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...]

New flickr photos!

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...]

Good news!

We must have caught the shingles really early.  There has been no spreading, and I can leave the house!  I have 10 blisters, which are shrinking with the medication that my doctor prescribed!  On Thursday, when I went to the Doctor, he got a culture of the fluid, and the results came back normal.  Isn’t that great?  So, because it looks like shingles, and is acting like shingles (it really hurts), we are treating it like shingles.  I’m just so glad that … [Read more...]

blank title

At some point in time, oh maybe 2 years ago, I decided that I wasn’t sure I wanted to blog anymore.  I was really tired of having a place for people to check up on me, without having to contact me and ask me how things were going.  Mostly, I think it was ex’s that I didn’t want to know about my life, not old friends.  As time as passed, I’ve continued to censor myself and what I talk about.  I tried to only talk about my knitting.  I tried to only … [Read more...]

SP 12 - Question #5

1) Where is your favorite place to go for vacation/holiday? Oh, my…  Ireland, Ireland, Ireland.  I love Ireland.  I would live there if I could.  It’s so peaceful and slow there.  I even tried to find a husband there (before John). 2) Where is one place you’d like to go? I’d like to go to Scotland…  I hear that it is beautiful, and there is great wool there.  … [Read more...]
