February is Finished and Olympic Pride
From a strict "February is for Finishing" standpoint, I didn't do so well.  The Oregon Socks are the only things I finished that had been on the needles prior to February.   Ah well, I knew that my finishing would be sparse when I decided to cast on socks f...

Woot!
 
New Jersey's highest court has ruled that same-sex marriages must begin in the state right away, unanimously upholding a lower court's ruling:

"The state has advanced a number of arguments, but none of them overcome this reality: Same-sex couples who cannot marry are not treated equally under the law today," the court ruled. "The harm to them is real, not abstract or speculative."

And NJ makes 14. Oh happy day!

Knitting is Definitely Happening
As I mentioned before, I'm not following my normal "thou shalt not cast on in February" rules.  I really wanted to get in on knitting rainbows during the Olympic Games, so I decided to go for it.  It's my dumb arbitrary rule, and I can break it if I want to...

I have applesauce in my crock pot being turned into apple butter as we speak, Iris and I worked on her jacket, and Bitty had an awesome pajama day full of mischief. Today was a good day.

This is an excellent blog about being a housewyf (or homemaker to those not in the know) in the Modern Era.

If you aren't already reading it, and you live in a house, or if you know people who live in houses, you should re-examine your life choices.

Awww! I'm honored! It's also about picking up the mentality of the Greatest Generation about reusing, repairing, and living with less as they did during WWII.

For those of you disconcerted by the new layout, you can go back to one stream.  Still looks a little weird, but should be easier to keep chronological, if you're into that.

And this would be one of the reasons why I <3 Google and can't stand facebook.  Google: We think this will be better, but if you really don't like it, you can change it back. ;)
