With an Inch to Spare

      No Comments on With an Inch to Spare

I have just spent the last (feels like) forever getting the shawl casted off, but it’s done now! I suspect that the last few inches are a bit tighter in cast off tension if only for the fact that I realised I was almost out of wool. I’m not completely sure how I managed to pull it off, but there… Read more »

I have spent all evening processing the wool I came home with yesterday. And by processing, I mean entering everything into a spreadsheet, because I’m that big of a nerd. But now I know exactly what there is with only one or two question marks, and there’s a lot of goodness in there. there’s also some degree of faffy wools… Read more »

I Have to Give the Bag Back

      No Comments on I Have to Give the Bag Back

One of our newer Stitch ‘n Bitch members, K, was getting rid of some of her wool today. Apparently, this required a Royal Mail bag full, and then a bit more. I made some weak-ass excuses and shoved it into my car. What’s more, everyone who was there when the wool was still in the pub seemed to keep mum… Read more »

I survived today, so have a picture of Smallhausen’s new reading timer. It was a pretty good day all told, never mind I woke up in a lot of pain from sleeping in the wrong bed and getting my head all janked around. I woke up having a big pile of things that needed to go through the wash because… Read more »

It’s the Least Wonderful Time of the Year

      No Comments on It’s the Least Wonderful Time of the Year

At the end of last week, we had the worst, but most expected text message of any new school year — someone in the class has head lice. Fuck. So of course, that means checking the girls. And, of course, both seem to have a few bits of grodity. Sigh. I’m sort of relieved though, because seeing something means I… Read more »

A Lovely Day

Today we had the Fs around, now with less accidental drama. *chuckles* The kids played together well, and the closest thing to an incident is that Littlerbit apparently turned on the outside tap. We figured it out fairly quickly though, and before they could flood the yard or drown themselves. We were also watching the Tottenham versus Manchester City match,… Read more »

I am sitting here with my milk and the Oreos and like… they’re all going in my face, not gonna lie or apologise. They’re Oreos, and they’re mint, which means this is a date with destiny! I’ve been meaning to bust them out since we bought them… last week? Week before? Some unreasonable amount of time to neglect poor Oreos,… Read more »

Moving On

As of today, I can declare my green top completed. The knitting is done, the sewing in is done; the only task remaining is to sew in one of my made by me labels. I’ve got it tucked up on my desk to do tomorrow ’cause I cannot be bothered today. Instead, I’m working on trying to finish off my… Read more »

Pins & Needles

      No Comments on Pins & Needles

This is a quick one on the top of a successful inaugural session of a new knitting group; C and T have named it ‘Pins & Needles’, which is as apt as Stitch ‘n Bitch is. It was a new location with a few new faces, but mainly it was the same old crew in a new location, but now… Read more »

My brain is an exhausted wreck right now. I found out earlier that a dear friend was hospitalised, and the sources of information on it were really sketchy and made me believe that it had not been of her own choice. I wasn’t the only one; a lot of her community is online and none of us had gotten it… Read more »
