Basket Whip

Sunday, November 29, 2009

I’ve been a bad, bad blogger. But then, I’m quite sure you’ve noticed this. Life has been more than a little out of control of late. I’m here this time just for a very quick update. I have a new pattern release to report. This time it’s a freebie. About this time last year I […]

Summer is here

Thursday, July 2, 2009

Welcome to all who are here for the Sweet Summer blog tour, hosted by Karen and her Cotton Spice blog.
Yes, it’s really been a week since I last posted. Honestly, I can’t believe how quickly a week goes by these days. I think I’m starting to get the real gist of Grandma’s complaint about how […]

Domus Aurea knitting resumes

Thursday, May 21, 2009

What with all the business of naming this pattern, I figured I’d better get a move on, and get some knitting done on it. I pulled it out yesterday afternoon, and knit a few rows or so of the central portion before deciding that it would be really nice to know how much farther I […]

Berry goodness

Thursday, May 14, 2009

The last two seasons I’ve donated a pattern as a prize to the Seasons of Lace KAL. They opened it up this last time so that prize donors could also post their projects. Sometime during the course of the KAL I finally finished that dress I’d been working on for so long for my friend […]

Other stuff

A bit of this and that…
It’s the time of year to submit your finished scarves to the Red Scarf Project. If you need a free pattern to knit, there’s a pretty cabled scarf pattern available over on Knitting Daily.
Ahoy, mateys. It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day! Cap’ns Chumbucket and Slappy have two books […]

Home again

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

As you no doubt figured out from yesterday’s brief post, we are home again. Yea! I have a few more photos from Vegas to share with you before we get to the knitting. First up: Dave in the little tiny kitchen in our suite. Next: our view at night. As nice as it is to […]

Knitting pictures!

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

I actually have progress pictures for you—first time in ages! Let’s start with Algernon. The second one is almost done. I guess you can tell by this what decision I came to yesterday. Yup. Gotta finish the sock. How could I not? So close! If I’d been more awake last night I would have just […]

Viva! Las Vegas

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

Yup. I’m in Vegas right now. With Dave, of course. We’re here to use up some timeshare points before they expire, so it’s not so much a vacation as a change of venue. Three laptop computers on the dining room table, a high-speed Internet connection, plenty of air conditioning, and we’re in like flint.
Once […]

Yarn crawl and Team Bob

Monday, August 4, 2008

Yarn crawl
I played hookey most of Friday. Went on a mini yarn crawl with Kristie and Denise (sadly blogless). I picked Denise up at our regular Monday night meeting place, then drove on to Kristie’s house. From there Kristie drove. She has OnStar, so we never get lost any more. Yea! We piled into Kristie’s […]

Very little

Thursday, July 3, 2008

I haven’t ripped out the huge bag yet. I did some poking around on Ravelry, and found Angela’s Fabulous Felted Bag (on Ravelry). Before and after felting sizes, and gauge are all listed on the pattern. I had one little thing that I wanted clarified, asked, and received a very nice response from Angela within […]
