Yarn Chicken

I’m playing yarn chicken.  Again.  It makes me feel alive, the rush when you don’t know if you’ll make it and you end up knitting with the tail of your cast-on for the last row.  I knit faster when I play this game, I think it’s because I’m desperate to see if I’ll win.  I... Continue Reading →


I made a patch!  Much to my surprise it came out GREAT!  Much to my dismay the sweater I was planning on sewing it on probably won't fit me, too small.

The “Finish Something” Punch Card

I need to finish something.  Anything.  I can’t walk in my bedroom anymore, the WIPs are taking over.  I’m starting to feel like a hoarder.  And I ordered more yarn with a gift card.  I don’t know where to put that either.  I’ll worry about it when it comes.

I ordered 4 skeins of Knit Picks Stroll... Continue Reading →

I’m not a sock person
