Winter issues

This is a mint birthday cake covered with turtles and graham cracker sand. It's a nice reminder to treat all projects as though you were 5.

My knitting has been "wearing grouchy pants" as they say around here. Nothing is working out well.

Have you looked over the new Vogue Knitting? I liked Meg Swansen's article on guernsey knitting, but I didn't see anything I'd like to knit. I peeked over at the coming issue of Interweave Knits and felt the same.

This late October warm weather has me thinking the house needs a makeover before we settle in to Fall. I've got this crazy DIY chip on my shoulder.

You've been doing a lot! You've got a new CHAIR. You've got PIT BOWLS.

My knittingpants are grouchy too. Can't settle down to a project. Want to be sewing, I think. xo Kay

I've been impressed by your cakes since I found your blog, and this one is no exception! It's fantastic!!!

You need to give your knitting a running, waving, jumping and shouting try. (Cf. "The Kite" -- Frog and Toad)
