I snapped some pics of other projects today, so here we go! Last weekend, which I thought was THE Knit in […]

Sunny days are here, for now

I believe that, if it doesn’t rain between now and the nighttime, we will have gone 48 hours without any rain whatsoever. Apparently, I’m feeling inspired by all the sunshine. Is it silly to want to buy these buttons and then find the perfect matching yellow yarn to knit a […]

Photographic lament

Oh, Florida weather. Florida’s nickname is the Sunshine State, but anyone who’s lived here long enough and perhaps visited frequently enough will be able to tell you that during the summer, it rains every. Single. Day. And I like the rain, and we apparently always need the rain when it […]

Year of Natural Fibers

The United Nations General Assembly appointed 2009 as the International Year of Natural Fibres. They probably did this a while ago and I’ve just been living under a rock. I am totally in support of anything that emphasizes natural fibers. I mean, come on, which is cuter: or Exactly. BUT […]

In Memoriam

Over here in the States, today is the day that we remember and support the men and women of the Armed Forces who have given their lives and who continue to risk their lives to protect the values that we as a society hold dear. I am grateful to my […]

Something about a shawl?

There was something that people wanted me to talk about? A scarf? A shawl? Oh right, the shawl I knit for my friend’s wedding. This one, right? The gory details for anyone who wants to skip the actual discussion: Pattern: Nikol Lohr’s Woodland Shawl Yarn: 696 yards (3 balls) of […]

Very soon, the Shawl Post

Soon, very, very soon, I will be posting about the Wedding Shawl. But first, I’m going to show off my new yarns. This skein and the next two yarns in the photos are payment yarn for a project I worked on a little while ago. That beauty up there is […]

Last minute

I leave tomorrow morning for Colorado, and I am so excited. I get to see a couple of friends that I don’t see regularly (you know, that whole “they live in Colorado” thing), I get to see mountains (seriously, the flatness of Florida is underwhelming), and I have an opportunity […]

What to do, what to do?

I have finished Chrysta’s Wedding Shawl. Sorry, no pictures until after the wedding, as I want Chrysta herself to see the full, finished product before anyone else, but I’m excited to have finished it. More details about the shawl when I post the final pictures. Finishing the shawl was like […]

The generosity of others

People can be incredibly awesome. I am quite frequently blown away by how awesome people can be. Take Preita for example. She recently celebrated her blogiversary, and in a truly Hobbit-like fashion decided to have a giveaway contest to celebrate. My number was drawn, which was a welcome change, as […]
