Bits and Bobs

I have two longer posts that I need to finish up, but I’m trying to post every few days and since it’s been, oh, five, I thought I’d do a brief list of what’s happening. I have solved my yarn problem. Out of the few stashes that actually had...

Frustration

I have been working on my Evenstar shawl. Been working on it steadily since Thanksgiving weekend with only one brief trip into a side project and last night I realized the end was nigh. Unfortunately, the end was the end of my yarn, not completing the pattern. I have...

TCM Remembers 2014

I wouldn’t necessarily call it a “highlight” but one item I treasure each year is the annual TCM Remembers video. We know the big names, but there is always a number of those whose faces we recognize, even if we don’t know the name, as well as...

It’s a Mystery

One of the fun aspects about Ravelry (aside from finding folks who are just as nuts about yarn as you) is the Knit Along, aka “KAL.” Group of knitters take the same pattern and knit the item, providing encouragement and support — and often, useful...

Life is what happens…

I had today’s post all planned. It was going to be a cheery one, all about the joys of Mystery Knit-Alongs and the fun to be had there. All of that went out of my head yesterday morning when the husband called and began the conversation with the words...

On the road

Okay, I’ve finally found a use for Facebook. Several of my fellow writers, including Maria Powers, Christine Ashworth, and Maggie Marr, have been logging their exercise under the hashtag #healthywriter. Needing a kick in the pants, I jumped in. Earlier in the...

Take Time Out for Yourself

I’m done with NaNoWrimo for this year. I hit my 50K on Thursday morning, and then managed to finish up the book’s current last scene later in the day for a total of 50,863. In between that, I read the lessons at my church’s Thanksgiving services, had...

Giving Thanks

May we all enjoy an abundance of love and happiness today and every day throughout the year. And pie. It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without...

Staring Down the NaNo Tunnel

I wrote 2,133 words this morning. Let me clarify. I wrote 2,133 words between 5:30 and 7:15 AM. That is…a lot of words. At this moment, I have 2,298 words to go, four days left, and pretty much just the climax to sketch out before I have something that I want to...

Caro Kinkead

I'm a writer doing the "work a day job/write when I can/whip things into shape for submission/actually submit once in a while" dance between family responsibilities, finding time to read and adding to my knitting stash. In the meantime, I'm trying out some new things here and we're going to see what bubbles up.
