The current #forgottenscarf is white. For once my phone is making something -too- white, it’s closer to cream.

I’ve had this thug since high school where I’m fascinated by how a stitch pattern shifts according to the color it’s knit in. I started with blue so I’ll work my way through green and find a new cable.

I’m not doing a Green Monday event because honestly 4 am this morning was the first time I’ve ever heard this phrase.

I never formally closed commissions but Saturday I’m formally opening them again, including #thrums. I mailed 12 pieces today and hope to get more off needles this week.

This is called children’s hats, 6 am.

You are devilishly hard to have a conversation with!

Scarf just lays there

Old Marley was as dead as a doornail. This must be distinctly understood or nothing wonderful will come of the story I’m about to relate.

I fell into a habit this fall of pulling back on social media at the beginning of the month.

Sometimes I kind of...forget to come back. Plus this week has just been intense; I’m getting Mid readjusted to Buffalo, trying to get as much #knitting done as I can, there was a random #snowstorm...I wasn’t thinking photos.

Obligatory new #boot photo

Weird, random fact that I cannot explain at all. 
I cry every time Mary/Marian energy is invoked. It’s happened for years. Need me to cry on command? Play Breath Of Heaven.

I don’t have an answer for year. It means I spend a lot of time in December crying.

Let me tell you how I loathe the #Target brand cone filters. Maybe I got a bad box but in theory they should fit my pour over without issue. Every single one I’ve used has torn out and I’ve had to refilter my coffee.

This time I just resorted to grabbing random quilters cotton because I know that won’t tear out. I find cloth filters finicky and I end up wearing grounds but I don’t want to chew my coffee either.

I have two more #getyouryarnwishesgranted packages to go out (and this weeks cards)
❄️❄️❄️
My husband is quite literally on his way home to #buffalo right now. He’s transferring back to the city. This is the #Christmas gift I wanted most this year. But it means checks are a little odd right now (and we had to put tires on the pick up for him to even leave Wisconsin-they said they were literally the baldest tires they had seen. Go big or go home). So when he’s driving again these packages can go out

I’m very excited about the #december #promotion!

Every order shipping between December 1st and December 31st ships with a mystery scratch off presenting you with a discount. The discount will range between 10% to 50%. These discounts can be used once on any order.

Why yes I still cannot glue anything on straight and yes you can buy #diy #scratchoff stickers on Amazon (and they’re incredibly cheap compared to the kits #Starbucks has, fyi.) #knit

1. I will probably not have enough yardage for this gauge for this size. If the sock didn’t fit I’d just tear out now and drop a size or two

2. The sock fits

So I ordered some green yarn to alternate into the second sock. Not a big deal

Ready for their finishing and boxing.

Honestly? I’d use a different cast on going forward. Unfortunately I decided that last night so that falls under ‘future me problems’

Weird zoom and cropping so my co workers aren’t like why are you taking photos of our cars

I’ve worked next to this mega church for a decade and I honestly cannot tell you it this light tree is normal. In fairness I always worked on a completely different exit
