Based on a True Sweater

Trying Something New

Zak and I were buying yarn at Three Bags Full last week, and I had a splitting headache from the sun. Just a block away at My Orange Bag was a hat that hadn't looked too bad on me when I'd tried it on with a friend a few weeks earlier.

It's been a surprisingly practical purchase. What do you think?

Come Back, Words...

Words are not my friends right now. I don't know what I did to them, but lately I'm finding it amazingly difficult to compose even the simplest email. If you're expecting an email from me and I'm taking forever to write back, I'm sorry... I hope the words and I will work out our problems, and that they will come back to me soon.

In other news, Happy Anniversary, Honey!

One Advantage of Being Large

I've spent the last hour or so trying to write a blog post about marriage that's been rolling around in my head for the last year or two, and I'm not having any luck getting it out. So for now, I'm just stopping by to say thank you for all your interesting and thoughtful comments about Pan's Labyrinth, and to show you a beautiful thing that was given to me recently.

You'll likely recognize the design as the cover sweater from the Winter 06/07 issue of Vogue Knitting. Ande knit it and it was huge on her, so she gave it to lucky me. Sometimes, it is a very handy thing to be much larger than one's friends. ;) I need to take more photos, but here's one for now:

Note the monstrous pin. I bought a bunch of kilt pins off eBay, and I have a few of these 12.5 cm (5") ones. I love them madly and need to think of more ways to wear them.

And I think that's it for me right now. The killer projects of the last few months are finally wrapping up, and there are others on the horizon. I'm catching up with the friends I hadn't seen much while I was working like mad, and I've met a few new friends. Though I seem to be unable to write a decent blog entry or reply to email, life is pretty good.
