So, obviously I made these socks a while ago because I have a child tumbling around my house somewhere these days. A big hearty baby. That baby is also my excuse for not making more stuff and not blogging recently. But you guys know, I’m always full of excuses. I’m just hoping a baby is… Continue reading Pregnancy Socks for my Big Fat Foot
Here in the heart of it all we have been getting record rain falls. I only say it like that because that’s how our banks’ appraiser put it when he observed “minor dampness” in our future basement. In fact, he only had really awesome things to say about our future house. Everyone who goes through… Continue reading April socks and showers
It’s funny really. Actually, I seem to saying that quite a bit lately even though funny isn’t how people describe these scenarios. Pretty much everything is funny to me lately. However, the current thing that I’m laughing about are the socks that I did in March. Possibly the most knit socks to ever exist. Cookie… Continue reading Struggles and Triumphs
When I started out this month I asked John if I should make some fingerless gloves instead of a pair of socks. He said that I should make the gloves because I’ve made so many socks already. At first I was like, totally, right on. Then I sat down and faced the cold hard facts:… Continue reading Cold hard facts
I love how we all start these resolutions in January, which happens to be a total love/happiness/energy killer. It sneaks up all stealth on people too. Right after the holidays, you have this sense of awesome new beginning with New Years or maybe you’re thinking good riddance- still, there’s all that newness to look forward… Continue reading January, you are such a hater.
You really can’t listen to anything I say. When I say I won’t post in November because I’m writing, well that’s a lie. Because once I announce anything to the World that automagically kills it. My life is amazing like that. I can’t post a book I’m reading on Goodreads or I suddenly become illiterate.… Continue reading Two Cookies, no fat
Before I ran off to join the circus I actually finished some knitting. Lately though, me saying I finished anything sounds like a damn dirty lie. It would probably sound more realistic if I told you I stole these from somebody who was incapacitated, which is what I actually did. Spring Forward in some beautiful… Continue reading cherry poppin socks
So yeah, I probably shouldn’t post pictures since they’re all “half done” and that’s what really ruins the full done effect since it’s like… yeah so? We’ve already seen a million pictures of that torturous lace. But I feel like I’ve been running dry around here lately. Maybe it’s because it’s been a year since… Continue reading Gratuitious Knit Shots
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!
This weekend has been up and down. However, I did manage to finish my FIRST pair of socks. Hoo yeah! SHPLADOW! Actually, knitting socks was weird. I definitely did feel my interest waning during the second sock. Although to be fair that second sock had it out for me. If you look at the socks… Continue reading Go Team Venture!
