Trains are cool

train

A few months ago Rob suggested taking a train out to California for his Aunt Elspeth’s 80th birthday party as a surprise. I was a bit lukewarm about the idea at first, as it meant I’d have to miss the Ann Arbor Fiberarts Guild Holiday Sale, but the more I thought about it, the more …

My excellent New York adventure

Or the story of Vogue Knitting Live 2012. Wow. Just wow. That’s the short version. The long version is much longer. With lots of pictures. Ok, let’s get started. We left Wednesday morning with Rob’s van loaded full of all of my yarn, fiber, wearable art, booth fixtures, our clothes, and so on and so …

A Plethora of Pics

I have a bad habit of taking pictures and then never getting around to posting them. So, today I present a backlog of photographs from the last few weeks. When we did the Wine & Wool Festival at Sandhill Crane Vineyards, I learned that one of the cool things about outdoor shows is dragonflies visiting …

46 for 46

Today is my 46th birthday. I decided to tell you 46 random things in honor of my 46th birthday. If you go to Zingerman’s on your birthday, you can get 6 free bagels. Their bagels are delicious. I’m eating my third bagel today. That makes me feel kind of like a pig, but I only …

Mmeh

I’m home with a migraine, so this might be a bit whiny and incoherent (or maybe just more whiny and incoherent than usual) so, um, sorry.  But remember the sweater I’ve been working on, like, forever?  The one whose sleeve I’ve frogged and reknit about 400 times now?  Yeah, that one.  I frogged the sleeve …

Blog Action Day

Happy Blog Action Day!  Well, I don’t know if I’m supposed to say Happy Blog Action Day, but that’s the day it is, so I’m supposed to write about it.  Or more specifically, I’m supposed to write about the environment. So I thought I would take this opportunity to write about all the things I …

Yumminess

Some of my long time readers may remember that I was trying to eliminate foods from my diet that would cause migraines or aggravate my acid reflux.  This was behind my rather drastic choice to forego chocolate, unless it appears before me in the form of someone’s birthday cake.  I won’t turn down birthday cake. …
