Better than expected

I am beaming with pride this morning. Last night, I sat down and finished my first baby bib, and it came out better than I ever expected. I still need to wash and block the bib, but I wanted to get a picture of it just in case disaster strikes.

I'm not sure who is getting this bib. My DH looked at the bib,… Continue

I can knit more than scarves!

I have mixed feelings about my last post. On one hand, I finally got pictures on my page. On the other hand, I only had scarves to show. (Okay, there was one hat.) One poster commented that the pictures were cute, but I think I got a pity post. Certainly, I have knit more than just scarves (and one hat) since the summer.

I devised a plan. I would finish a bunch of UFOs this week and post them. That would certainly prove (mostly to myself) that I can knit more than just… Continue

Ready, Set, zzzzzzz

That pretty much describes my week. I wanted to knit. I wanted to blog. Both require that I stay awake past 8:30 pm, however. I'm normally a night owl, but, with my DH being sick this week, I have been up before 7 am and crashing at, well, 8:30.

My DH did take a few minutes last night to show me how to upload pictures. I'm going to try to put them in the blog. Wish me luck.

Yes! It worked!

These are my first few… Continue

When Ignorance = Accomplishment

My mother likes to tell a story from my high school years. I had broken my leg at summer camp and was in a cast from my toes to my mid-thigh. That fall, I had been asked to lead a prayer at synagogue. The day of the service, I limped my way down the aisle on my crutches, climbed the stairs at the front of the sanctuary, and read the prayer. When I was done, I made my way back to my seat. To me, this was not a big deal. Yet, when my mother tells this story, she always remarks how the cast on my… Continue

So many projects, so little time

I have way too many options - too many projects that I want to do and no idea how to prioritize them.

I've had this idea about doing washcloths for the holidays next year. My initial plan was to knit a bunch of washcloths and hand them out with homemade soaps to my children's teachers. I got this idea when my mother gave me a bunch of old cotton yarn that she had intended to use for a sweater but then abandoned the idea. While the yarn pre-dates the organic trend, its color is… Continue

The Obsession Continues

It's amazing how knitting can take over your life. I've noticed that I have knitting projects scattered throughout my house, a project in my purse, and one in my car. I spend my evenings looking at knitting websites. Knitting books now populate my book shelf upstairs and the end table in the family room downstairs, and I continue to order more knitting books on-line. Housework - who needs housework? It merely takes time away from knitting.

Knitting is taking over my social life as… Continue

Wow! I have a blog!

Wow! I have a blog. I've wondered for a while about doing a blog. Would anyone actually read what I wrote? Could I entertain and inspire? Well, here goes.

I need to upload a picture of my Sweater Sampler from Jacqueline Fee's Sweater Workshop. I'm so impressed with myself that I've gotten this far. For those who have done the sampler, I'm up to the lace edging. (And thank you Kelley for inspiring me to start this project with your podcast.) I must admit that I'm a little… Continue
