A Treatise in Defense of Project Polyamory
So last Sunday I said something about trying to be "good" and not cast on anything new. And while I realize I am very far from the first to raise this important question (The Yarn Harlot herself has been blogging about it for over a decade), I'd still like ...

I wasn't terribly clear: I was meaning to encourage you to find the right balance for you! :) have fun, and I hope you find your happy place. Life's too short to be ascetic about one's knitting.

One of These Things is Not Like the Others
Jess' particular brand of March Madness seems to be catching.  I've really tried to be "good"* and work on projects that I already have on the needles, but I'm booooooored with all of that nonsense.  That stuff is SO LAST FEBRUARY. Last night I was casting ...

Heeding the Call
I don't talk about my religious life on the blog very often.  I've mentioned it off and on throughout the years, but generally I keep the talk to knitting. Sometimes, though, ( and this has happened before ), my religious life and my fiber-arts smack straig...

Longing for Spring
I am so incredibly over winter I cannot even.  It was in the 60s today (that's Fahrenheit, hashtag; strugglingwiththemetricrevolution hashtag: temperatureishard), and there is snow and ice on my back deck.  Mother Nature is on a beach somewhere sipping adul...

There still is a remnant of the giant snowball (it was almost as tall as me ;D) in our front lawn that my boys made from our snowfall! ;D

The Icepocalypse Wasn't as Good for My Production as You Might Think
We had a spot of weather here in Middle Tennessee this past week.  If by "spot of weather" you mean "state of emergency, schools closed for a week, no bread to be found in the entire state, and thank G-d I have a laptop so I can work from home"... and I do....

Yup, the Boy has been out for a week now. At least they told us early rather than waiting until 6:30am when half the little ones are waiting in the cold for the bus.

Pink is the Color of Spring
Spring is springing out all over the place here in Middle Tennessee.  It's in the upper 70s (still Fahrenheit) and last week's snow and ice is forgotten and forgiven.  Everything is beautiful and nothing hurts. It's so pretty outside I voluntarily did yard ...

How Did She Do? February is For Finishing 2015 Round-up
So, I finished three of my twelve projects   Which, on the outset, does not seem all that inspiring.   But I beg, before you pass judgment on my industry or its lack, consider these factors: The three objects I finished were each barely started at the begin...

You are a tricksy Hobbit. As long as Maurice doesn't get ideas for higher learning, then you can probably steal back when they go to college. ;)

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single hat in possession of a good cable, but lacking suitable decreases, must be in want of finishing. Or put another way, it's funny how fast things finish up when you pick them up and knit them, idnit? This ...
