More on Account Compromise

Looks like my suspicion might be right — someone in the livejournal crochet community posted about someone using the information she used to order a back issue from Interweave Press. Interweave have today off and I will call customer service tomorrow just to give them a heads up. I did send an email to customer […]

Interweave Coincidence?

This is only somewhat fiber-relevant — it might be, it might not be. Back in December, I ordered a year’s subscription to Spin-Off from Interweave. I ordered it online with my credit card and I did what I always do for the contact email address — I used interweave@oneofmydomains. I always do this because then […]

A New LYS?

I got up early this morning because I was excited to head out to a yarn store in Vienna, Uniquities. I read some reviews online of the shop, and I’ve been meaning to make it out there for a while but the opportunity hadn’t come up — until today. It was a bit difficult to […]

A New Sock?

I started a new sock today with some of the yarn I got from Ellen’s 1/2 Pint Farm. I loved the colorway at MDS+W and I had to buy it — yellow and red and orange, you see! But I’m not too keen on how it’s working up right now: I like the side without […]

A Knit FO !

Hooray! They’re done! My first pair of knit socks! Details: I CO 60 stitches, worked in 2×2 rib for about one inch, then switched to plain jane st st. 22 row heel flap. On the second sock I slipped the first stitch of every heel flap row which did make picking up the stitches for […]

Outdoorsy

DH mowed the lawn today, thank you! After I finished cleaning the house, I headed outside to knit for a while while the dogs ran around the backyard. I have one more color stripe before I start the heel flap. This sock is moving very quickly; I may have it done mid-week! This is my […]

Administrivia Apology

I apologize in advance for those of you reading through the livejournal feed (and possibly bloglines as well). I know the LJ feed likes to regenerate the posts whenever I create the static ones, though I’m not sure why. I had to regenerate all of my static posts earlier so if you see hundreds of […]

A Second Knit Sock

I finished the first sock knit with Knit Picks Simple Stripes in Snapdragon. I used a basic sock knitting pattern. I think 60 stitches was too many to cast on for this, but that’s okay. I think the mate to this sock (which I will cast on shortly) will end up looking much better. Last […]

It’s The Weekend Already?

Well, just about. Did you notice that this week I completely forgot about Snowflake Monday? And WiP Wednesday? There are a couple of reasons for that: the day of the week and what day I thought it was did not match until today and I have been focused on twothree specific things this week (spinning […]

Neon Spun

The Lendrum and I are quickly getting acquainted. Today I swapped out a bobbin and decided to try to spin up some of my colonial wool that I dyed with neon food coloring about a month ago. I thought it was going to be a bit painful to spin because it looked like I accidentally […]
