Why yes, I AM still alive.

I just stopped by to brush a few cobwebs away. Here’s a quick update:

1. I finished the Knucks, although not in time for Rhinebeck. Which was totally okay because it was way too hot for fingerless gloves at Rhinebeck anyway.

I love this colorway.

2. I know some of you (like me) are into this sort of thing (you perverts!), so here is a picture of the inside:

I seriously considered weaving the ends into the knit side so I could wear them with the purl side out.

3. After I finished the Knucks, I cast on for a pair of Felted Clogs. I’ve finished one clog, but seem to have second slipper syndrome and have been spending a lot of time fantasizing about working on something different.

4. Did I mention I went to Rhinebeck? I didn’t buy much, just this:

and a little bit of spinning fiber. Any wonder I am feeling a little bit of second slipper syndrome?

5. NaNoWriMo is looming (heh heh heh). I have no idea what I’m going to write about. No characters, no plot, no nothing. This should be interesting.

How’ve you been?


Because it’s the IN thing.

Even as the knucks obsession winds down, I feel a new one ramping up. Owls. They’re everywhere, and I can’t stop thinking about knitted owl things. Perhaps an owl java jacket? Or a handful bowlful of these? Or this sweater?

totally random sunday

1. I spent Friday night in the ER, thanks to a Starbuck’s barista playing fast and loose with the procedures that keep cow’s milk and soy milk separate. Note to all Starbucks baristas: soy milk and cow’s milk are not interchangeable! And yes, I really can tell the difference.

2. 11 years ago yesterday, my husband and I were married in a small private ceremony at Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada.

Eleven years and I love him more now than I did the day we were married. <3

3. I finished one pair of Knucks and cast on another the very next day:


People, if you haven’t made these yet, don’t let the finishing work put you off! It’s really not that bad. So go. Go now and make some Knucks!

4. Today is 10-10-10. Just sayin’.

5. Last night as I fell asleep, I was trying to come up with an idea for my NaNoWriMo novel this year. I woke up this morning with a great idea involving a bus, temporal displacement, and a sleepy mountain town in Colorado. Now to come up with a large cast of characters.
