Last year my internet buddy longklaw, or Will if you’re being formal, was getting ready to go to the San Diego Comic Con and I was jealous. I kept sending him tweets about the stuff I would check out and luckily he’s a nice enough person to not tell me to shut the hell up.… Continue reading Payback
For every winner… do you ever feel like you get more than your share of duds? I mean, even when you’re making a winner something has probably gone wrong with it, or is about to go wrong. It’s like, dang, can’t catch a break here. Well that’s definitely how I feel about painting pottery. A… Continue reading Mostly amazing
I pulled this out of my bag the other day: My needle completely splintered out of existence. Does this crap happen to people normally? All that was left was the metal holder and a little nub of wood. I want to say this was the first time something like this has happened with me and… Continue reading When life gives you knitting needle lemons-
So lately I’ve had a big FAIL! word bubble over my head. One day when I got home though, I found this guy waiting for me: This is our new member of the family: Ernie. He was crocheted by my awesome Granma. You might remember her from previous posts. She pops up a lot. She’s… Continue reading Meet Ernie!
Somehow I’ve made progress on something… Okay, so you know things are bad when you get tired of hearing that you’re sick. So I can only imagine how other people feel when they hear that I’m sick. AGAIN… (forever). The first time, I kicked some strong antibiotics back and while I thought it went away… Continue reading Follow the Garter Stitch Road…
Er, Happy Presidents Day? I’ve been doing some whim knitting lately. The first whim knit was kind of a bust: Pattern: The Fidget Knit in some Caron Simply Soft… I guess the whole point of this project was to display fancy pants yarn. Well I don’t have time for yarn snobbery or just general snobbery… Continue reading The pursuit of happyknits!
For my Irish Valentine ❤ I know it’s a day early but I figured, hey, I’m thinking about it, so I should probably do a post before I get back in bed and overdose on antibiotics. (I have the strep, like I get every year. This year I preemptive striked it by seeing a new… Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day!
I went to the yarn store to pick up a book… Oh yeah, and some chunky alpaca yarn. Did she see me coming or what? The thing about yarn stores is that you can’t get mad because it’s not high pressure sales really. (Well there is one store around here that I had a high… Continue reading They saw me coming…
The first rule of Fort Snax is… your hair will definitely look freaky. We had some people over, who (although it’s hard to believe) are also married adults… however it quickly digressed to this: Snackopolis. This is a Fort City. I swear- we try to be upstanding and dignified. However, when it’s cold out and… Continue reading Maybe send a search party because I might have died.
I cried a little today. Turns out, I’m not a lace knitter! But I will prevail. Because lace is not going to get the best of me… just yet anyways. I think I’ll suck it up and let it kick me in the face later. How does Sax feel about it? Just fine: Unless you… Continue reading My Lace Face
