You’ll have to pardon the less-than-stellar lighting and angle on the picture, but it’s definite proof that I managed to finally get the January socks done. I stuck in a piece of waste yarn & ripped back the first sock so that I could re-knit the cuff, then did the same k2p2 cuff on the […]

The Skinflint Sock Club

January 27, 2011 by Maire in Hobbies / 2 Comments

Everything is new at the beginning of the year…resolutions, intentions, diets, and yarn & fiber clubs.  In rapid succession, I heard about at least 2 to 4 sock/yarn clubs starting back up, all with different “hooks” to encourage you to sign up ASAP.  My knee-jerk reaction?  “Who the heck can afford THAT?” The husbeast has […]

WIP Wednesday

Looks like I’m slightly back on track for this week!  I’ve been somewhat ultra-organized (yet at the same time, not) for the past week.  I managed to get a podcast up, only to be thwarted by technology (drat you, technology!), and then decided it was time to do a facelift on the site theme.  Still […]

vs Food

January 24, 2011 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

We’ve finally had enough of the procrastination and excuses, and now it’s time to really knuckle own on the food and fitness part of our lifestyle.  We have a previously planned dinner engagement for later this week, but otherwise, we’ll be starting back on our whole-food plan. I did a huge grocery-shop today, and we […]

Listen Here! This podcast was originally recorded on Friday, 21-Jan-11.  Sorry for the delay!  For some reason, the podcast host wouldn’t accept my file until I re-exported it.  Weird… 🙂 Once again, Chelsea has joined me for the podcast! What’s on the needles? Chelsea: – Grrlfriend Market Bag: Sugar & Cream Cotton in Black – […]

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!

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

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 […]
