This morning I hooked up with some of the ladies from the Yarn Barn and went up to Austin to bask in the quirky Canuk radiance of The Yarn Harlot, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. I have been wanting to meet her ever since the Knitting Olympics. Not to thank her, mind you – no, I wanted to […]
. . . and I think you know who you are: Lord of the Rings (Photoshopped) This got my Monday off to a good start.
As per Michelle‘s request, here’s what the back of the Samus Aran looks like. You can see why I’m refering to to this as the Flying Spaghetti Monster while I’m working on it. I think I’m going to take a break from it today and cast on for a nice simple hat or something. Maybe […]

Remember to always keep an emergency project in the glove compartment. Get your generator here.
Well, I’m home. All of my stuff is now either in the new house or in the trunk of my car. I turned the keys to the apartment in to the leasing office just after noon today. I’m officially moved out. And exhausted. I want to lie down and sleep for a week. But there’s […]
