Knitting: Well, I came to the end of my first sock yarn sooner than I thought. Of course I also had 2 four hour shifts at the event this past weekend so plenty of time to work on them while waiting for people to sign in. I knew this was a long term…

It’s been … a long while. Losing Kaela so soon after Nox, and then the wedding, attempting to cope with overwhelming depression (despite being happy about the wedding), and not handling feeling cut off from all the social sites with the lack of laptop, it…

Knitting: These are making progress thanks to a couple movie nights. Though I’m now at the point where I’ll have to start considering the heel, I think it might be after this next color. Then I’ll just knit away until I only have enough left for the…

Knitting: These are slowly growing. I keep checking my measurements and counting my rows .. and making lots of notes on my pdf so I can easily do the next one.I just go to the heel increases so I suspect this one will be done before long and I can start…

Knitting: Finally! I’m making the tiny socks that will just barely cover my feet to wear at the wedding. I want a little bit of cushioning in the heels and I want something made by me. Plus they’re a gorgeous blue. Wedding: His ring is in hand and the…

Knitting: I’ve pushed a bit and finished up the first sock and I’m done with the heel turn on the second. I know this part goes fairly quickly, I just have to pace myself a little since my wrist is still twingy at times. But, it’s good progress and I’m…

Knitting: The smocked sweater is coming along super fast I’m already done with the body and I’m about half done with the front half. I really love how adorable it looks and it’s so incredibly soft. The 10 stitch blanket is also making progress. It’s still…

Been absent from blogging for a while due to lack of computer, wedding prep, packing for honeymoon, the week long honeymoon, plus tendonitis.

Some have asked where we're registered for the wedding (only 18 days left!). We're not registered as we just don't have room for stuff. We are however asking for help with the wedding costs. Here's a link if you're so inclined.


My fiance, Shadow, and I are getting married next year. We encourage anyone interested in helping us out to ignore any registry lists or the like and to consider this the best method for providing wedding gifts. We deeply .appreciate any and all help anyone can give. Kane Martin.

Lack of computer + honeymoon planning + honeymoon week + wedding prep = no time for Shadow to blog. Also the tendonitis means that I haven’t been able to knit for 2 months. Some have asked where we’re registered and we’re really not. Approximately 300sf…

This lovely alpaca was begging to be close to me. And oddly enough, I didn’t have any black hats. I love how super stretchy the fabric is. And I love the delicate lace and cables mixed together.

I suspect I’ll end up wearing a lot more of my knitting later this year, when it gets cool again. I had a bit of cascade left over from some project or another. This pattern is wonderful with cascade, the cables pop so nicely. Eventually I’ll have hats in…

78 days to the wedding and life kinda hit us in the stomach, hard. Our only car was totaled when a girl pulled out in front of Jon and there was no way he could stop fast enough. We’ll likely get nothing from it as we still owed a bit on it. Meanwhile, we…
