Happy Birthday Michelle!

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

So, my buddy Michelle’s birthday was this past weekend, and a bunch of us wanted to surprise her. Unfortunately her schedule wasn’t very accommodating and we didn’t get the surprise visit opportunity until last night. Mary, Enid and I got her a nice bag of loot and then showed up very unexpectedly on her porch. […]

Puppy Sitting

Monday, January 28th, 2008

Spent my weekend taking care of Beau, my mom & stepdad’s new puppah. Although that shot does show his cuteness, this one’s a lot more representative of his normal state. He’s rarely sitting still. He’s like an Ewok on crystal meth.

Time to divest myself of this project

Vest is done! All that remains is the washing and light blocking. Now on to socks with a vengance. I’m about to finish a pair for myself, and I decided to use some of Amanda’s awesome Fusion yarn in the Serenity colorway to make a pair for a friend who’s having a really rough time […]

We had a Dance Dance Revolution competition at work this week. I won :-).

It’s not all vests, you know

So, about that vest I’m working on . . . yeah, it’s not done yet. But I’m getting so close! I’ve got a mental block on picking up stitches, you see. I hate it. Haaaaate. I don’t know why – it doesn’t hurt, it’s not that hard, it’s just something that I approach with extreme […]

Vacation

Friday, January 18th, 2008

Sorry it’s been slow here lately. I was on vacation last week in Portland. Lilith asked me to be her date for a friend’s wedding in Portland, Oregon, which is a city I dearly love. So, we’ve gotten back together. Yeah, I know, my love life does not follow linear paths. It was a wonderful […]

If I knit any slower I’d be frogging

Sunday, January 6th, 2008

Good grief. And I thought I was going to have this done by Christmas. I honestly believed it was possible. It is, at long last, clearly identifiable as a vest. It could still become a v-neck sweater in theory, and I’ve actually got enough yarn left to do that, but no, this puppy is on […]
