• Yarning Along, Again With the Hook

    When last I left off, I had run out of yarn for my Shetland Trader, Islay. While I sweated it out (literally and figuratively, as the weather has yet to get the message that summer is winding down) waiting for my yarn to arrive from Miss Babs, I decided to do a stash dive, and […]

  • Yarn Along – Until the Yarn Runs Out

    Now that the Ravellenics Games are over, and fall approaches (totally wishful thinking!), I’m back on board with knitting, and I cast on my Miss Babs from the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.  Who cares is 90+ degrees out?  Pshaw!  There’s never a bad time to sit with a pound of wool on your lap, right? […]

  • Maryland Sheep and Wool 2016

    Knitters, High Holy Day of Wool, has once again come and gone.  This year, Knitty D, Momma Bach and I piled in the Beagle Mobile, and headed down to a soggy Howard County Fairgrounds for the 2016 Maryland Sheep and Wool.  Once again, we headed straight for the Miss Babs booth, with our wishlists and […]

  • And the Yarn Goes On

    December through the end of February I knit like a mad woman, faster than the wind. I don’t know if its because I ran out of gas, or because it’s a crazy 70 degrees, or maybe I really want to be crocheting or perhaps needling around with some embroidery, but I’m definitely in a meh […]

  • Yarning Along the Stephen West Way

    I have jumped on the Stephen West bandwagon, and I’m riding high on the #WestKnitsKal2015 knit-a-long, The Doodler! As I mentioned, I watched Stephen’s class on Craftsy while doing the Craftsy binge, and while I’m still raising an eyebrow (or two) at some of his designs, I’m trying to embrace his wild and free aesthetic. […]

  • Yarn Along – Post Traumatic Knit Disorder Cured!

    So, as I mentioned on Monday, I’ve been doing some serious Craftsy binging as a result of a crazy $10/all you can watch month of October.  So much so, that I even started to feel guilty that I was watching too much . . . but then I got an email from Craftsy reminding me […]

  • Yarning Along – One Success and One Big Time Fail

    Hello knitters! Long time no see. But I have been knitting! Pretty diligently too. And, as with all things that rely on the law of averages, I have one success to report, and sadly one fail – one sad, pathetic fail. But, the good news first. Remember that Miss Babs I bought at Maryland Sheep […]

  • Happy Friday!

    In a civil suit, a party can introduce evidence of habit, pattern, practice, etc., to prove conformity – for instance, if the question is whether you did laundry at 2:00 p.m. on July 6, 2014, to prove that you did, you could introduce evidence that every single Sunday you do laundry at 2:00 p.m., so […]

  • Yarn Along – A New Relationship

    As you know from Monday’s post, my knitting and I broke up. I was done done done with that project. And of course, it was all the knitting’s fault. And, without shouldering any of the responsibility for the failure of that relationship, I have moved on to another one –  Meet my new knitting, Antartkis in Wollmeise.  […]

  • Shame on You, Knitting

    So, I haven’t done a video in three weeks, and I took a week off from blogging – because I am pissed off at my knitting. Yeah, you knitting, I’m talking to you – Things just aren’t working out with knitting and I these days. First, I decided to rip out Sesame barf. Totally the yarn’s […]
