This endless head cold has been bad for spinning, but very good for garter stitch. I think our family has watched My Neighbor Totoro every day for almost two weeks. The girls are mostly better, and Jared’s been better so long that he’s starting on his next cold, but mine’s still hanging on. So it’s … More Fuzzy Definitely UNfinished
Wasn’t that fun? I really enjoyed doing a series of short posts on a theme. As a reader, I find series more engaging and fun to read, and as a writer, it spreads the workload of what would have been one long ridicu-post.

I had finished the body and divided off for the pockets in what seemed like good time, but for whatever, … More No Time, Must Knit
Day 8 of the Olympics, and we’re nearly though what I think of as the “swimming/gymnastics” half of the games, getting into the “athletics/whatever else TV decides to cover [generally not the stuff I want]” half of it.
