Oops, I didn’t mean to go quite so long without posting! There’s a lot to catch up on, starting with the backlog of monkeys to introduce….
Here’s Thelma, who likes ice cream, surfers, and music videos. She lives up in Washington with the cool band Stuporhero.
Here’s Roscoe, who likes blocks, bulldozers, and peas. [...]
Few words, but lots of pictures!
In October, I knit my dad a pair of socks (Trekking with a simple ribbing) for his birthday:
In November I worked feverishly on my Sidewinder Skirt (which is almost done, just needing finishing work), and I quickly knit myself a Good Luck Cowl with a lovely skein of Koigu:
I also [...]
Seymour was amazed by all the jack-o-lanterns we saw in Boston earlier this month. The wall was only the beginning — there were many more groups all around the plaza.
I have a slight blog backlog of stash and WIPs and FOs, but for now I’ll leave you with a link to the Stuporhero Halloween [...]
After reading so many of these over the years, I can’t believe I’m writing one! After an exhausting Saturday in Boston, my friend Brie and I hopped into my red rental Ford Focus early Sunday morning and headed to Rhinebeck, NY. Despite our late start, we arrived only half an hour after our [...]

While watching college football this afternoon/evening (half of Michigan vs. Utah, all of Cal vs. Michigan State — Go Bears!), I finished two projects and started two projects… and none of them monkeys! (Don’t worry, I’m still knitting monkeys. I just may not be posting any of the current batch until I have [...]
Olympic knitting has made a lot of progress since the last time I took a picture, so the only update I will give is that the length of the rows have turned it from a fun project that I’ll watch boring Olympic events for to a tedious project that I’d choose monkey knitting over. [...]
Earlier this week at a knit night at Kate’s, while working on my 12th monkey, I was asked if I was competing in the Ravelympics. I firmly replied no, declaring myself a winter Knitting Olympics knitter only. But then Kate finished her beautiful Swallowtail Shawl, and Amanda finished her lovely Shetland Triangle Shawl… [...]
The monkeys had a grand time at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival before going their separate ways to their new forever homes. Here’s a group shot:
And a few of the gang hanging out in the “lemon tree” that spent time between the Loozer’s Lounge and Shantytowne, which have a rivalry similar to that of [...]
