The Seattle Plan

Among the things that PokingMyEyesOut E and I have in common is our need to plan and make lists. Since I am subjecting her (and her DH) to me for a few days, it is only proper and polite to also have a plan. With lists! Many lists. Among the lists I have written we […]

The Curse of the Never-ending Yoke

About a week and a half ago, while I was working on the super secret project with E of Poking My Eyes Out, I decided I was going to start a short-sleeved ribbed raglan top with some cotton blend stash yarn. Why would I do such a thing? I was bored with the secret project […]

Crafting Time?

Apparently I was delusional when I thought that I would have plenty of time this weekend to knit, crochet, and spin. I thought I would be able to sit around and watch the Olympics (I am not a Crochet or Knitting Olympian, but I am enjoying watching everyone else’s Olympic progress!) and enjoy the 10″ […]
