Need a little Christmas

Well.  I meant to post again before now but you know how it goes.  One thing and then another and then everything REALLY goes to pot and you just never, never know.  Life turns on a dime. I meant to tell you all that my birthday wasn’t all that awful....

In defense of the Christmas movie remake

This afternoon while trying to kill some time before dinner, we watched “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”  You know, the one starring Jim Carrey as the Grinch.  This movie gets a lot of flack from people who believe it’s a sacrilege against the original Grinch cartoon.  I don’t think this...

Cashmere: A Love Story

Once upon a time, there was a man and his wife.  Neither of them had anything made of cashmere, that most delicious of fibers.  And they were okay with this.  They figured those cotton and/or acrylic sweaters were just fine.  What difference does one little (lush) (and luxurious) (and completely...

In which I blink and December is nearly over

What the heck happened?  Didn’t we just have my birthday?  What happened to Christmas?  All I remember is posting about my birthday and then I spent the next two weeks with knitting needles permanently attached to my fingers (moreso than usual even, if that’s possible).  Next thing I know, we’re...

I need a yarn diet

I have a weakness.  It’s yarn. I can’t resist pretty yarn.  And while I have bins upon bins upon piles of yarn threatening to overtake us all, I keep seeking out more more more MOAR. It is luscious, soft and full of promise.  What will it become?  Fingerless mitts?  A...

Who says it’s too early for Christmas?

Like most bloggers, I can’t bear to leave up a depressing post like that for too long.  But on the other hand, we had a weekend in there and it was, as usual, busy busy go go go and, well, blogging kinda falls behind on the weekend. But now it’s...
