The Wee Hours, with a Wee Girl

Once again, I'm up late, with a sleepy baby on my lap, with only my knitting and the computer for company. Fortunately, I don't require a lot of company. I actually quite like having just a bit of quiet time more or less to myself. It is something I rarely get, these days, as a parent of two small children.

A Rare Ailment

It would appear that I have contracted an affliction rare to knitters... That's right - finishitupitis. In the past three weeks, I have finished 3 works in progress (one of which was cast on nearly 10 months ago. My current main project is a pair of lace socks that I have restarted, after having to frog the first sock, for coming out too small.

One Little Kitten...

... lost her mittens, and she began to cry... "Want mittens back!"

However, the little blue mittens, handknit from fingering weight merino wool that my darling girl picked out from the yarn store, herself, were nowhere to be found. Returning to the produce market (our only previous stop on our errands run), and conducting a search also failed to yield the mittens. Ditto with having a staff member check the lost and found. The mittens were just gone.

It's been HOW long?!?

Wow, it's been nearly a year since I posted a blog entry. Not a very good blogger, am I? 8^) Guess I've just been too busy / haven't thought of much to say. So, what am I up to? I've had computer issues. Been working on an RPG website. Taking care of my daughter. Working, and having a transition there. Playing RPGs. Playing Facebook games. 8^) Knitting, etc.

Sweaters, Classes, and Poison Ivy

Hey, I actually got back to this, before an entire month passed! I really need to find a way to get to this more often, because stuff that seems very blog-worthy at the time of occurrence seems less so, once a few weeks have passed, especially as any "fun" details fade.

Random Tuesday

Well, hello. Here ends another multiweek (5-6, I believe) gap in my blogging. As much as it disappoints me that I've lapsed for so long, there is some good news in my life:

My Etsy shop is up, and I've got a couple items listed, though I have three more that I really need to get up there. I also have to get some pictures to my sister-in-law, so she can help me make an actual banner for the shop.

Since my last post, I did manage to get one major yardwork session in. I did a lot of bush/tree trimming.

Progressing

Well, I'm signed up for my first class in my drive to my next degree/career. It is an online class that starts in July. It's a small thing, perhaps, but it is a beginning. I'm looking forward to it, even as I'm wondering how I'll manage future classes, around KB. One thing at a time, however. Besides, it feels good to have made a start.

Catching Up, and More Prayer, Please

I feel like I'm behind in everything - behind on the dishes, the cleaning, the accounts, getting a start on yardwork for the season, my knitting, blogging... pretty much you name it. So, first off, let me say that I really enjoyed my spinning class. I'm getting slightly better than "lousy" with a hand spindle, and I even got to try a wheel (with which I'm absolutely horrible). The ladies that run the shop where I took the class were very nice, and it is a great shop, in general.

Random Thoughts, #whatever

I feel like I seldom blog, though when I look at my history, it appears this is now my 48th blog post (how did I get to that many?), and at least of late, it looks like I've been managing to write something about once a week. Odd, isn't it?

Blog Improvements and Miscellany

I just spent about half an hour to 45 minutes going through my blog, and adding "Previous" and "Next" links to the top of every entry. As cool as I think Drupal is, I think the apparent lack of a more automated way to do this is a bit of a hole in the blog module. If there is a way, and I just don't know it, somebody please let me know.
