Well, You Wanted Pictures!
2008-05-10 00:23:00
I was very lovingly informed that I really should post more pictures. Preferably of yarn. Ok! It was a rather nice day today, and the sock yarn was really starting to feel neglected, so out came the sock yarn! Unfortunately, the sun was out full force, so most of the pictures of the yarn are a ...

Combat Boot Socks
2008-05-08 21:58:00
Woot! Pictures today! First off, the in-progress Combat Boot Socks : What’s that you say? Are those cables? Why, yes they are! I’m still not sure if I like cabling in black yarn. Or maybe it’s just the size of these cables, which really are just crossed stiches. I won’t be frogging, but I’m thinking no more cables. Not ...

The Inspiration for Zombies and The Living Dead
2008-05-05 17:30:00
Part of being Mom is going on even when you just want to climb back in bed, pull the covers over your head and not come out. It means taking kids to school and making meals and finding everyone clean clothes even when everything hurts and your head can’t decide if it’s going to explode ...

May Goals - Your Thoughts?
2008-05-05 00:25:00
I usually don’t make my monthly goals public. But this month is a bit different. You see, I need your feedback on a few things… some rather important things, too. I guess I should explain, huh? Over the past couple of months or four, I’ve been seriously looking at expanding the types of yarn in the ...

Dyeing Withdrawal, Phase One: Blogging About Dyeing
2008-05-03 23:43:00
I spent a good chunk of today patting, stroking, caressing, yes, even fondling, a large set of yarn samples that I originally brought with me as food for thought about new yarns to introduce. Except I am now using the sample set as a security blanket, no, a lifeline, to my undyed babies. My babies ...

Oriri Draco Design v2.0
2008-05-01 00:06:00
Finally, ODD v2.0 is finished! The Gallery isn’t themed, the Contact forms aren’t up and the shop still doesn’t match… yet. Yes, eventually, this design will be throughout the entire site. It just might be a while, since I’m actually doing it myself. (I feel a bit like a one woman army!) What do you guys ...

Well, I HAVE Been Knitting?
2008-04-23 05:22:00
But I’ve been ‘coding’ more than I’ve been knitting, and despite my best intentions when it came to taking photos and writing about how the Combat Boot Socks are coming along… and the funky, creative things I’ve been thinking about doing with that pattern… I got ‘coding’ and lost track of time. So even though I’ve ...

Soccus Versus Machina
2008-04-21 04:37:00
Right, well. I’m having doubts that the Combat Boot socks will actually fit my husband. However, I am holding back on frogging (a second time) because he says his socks do not actually fit him skin tight, so some loose spots are not a bad thing. I guess 80 stitches on US 1’s should in ...

Finished Socks, More Socks!

Woot! I have a finished object, the Fireworks Socks ! (Ok, yes, they took me forever, but they are finished! I figure it comes with the Improvising New Pattern territory, yes?) Side view, with the poofy heel from heel-cuff shaping: Top view on my big ol’ feet: Instep view, where you can kinda-sorta see the ankle shaping: I had a ...

Hai! I Can Haz Yarn Pitchurs Cuz I Are Alive!
2008-04-17 19:07:00
We’re in billeting, or the on-base hotel, for now. We’ll be here a while, too, seeing as how finding a place to rent is difficult at best, and on base housing is still nearly a month out from being available. We’ll survive - there is a kitchen in the room, and a park nearby for ...

Stitch Markers & Thoughts On Wholesale
2008-03-19 04:57:00
I’ve been working on stitch markers for socks and lace, all made of sterling silver and Swarovski glass pearls. I’ve been winding finished yarns and cleaning in preparation for moving, plus the usual Mommy of Three Under Age Six gig. I keep telling myself that I will actually get around to listing yarn in the ...

The Little Dyer That Could
2008-03-13 04:25:00
Been so quiet over here! It’s because I’ve been feeling a bit down lately; a combination of the time change and subsequent lack of sleep, the upcoming move and having a hard time deciding where I want to go with parts of the business. I’m still here though, still working and still dyeing. Even have ...

To Err Is Human?

To err is human, but to really foul things up you need a computer. -Paul Ehrlich Having a hell of a day, and it’s not even 11am. I’m trying to order samples from a company that carries several base yarns I’ve been trying to find. However, my email clients are not cooperating. Each time I send mail, ...

I?m Alive, Promise!

I’m alive, I promise, I’m alive!! I’ve been quiet because my dear husband took from Valentine’s Day to my birthday (Feb 22nd) off, as something of a present to me. So I spent the past week or so catching up on quality time with him, sleep and slacking on all things work related. It was ...

Quiet & Anniversaries
2008-02-21 16:09:00
Things have been quiet on the yarn front this week. I have four new sock yarns to list, two more dyeing, and several more I need to get started. I’ve had requests to do more bulky and worsted, and am looking at the possibility of ordering more base yarn in those weights, and a possible ...

It only took three tries, but I GOT them. Ok, they aren’t as close as I want, but they are as close as I can get without absolutely losing my mind. Jungle Green, which is a bit more green, a bit less blue - second photo shows the different colors the best: Emerald, which is actually pretty ...

AAAAAAAAAAARG? And Yarn Pictures.
2008-02-15 02:31:00
So. Very. Frustrated. I’ve spent most of the evening trying to take pictures of yarns. Some I can get, but three greens, no matter what I do, come out looking WAY more blue than they are. I’ve tweaked, set and reset the white balance until I’m blue in the face, messed with lighting until I see ...

Still No Pictures?
2008-02-13 05:06:00
…but I’ve got a list of what is to come! Three colors reskeined: Berry Tarty, Coffee Bean, and Yeen & Grellow. Three colors drying: Emerald, Jungle Green and Unicorn Purple. Three colors in round one of dyeing: a tealy-turquoise that needs more blue, a grey-blue showing signs of pink, and a red-brown that’s gonna look like something else ...

In The Works
2008-02-10 22:59:00
In The Works : Three different literally-hand-painted greens. One purpley-blueish hand paint. Two pretty coffee-bean brown semi-solids. Two magenta and not sure what else yets. Six blanks soaking. You’d think with all the work I’ve been doing, I’d have gotten more done! The hand painted’s take a LOT of time though, since I’m trying to work out the process needed to ...

Let?s Get This Party Started!
2008-02-09 19:56:00
The chemicals I’ve been out of arrived yesterday. Larger dye containers and some new tools were purchased. Forty-seven hanks of yarn are ready for dyeing. Four hanks are soaking in prep for some experimental dyeing I’ve been itching to do, and now have the tools to do. Aerosmith, Prince, Bon Jovi, Black Eyed Peas and ...
