Breaking the silence

December 15th, 2022 · Comments Off on Breaking the silence

It’s been way too long since my last post. That has been the case for the last number of years unfortunately. Weirdly enough I was reading through my older posts from around 2006 and I was able to post more often and make more stuff while having two small children. Now those monkeys are 19. So much has changed, especially in the last year. I’m no longer in NJ, but a first time homeowner living in South Carolina and as of three weeks ago the mom to a puppy.

as Ferris beuller said life comes at you fast. Reading old posts, I’ve somewhat inspired myself to get back to regular crafting and posting.

craft on.

Moving Sale – Part 1!

April 24th, 2022 · Comments Off on Moving Sale – Part 1!

I’m starting to go through the massive amount of stuff that I have and don’t want to pay to move things that I don’t use. Today I went through two shelves of books in the basement and weeded out all these books. As there are still more shelves to sort and only 2 months or two before I move, these books need to find a new home soon (or they’re going to Goodwill). Make me an offer for em if you want em:

Start the day

March 11th, 2015 · Comments Off on Start the day

I was at the mall with the kids last weekend, mostly window shopping.  One of the stops was the toy/calendar store where they were the 2015 calendars were 75% off.  Not having bought one this year, I perused them.  I found one that a quick glance of the back made me laugh out loud in the store.  I had to buy it.   Here is March’s picture.  It makes me laugh every time I read it.

Just wait until April!

Yup I do still knit socks!

Having decided a few pairs back that two at once isn’t all terrible, I on another pair that way. I didn’t like the heel I had been using so I’m trying something different and new this go around. Would you believe that after all these years of knitting socks that I’ve never done an afterthought heel? Hard to believe I know! I’m finally trying it now. So far so good. That reddish pink row is the placeholder for the heel.

The picture was taken yesterday so I’m a little further along now. Hope to finish up the tubular knitting in the next day or so and then get to the heels. If I like this approach, I might just invest in some semi solids to use for heels and toes 🙂

Day Five

August 15th, 2014 · 3 Comments

There is absolutely no progress to update.

Yesterday’s company outing was to Governor’s Island where we spent the day playing, eating and team building.  It was a beautiful day, weather was perfect for spending the day outside.   I knit not a further stitch as the outing included an open bar 😉  i indulged a tad.  Had to text mom and ask that she pick me up at the train as driving wasn’t a good idea. On the up side, I found that I did better at particular games after drinking a bit!

Craft on 🙂

Three weeks

June 4th, 2014 · 1 Comment

I’m now in the third week at the new job and totally enjoying it. So far it had been a really good move. Also it has been good for the knitting production.  Third week and I’m on the third sock. One problem that I just discovered is that the first sock in the current pair has a different number of stitches than the one I’m working on now 🙁


This is for Kathryn and i think it will be too narrow for her or the difference of four stitches is going to be too noticeable for her to deal with but i won’t know until i get home. Sigh.  Oh well. I can play 2048 for the rest of the ride home.

Craft on!

You want to see what happen when you let a ten year old boy watch a little Game of Thrones? Well you come home from work to find this by the front door (or castle gate if you prefer)…

 So very proud of my son Joffrey Alexander.
