I mentioned to Lolly in my reply to her comment that among my reasons for being happy to have finished my mom's sweater was the fact that I'm now free to play around more with the current Project Spectrum colors (of which that dark olive green is certainly not a member). While realistically, I probably… Continue reading new and blue
Oh my goodness, seaming weaving in the ends on this sweater took forever. I got the first sleeve set in and seamed yesterday, but that was it...I had to spend a lot of time fighting with the programming language we program our eyetracking experiments in yesterday at the office, and was too tired by the… Continue reading Mom’s Rogue is DONE!
Yesterday we wound up having to get our car towed to the shop for repairs that wound up costing more money than I actually had in my bank account (a HUGE thank-you to my mother, for giving us a hand with the costs!). Basically, our car is 12 years old and still had quite a… Continue reading even cats love Nancie Wiseman
In the time since my last post, I've come down with what is apparently a "mono-like" virus. So basically, I have been too exhausted to do much of anything. Which means rather little progress has been made on the knitting front (or any other front, for that matter), and when I have made progress, I… Continue reading a bit slowed down
Aw, my title is appropriate for Valentines Day, isn't that sweet? I don't actually really get into Valentines Day, and neither does my husband...we're all about Cheap Chocolate Day tomorrow, though! (I swear, I'm not a total curmudgeon about celebrating things, it's just that I find birthdays, anniversaries, and Solstices/Equinoxes far more exciting than traditional… Continue reading a new love

I got my copy of the Spring Interweave, but on top of that, I got my gorgeous Socks that Rock yarn in the 24 Karat colorway that I picked out for my prize from the Red Scarf Project drawing! First, the Interweave. I'd heard that they changed the… Continue reading I just love getting mail…
Life is still pretty darn good here at our little home. We've gotten more details about my husband's soon-to-be job (he'll have benefits! Hooray!), I've had even more good research meetings, I'm making arrangements to attend a "Linguistics Summer Camp" (the LSA institute) with a bunch of my fellow language-dorks, and my mother has apparently… Continue reading still good
I have had a very happy past couple of days. Why, you ask? Well, for one, I finished the knitting on my mom's sweater, as was noted in my last post, and that was pretty awesome. A couple days before that, I found out that I was a winner in the Red Scarf Project drawing,… Continue reading so much goodness!
Your sleeves are done! I'm a bit sleepy, so this isn't going to be much of a blog post, but I just bound off the sleeves after a little marathon of knitting this evening, and took some (very bad) pictures just to show you: Ren (one of our two orange tabby brothers (the other being… Continue reading look, mom!
