It’s all good

Friday, January 14th, 2005

I was going to wait until I had a picture of the Café Bastille to post before I wrote anything, but that’s not going to happen for a while. Besides, Nealie asked for an update, and how can you say no to someone whose e-mail address is “WhatsHerToes”? I am not dead. I had a […]

Well, I figured out why I was so violently ill today. Among the other wonderful drugs I take, I swallow a tablet of Wellbutrin each day. It’s the only antidepressant I’ve tried that really agreed with me. I started on it just after Thanksgiving. I take a 300 milligram dose. Up ’til now, I’ve been […]

Cardiovascular system – check

Saturday, January 8th, 2005

Ah, I feel good. I joined a couple of guys from work and we went on a nice leisurely 10-mile bike ride. As much as I complain about the lack of real winter in Texas, I really enjoyed today. It was about 68°, sunny, and hardly any wind. Just beautiful. I rode in a short-sleeved […]

Germ of an idea

I was actually kind of happy when I discovered the chart-line bug in Visiknit the other day. It’s a sign that the code needs my attention, and that’s prompted me to start playing with it again. Kind of like when a puppy comes up and whines at you to pet him. In a very sick, […]

There’s the beginning. It’s done in Rowan Magpie – 100% New Wool. Anyone know what “New Wool” is?

Café Bastille

Monday, January 3rd, 2005

I’ve finally started my next Aran. This one will be done using the Café Bastille Cables pattern from the Fall 2003 Interweave Knits magazine. I’m making it for Thomas the Triathlete. It should knit up really quick, since it uses fairly bulky yarn and size 11 needles. I started it on New Year’s Eve and […]

Accidental Cowboy

(This post was originally authored on December 22nd.) My Indian name is now “Leads Burros Through the Woods in the Dark.” The temperature has dropped precipitously today, going from the mid-50s to 30. I am so glad I’ve got plenty of knit goods on hand to keep myself warm now. And yes, I know, I’m […]
