Happy Hannuka, Bro.

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2003

I’ve just informed my brother Matthew that he’s the recipient of the Sooper Sekrit Projekt. So now I don’t feel bad telling the rest of the world. It’s going in a box today and getting sent to beautiful (and cold) Connecticut. Wear it in good health, dear brother. Send pictures. Also, I gave Kelley Spoon […]

Sooper Sekrit Completed

Monday, December 22nd, 2003

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present the Sooper Sekrit Projekt: It is the XO Cardigan Vest from Folk Vests by Cheryl Oberle, published by Interweave Press. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m due for a double bourbon.

One Armhole Left

Sunday, December 21st, 2003

I said earlier that I try to be very judicious in my use of profanity on this site. In keeping with that spirit, let me say that yesterday was one of the most fucking frustrating days of my knitting career so far. ARRRRGGGG. I got to the Yarn Barn at ten, changed shirts (I rode […]

Both shoulders done

Wednesday, December 17th, 2003

Almost finished now. In addition to having a bit more of this monster of a project nearly done, I wanted to announce that I’ve finally gone out and purchased the domain name SweaterProject.Org. The old URL will work just fine; it will just redirect you to this site. The new name should be a lot […]

The end is nigh

Wednesday, December 17th, 2003

Sameer (my programming partner) and I just did a quick calculation on the Sooper Sekrit Projekt. Here are the calculations we did in everyone’s favorite programming language, Python: # There are 321 stitches in each armhole >>> 321 * 2 642 # there are ten rows of 107 stitches in the collar >>> 107 * […]

There’s just not that much to say about it… Here’s the Sooper Sekrit Projekt as it currently stands. Er, lies. Very, very close to being done. I’m aiming for completion by Friday.

Post-holiday Perambulations

Friday, November 28th, 2003

Today the boys went to look at an airplane that’s for sale at the airport in Albuquerque. (My sister’s husband, his father, and my stepfather are all pilots.) The women went to Nob Hill (route 66) to look at a LYS and do some home & kitchen shopping. Guess which group I was with? My […]

Over the River and Through the Woods

Thursday, November 27th, 2003

Well, not over the river and through the woods, really. More over the hill country and through 600 miles of desert. And the destination was not Grandma’s house, it was my sister’s house. I am blogging this chilly morning from my sister’s house in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico. I drove out yesterday with my mom […]

Sooper Seekrit Progress

Friday, November 21st, 2003

Slowly but surely. And surely very slowly. I’m sooo looking forward to going on vacation so that I can spend a solid day on my projects. I’ve been pretty quiet lately, mostly because there hasn’t been a lot of knitting progress to report. I’ve been having a very good streak at work though. My partner […]
