Rrrrripppp!

Posted by Nanc

A couple of my projects just aren’t cutting it. Frogging these WIPs is a step in owning my knitting, showing it who’s boss, and being The Knitter. (Like the Decider, but less… stupid.)

This post is a continuation of my WIP and SIP articles, where I’m regaining control over my knitting.

SIPs

Posted by Nanc

Yeah, that’s right. SIPs – Socks In Progress! Makes sense, no?

You read the first part of my WIP story here. Now you can read about that special category which becomes an obsession with most knitters – Socks!

You must WIP it!

Yes, I am mis-using and abusing this wonderful song so that I can tell you about my WIPs (works in progress). Learn how I will whip them into shape, shape ‘em up, knit straight, go forward, move ahead, try to detect it (dropped stitches?), it’s not too late, to whip my WIPs!

Whip it good.

The relay “baton” (actually a box) came and went earlier this week. I don’t know how ahead we are, but I’m sure that I beat my own record.

What relay was this? Did Nanc actually run* somewhere?

Nope. It was the Dish Rag Tag that I participated in, and woo-boy – this is gonna be a close heat!

* Did you see a bear? Yeah, neither did I.

No knits here

Posted by Nanc

Not that anyone is coming around much since the posts have dried up. (Apparently there’s been either a mental or a time drought in these parts.)

But just in case you did stop by for a looksie or this was picked up in your Bloglines, know that there is no knitting content. None. Only a lackluster explanation of why there is no knitting. (Sad, really. Pathetic.)

Read on only if you want to pity me or listen to my whimpers (or, more likely, kick me in the caboose and tell me to get real).

Did I leave you to believe my next post would be anytime soon? Ha!

Between Ravelry and Flickr, taking pictures of my stash (to upload to Ravelry via Flickr), somewhat surprise guests, and not a lot of wanna-be-on-the-computer time, this doesn’t make for very frequent posts. In fact, if it weren’t for my boredom at werk, I doubt that I’d be posting at all.

Pre-MSWF

Posted by Nanc

Chris (aka Skittermagoo) and I flew up to MD a little early. I have family to visit and she had friends.

The following is our account of those days.

And I’m back!

Posted by Nanc

Okay, so I was back from Maryland earlier this week. But give me a break. I’ve been busy, I’ve been sick, and I’m celebrating a birthday. Things are getting crazy around here.

And, oh! The things I have to show you…

Leaving: jet plane

Posted by Nanc

No need for me to paste the lyrics here, right? Y’all know this song well enough without my prodding.
