I find that the humble sock is a perfect project. It’s small enough to be portable, and it’s not so large as to overheat a knitter in summer. They’re suitable for chatting over a cup of tea, or an evening glass of wine.
I have this weird tendency to fixate on new hobbies. Honestly, it sometimes feels like my life is just a series of obsessions that meander through a wild wood full of experiences and knowledge.
It doesn’t feel like I did a lot this week, but I did find some reading time. I also managed to fit in a little sock knitting. Now if only I didn’t feel so exhausted!
I’ve kinda wrapped WIP Wednesday and the Stringchronicity Podcast into one great big gooey package today. Today, we’re going video! If you’re seeing the W with the bouncing star, you’re on the right track. Give the video a little time to load. Show notes will be forthcoming once I’ve had a few minutes to get […]
Listen Here! I know it’s been about 3 weeks since the last podcast, but I think I mentioned why a while ago in a blog post. Needless to say, we have a new one! I mention that I *did* actually do some recording, even if a podcast wasn’t actually released. I also throw in the […]

The three books I mention were bought at Shelf Life Books, Calgary’s newest Independant Bookseller. Support your independant local businesses! The books: On […]
Listen Here! Hooray, a podcast! Due to the upgrade in computer technologies around here, I tried recording in Garageband in my living room, rather than being stuck in the cold basement on the old PC. I think I could grow to like this… 🙂 On the Needles: February Lady Sweater: Still not seeing any action, […]
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! 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 […]
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 […]
