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 [...]

2009: Planning

I recently upgraded WordPress on this blog and decided a makeover was in order. It took several tries (I hoped to find a magazine style layout that worked to my liking, but no luck), and I really like the new look. Fresh and simple at the same time. I hope you all like it too. [...]

A new take on the old

Way back in April, I was skimming threads in the Ravelry group, Sock Knitters Anonymous, when I saw a post announcing a sock design contest by Lorna’s Laces.

After reading the rules, I remembered I had some leftover Shepherd Sock from the Slytherin socks. It seemed like a perfect project to work on during the forthcoming [...]

Spiralling Surprise

I haven’t been a good blogger/commentator lately; I really appreciate all your comments on my recent posts. I haven’t had time to write up any posts for a while because Grandma was here visiting. Less computer time also means more knitting!

Quick Ravelry aside: Casey has just added an “image slurper” which is being tested [...]

Boring Post Today

I’ve been so busy lately that I barely had a few minutes to spend on the computer. My blog-reading and emails were completely neglected last week because said moments went to Ravelry. But I’m off work this week so I have lots of time to catch up on things.

Yesterday I scrolled through a gazillion blog [...]
