Retraction

You know, of my previous statement about how hard Tamie was working today.

Guest feet

Today’s guest post feet are provided by Tamie. Please note that her feet are working just as hard as mine were yesterday, but even more brightly. This is one of the pairs of dog-sitting socks that I’ve made for her. (And also note that her birthday is mere days away, and you could wish her […]

Not that interesting

Er, hi. Yes, I haven’t posted in a while. First, I was frantically busy with the fiber arts symposium, and the houseguests, and all. Then Laura and I spent a highly relaxing week drinking tea and burrowing through many interesting books on string. Not a highly blogworthy activity, no matter how much we both enjoyed […]

How I spent my weekend

My SCA fiber arts symposium made the news. That’s actually one of the best articles I’ve read about an SCA activity – the author must be a participant. There’s a new tablet weaving list on Ravelry. (Sneaking in under the knitting-radar!)

Whew!

The fiber arts symposium was a smashing success, the best one ever! Things went smoothly, the food was excellent, the classes were well-attended and well-liked, and site cleanup was quick and easy.

Adulthood

I feel so grownup. This weekend we bought new furniture, from an actual furniture store. Okay, it was on clearance, but still… It took under two minutes for them to receive the Morgan seal of approval. I don’t think we’d carried everything in from the car before he was happily perched on one of them. […]

A bit of everything

I have been berated for the lack of updates here. Sometimes it isn’t so convenient to work in the office next to one of your most faithful blog readers. So, without further ado, an update on all the forty-leven things I’ve been working on, or as many as I can cram into my lunchbreak. And […]

Snowflakes

One I could have written off as imagination, or perhaps stray plant bits flying past on the wind. But now, I’ve now seen five out my office window above the computer, and, well, they’re snowflakes. D’you suppose it’s time to think about turning the heat on?
