Hello, Sweetie

I finally gave in and started watching Doctor Who a year or two ago. What took me so long? Of course, in the way of geeks everywhere, my new-found affection for all things Whovian crept into other aspects of my life.  I found myself knitting TARDISes in varying shades of blue. I hunted down brass […]

Squareses

After my last post, I ventured into the depths of the dungeon (aka my basement) to see what treasures (I can’t believe I just called acrylic a treasure) might be found to meet my blankie square needs. Imagine my delight to find a box containing a half-finished afghan in just the yarn I needed!  I […]

Whoosh, the Second

It’s been almost a month since my last blog post.  Think that baby blanket’s done? Guess again. In other news, I bought a spiffy new camera.  This is one of the first pics!

Whoosh

“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”  Douglas Adams If you read my last post, you know I had started a baby blanket, which was vexed by catastrophic gauge issues.  I scrapped that mess, since I didn’t want to stitch such angry vibes into a baby gift, and […]

Gauge Issues

Gauge Issues

I should be showing you a snap of a lovely blanket in progress.  However, said blanket has developed catastrophic gauge issues, and has been retired. I’ve started a new blanket with granny squares.  Let’s hear it for the speedy crochet classic. In place of blankets, enjoy a snap of my second felted soap attempt.  Yes, […]
