Our prompt image this week featured a kitchen and oven showing off fresh baked goods.  I really have nothing precisely like it, but I do have some more recent photos that show the aftermath of cooking, the cleaning!  Going to a rather not-sepia zone this…

Here are all 15 pairs of socks in their glory.  Even though they're plain vanilla boring stockinette, I think my favorite ones are the red/orange/yellow striped ones.  I bought the yarn as plain, blank white yarn and dyed the stripes myself which was quite a process but it worked out great and I LOVE how brilliant the colors came out.

Fantastic! I'm hoping to knit several pairs this year; I'd knit exactly three pairs prior (and two don't really fit), and I'm already on pair two for this year.

On time this week for Sepia Saturday!  The prompt post featured two French boys, and here I have two Dutch girls.  On the left is Ellechien Dijkema (1912-1974) and on the right is Hilje Dijkema (1914-1997), my husband’s grandmother.  It’s the oldest photo…

With some help from the Jetpack help team, I finally have my Annual Report from Jetpack/Wordpress.  Somehow it didn’t generate automatically, but the admins pushed it through!  2015 was overall a better year, but again not without loss (two cousins on the…

The prompt image for Sepia Saturday this week featured a group of men playing, “Push Ball.”  It’s a game I’ve never heard of before, but taken as a group of men, my image fits in!  Something about the prompt image immediately brought this one to mind, so…

I finally got everything set up and photographed the socks that I’ve knit over the past year.  The tally?  15 pairs!  Some of them are from the end of 2014 since the last time I photographed handknits was September 2014, oops.  Fifteen pairs of socks is…

For this week’s Sepia Saturday, the prompt image was a fairly old family photo.  While mine is probably from about 1924, the family history here is a pretty neat story that I’ve been researching heavily over the past couple of months for my husband’s side…

A year and a half ago, I put in a kickstarter pledge for the Lix Pen. It just arrived today after tons of delays and months without updates. Initial reports seem to indicate a high failure rate, but I haven't yet tried mine to see if it works or not. To be fair to Kickstarter, this is the only campaign I've supported that has had this amount of trouble so far.

My family got a 3Doodler for Christmas and finally gave it a try last night. It's fun, but I'm going to have to do some research to figure out what to do with it other than make decorative objects. As with my pottery and my knitting, I much prefer functional items. Any ideas?
