Too good to pass up

Saturday, September 30th, 2006

I’d already promised myself that I was going to wait a while before posting another kilt pic, but this one – taken by my friend Isabelle – was just too damn funny to hold on to. Damn ventilation grates.

Choose your own caption

It was gently pointed out to me that I’m overdue for a gratuitous kilt photo. I tried a couple of times to come up with a good title for this one, but my brain just isn’t engaging tonight. So – whomever comes up with the best caption for this photo wins a random drawing from […]

Sometimes, there is no right answer.

Remember the KIP question a few posts back? Michelle – one of the ladies at the Sunday stitch ‘n bitch I go to – asked me if I’d come to any resolution, and that got me thinking about it some more. I decided that I’ve found a problem with the English language (and probably any […]

Gettin’ the photo props!

I got two great bits of news yesterday. First, thanks to Libby for using my tip jar on the VisiKnit page! My first tip! I really appreciate it. I hope the program continues to be useful for everyone. Second, Thomas the Triathlete The God of Hellfire let me know that this picture, which I took […]

Showin’ some cable!

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

Now this is what I’m talkin’ about! It really looks like a sock now! (A little underexposed to bring out the dramatic and stirring cable work. ) Of course, that doesn’t stop people from asking what I’m making when I’m KIPing. (How exactly does one form the gerund of the acronym KIP? I really want […]

Sockaggedon Approaches…

Friday, September 15th, 2006

Damn, time flies by. I’ve got a week to finish the Mark II Kilt Hose, and then, as surely as night will fall upon us all*, the Sock Wars will be upon us. But for those of you who aren’t participating in the great sock throwdown of 2006, perhaps you’d like to match wits with […]
