Racing the clock with a cardigan

Saturday, September 29th, 2007

I’m hoping I get this thing done before it starts getting cool around here. Not that it’s ever exactly *warm* in my office, but I’d like to have it finished and blocked before I have to wear it from my house to work. In any case, it’s coming along nicely, warts and all. Working on […]

New page: photography for knitters

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

I thought already wrote this entry once, but it seems to have vanished into the ether. Feh. So, new page up in the sidebar: Photography for Knitters. This page is a lot less complete than I originally envisioned, but I spent so long trying to get it right that I decided to just go ahead […]

It’s all about the words you choose

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

There’s a news story that’s going on right now that is really, really pissing me off on several levels. Here’s the story: Star Simpson, a student at MIT, went to the airport to pick up a friend. On her jacket she had a breadboard with several LEDs and a nine-volt battery that powered them. Now, […]

Come for the knitting, stay for the Kilt pr0n

Friday, September 21st, 2007

I’m under no illusions here. I know that the recent and massive influx of traffic to my site is due to Stephanie linking to me yesterday. When a ravening whack of knitters descends upon my server, it’s not because they’re here looking for great patterns or fine yarn. No, you’re all here for the kilt […]

Harlatorious Outing 2007

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

For the second time in three days, I drove to Houston and back last night. I got back at 2:30 am this morning and I am a little jittery from lack of sleep, even though the sleep I did experience was exquisite. What would make me do this kind of thing, you ask? I did […]

Project : Sweater Project Cardigan. Project.

Saturday, September 15th, 2007

A few months back I started a variation on Brynne Sutton’s Samus Aran cardigan. I picked it up again recently because I’m getting embarrassed by the fact that I wear a machine-knit cardigan at work. It just won’t do, you know? Unfortunately, the hem which I completed isn’t quite wide enough to fit my waist. […]

Team Luna – US Tour, 2007

Saturday, September 8th, 2007

I had a very, very rare pleasure this afternoon. My dear friend Cari Luna and her family are in the middle of their cross-country road trip from Brooklyn to Portland and they swung through San Antonio! Yeah, I know – those city folk have *no* sense of direction. Anyway, because of their very circuitous route […]

Labor Day

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

So last Saturday, I drove up to my mom & stepdad’s place to get ready for a barbecue on Sunday. I’d invited Mark and Virginia and Mark’s daughters up for an afternoon of feasting and river play. I packed my cameras, knitting, and sundries and headed out to get ready for the weekend. My mother […]
