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...

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.

Annual Airing of the WIP Pile: February is for Finishing 2015
February is all about finishing here at chez woolly .  I started doing this years and years ago -- in fact, a quick search in the archives would seem to indicate that I first started posting about it in 2006 . You will all be proud and relieved to learn tha...

FO: Denver Cowl
As promised and predicted, I bring you another FO.  I got my Denver Cowl to within a row and the bind-off Sunday night before I decided I was too tired and went to bed.  So last night it was just a wee spot of K1,P1 and a bind-off that was looser than your ...

Everything is Moving Just a Little Too Slowly
We are deep into remodeling and I am more than a little over it.  On the one hand the allure and romance of sleeping in the living room and not knowing where my pants are is starting to fade a bit.  On the other hand, I used a table saw for the first time y...

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. ;)

Beige and Blue...Knitting Ennui Ensues
