Random Randomness Part V: Picture Version

29th May 2007 | 2 Comments

I drive too much. And for the people who thought “Well at least she wasn’t actually driving while taking this picture”.. This is why my mom always tells me to be careful.  Hey, I had both wrists and a knee on the wheel, calm down.  Also, I do realize how much cooler it would be [...]


No Electric = Knitting

23rd May 2007 | 3 Comments

Due to my own lack of electrical prowess, I blew a circuit Monday night.  All I did was plug in my cell phone to charge, I swear.  After shocking myself and the entire room going dark, however, I decided to plug it in elsewhere.  After going around unplugging things like a crazy person, the breaker still [...]


Random Randomness Part 3

Nick has learned to count.  Sort of.  He doesn’t start with one, but he knows two comes after one.  See exhibit A. Google now has themes for their homepage!  For those who don’t use it, Google allows you to tailor a homepage for yourself.  I have my email, my rss feed reader, a “sticky note” [...]


Socks!

Behold, the power of hand-knit socks. Pattern: Jaywalkers from MagKnits Yarn: Koigu KPPPM Psomethingorother Needles: KnitPicks size 2 circulars For sock knitting, I like the KnitPicks needles much better than the Addi’s.  They are sharp, pointy needles.  (Not to be confused with sharp, pointy teeth. (That rabbit’s dynamite!))

Check out this superb video of Nicholas. I am in Winnie the Pooh hell.  These two stand by the VCR saying “Pooh” over and over until I put the movie in.  On the plus side, it keeps them quiet and not fighting.  On the down side, I now have the entire movie memorized start to [...]


Knitting and Things, Part 2

14th February 2007 | 4 Comments

Here is the completed back of the tank top I am working on.. It looks a little lopsided on the top because the right side is rolled under a bit. Some of you may have read my Mom’s blog where she mentioned her recent lack of self control at the yarn store and bought me [...]


Kicking Off

2nd February 2007 | 1 Comment

After my little setback yesterday, I am determined to move on. To Project Spectrum! That blue is actually more of a periwinkle.  To all who would know, it’s actually very very close to the color of Lizard’s bridesmaids dresses. Something else happened today that reaffirmed that I am, in fact, getting older.  I went to [...]


Clogs!

19th January 2007 | Closed

Hey, I knit something! Two somethings, in fact. Before felting (and in my pajamas).. And after felting.. Yarn is Classic Merino by Patons in Palais (mixes of red, purple, blue and brown) and Royal Purple, pattern by Fiber Trends. They are a wee bit big around but if they did any more felting the length [...]


Happy Birthday to Me!

I am officially 25. Again. And to celebrate, here’s a picture of me taken Christmas Eve when I was only a week old. Yes, I’m still this grumpy. I was also all chub which is definately not the case anymore. In fact, I don’t think I ever added any more weight then I was in [...]


It’s Almost Over!

Only one more post after this one and I’ll finally shut up for awhile! Thank you NaBloPoMo for letting me irratate my friends who use a(n?) rss reader.  I’ll soon go back to my oh so boring ways of only a post or two a week, or less!  Hopefully with a lower frequency the posts [...]
