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…

I will likely not be around much today, or for the next few. My Nox is gone.

Knitting: I finally got a good chunk of time to sit and work on these Monday during WWE Raw. I’m happy with the pattern, though it takes a bit more of my attention that I’d like. Hopefully I’ll still have plenty of time to get them and the next set done.…

Knitting: What we have here is a clear failure … in many ways. This was going to be a pair of Thelonious socks. Between the insane number of special spots in the pattern, my lack of counting, and my general frustration, over 2 inches was ripped out…

Knitting: I can finally knit again!! I finish up the cowl and the socks are nearly done too! I just have the heels to put in and then I can start on the next pair of stripy socks. I need to have them past the toe increases by Saturday so I can knit at the…

I am twitchy in ways I didn’t think I could be. I can’t knit, play console games, most computer games are out as the mouse and keyboard both are difficult to do, and I can’t fight. To say I’m not handling it well is a severe understatement. On the plus…

Nope, wasn't able to do anything, particularly after I got a better brace that didn't allow my thumb to move. But!! All better now and slowly getting back to everything. :D

My sweet, darling puppy.   I miss you so much.   When I first saw Nox she was pressed to the front of the cage bars looking down at the floor. She was scared of heights and they had her in the top crate. She didn’t cower at the back of the cage, instead…

Knitting: The socks are coming along nicely. I was worried they wouldn’t fit but after a quick try on I think they’ll be fine, even if a smidgen on the tight side. I also think going up a size would be too large. And likely with a wash the yarn will relax…

A new member in the unit means near gear. And the first thing that everybody needs in terms of clothing is a tunic. Parts are fairly easy but not just any shirt will do. I experimented with a slightly heavier fabric plus gussetts under the arms. So far…

//instagram.com/p/BC_59-WrSDv/embed/ I have a more involved brace, more restrictions, but a diagnosis and hope. We saw the specialist on Friday and he said I have De Quervain syndrome. Naturally it’s affected by every single one of my hobbies, but thanks…

I had, and still have quite a bit, of cotton yarn left over after the washcloth blitz of Christmas. So I paired these two colors together to see just how many I could make. I did have a bit of warning to wash them before use as the lighter color attempted…
