Quick Update…

Seems my blog’s database was hacked. I’ve fixed it, but forgot to back-up my themes in the process.

My patterns are back-up.

mdsw, 2011


I went down to the Maryland Sheep & Wool festival on Sunday. The weather was really nice. I was only at the festival for maybe 2 hours but got exactly what I was looking for. I kinda went crazy and stocked up on some Koigu and some mill-ends. I am still working on a crochet block blanket that is going to take me ~400 squares. I’m at a little over 200 now. I’m running out of my original Koigu colors and needed some new additions. Also got a teensy bit of roving in a very me color combo and some yarn for a summery thing.


I finally got to try ribbon chips this year. Kind of underwhelmed. Highlight of the trip was finding a new route there and back. I’ve taken the parkway in the past, this year I figured out how to take the turnpike. By figure out…I don’t mean follow the GPS, because it lies and in the past it had routed me on the longest, most boring road ever!

I am so surprised that I actually am conscious enough to write a semi-coherent post on a Monday!!
Meanwhile, I’m avoiding other things, such as email, FB, messages etc. Oh well.

today felt like spring


While today was humid and sort of gross, it felt just like the way spring and Easter should feel!
Still no knitting content. I’ve finished some things, but haven’t had time to photograph them. I’m kind of looking for the perfect project at the moment. I knit a massive Citron shawl in pink Malabrigo Lace last summer. I think I’ve worn it once, wrapped up as a big scarf. I loved knitting it. Mindless pattern with enough to keep it interesting, and soft yarn. Can’t seem to find a project that holds the same appeal.

Where does time go??

I have no idea.
Completely coincidentally this post comes almost a year to the day of my last.

A lot has changed.

Changed jobs, have had tons of fun, ate great food, bought some great things, entered into the world of sewing, did some knitting.

I wish I had more time. I’d add more to this site. I’ve got tons of ideas, but little time to actually implement them.

I had a nice day today. Had a manicure after work. Going to watch the newest episode of my favorite show. Tomorrow (Easter) is the first day off in over 2 weeks. Plan on sleeping late (which based on my new schedule prob means 8am is late!)

This blog needs a face-lift. Maybe that will be my goal for tomorrow. This is not me anymore, despite the barbie-sparkle-streetwalker-pink my nails were just painted.

still stuck on gray


Interesting pattern. Started this on the recommended needles but had to go up 2 sizes to get a better fabric and gauge. My cable placement differs from that shown in the pattern. I followed the directions exactly. The first chart set up row is on the wrong side row and sets the placement as ABCDA, which makes the right side rows ADCBA…which creates the pattern I got, not the one shown. I actually like it more like this, I didn’t really like how the cable pattern points up in the original anyway
