Here’s the project that has driven me to such distraction that I started knitting the alien thingy: Absolutely captivating, oui? I’m going to make it about twice as long as it is right now and then it will form the bottom, sides and strap of the monk’s travel satchel. Seed stitch ’till the cows come […]

Here you go. A sock with boobs. Cari, you’re right. I’ve had over 750 hits on the beefcake pic since I posted it. Maybe I should segue this blog into softcore?
I finished the first version of the alien chest-burster last night. I say “first version” because it didn’t come out looking so much like an alien as a small sock with boobs. (I added a couple of bobbles to give the appearance of vestigial legs.) I’ll either have to undo the decreases and make it […]
The monk’s travel bag is coming along nicely. It’s still just the strap, but that’s going faster than I thought it would. But a yard of seed stitch is only marginally better than garter stitch, so I decided I needed something else to keep me interested. Something that was creative and let me practice a […]

I’ve been blogging more but saying less about knitting lately. Cari has been inspiring me with her tragicomic tale of the Chickami and other w.i.p., so here’s what I’ve got going on at the moment, in no particular order. First, there’s the multicolored hat I’m making for Ann B. It’s done in two shades of […]
Anyone see the Pixar mini-film “For The Birds”? This was taken at my friends the Bethels’ up in Kerrville this weekend. They’ve got a backyard you would never believe.
54.76190476190476% of me is a huge nerd! How about you? Take that, Spoon. From the depths of my parent’s basement, I spit stab at thee. (Hey, I’m only half-geek.)
So on Monday, I went to work really looking forward to my day. I had my violin practice after work, and I’d been having a crick in my neck all weekend, so I decided that I would go get myself a massage at lunch. I fixed random bugs for four hours then got on my […]
