The many faces of…

Becca is such a funny little thing. Ok, well maybe not so ‘little’ anymore, but she’s still little to me.  And probably always will be. There’s so much personality wrapped up in one small child that sometimes I think she might explode from it. Actually, at times I think she has. Everything is magnified with […]

Notes from the garage

So yes, I am sitting here in my garage, laptop in hand (so to speak) – but for very good reason. I’m having a garage sale! I’d almost forgotten how much work goes into this kind of thing – it’s pretty much taken over my life for the past few days as I’ve sorted through, […]

A quick note about sizes and gauge

I’m not usually the type of knitter who takes the time to knit a gauge swatch, but let’s face it, when you’re mostly knitting scarves and such it really doesn’t matter. My first difficulty with gauge came when I made my first hat for the girls. The pattern was for a ‘one-size-fits-all’ ADULT hat, but […]

I ♥ “Yellow” Faces

This week’s theme is “Yellow”. Interestingly enough, I went from not having any idea what picture to use, to having 3 or 4 possible ones that were very difficult to choose from. In the end though, I picked this picture, in part because I love the prominence of the yellow megaphone – especially with her […]

live. laugh. blog.

That’s the slogan on the t-shirt that I brought home with me this weekend from Gleek Retreat 2010 – and it pretty much says everything. Ok, so maybe not exactly everything. But it definitely sums up what was an intense, amazing, educational, inspiring, fun and just plain awesome experience rather well. I’m still trying to […]

Yes, this weekend I will be ‘Gleeking’

Whatever that specifically means, I’m not actually sure. But I’m looking forward to finding out, as I will be spending most of the weekend away at the first ever Gleek Retreat – a blogging conference. Not just any blogging conference either – this one is practically in my very own backyard, only about 30 minutes […]

Wherever I go…

So I find myself lately unable to leave the house without my knitting bag – even when I know for absolute certain that I won’t be having any opportunities to knit while I’m out. It’s the same way that I used to be about books – I was never without a book at hand when […]

Wordless Wednesday #146 – Sometimes you just have to look at life in 3D

Ok, so the 3D effect isn’t exactly the same through the camera lens. But you get the idea. See more photos at Wordless Wednesday, 5 Minutes For Mom and over at my other site, JAMTOT! 1. In the Kitchen With Audrey 2. Lauren @ Hobo Mama = Boys day out (w/linky!) 3. How Time Flies […]

Rocking Horse

So I finished the next washcloth yesterday…  I do really like these because they are so quick to knit. Kind of a bit boring after a while though, which is nice to have them as an extra project that’s easy to take on-the-go or if I just want to knit and not have to concentrate […]
