Musical Monday: Paradise

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had relaxing weekends, mine was and I’m quite pleased with that.

My brother shared this video with me recently because I do love my elephants and it doesn’t hurt that I’m a fan of Coldplay too 🙂  What’s been playing in your ears lately?

Its Starting To Feel A Lot Like

Yesterday morning I woke up to a white world.


It’s gorgeous and new and the dogs love it, however my car did not and my first attempt to get to work was thwarted.

This new chill (a high of 30 degrees F? really?) reminds me that I must get on with my personal sock collection…after all the Christmas presents and custom orders I need to make…

What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?  Inspirational and exciting?

WIP Wednesday: Revival

This week I’m sharing with you a WIP that’s been on the needles for… well, months.  Although, in my defense, I did finish it once…I just frogged it back a long ways and redid 80% of it.

I don't really mind knitting it, its so pretty and so so so so so so soft

The Malabrigo Lace project is still on the needles.  Yes, yes I know it’s been months and months and …yea I know.

Take II

This time around, I may be racing the skeins.  Much like racing the clock, I am trying to knit to the end of this thing as fast as I can so that I don’t run out of yarn.  Makes sense yes?  Think I can do it?

Weekend Travels

I leave early tomorrow morning for a weekend of fun down at my old college (“old” college…that sounds weird…I haven’t been gone that long have I?) and so I won’t be around until Monday morning when I fly back, but I do plan on having a Musical Monday post for you, so tune in to see what I’m listening to!

Now I just need to get down to the hardest part about traveling – figuring out what to pack knitting-wise….

so many wips to choose from...or start something new?

Do you have any fun weekend plans?

Body Armor

I don’t know about you guys, but I wear a fair amount of jewelry.  I’m a fan of rings and I prefer silver to gold.  My ring collection started when I was….ten?  Maybe?  And by that, I mean that the ring that resides on the longest finger of my left hand was first placed there when I bought it at ten(ish) years old and hasn’t skipped a day of wear yet.

Armor and Weapons

This past weekend I bought myself two more rings, one to replace an amber flower with a broken band, and one to grace a pinky that hadn’t had a ring chosen for it yet.

Now, when I bought these I really did not realize the whole hippie side of having not only a peace ring but also a love ring, especially having bought them at the same time, but I do appreciate their message.

What body armor do you wear?
