Hello, dear readers. This may look like a picture of ribbing, or the beginning of a ribbed beanie, but it is actually a picture of three weeks. Three weeks is a long time in blog land, but in real life it went by in a snap. In these three weeks, I had my first tenure … Continue reading Still Knitting
Greetings, dear readers, from the land of the barely awake. Few words this morning, but I have pretty things to show you. Lovely KnitCircus gradient yarn that came in the bag of funder goodies from the Great Northern Knits Kickstarter. A Talamu shawl, with the end in sight.

Last Saturday was an outrageously SPRING day, with the lilacs and ornamental cherries and trees with white flowers and trees with tiny mauve flowers going crazy, and I decided … Continue reading Lilacs
Greetings famous Arizona! After last week's Epic Rain, we then received the remnants of a hurricane, of all things. I am sorry for all the people who have suffered damage from the rain, but unlike the wacko politicians who usually put Arizona in the news, these storms were unavoidable. Yesterday's dark, threatening clouds didn't produce … Continue reading Hurricanes and High Seas
