Playing with yarn…

nyx-playingI’m sure this is one of those topics that fiber bloggers have written about multiple times… Heck, I may have even blogged about it before. I’d have to go look.

But – hey, why not once more?

What is the draw of fiber artists to cats? Its not like they make fiber life easy. Heck, sometimes they can make it darn near impossible – so much so that I know I have put my yarn away due to cat. Read the rest of this entry »

WIP Wednesday… what?!?

I seem to be on a bit of a roll with posting regularly but I definitely do not want to jinx it. *laughs*

So for me – just giving a brief update on my current projects. Read the rest of this entry »

Artemis – enjoying the open window.

Nothing is more demotivational to a knitter than the A/C going out when it feels like 95’F outside. I had planned to pick up DC’s sweater and knock off the last sleeve and maybe, just maybe, get it joined together. Read the rest of this entry »

Where do I rank?

2014-12-01_stockings_mediumSeptember 25 – that puts us roughly 90 days until Christmas… and I am no where near even starting Christmas presents. Yowzers.

Tricotage Heureux

shawlI do not know of one blogger that could not be inspired by the movie “Julie & Julia” – and it was on tonight. I locked in the moment it started and connected with the blogger – the struggles of updating regularly, having some ‘meat’ for the reader – not even knowing if people are reading. A blog really is a self-centered thing to do because you really do end up talking to yourself (for the most part). Read the rest of this entry »
