I’m chuckling a bit at my last post. I’m not usually one to overburden myself, and I generally settle into a nice rhythm of craftiness, laziness, and quality family time during the holidays. Not this year! I decided it’d be fun to have this be the year of handmade Christmas gifts, which did turn out … More Why I need a vacation after Christmas vacation!
Hey, remember when this was a blog about knitting?? This month, with the Olympics in full swing, the Ravellenic Games (I still can’t get used to that name change. Gack.) have been rolling, too, and apparently they’ve been the impetus I needed to kick my knitting into gear. I signed on to knit a pair … More Feffer really does knit.
I swear, I was going to come over here and make some kind of epic blog post to catch everyone up on the thousands of things I’ve missed posting in the ages and ages since my last entry and…yeah. So. It’s only been, well, OK, 10 weeks, but that’s really not all that long and … More Have I really only missed ONE month?!
I’ve been knitting! I know, I know–it’s been a while since there’s been any evidence of yarny goodness going on around here, but I swear, the needles have been flying behind the scenes. For ages now, I’ve been plodding along on a couple of pairs of gloves for the boys. Way back in November, they … More Knitting update!
and then I come here, look at my blog, sigh, and then close the computer. I’m so boring these days. I’ve been having trouble with my thyroid lately, and after the radiation treatments, everything just makes me feel tired and blah. I haven’t done much lately, so I don’t feel like I have much to … More I keep meaning to come and post…
What did I tell you? I had the flu last week, and really all I could do was lie around and…well, lie around. Occasionally I had the energy to knit while I lay there. But not having the mental energy to work on Justin’s sweater (more on that later) I made the boys dive through … More I’m sensing a trend….
I’m one of those people who knits selfishly. I started knitting mainly out of boredom, but also because I was fairly sure that if I could sew what I wanted to, I could create the knitted things that I wanted in just the same way. I mean, why not? Tangent: it always makes me sad … More Confessions of a Sock Convert
I’ve spent the last two months busting my rear on little christening outfits for Audrey and Rowan. I’ve loved making them–they’re so wee! And pretty! And white yarn really does look so crisp and sweet all knitted up. But I’ve been ready to be done, now, for about two weeks, so I’m proud to announce … More C’est fini!
I took this picture a few weeks ago. I’d spent about an hour getting the seats all put together the way I wanted, and putting on the little BundleMe-s (because February babies get cold!) and suddenly it hit me. Two. TWO carseats! TWO BABIES. AGAIN. I think I’ve been having a hard time really comprehending … More Two by two
And 85 degrees today. Well, at least it’s fall in name, and I’m ready for it. Fall’s been my favorite season for years–I love the crisp mornings, and it makes me feel like digging through my yarn stash and doing all kinds of project-y things. I realized the other day that I haven’t talked about … More It’s Autumn Time! It’s Autumn Time!
