So, I'm a bit late to the posting. I've been knitting on my slinky rib sweater, but haven't taken a good progress shot. In the meantime a few weeks ago, I decided on the spur of the moment to go down to the Hudson Valley Fiber Farm Shearing Day. An hour and a half ride … Continue reading Fiber Festivals
So, a while ago I found out that a friend of mine at work was expecting her second child. They were going to wait to find out whether the baby was a boy or girl - making it a surprise. I'd wanted to do an Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket for a while, but hadn't … Continue reading A baby surprise – jacket

So I finally had a really good weekend. Unfortunately it did not really include knitting. E & I got to spend some fun time together rather than just driving and arguing. We made her valentines for class and yesterday we skied. I wish I had pictures. It was a lot of fun to have a … Continue reading Great Weekend
Okay, 3 days later than I said it would be, but I didn't miss the deadline (I hope). No pictures today, but I did finish the first of E's new socks, and she picked out some new yarn for me to make matching socks for the two of us. So I'm not short of things … Continue reading It’s in the mail!
Okay, so I guess it's not always about knitting. I'd been seeing the beaded stitch markers all over the web, and had definitely been coveting them. Well, during a routine web search I found this page. It was especially serendipitous, as I'd been at Wal-Mart earlier and had been thinking the clasp rings would make … Continue reading Stitch Markers!
