  • The Week September 18-24

    Last week: Weave in the ends of Aranami/Imanara (there are lots even though I’ve been weaving in as I go), and wash & block, then sniff & squish. All done! Choose and start a new knitting project. Will it be a blanket to give away or will it be a shawl to keep? I have…

    Last week: Order from Campus Cookies for Ethan for his birthday Thursday. Eat more of Ky’s cake to celebrate in Ethan’s absence. Our first birthday apart and his 18th.

    Last week: Saturday morning I have an appointment to have a cracked tooth pulled and an implant started. This is my first extraction since having my wisdom teeth out years ago and I’m a little nervous, but I’m looking forward to not having a tooth that complains about cool breezes, much less hot or cold…

  • Vacation and Possible Blogcation

    First of all, I want to apologize for falling behind in reading everyone’s blog; I feel like we have an unspoken agreement by following each other and I’m not holding up my end. I hope to get back in the swing of things next year. Next year!?!? Yes. I’ve mentioned before that we’re going to…
