Shortly after I started knitting my Buttoned Wrap Skirt this past weekend, I psyched myself into a random yarn panic. I tend to do this to myself sometimes, especially when the yarn I’m using is no longer obtainable. I like to buy remaindered yarn from the closeout section at Webs, so this does happen to… Continue reading Crazy Coincidence
I was too lazy and disorganized last night to post my WIPs pictures, so I miss out on the alliteration. But in any case, here they are! Side 2 of the Shelly Summer top is under way! I’m hoping to be able to focus on it this weekend and make some progress. And the Black… Continue reading Thursday…ThWIPS?
For those of you who are Shark Week inclined, it is coming up! It starts this coming Sunday 8/9 and goes through the week. Jimmy Beans generally puts out some kind of shark week sock kit, which I always get and sometimes even make 🙂 This year they are doing something a little different.

This is a Rock-Climbing cowl that I am knitting with one of my souvenir skeins from Sin City Knit Shop in Las Vegas. It has been in my desk drawer at work for the last couple weeks as my lunch/boring phone meeting project. I’m kind of jazzed to be using a souvenir skein so soon… Continue reading Yep – Another Cowl
Well, now that we are back again, I can tell you about last week’s trip – to fabulous Las Vegas Nevada! DH’s company sent him and three coworkers to AutoCAD University for the week, and I got to tag along. We just had to cover my flight and meals, making it an irresistible bargain. We… Continue reading Sin City Knit Shop
This evening I binge-watched all four episodes of Digging For Britain Season 1 on Amazon while working on my SIL’s Soft Pretzel socks. I only have 3 more rows of ribbing to do, and also now I know what’s up with British archaeology these days!
