Happy Caulking Day! It’s probably not really Caulking Day officially, but who says that any day can’t be Caulking Day? I realized yesterday that there was some pretty serious crackage going on around the window frames in our house, so today Travis and I bought some caulk at Lowes and set about trying [...]

I have been in the No Blogging Zone for the past week. I think it’s because I’m pretty much entirely knitting gifts right now, and I can’t really blog about that lest I ruin any surprises. So I’m way behind on any sort on internet related stuff. I think my Googlereader has [...]
…Paul Simon in a turkey suit is classic.
Travis and I did the family rounds this Thanksgiving. We visited both of our families in Indiana and had a lot of fun and ate some really good food. Here’s Brandi, chilling out between courses at my parents’ house:
Here’s some of our Thanksgiving spread:
Mmm, brussel [...]
I can’t help myself. It’s a combo of Spoon’s Don’t You Evah and a Peep-looking robot. WANT.
Yeah, I’ve done some spinning and stuff, too, but I’ll post about that later. Until then, there’s this:

I think I’ve figured out what the problem was – I have a lot of thin sock yarn (anything that needs to be knit on a size 2 needle or smaller qualifies as thin in my book). I have a lot of Christmas socks I’d like to knit. I keep wanting to design [...]
After I got done with the second pair of foot sweaters I was knitting for my nephew Tyler for Christmas, my knitting slump returned, which is a bit of a bummer. Well, I did knit an earflap hat last night, but I need to add some pom poms and braids to it before it’s [...]
So, Craftstravaganza was yesterday! Katie, Lizzie, and Terry (with Mocha) came over to have a Day O’ Crafts with Travis and myself. It was A Hoot. There was a lot of dog angst, because Mocha wanted Bela to be his girlfriend, and Bela was all, “Get out of my butt, Mocha!” (Katie: [...]
I’m steadily making progress on the second Red Stripe sock.
I’ve got about a 1/3rd of the foot and the toe left to do, and then Travis will have two! Yay! I’m trying to get it done so he can have shiny new socks for Craftstravaganza. Oh, and Becky, the pattern is something [...]
Got the first Red Stripe sock done last night. Travis hasn’t been home yet to try it on, but when I tried it on, it seems like the fit is spot on.
Here’s an up-close of the heel and sneaky sole gusset shaping:
I’m loving the sneaky gusset. I can’t wait to knit up a pair [...]
I’m still camped out in the living room with all of the knitting, and have been working on a new project. But before I show pictures of that, I have pictures of this:
Dianne sent me goodies! The first pic is of some of her mernio/tencel yarn dyed in the Callaloo colorway, which I [...]
