Patience is virtue

I finished it. Say hello to Intolerable Cruelty 2: Silver Cruelty. You know what that means? (I can go up stairs! I can casually pose in the kitchen!) I’m on the mend. I held off finishing this skirt because I cast it on the day I got sick and then I kept being sick; and then […]

In which you learn the bitter truth

I’m still recovering from being sick and that means Recovery Knitting.  If you continue reading this blog post, I can assure you that you are unlikely to find anything of interest.

Awashed away

This morning, when I got up, it was too early.  I was tired and slept unevenly — not badly, some of it was quite nice, like waking up and hearing all the rain whooshing and frogs going beserk with glee.  And I spent some of it trying to invent a new word to adequately capture […]
