Hoodie Liposuction
Hey, a post that's finally informational and useful and also not a recipe! I live in hoodies. I regularly wear four and I want more. One of these hoodies is almost perfect, except for one fatal flaw--it doesn't fit quite right. Lots of people like their clo...

Stitch 'N Bitch: A Knitter's Design Journal, or a book that will ruin my haphazard knitting habits.
My not-mom bought me this: Because she knows me too well. She sees me at her Stitch 'N Bitch meetings with little scraps of paper on them. She's seen me unravel a sweater for the 1396920th time because I'm too lazy to check my gauge. I have a lot of commiss...

Coconut squash soup and Captain Clumsypants
Some days I'm more clumsy than others. Today is a more than day. I wanted soup. This website has some fantastic recipes and I went with the coconut squash soup. And of course my kitchen looks like this. Our dishwasher is broken. I chopped up about a third o...

Hulk screaming at spinning wheels.
Remember how my spinning turned out so nicely last night? Yeah. I spun another thing of yarn, and all was well except for the unevenness that goes with all of my attempts to spin thick yarn.  But then parts of my wheel kept falling apart and my strands of y...

And instead of sleeping because I have work, I'm spinning more yarn.
I know I just finished my mom's alpaca, but I've been dying to spin the roving I bought. In order to start that, I have to finish the Corriedale I have left over from my sweater (that still needs bigger buttons sewn on, whoops). Which is fine, because it's ...

Dyeing with Kool-Aid: maybe this stuff shouldn't be ingested...
I don't have anything pressing to work on right now (yes I do, but I can't actually work on it right now. Shh, it's a secret.) so I'm going to dye some wool for my not-mother. You know, the one who quilts and whose blog is linked on the left side. I'm shari...

Old fashioned candy with a hint of angsty teenager music.
I'm really cheap. Really cheap. I'm 20 and I coupon. I only shop clearance. I make most of my Christmas presents. But I also like to have my Christmas presents be good quality. If your present's gonna be food, I'm not baking you chocolate chip cookies. I'm ...

One down, ten thousand to go...
One of the nice things about not being friends with your sister on Facebook is that you can post pictures of her finished Christmas present without her seeing it. Here, have a super unflattering picture of me in a beret. Pattern here .
