DH had cataract surgery this morning, which meant I had a good couple hours in various waiting rooms today. He came through it just fine and so far it seems to have gone really well. And I got a couple inches done on my socks! I tried to get a picture of them in the… Continue reading Waiting
Making progress on my Dockside cardigan! In other WIP news, last week I took the start of a hat in to work as my lunch/boring meeting project. There are some socks ready to go in next, but right now it’s cold and I need a new hat – one with a longer brim that will… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
The Wonder Woman socks are coming along! By the scale I have 43 grams of yarn left, so I’m a bit over halfway. I just did the first leg increase, and have a few more to go. So far they fit really well 🙂 I’m a little bothered by the way the heel messed up… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Well, I had another rare treat this weekend – a yarn dyer trunk show! The dyer is Northern Bee, who used to be in Juneau AK and now lives in Wisconsin. She comes up to AK every year to dye yarn for local shops, and this year she decided to do a trunk show with… Continue reading Trunk Show!
This afternoon DH and I went to a Chinese New Year tea at one of our local tea shops – Indigo Tea Lounge. We went to this same event last year, and it was mostly the same – a huge bunch of delicious food, tasty tea, and some fun treats to take home 🙂 Here… Continue reading Happy Lunar New Year!

Here are her questions: Do you practice self-care? Is it a term… Continue reading Self-Care Quiz

On the fronts the line of the ribbing changing to stockinette forms angles in to the center. There is a similar slant on the sleeves. It’s not a lot… Continue reading Progress on Both Fronts
This weekend I finally got started on a project I have been meaning to do for some time – a spreadsheet of all the projects I would like to make. I have been working on what characteristics I wanted on the spreadsheet and how I wanted it organized, and finally got going on it! I… Continue reading Excelling at Organization
The Wonder Woman socks are moving along pretty nicely now. I did gusset heels, which took a lot of calculation and second guessing, but they worked out all right. It did mess up the stripe pattern somewhat, but that is OK as well. I tried them on after turning the heels, and they fit really… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
