Current Knitting Project: Doctor Who Scarf

I’m really in love with the way this scarf is looking. It took me a bit of trial and error to get the colors right; they don’t match the original perfectly (the purple should be more red, the green more brown-ish and the brown should be more orange), but they do balance well together the

Bike Trailer Cart Project

Hell, now that I have to blog for real instead of just saving links, I may as well go for broke. Here’s something I’ve been working on lately – making a cargo trailer for my bike out of an old kids bike trailer. I picked one up for $3 at the Goodwill Outlet. That’s a

Super Hero Cape

This is one of my current knitting projects – super hero capes for kids. I’m making at least three and possibly four of them; two red, (for Superman and Supergirl) one blue (Batgirl) and one white with gold trim (oh Mighty Isis), for some small folks I know. I started Saturday and made significant progress

Striped garter-stitch length-wise scarf

Finished up this striped garter-stitch scarf knit length-wise.

I finally got settled down with all the indecision about what new project I was going to try, and all the thought I

365 project – Day 3

D’oh! I forgot to take a photo. But this is why it’s about setting a goal, not making a resolution — I’m not going to make it a habit if I stop now that I’ve blown the perfect record. (And so early in the game, too!) I spend a good chunk of the day getting

365 project – Day 2

I remembered at the end of the day that I was trying to learn this new habit of taking a photo every day – so I quickly snapped a picture of Stephanie while she sat at her computer. I’ll do my best to avoid a lot of “quick take a photo” moments.

December? Oh my.

Wow – time to wrap up the year, and I’m utterly at loose ends with various projects. I’ve been working steadily on knitting projects, and organizing the house, two areas where we’ve made some pretty big gains. We’re steadily getting through the mounds of papers that need to be filed or thrown out, with the
