I'd hoped to have a very exciting post for y'all today. I spent 4 hours yesterday knitting the second sleeve of my husband's sweater, and was excited to be so close to finishing...until he tried it on. And now this is what I have to share: Those balls of yarn are what used to be… Continue reading rip.
We had a quiet Thanksgiving here at casa whitknits; just my husband and I. With my parents out of the country (my dad is teaching in Jamaica over the break), and my brother spending the holiday with his wife's family, and with travel being so expensive in the first place, we decided to keep things… Continue reading Our Thanksgiving Feast
I finished my second Wiggle Mitt this morning, and could not help but take a picture doing jazz-hands, because I am, in fact, a dork: I love them. They're so soft and snuggly and warm, and I haven't taken them off since I put them on, the second after I wove in the last end.… Continue reading Wiggle Mitts!
I'm holed up in the bedroom today, in the dark, with my laptop dimmed, nursing an awful migraine. I can't seem to get any real work done, so I thought I'd update the blog. Hey, remember how I was not going to buy any new yarn for a very long time? Well, I sort of… Continue reading a little something.
My apologies for the blog-silence recently; I've not been getting much knitting done, and have been having a bit of a stressful time of things as far as academic stuff is concerned (trying to get a coherent set of research projects started back up after a year in which nothing moved forward thanks to illness… Continue reading i got nothin’
That's right, I have actual knitting progress to report! I've started the second sleeve on my husband's sweater, and have made it most of the way through the sleeve cap: There it is, laying on our driveway, in the spot where our old Honda Civic (which we finally sold last month!) used to be. If… Continue reading Return of the Knitting
Last night wasn't perfect. For one, Californians seem to have voted to support bigotry, and that breaks my heart. But. We just elected Barack Obama to be our next president! I'm wearing a white shirt today. My family has always had a tradition, after an election, of wearing black if things didn't go our way,… Continue reading Yes We DID!
I'm interrupting the knitting content on this blog (what am I talking about? Has there been serious knitting content lately?) to implore everyone (well, everyone who lives in the US) to please, please, please: You're free to laugh at my sad attempt to render the Obama font/logo in crayon, just so long as you vote!… Continue reading vote!
As you might've noticed, I'm in a bit of a slump these days. I came out of Socktoberfest with not a single new sock to my name (seriously, not even a single one! The sock you see above is from two years ago!). I don't have anything to show off on the knitting front, really,… Continue reading slump.
