Inches 14.5 – 32.5

Posted by Nanc

Phew. Another week (plus some) has gone by and where am I on my progress? Well, I’ve made an effort. That’s gotta count for somethin’, eh?

more inches – yay!
less yarn (trust me)








And for those Walter fans out there, here’s a couple treats for you: like father, like son and kittens + yarn = trouble. Enjoy!

Is it SOX enough for you?

Posted by Nanc

Interweb friends, I have a confession to make. It seems that I have been holding out on showing you sock fotos. I know – shocking! I guess I was waiting for one thing or another before I did the whole photo shoot and post. But wait no more!

This is a foto-laden post, so be careful. I wouldn’t want anyone to hurt themselves.

Inches 1 – 14.5

Posted by Nanc

knitted
to knit

This is the start of… the decline of civilization? … my madness? … a project that ends in tears and disapointment? … nope, my holiday knitting! (Boy, do I hope that all those other guesses are just plain wrong.)

To encourage myself (’cause man – I’ve got some tight deadlines) and to show y’all that I AM knitting, I will be posting my progress each week. This will be shown using two images, section knitted and yarn remaining, and the progress amount (inches referred to in the title). I’m playing by the KISS rules.

And just so you know… The yarn is KnitPicks Wool of the Andes on size US#7 needles (straight). 60 stitches/garter stitch (knit ‘em all!).

I don’t believe the recipient much/ever reads our site, but if he does he can only be happy by what he sees. And if you know who and what I’m talking about, please don’t alert him to this or reading our blog. Thanks.

Well actually, there was a whole lotta fun, but the afternoon was about little things. Namely, wee tiny sweaters!

You guessed it, another PEZ update. Yes, the PEZ has been flowing from the heavens like hard, plastic manna. Let’s dive in, so we can see the exciting kitten photo at the end of the article!

More Meme fun!

Posted by Nanc

Another fun (and quick!) meme is making it’s way around the interverse. You simply Google “[your name] needs”, and post the top 10 posts that match. So here we go…

  1. Nancy needs to make sure that her Mom understands Nancy’s message. (ha – this came from another knitblogger’s meme of the same!)
  2. Nancy needs witness accounts of rental activity to take action.
  3. You calculated that Nancy needs 2097 kilocalories per day. (Eep?!)
  4. Nancy needs help choosing snake to breed.
  5. Nancy needs catechists. (EEP!)
  6. Nancy needs to “bite the bullet” and let her boss know that…
  7. Nancy needs the exact same hardware in both machines for the servers to work together.
  8. I was just informed Nancy needs a copy of our DLs.
  9. Nancy needs a family who can not only provide her with the nurturing, care and security, but also firm and consistent boundaries.
  10. It’s too dark, however, Nancy needs a flashlight.

Funny note… when I did this a day or two ago without the quote marks, I pulled up a lot of Nancy Drew mysteries. Now go check yourselves out!

My tootsies

Posted by Nanc

I may be cutting this close, but this is for Mim. A pix of my feet.

Warning to those that don’t like nakeed feet (Rachel): There are bare toes in the next bit! Don’t go any further, even for pix of Walter. Here… here’s a Walter pic to appease you. Now you have no reason to go on. Everyone else, click to see Walter attacking my toes.

Cats + kitten =

Posted by Nanc

How are our three, mature (not older, gotta watch that!) cats taking the invasion of Sir Walter? What do they think of his ultra cuteness and high energy? I believe that Dil’s look captures not just the moment, but their collective philosophy of new kitten.
