Level of Stress Sign

I ordered some things online from KH on Tuesday since I didn’t make it to the in-person sale last weekend. Just some sock yarn and two balls of Rowan Denim to figure out which color I prefer and whether it’s worth the cost of making a garment for me in it. It normally is delivered […]

Aaaaahhhhhh!

That is my current state. We leave tomorrow and no, not everything is ready. Are we packed? Do the dogs have someone to take care of them? Is my camera battery charged? That’s not even all of it. I. Am. Stressed. I did print out Alison’s ankle sock pattern and ball up a hank of […]

Miscellany

I started this post while I was taking lunch. At my desk. While working. To say today was a stressful, long, irritating day at work would be putting it mildly. Looks like it is going around — I send sympathy to you all! Now I’m home with a drink (otherwise I’m not sure I would […]

Trip Planning

We leave for vacation in less than a week and I am already planning. No, not planning what clothes to take or who will take care of the pets or how much it is all going to cost. Planning what projects to take along. Planning what fibery places to visit. Planning what fibery things to […]

“You Guys Just Like Getting Mail”

Yesterday I received some lovely yarn in the mail from Deneen — we worked a trade out where I sent her a bunch of the now-discontinued LB Cotton-Ease (from when I madly bought tons of it thinking that I would make lots of garments, which I haven’t) and she sent me some 2ply alpaca in […]

Efficient Frogging?

What is the easiest and quickest way to frog back a knit item without having tiny stitches go this way and that and drop and make me exceedingly unhappy? I somehow neglected to notice that I dropped a stitch somewhere back around the gusset on DH’s Opal sock. If it was for me, I would […]

Bookmark Rut

I am participating in the Crochetville Bookmark Swap this period. I have about a month left in which to make bookmarks. I keep crocheting bookmarks to somewhere between 20% and 90% complete, and then I grumble at them and cut them off and refuse to look at them again. I am stressing about the patterns […]

Not Enough Yarn?

At dinner last night I was talking to DH about the sweater and how I made sure to buy extra yarn so there is no way that I will run out. He says, “well, given that what you’ve completed is one ball and about 1/3 of a sleeve, you probably need 6 balls to finish […]

More Progress

Most of this progress was last night. I’ve been cleaning most of today and therefore not knitting. But I did find some time to take a handful of pictures outside (the colors are still not quite right on the socks): [klaralund sleeve one in noro silk garden #203, anklet socks in kfi cashmereno Burgundy + […]

Interweave Compromise

I posted about my credit card account possibly being compromised a couple of weeks ago. I contacted Interweave about it to let them know on the 31st of May. Today/last night they sent out a message notifying everyone who placed a back-issue order (this does NOT affect those who ordered subscriptions) within the timeframe that […]
