Fanning and Feathering

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Between fiddling with my camera and organizing my stash, I’ve gotten a little bit of knitting in. Not nearly as much as St. Stephanie, true, but it’s my own little contribution to the world of cozy feet. The pattern is the Feather and Fan sock from Socks Socks Socks by Elaine Rowley (the pattern itself […]

My niece says I’ve got a problem.

Saturday, November 18th, 2006

I re-arranged my room today so that I could then do some stash organizing. I dumped all but two of my bags of stash on the bed. This of course does not include the yarn in my knitting basket, or the box of lovely cashmere that Kaetchen sent me for my birthday, or the odd […]

I was going to write about some new things I’ve learned today, but something serious came up that is far more important. One of my closest web friends (and one of the few I’ve met in real life), Pippy, just lost a very close friend. Please stop by her blog and leave a friendly word. […]

And then, suddenly . . . nothing. With any luck I’ll have another decent post tomorrow showing some sock progress, but tonight I’m going to be resurrecting my iMac. It very solidly died on the eve of my birthday, and I’ve just acquired the means to fix it (I hope). So, for the time being […]

Kid ‘n Ewe 2006

Kid ‘n Ewe is going on right now up in Boerne. The plan was that I’d drive up there in a kilt appropriate to the weather, find my mom, find the other local knitters and knitbloggers, drool over the Brooks Farm yarn, skritch the cute critters and spend too much money on fiberly things. Yeah, […]

Let’s place a marker here.

Saturday, November 11th, 2006

On this day in 1971 in Phoenix, Arizona, something very precidented happened. Yeah, what I said. Very precidented. A bunch of drunk Marines took over a bar and sang the Corps’ hymn very loudly, daring any Army, Navy or Airforce weenies to step up. If there were some Navy Seals present, there might have been […]

Let’s bring back some levity

Snippet of conversation between a classmate in my Digital Photography class and me: Her (upon learning I’m a knitter): “Knitters have very old souls.” Me: “I know, I got mine used.”

Vaya Con Dios, Jazz.
