New in the Etsy Store

You know you want one.


We are young

No one can tell us we're wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
Love is a battlefield

And if you're not careful, you'll shoot your eye out!!!


I. Am. Speechless.

This pattern showed up on Ravelry today.

In 2008.
Not 1988.

I guess the struggling economy has really hit the big knitting design houses hard.


New Baby

Here's a photo.

I tried to get one next to my chihuahua, but they don't stay still together. His name is "Tractor" (thanks, Jackson) and he's a lab/Amer. Bulldog mix.
He's about 6 or 7 weeks but he's already as big as Nicky, the chihuahua. He's a big clutz, but he's a sweetie. He evacuated to my house during the storm and ended up staying.


As Promised

Here's a few photos of the Gustav damage.

Our back yard. These trees were all the same height. Four of them snapped.

Our pool and neighbor's fence.

This was scary as hell, but someone took an Ambien. (You know who you are!)

Our playhouse with no roof.

Overall, we made out just fine.

Can you believe

there are still subdivisions and towns in Louisiana that are still without power? The media isn't covering it either. I guess if it's not New Orleans, it's not news.


So, I'm back.

Big thanks to my sister, Disa, who let us come visit while we were out of power. I've got some hurricane photos to put up here when I get a second. I've also got pics of the sock blanks I dyed right before the storm and the socks I'm knitting from one of the blanks.
