Yarn Thing
I’m going to be interviewed on a live podcast on Thursday! Eek.
Yup. Marly, Yarn Thing, will be chatting me up on the air on Thursday afternoon at 4 pm Mountain time. I’m excited, scared, nervous, honored, totally blown away… I’ve never done anything like this before. It’ll be fun. (It’s my new mantra: […]

Basket Whip shout out

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

Yup. I bought a pile of luscious yarn at Stitches West last month. I’ll tell you all about it, but not today. Today I want to tell you about what I saw in the latest Vogue Knitting magazine this morning.
I’d just finished the last three pages of Steinbeck’s Cannery Row, and was looking around […]

Elann yarn pron

I know. I haven’t blogged in an age. I’ve been busy. Plus the dearth of real comments has made me wonder if my efforts at continuing to spend the time blogging are at all worthwhile. Honestly, I received 25 spam comments since October 1, and only five real comments since September 1. Though I love […]

Blocking wires, and…

New from Cat Bordhi
Cat Bordhi has written the second book in her New Pathways for Sock Knitters series: Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters. I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely looking forward to getting my hands on this book. I love a lot of the socks in the first book in this series, […]

Eight years ago today our country was shaken by terrorist attack. I had this picture and quote on my old web site for a long time. It felt right to bring it back today. In remembrance.
A great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest […]

Grasshopper and knitting

Monday, August 24, 2009

After a yummy stuffed pork chop dinner and a movie, we wandered out onto the deck last night for a short nightcap and to enjoy the evening air. Ricki loves evenings on the deck. She was out there and waiting for us long before we had everything arranged. We finally got our ducks in a […]

Stole progress and Twist

Monday, August 17, 2009

I haven’t been blogging, obviously. Sorry about that. I’ll post as I can, as much as I can, as often as I can. Not that the schedule’s likely to change much in the near future. I hope you can hang with me…
Thornbury progress
I’ve made marvelous progress on the oriel shawl. I’ve done several repeats […]

Knit, rip, knit, rip, knit

The oriel shawl
Finally. It took quite a bit of figuring, tinking, knitting, tinking, erasing, and figuring, but I finally got it. The top edge of the bias-knit pattern looks full, complete, as good as the center of the thing. Finally. I spent days with scrap yarn, and charts coming out of my ears. Well, it […]

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 […]

No pictures today

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

Sorry, no photos for you today. We got home from TNNA in Columbus at 5:30 yesterday evening, and are still recovering. It was an awesome trip. I can’t even begin to tell you how glad we are that we went. We met fabulous folks, each took a class, met fabulous folks, went to the ballgame […]
