Post-holiday Perambulations

Friday, November 28th, 2003

Today the boys went to look at an airplane that’s for sale at the airport in Albuquerque. (My sister’s husband, his father, and my stepfather are all pilots.) The women went to Nob Hill (route 66) to look at a LYS and do some home & kitchen shopping. Guess which group I was with? My […]

Over the River and Through the Woods

Thursday, November 27th, 2003

Well, not over the river and through the woods, really. More over the hill country and through 600 miles of desert. And the destination was not Grandma’s house, it was my sister’s house. I am blogging this chilly morning from my sister’s house in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico. I drove out yesterday with my mom […]

Sooper Seekrit Progress

Friday, November 21st, 2003

Slowly but surely. And surely very slowly. I’m sooo looking forward to going on vacation so that I can spend a solid day on my projects. I’ve been pretty quiet lately, mostly because there hasn’t been a lot of knitting progress to report. I’ve been having a very good streak at work though. My partner […]

Humming Along

Tuesday, November 18th, 2003

So I’m humming along on the Sooper Sekrit Projekt again, thinking about good music to knit by. I knit English style, meaning I feed the yarn in from my right hand and “throw” the yarn around the needles with my right index finger. When I really get going, I can minimize my movements so that […]

Does this mean Worf knits?

Monday, November 17th, 2003

According to the Sci-Fi Character Survey, I am: Worf Heh. Gimme a good set of swallow caseins over a bat’leth any day.

Like Rabbits

Sunday, November 16th, 2003

Pat just e-mailed me this picture of a kufi she made. (Pat, forgive me if I just flubbed your gender.) It’s a trend! Awesome use of beads here. This styrofoam head is the envy of all its friends.

Of Hats

Sunday, November 16th, 2003

Yet another kufi: This one is going to Tara, a waitress at the Brew Moon where I go to listen to the folk jam session on Thursday nights. This last week she was wearing this really cool Aran style cap – it was really cute. I asked to look at it and we got to […]

Progress . . . I think

Sunday, November 16th, 2003

When I got to the Yarn Barn this morning, I starte on a new row of the Sooper Seekrit Projekt. But I discovered that I had flubbed the cable pattern about eight rows back. So I had to rip out a whole lot of stitches and pick it back up. I was at the store […]

Pied Cyclist

Friday, November 14th, 2003

Yesterday I was taking a leisurely bike ride through downtown San Antonio. There’s been a lot of new investment in the area in recent years, and Houston street in particular is really shaping up nicely. I was pedalling around there enjoying the almost chilly air when I stopped at a red light and a Cadillac […]

Aran on Hold

Tuesday, November 11th, 2003

Well, it’s not quite where I wanted it to be, but I did wear my Aran sweater on my birthday. Now it’s going on hold again for a while. I need to make progress on the Sooper Sekrit Projekt, the candle flame shawl (aka panties) and another Christmas project. I’ll return to the Aran anon. […]
