Listen Here! On The Needles: February Lady Sweater: On the last couple of rows of the yoke before separating out the armholes and getting into the lace pattern! Noro Shawl: Got a few rows done last week, but as it’s gotten longer to get through, it’s getting a little harder to sit down & concentrate […]

There must be something in the air because it appears I’m not the only one having issues with “involved” projects (honestly, it’s like the woman is looking in my kitchen window, much like my mother used to accuse Lynn Johnston of doing lo those many years ago*).  But wait…what is that? That would happen to […]

W.I.P. Wednesday

W.I.P. Wednesday

January 12, 2011 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

Not much to show for this WIP Wednesday.  I guess that’s what happens when you get tangled up in little Sim lives and dramas instead of watching movies and knitting.  Oops. These are the Glynis socks.  No, they don’t look much farther along than they were, do they?  It’s because I had to rip back […]

Procrastination

I have a confession. See that?  It’s a Sims 3 household.  It was only a matter of time before it happened.  First it starts with needing to update your iPod using iTunes, and then you wind up checking to see if one of your video games will boot…next thing you know, it’s a week later, […]

A Few of my Favourite Things

A Few of my Favourite Things

January 6, 2011 by Maire in Writing / 2 Comments

The Daily Post wanted to know what makes me smile, and wouldn’t you know it, but a lot of things make me smile.  This lovely mosaic is by no means complete; there are a lot more people, places and things out there that I haven’t managed to take a decent picture of yet! Which, of […]

WIP Wednesday!

I’ve actually gotten a bit done on all my projects this week.  Even the sweater, though I haven’t been able to snag any photos of it.  I’ve finished the increase rows on the February Lady Sweater yoke and am now completing the last couple of garter stitch rows.  Then it’s on to the body and […]

Accomplishments

Time for another hard-hitting Daily Post question! What’s the single most important thing you accomplished in 2010? Well, I didn’t accomplish much that was too difficult.  Really.  I didn’t solve world peace, or end starvation. I didn’t write a best-selling novel, and I didn’t enlarge the family or find the cure for cancer.  I knit […]

Who Deserves More Credit?

January 3, 2011 by Maire in Writing / 0 Comments

Today’s choice from the ongoing stockpile of Daily Post questions is: Name someone who deserves more credit than they get. And for bonus points, how to change things so they get more.  Of course, we’re not constrained to just the literal question, but can think outside the box if we wish. What occurs to me […]

Three Countries

I have to admit that the Daily Post project looks a little like every other topic prompter so far.  No hard-hitting questions.  Luckily, I’ve let a couple of days’ worth of topics stockpile while I’ve been doing things like my own yearly recap and podcast.  I’m thinking I may continue to allow the stockpile to […]

Stringchronicity Episode 13: Happy New Year!

January 1, 2011 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

Listen Here! Happy New Year!  Hope yours went well!  I’m still a little scattered-sounding, but at least I’m back to podcasting on a weekend instead of catch-as-catch-can during the week. I talk about how busy the Christmas season was, particularly regarding the amount of households we visited.  I also mention that swag was exchanged amongst […]
