Just a quick post before I take off. I’m headed to Scarborough Faire to contribute to the Utilikilt cause. If I’m not back by Monday, look for me somewhere along I-35. Yeah. That’ll narrow it down.

Concerning Throwies

Monday, April 24th, 2006

Since before recorded history, humankind have sought to make their presence known by modifying their environment. (Before recorded history, we did a pretty crappy job of it because, well, there’s no recorded history.) This need for permanence has taken many forms – cave paintings, rock piles, inscriptions, art. Last Saturday night, I joined a group […]

My friend Gina and me at Dawn’s wedding a couple weeks ago. Note the in-progress scarf – a gift for the bride that got bound off about twenty minutes after this photo was taken.

Sunday, April 16th, 2006

Notice that there’s been a dearth of knitting content here lately? Yeah, me too. Let’s see what we can do about that. WIP list: Rip the second kilt ho Black and white sock Glove repair I guess “rip the second kilt ho” isn’t really a work in progress, but it’s a task that needs to […]

Sweater Project Interruptus!

Friday, April 7th, 2006

Over the past two days there has been a precipitous decline in traffic to Sweater Project. I couldn’t figure it out until my friend Anton and I started looking at some rules I recently implemented to redirect people from my old Movable Type archives to the WordPress pages.

I can’t wait for the movie

My place smells better than yours

Tuesday, April 4th, 2006

I finally swung by the post office this morning to retrieve a package that the wonderful, the adorable, the absolutely essential and irreplacable Urban GypZ sent me last week. Witness my care package: We’ve got a moon-face bath fizzy, four packets of bath tea herbal soak w/bath salts, and a couple pieces of genuine GypZ-made […]
