SP 12 - Question 13

If you were told you could never again buy yarn, would would your last yarn purchase be? I think it would be Cascade 220.  I really do.  It’s versatile, there are a TON of colors, and it felts so well! If you were told you could never knit again, what would be the last thing you’d knit?? I’d make a felted bag.  I really would.  I’d think about a sweater, but I’m pretty sure it would be a purse. In a given year, how many times do you buy yarn? … [Read more...]

What a wonderful surprise!

I will say, that I am remiss on this.  It happened on Friday, but things are so busy that today is the first day that I had to post…  More on my busy weekend later. I have been spoiling the most wonderful person for Secret Pal 12.  Her name is Sherri, and she blogs at  I’ve been having a great time spoiling her, and I’m pretty sure that she has been enjoying her boxes.  Anyway, I sent her a reveal box last week, with some things I … [Read more...]

Sleep is over rated, right?

There has been a cat burglar hanging around my neighbourhood for a few weeks now.  He comes in at night, through open windows, and takes small things…  Watches, wallets, you know, things that are easily taken.  Every night I go around the house and make sure that all the windows are locked, the doors are locked, and then I try to go to sleep.  I try.  Tonight I was up every hour on the hour.  Some times Sean woke me…  Some times Daisy woke … [Read more...]

Fall Interweave Knits

You know, it’s been a long time since I really wanted to knit something for myself.  I look at the all the knitting magazines every month thinking, “yeah, I’ll never knit that”...  This month is different.  I keep looking at the Sidelines Top thinking, that would look really nice on me.  I like everything about it.  I like the color, I like the neckline, I like the length.  Now, I’ve vowed that I can’t purchase any yarn, but … [Read more...]

Sean is so cute!

Susanna has requested a picture of Sean, which I am pleased to present…  He will be six months old on Friday.  We went shopping on Monday, and he was tired of shopping…  But he refused to give up shopping… I think he is adorable, don’t you? Now, if only I could get my camera to focus where I want it to, rather than where it wants to. … [Read more...]

Back from Prague!

John and I had a wonderful time in Prague.  I hated that it poured one day, but the Sunday we were there, was beautiful, and I really enjoyed the city. There will be pictures soon…  Maybe.  I’ve not been good with the pictures lately, which Zsusanna pointed out to me via Snail-mail.  How bad is it when your blog friend has to send you Snail-mail and ask you to post pictures.  That’s bad. On the way too and from Prague, I tried to start on a poncho for … [Read more...]

Sabercats lose the Arena Bowl

I just wanted to mention that my San Jose Sabercats lost the Arena Bowl on Sunday…  They put up a very good fight, and I am very proud of them.  The last minute of the game was some of the best football I’ve seen in a long time, and honestly, they tried their best.  I know that they will try hard to go to Arena Bowl again next year, and next time, I will be there, with my cow bell, cheering them on. Go Cat’s! … [Read more...]

SP Question Week 7

What is(are) your favorite place(s) to knit? I love to knit in front of the television, especially when reality television is on…  Big Brother, Project Runway, Top Chef, all my favorite shows to knit by.  I also love to knit on the plane.  It’s quiet, and I tend to get a lot of work done. What supplies (besides yarn & needles) make the setting perfect for knitting? Buttons!  I love to have lots of buttons around for inspiration!  One good button can … [Read more...]

lost days

My server went down, and I’ve lost a few days.  I talked about Daisy mostly, who is fine.  I’m getting over spending so much.  There really isn’t any recourse anyway, is there? … [Read more...]
