I've knit quite a bit on the Bog Jacket in the last few days. I knit on it while watching two hours of Doctor Who, followed by the end of the Tour de Suisse on Sunday (I'm gearing up for the Tour de France!), and in the evenings while we watched Countdown all week. I've… Continue reading moment of truth
First off, I never took a picture of the finished sweater without me in it, so here's that: So, the neckline. The pattern (which is knit from the bottom of the front, over the top of the shoulders to the bottom of the back; I don't want to give too many more details out of… Continue reading Syncopated Ribs neckline modifications
Well, the weather did not oblige me, and decided to be stormy today despite my desire to go up to the beach to take pictures of my newest handknit sweater. Oh well.

I'm thoroughly enjoying myself, though I've overdone it a bit with my bluff-climbing antics and am pretty worn out today. It's just hard not to want to be outside… Continue reading enjoying myself
This is making me rather unhappy right now: That's the forecast for my trip up to Winona. My first trip up to my hometown during the non-winter months in years. If it actually does rain and storm every single day I'm up, I'll cry. Please, weather, it is so expensive and difficult for me to… Continue reading in which I complain about the weather
There are no finished pictures of Syncopated Ribs. There are two reasons for this. The first is because, well, I haven't exactly finished it.
