Back of the Queue (A Comedy of Errors)

Hello, crafty and sundry! Now, most of us will have a queue of projects in mind. I don’t know about most people, but I tend to leave it to one or two projects max, because I don’t want to have too many things tempting me — I work really hard to have one or two …

A Tiny Cardigan, and Bigger Hats

Hello, crafty and sundry!   When last we met, I was starting on a cardigan for my youngest daughter. I can report that as of today, it is done and complete! ¬† The buttons arrived this morning, and I quite happily sewed them on after I finished my for-pay work of the day. The nature …

No Second Sock Syndrome Here!

Hello, Crafty and Sundry! Happy new year and all that jazz, if you’re into it. As one might expect, knitting and gaming have occurred. I’m still on the Skyrim kick. I’ve been enjoying the holiday period for zoning out, which means more Skyrim than most other things. I’m level 55, I still have about 2 …

Washington High School for the …

Serf City: The Best of 1994

Hello, crafty and sundry! Now, I’ve been a gamer my entire life. There are games I still play all the time that are legal to drink in the US now, like my oft-played fave Serf City: Life is Feudal (Also known as The Settlers). I often have it up while I am doing other things …

Left, Right, Knit, Purl!

Hello, crafty and sundry! While most of my attention continues to be eaten up by Pok√©mon (I’m currently working on filling up the entire National Pok√©dex for once), I have been trying to make some sincere effort on my knitting as well. And not just normal, left-handed knitting — I’m also working on my right-handed …

Can’t Knit, Too Many Pok√©mon

Hello, Crafty and Sundry! One thing that is a constant source of amusement to me is the misconception that Pok√©mon is a game for children only. Yes, it’s cartoonish and cute, and nobody actually dies… but the first game came out in the late 1990s. Which means some of us have been playing the franchise …

And Suddenly, a Cardigan Appears!

Hello, crafty and sundry! I fell down the wormhole again… sorry about that. Computer problems tends to make me really bad about blogging ’cause the energy that would have happily gone to nattering about things gets eaten up by fret and stress. And also, it meant that I couldn’t get my gaming on in a …
