With All the Frills Upon It

A fast-topic-changing-Good Friday… Finished sweater! Knitting Pure & Simple’s Neckdown Summer Cardigan in Aslan Trends Invernal – an angora, merino, nylon blend. This is my attempt at a vintage-y photo, but… Truth be told, that vintage dress was SO tight, that my patience ran out pretty quickly. I had to model this myself, as Anne […]

The End of the World as We Know It

Welcome to yet another fast-topic-changing Friday. You may be seated. I like REM. Yeah, the band’s alright, but it’s REM sleep that excites me right now… You see, three out of four dogs in this house are experiencing tummy problems.

All Dressed Up

Anne Boleyn (my knitwear stunt-double) normally wears a long-sleeved black tshirt to model knitwear, but today… She’s dressed for spring. This is Soleil, a free pattern from knitty.com. I made this for a knit-along/class at The Knitting Nest later this month. It is knit with N.Y. Cotton, a new yarn from Stacy Charles. I really […]

I’ve been trying to shake things up and keep the posts about […]

Wild Rock n Roll Party

This is my entry. Grand prize – your poem knit into a pair of mittens. (A grand prize only a knitter would love.) Next…! Finished […]

Round Two

I did this Celebrity Look-Alike thing ages ago, and I was inspired to try it again with a new photo. Lucille Ball and Bette Davis ALWAYS show up for me. You can give it a try here. After you sign up (it’s free), you’ll want to click on “Face Recognition”. Please leave a link so […]

The Good Times are Rollin’

Since I was busy drowning in doggie affection on Friday, today we’ll have the first-ever, fast-topic-changing Monday. I have “custody” of all four Basenjis for the next four weeks, and I’m having a blast. And here we go… It’s all dogs, all the time around here right now. The boys have picked up right where […]
