The roomie and I … are ENGAGED!  He got me drunk, proposed at home.  And in the morning after i sobered up, I didn’t change my mind.  I’m really happy.  Really, really, happy, although some of the bloom wore off and I went back to my normal annoyed state of being.  But, we are engaged!  […]

Pilgrimage 2010


This weekend, I will be at . . . RHINEBECK! It is like knitter’s mecca.  Maybe not just knitters, but all fibery people generally. Between the foliage season (which is kind of a bust this year) and Rhinebeck, rooms cost an arm and a leg.  So my friend and I will be camping.  It might […]



I’ve been knitting for reals for about a year and a half now, and I think I will truly become a knitter after next weekend, after I attend the NY Sheep and Wool Festival, aka Rhinebeck.   My pass is bought, the campsite is booked. In the meantime, here are some pics from the NH Sheep […]

I celebrated a birthday recently and requested a pair of the Heather Ross Keds from Zazzle.  (She blogged about them here.) They arrived this morning at 7:45 a.m. and I promptly went back to sleep. I had been up late chatting with the BFF who was in town visiting. When I finally opened them at […]

I logged onto WordPress to post about a knitting finished object (FO) but realized that the giftee might, just might, read this, so I’ll post about my weekend to Vermont, instead! The roomie is in college now, so he has these things called “Spring Break.” I miss things like spring break, and winter vacation, but […]

I know it’s not a new decade, but I’m going to pretend it is, because 2010 is such a nice, round, happy number, and it’s a good time for a fresh start. I’m not a big fan of resolutions, because every day is an effort to be better, isn’t it? I’m not trying to be […]

Winter CSA


Based on the advice of a friend, I signed up for the Shared Harvest CSA, a three month winter CSA. You get three deliveries, once each month for October, November and December. We got our first share last weekend. It was quite some feat getting about 40 pounds of vegetables into our modest condo and […]

Please don’t hate me, blog. Back in hot, steamy July, I had the good fortune to travel to Vermont, and spend the weekend with a bunch of lovely ladies.  Those women included none other than Heather Ross, of Weekend Sewing, et al. fame, and Liesl Gibson, of Oliver & S, et al. fame.  Sure, I paid […]

I haven’t been stashing yarn and fabric for that long, but I stumbled across a very compelling project on one of the blogs I read, Pink Chalk Studio, who also runs a fabulous online fabric shop, btw. It’s called Iraqi Bundles of Love. In short, the idea is to gather raw sewing and knitting supplies […]

Book club for Thunderbolt Kid was canceled at the last minute, and I missed today’s meeting on The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie Society because our trip to the Nashoba Valley Winery ran longer than expected. We went to the winery to partake of the beer, pretzel and mustard pairings, but by the time we […]
