Scarfie’s First Outing.

So… I’m not counting the times when I wore the scarf, pretending it was mine >.< I really want one now. It just is so beautiful! I may be a simple creature, but the never-ending combinations of Noro colors just endlessly charm me. I want to make a hundred of these scarves. People have remarked …

A Finished Object and a Photography Lesson!

Hello, my dear readers!  Today I bring you a special treat. For too long, I have been taking crappy pictures in crappy lighting with nothing but my iPhone camera and my extremely poor photography skillz. It was finally time to say enough!

Bad blogger! Bad!

Soooo, yeah. I’m a bad blogger. And I really have no excuse except for that I’m a moody creature sometimes, and I haven’t recently felt like writing. I don’t have any real knitting content for you guys, (well, I did finish something, but I’m not posting it until I weave in those ends!) So we …

Soooo.. Change of plans.

I had a very nice surprise for all of you planned for today. However, due to a series of comically unfortunate events, (comical for all the people who weren’t stricken with the deadly hell-plague known as the flu.) we are going to be just a teensy-weensy bit delayed with the surprise. Um.. Happy new year …
