Almost . . . done . . .

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

All the big stuff has been moved. I’ve slept the last two nights in my new room. There were casualties in the move. I’m going to be cooking Thomas the Triathlete a kick-ass dinner as soon as the dust settles to make up for his sprained ankle. It’s official: in terms of volume, I own […]

Today’s the Day

Sunday, June 25th, 2006

. . . finally. I actually reserved the UHaul truck to carry stuff* to my new home. Have I mentioned that I *hate* moving? I rate it below having a tarantula crawl up my arm. Of course that’s not really fair, since I had a pet tarantula for a while as a kid, but you […]

Heads Up – Finito

Friday, June 23rd, 2006

I have a sneaking suspicion that this cap’s going to be a little bit too loose in the brim. I may have to bust out the elastic and snug it up a bit. But hey, it’s done and I think it turned out quite nicely.

Mazel Tov!

Great Scott! Thumper has finally arrived! And apparently the labor was a doozy. Congratulations Cari, and Happy Father’s Day to Billy. I have finally gotten back to some real knitting. Witness the start of one of Leigh Radford’s Heads-Up Hats from Interweave Knits’ Spring 2005 issue: This cap has some interesting construction in it. It’s […]

A riddle

Thursday, June 15th, 2006

Q.) What’s big and white with a 20″ screen and doesn’t do a damn thing? A.) My computer! I wandered in to check my mail and read news this morning to find that my computer was powered down. I couldn’t get it to power back up. Freaking wonderful. Being a Mac, it’s not just a […]

Order Up

Monday, June 12th, 2006

Finished on Saturday at the Yarn Barn: one ultra-minimalist baby cap. I’m thinking it needs a little crocheted flower on it. I also got a couple of pretty nice pictures up at my mom’s place this weekend. I’m especially happy with the shot of the humming birds at the bar. Oh, and I got the […]

Not how I intended to start the weekend, but still . . .

I was supposed to be at the Yarn Barn by now. *sigh* As Kelly is fond of pointing out, sometimes I just get focused on some weird-ass thing and cannot let it go. If only I could apply this in a deliberate fashion, I’d be in charge of a small country by now. A while […]

Kitty Adoption

Tuesday, June 6th, 2006

A little over a week and a half ago, my sweetie found a kitten on her doorstep. The poor little thing was covered in mud and fleas and had a respiratory infection. As said sweetie was leaving town for a while, and as I am allergic to cats, I brought the kitten in to work […]

Soul Bandage

Monday, June 5th, 2006

When I was in middle school (fifth through seventh grades in these parts), there was a 7-11 just down the road that I hung out in all the time. It was across the street from the high school that I would later go to. One summer when I was in Summer School, I would loiter […]
