Watermelony

      No Comments on Watermelony

So, I think I’ve mentioned before that I bought a ball of wool from Wish. Since I didn’t really know what else to do with 50g of ‘wool’ (as the label claims it to be), I figured I’d go for a shawlette pattern that I like for this sort of thing. I don’t know what I make of the ‘wool’… Read more »

Outside Again *grumps*

      No Comments on Outside Again *grumps*

Well okay, not a full-on grump. Z proposed that we take the girls down to The Range to see if we could find anything to help keep them occupied on vacation (and the trips to and from). They’ve got water bottles for the car, a set of coloured pencils to share between them, and a couple of little colouring books…. Read more »

Storming the Castle

      No Comments on Storming the Castle

Well okay, not REALLY storming a castle… more like heading to the Post Office at a quick dash, ha ha. I had to keep asking them to slow down and not get too far ahead of me. I’d let them here because it’s a pretty safe stretch of road, and we were on the right side of the road for… Read more »

Under Glass

The girls went to work with Z today, which mainly went well from all I’ve heard. I was bemused when I received a zip file of .pdfs… which contained a picture of each of them having photocopied their own faces. Nerds. They did it separate, so I crammed them together as such to share their nerdery in an easier format…. 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!┬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 »

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 »

Really Not Much

      No Comments on Really Not Much

I think it’s fair to say that the sum total of my productivity today has been filling out some forms for Littler for school, and finishing off a sock. I’ve otherwise been huddling in the conditioned air poking at games. Which, to be fair, that’s fine, it’s Monday. Self-care and relaxation is the true agenda, so yanno… job done. Having… Read more »

Easier, Of Course

      No Comments on Easier, Of Course

For the current pair of socks I am knitting, I finally had to suck it up and learn how to do short rows. I had tried my hand at it previously when I was fiddling with some stuff, but I couldn’t get my head around it. Thankfully, Bill Souza makes really good videos for left-handed people. It was done for… Read more »

Ack, Mah Heart <3

      No Comments on Ack, Mah Heart <3

Today was the Village Fun day, so we popped down for a little bit. The girls rode the teacups, and the go-carts, and then we opted for an ice cream. Smalls had her own, but Littler got to a point where she was trying to feed it to all of us. It was a nice little trip out, outside of… 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 »
