What a Week

I’ve been crazy busy and apologize for the dearth of posts – bad blogger.  I’ve just finished dealing with a pipe that burst in my office over the weekend… had to have the carpet replaced, lost all of the paperwork, and have just been all around stressed. I have hopes that next week will be […]

Out of Sorts

I’ve come down with both a nasty cold and a nastier case of startitis.  I cast on a pair of socks (my own design) before realizing that the yarn was all wrong.  Frogged.  Then, I cast on a shawl.  I’ve been reading too many blogs about lace shawls lately, and it’s making me itch to […]

Sorry for the dearth of posts – been working on holiday knitting and can’t blog about that in case the recipients see! I recently gave myself a challenge.  I’ve been following the Yarn Harlot’s tales of her self-imposed sock club, and I loved the idea.  However, I know myself too well to believe that I […]
