That's my usual view these days, right there. Ren loves to lay in the groove between my legs while I'm working on stuff in bed, which I've been doing a lot of lately, because I've been feeling pretty awful. As soon as I started feeling a bit better this semester, I went crazy trying to… Continue reading taking it easy
Month: November 2007
We got our first real snow yesterday, perfectly timed for Thanksgiving dinner (which was wonderful; it was very nice to spend it with my friends from the department). It has stayed cold, so I woke up this morning to a beautiful layer of snow, and just had to throw on some boots to capture it… Continue reading white thanksgiving
This Thanksgiving, I'm staying home, while my husband spends the holiday with his family in Ohio. Originally I was going to be heading to Ohio, too, but a combination of me not really feeling up to traveling (I've been having lots of flareups of nerve pain, and especially tender spots on my, uh, derrière, which… Continue reading strange thanksgiving
coming to a realization…
Sit down for a moment (er, you're probably already doing that, really, since you're reading a blog and all, but play along with me here!), because I'm about to say something rather shocking: I think the primary reason I'm not knitting more on my soon-to-be sister-in-law's shawl is because I don't like the yarn. Don't… Continue reading coming to a realization…
We got our first snow last night. Just a light dusting, and it's all melted now and I didn't get a picture, but I'm afraid all our late-blooming roses are looking much worse for the wear. At least I took plenty of pictures of them to use as blog-fodder before the weather decided to take… Continue reading first snow
Well, pooey. Got an email from Webs yesterday saying that they were actually out of stock on the super-cheap Montera. I guess lots of other people found it before I managed to! Oh well. I'll still get my Lopi, and it's not like I don't already have plenty of stuff to knit up...for now I… Continue reading oh well
Thing the first: I took that picture yesterday, after we'd had a bit of rain. We have a bunch of roses blooming. Right now, in November. After we've had frost. Is this normal? I'm utterly clueless about roses (and didn't even realize we had many of them, since we just inherited this garden from the… Continue reading sunday sundry
there goes daylight…
I have a feeling I'm going to be primarily posting on weekends for awhile, both because I'm ridiculously busy being a graduate student, and also because (partly due to said busy-ness as a graduate student) there is never any light during the times when I am at home, and since I like to post pictures,… Continue reading there goes daylight…
Tabi Sock is done!
Pattern: Tabi Sock (left foot), from Véronik Avery's new book, "Knitting Classic Style" Yarn: KnitPicks Essential, in Pumpkin Needles: size 2 Clover bamboo dpns On Monday night, I finished the Tabi Sock for my pal. I waited until yesterday morning to take pictures, hoping to get a bit of sunlight, but my plans were ruined… Continue reading Tabi Sock is done!

(Beaverslide for a Tomten Jacket, Cascade 220 for a Seamless Hybrid) So, on Friday morning, before my friend Kris came over to help me make curtains, I got out some yarn and started swatching for a few of the EZ sweaters I have planned. I had originally thought of knitting the Tomten Jacket for NaKniSweMo,… Continue reading One thing leads to another…
