Today, we finally got a chore done that should have gotten done a looong time ago — we got rid of the chairs that came with the house that we kept as a joke. Z and I got them taken outside and loaded up, and he took them to the tip. He also took Smalls with him, and they picked… Read more »

Shoes Off, Showing Off

      No Comments on Shoes Off, Showing Off

When it’s a knitting night, I like to wear socks I’ve made to show off. It’s in part to show off to my fellow crafters; I like showing off, but I love seeing their projects too! But also, as a point of inspiration for any rubberneckers who happen go past us. Seeing people sitting and knitting in public elicits one of… Read more »

The Face of Pain

      No Comments on The Face of Pain

I am really stumped as to why, but I have been in a looooot of pain today. My back eventually  unkinked some, but the rest was just… ugh. Some of it felt like baby fibro, and others just… general unwellness, I guess. There was a bonus dose of feeling queasy AF for no real good reason, so I’m definitely ready… Read more »

A Time For…

      No Comments on A Time For…

Today has been a most excellent day. I got some degree of work-work done in the half-day that I/we did. Half day, because it’s our anniversary, and we went out to have a nice lunch. I continue to be glad to be married to Z, and cannot think of anyone who could possibly have been a better match for me…. Read more »

No, it’s not my magic wand, though I guess if I DID have one, it would be a knitting needle. No, this is a tacit reminder of why I almost never use straight needles anymore — one can get lost. One HAS gotten lost, and while I have another pair in this size, I’m super annoyed to have one of… Read more »

Inside

This photo is 500% me being a smart-ass. It is, of course, the inside of my phone case, one of my most photographed objects. This one happened to snap while I was getting my phone flipped to take a picture of me and the visiting friend. We had a lovely lunch, and a lovely visit. He ended up staying to… Read more »

Across the Universe

      No Comments on Across the Universe

We are currently holed up at R’s house for belated 4th of July-ish celebrations. We are also kid-free, which is bliss. The kiddos are with their grandparents, which hopefully will go as smoothly as it did last time. So that’s nice. We all love each other, but I think that we all appreciate having opportunities to do something different/be somewhere… Read more »

Making Progress

      No Comments on Making Progress

I have made some minor progress on getting earrings listed and organised. Which is to say, the easy ones are mainly done. The main problem now is trying to figure out how I am going to do the listings. With the shell bead ones, there are three different styles, and lots of different potential colours, so it’s trying to figure… Read more »

Photograph-ary

I am grudgingly starting to get the earrings I’ve made listed. This has requires me to attempt to find ways to get the earrings  positioned for best photographing, hence the little yellow triangles. It seems to be helping a bit, though I had to make a little one a bit flatter to get… well. Angles. Things. Fancy, ha ha. I… Read more »

Such a Heel

      No Comments on Such a Heel

I turned the heel on the sock yesterday and started down the body of the foot. It generally goes pretty quickly from this point, so yay for that. I’m mildly annoyed because I don’t know what my project is going to be. Well. I’m going to do a cat hat or two to donate for our charity event in September,… Read more »
