…it’s Wednesday, isn’t it. You know, I had pics for last Wed and never got around to posting. Apparently I have a very busy life of sitting on my ass and knitting and drinking heavily. A couple weeks ago I posted some BEAUTIFUL yarn that I got from deknits (Ravelry link) in a swap for [...]

Take 2!

April 8, 2008

Wow. The Yarn Harlot made it to Charlotte finally. And I would like to say that it was as much fun as the one in Atlanta in September, but it would be a lie – it was better. Really just because the trip back was a 20 minute and uneventful drive which didn’t include being [...]

April 6, 2008

I am watching something on the Science Channel about the power of laughter. I think we all need to laugh a little more in this world. As a society we are entirely too serious these days. I am as guilty of this as anyone. That isn’t the point of this post though. CLOWNS FREAK ME [...]

Not too much…

March 26, 2008

I haven’t been knitting much of late. Sad, I know. Between work and life, I just haven’t had the time or energy that I usually do. I mean I knit nothing yesterday at all. And I was in bed before 10 pm. Last week I mentioned I CO a couple of things. Bob’s Party Sock [...]
