I’m having another fit . . .

. . . or perhaps I should say, another fitting. For what must be the sixth time I’ve transferred all of my stitches onto waste yarn so I can be sure that my Simple Knitted Bodice is going in the proper direction(s).

Too much to resist

I’ve been at it again — buying yarn which is gorgeous but I honestly have no business buying at the moment. And not just yarn but other stuff which was that completely irresistible thing . . . a Great Deal! I knew I should be worried when the Big Lots moved into my neighborhood.

The Tour is HOT

Oui, hot is one word I can use to describe the weather around these parts. Other appropriate words might be miserable, smoky, unhealthy, and Please, God, let it cool off again soon! So basically the best thing I can do with my time is stay inside watching the Tour on Versus and knitting — hmm, sounds like I’ve got very […]

And we’re off!

Yes, of course the Tour kicked off today, and even without the traditional Prologue, Stage 1 had plenty of excitement. As is usual this early in the race, nerves were high and there were a number of crashes. Luckily none of them appeared early on to be very serious — with the exception of one which took young Cofidis rider […]
