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!┬áBut 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 »

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 »

Again and Again

      No Comments on Again and Again

I’ve finished the knitting of the hat, but I keep cacking up the sewing slightly. It’s not the end of the world because it’s not like it takes that long, but it’s still annoying. It also doesn’t help that I ‘have’ to do it top to bottom to get it to line up right and make the top look properly… Read more »

YAAAASSSSSSS

We have no kids! WE ARE FREE ELVES! For tonight, at least. Yes, tonight is the big night when both girls finally get to spend the night together at their grandparent’s house. It’s been almost four years in the making, but it’s finally going down. Hopefully. We’ve talked to Z’s mom and we’ve talked to the girls, and everyone knows… Read more »

Nothing Much

      No Comments on Nothing Much

Today has been a day of doing very little, but doing it well. Both girls were home with me, and were awesome at entertaining both themselves as individuals, but also as a pair. I think that we’re all going to make it through this half-term, seeing how there’s only two more day-days before the weekend and return to ‘normal’ operations…. Read more »

Camera Hogs

      No Comments on Camera Hogs

I was trying to take a selfie to use for tonight here, when my favourite little camera hog wandered over. We took a couple of amusing photos, but I liked this one the best for no particular reason. Jeze is on her way back home now, le boo. It was fantastic having her to visit, and we are thrilled there… Read more »

Always Shifting

      No Comments on Always Shifting

Today brought another wave of trying to tame my desk environs. Of course, kiddos decided they had to keep getting in my way in spite of me repeatedly asking them to not invade the like, 2 square feet I needed them to stay out of. My anxiety is still a bit elevated from that, which is super annoying. But at… Read more »

Grandad Conehands

      No Comments on Grandad Conehands

We, the six of us, went out for a family meal this evening. The girls were well-behaved (as always), and Granddad solicitously offered to help them eat their desserts. So they both gave him their cones, and focused on their ice cream. I don’t know know if he was amused that they took him at his word… I know I… Read more »

Setting In

      No Comments on Setting In

Today’s knitting is… sewing. And then more sewing. I got halfway around on the first sleeve and had to rip it out because it looked horrible. And it looked horrible because I always think that I remember how to set in sleeves without checking (hint: I really don’t xD). I’m making pretty good headway on the second sleeve, so hopefully… Read more »

Round and Round

      No Comments on Round and Round

I managed to slog through the pain in the ass of picking up stitches last night. I’m probably only another row or two off of doing the amount I need before I can cast off and move on to other things, so that’s hooray. I don’t know if I am going to get stuck into the shoulder seams today, but… Read more »
