I wanted to post a quick update that Insidious is now available as a free download via Ravelry (click here if you’re not a Ravelry member)!

Best wishes for a happy 2010! :)

…Hello Illinois!

(Very belatedly!) Nicole guessed correctly right off the bat after my last post. I’ve moved to UIUC to work on my MLIS (Master in Library and Information Science). I’ve been so frustrated with job hunting and trying to figure out what to do for the rest of my life. The answer finally came to me via [...]

Goodbye Minnesota…

Yep, I’m moving! Some of you know where, others will find out in the next blog post. I wasn’t sure we could get everything to fit in the van, but we did. Believe it or not, I am only taking two boxes of yarn with me. See that pink box on the left in the [...]

I haven’t fallen off the blog

Just am incredibly busy with other stuff. Exciting stuff. Non-knitting stuff!

By the way, a little heads up to those who have me friended on Ravelry–I am almost nearly done entering my stash and will be uploading many yarn photos and rearranging favorites and queued items this coming week. I’m sending preemptive apologies, as this will [...]

Lately, I’ve felt like a snail… I concentrate on something for what seems like a couple hours, only to find out nearly a whole day has passed by. Since Starbucks has pretty much discontinued decaf Frappucinos, I’ve been thinking that I [...]

Chunkster/TBR Update

Here’s another local event to add to all the upcoming spring events: the local Yarn Shop Hop is back, this time as “Summer Knitting (and Crochet) on the Go.” Since I went last time, I’ll probably skip this one. But it’s a great opportunity to see shops that you might not usually visit or haven’t [...]

We can haz TimTams!

Pepperidge Farm has made available the ubitiquous Australian cookies for us here in the US. Yum! According to the website, they’re only available “for a limited time at Target.” Such wording makes me want to build up an emergency stash in my freezer.

Many appreciative thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments about my Bohus socks (last post)! I have been putting off blogging about another FO, because the project itself is… meh. I’m tempted to skip over it and blog about a nice lace scarf I just finished. We’ll see what I decide to do on Friday! [...]
