Pointlessness?

Not even close. Process versus product is a false dichotomy. THERE I SAID IT. Loads of people talk about whether they’re process knitters or product knitters — or whether a project is a process knitting project or a product knitting project — and I don’t think I’m one or the other. I can’t think of […]

Scratch that itch

But bethini, I hear you cry — oh yes, I hear you — what about the knitting? I’ve been cooking a lot and posting a lot about food: but things are getting unbalanced around here and there needs to be more fibre. This was brought arrestingly to my attention when I reached into my bag […]

Knitting report! Stat!

Okey dokey folkeys, let’s talk knitting. M got me a new camera for my birthday before we headed to NZ, and I have been ROCKING that baby.  And its macro setting. UFOs! (bold text to indicate sub-heading!) Silver sands scarf: not wild about the striping, but I’ve decided it’s not for me anyway.  Hoping to […]

Beginning

I have three new projects and I love them all like three new yarn babies.  After the triumphant finishing of my red Essential Tank and the slightly-less-triumphant-but-no-less-worthwhile finishing of my latest socks, I felt ready to kick off some new things. Let’s play Meet the Newbies. My Silver Sands scarf: This yarn is soooooo soooooooft. […]

Finished

Sometimes I do that thing where I don’t write for so long that I get scared about going back to it, scared that when I do finally put fingers to keyboard, I’ll have forgotten how — or worse, discover that I never really knew. I finished NaNoWriMo and I couldn’t be more astonished.  The piece […]

Weekend knitting

I love it.  I had reached that consummation most devoutly to be wish’d last weekend, and had nothing on my needles.  It turns out that this is not a situation I like nearly as much as I thought I would, and it, in fact, made me kinda itchy. The result was a lot of planning […]

Rationing

It’s moving time!  M and I are upsticks-and-leaving our current little house.  We’re going to bunk up with some family to save up for a few months; around six, I’m estimating.  It’s going to be awesome and I’m kind of excited by it all. I like our family, I like change — I don’t like […]

Zombie bunnies

As promised, some details on the zombie bunnies. About a hundred years ago (or so), I came across the Wee Bunny pattern and, at the time, thought it was just too, too cute and had to make it.  Downloaded the pattern, coaxed my Nan into surrendering some of her dainty chintz quilting cotton squares in […]

Lucky dip

I cleaned out my study today, and hell yes, it felt good.  I can see my desk and it is much, much bigger than I remember.  I recycled printouts and essays from my first semester of my Masters degree (that would be 2007), not to mention thousands of used envelopes with cryptic and archaic comments […]

Fizz fizz fizz

I am enjoying this post-Masters euphoria.  It almost makes it worth all the grief leading up to the end worth it, because it is so fantastic when you stop. Mind you, that’s the same principle that fans of the asphyxi-wank apply, and that doesn’t always work out so well for them.  My mind is fizzing […]
