There is actual knitting going on chez moi. This is Knitty’s Eleanor knitting up nicely in Kitchen Sink Dyeworks bamboo merino blend. I found this lovely yarn on sale at Chicago’s YarnCon in early October.
I seem to be knitting this neckwarmer in fits and starts, having cast on 132 stitches and letting it sit [...]
The cool, grey days. The school bus days. The days with geese flying away in formation toward warmer climes. It’s days like these that say to me loud and clear, “Where the heck have you been?! Could you have been knitting and crocheting and just forgot to blog about it?” My answer is D) None [...]
It was Monday morning. As is his habit, Nik stood on my chest long enough to wake me and make known his desire for his 4 a.m. feeding. He does this every morning, like I’d forget or something. Not bloody likely after 13 years. I’m a creature of habit, too, buddy. I know how it [...]

More precious than gold,This bond’s strength depends solelyOn how you tend it.
What else do friends do? They let you lick the spoon.
When I was in my early teens, my friends and I would go downtown to the movies. Any remaining money we had would be pooled to buy munchies and drinks at the corner snack shop. I always remembered this place because it was a remnant of a bygone era, with its huge neon sign above [...]
I may have had a major case of timorous writers block, but I certainly did not get bottled up on the crafting front. Hats, neckwarmers, a scarf – even a New Year’s trip to Toronto – they all kept me busy. There are a couple of other items in the works but this will do [...]
Who wouldn’t love a paper or plastic chomping, lamp tipping, door / cabinet / drawer opening, stubborn, sweet, curious, loyal orange and white neurotic kitty like you?
You may be 12 years old now. Maybe you can’t jump on the counter nearly as often as you used to. And yes, you’ve gotten very picky [...]
