Goodnight, Irene

Published by under Blather

Hi there, internet. I’m posting which means I do, in fact, have power — unlike most of Long Island. Something like half of the households are still out following this weekend’s hurricane, so I’m feeling pretty fortunate. We had a lot of wind and rain, but now that the storm has passed it’s peaceful and […]

Raining, Pouring

Published by under Blather,wips

It has been a very wet week. I spent it catsitting for friends in Queens, which meant a delightfully shortened commute, but now I am home again and catching up on everything. I did some knitting this week, but it’s secret, so all I can show you is this: 3 down, 7 to go. Soon. […]

Shawls for Smiles

Published by under Blather,FOs

So you might remember a few posts back I talked about spending the day with my friend Vhary. We went to St John the Divine and had lunch and went yarn shopping, and Vhary asked me if I would knit her something if she got herself some yarn. Well, why not? Especially when Vhary has […]

Take Me Out

Traveling Sock celebrated Father’s Day by going to the ballpark. It was a beautiful day for a game. Especially when the home team won 6-0. Sorry, Camden. The Long Island Ducks are my favorite baseball team, because they are a semi-pro team that play in a reasonably-sized stadium where you can see what’s happening on […]

The Return of the Traveling Sock

Published by under Blather,Traveling Sock,wips

Traveling Sock took a little trip today. My friend Vhary has been in town this week (in advance of a move out to San Francisco for grad school) and we met up today in the city and wandered around the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, as I had never been there before and Vhary […]

Multi-craftual

I’m working on a bunch of gift knitting at the moment, but I needed a bit of a break. So I started another project. Startitis? Me? You must be mistaking me for some other knitter. Say hi to my new train knitting, an Ishbel that I am making in Madtosh Merino Light celebration yarn that […]

Catching Up

Published by under Blather,FOs,Stash

I’ve been really busy. I started a new job, which means a new commuting route: So there is more train knitting. I bought some yarn too: Isn’t that luscious? I’m still trying to decide what I want to do with it. And I made my sister a shawl for her birthday: This is the Pinkerton […]

Red and White

I did not knit today. Today, I marveled. Through a not entirely random series of events (a quilt show at FIT, stopping in to use a coupon we go there at my mom’s favorite quilt shop in the city, and a conveniently placed pamphlet at the register) my mom and I ended up at the […]

Catching up

Just because I didn’t post about February’s socks in February doesn’t mean they weren’t finished in February. Really. RIVENDELL Pattern: Rivendell by Janel Laidman Yarn: Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label in Deep Sea, a birthday gift from J Needles: US 1 dpns Notes: Oh, these did come out breathtaking, didn’t they? But that wasn’t without […]

Start Afresh

Published by under Blather

So I never did a year-end post, did I? Guess what? This is as close as it gets, because I’ve been running around since New Year’s. So I counted, and I had 41 FOs for 2010, including 8 shawls, 6 pairs of socks, and 2 sweaters — and lots of gift knitting. I think that’s […]
