How quickly the month of NOROvember came and went. I had grand plans for this month to knit a whole sweater (baby sweater, but still). Alas and alack, I didn’t even cast on for this until yesterday, the last of NOROvember.

shark infested waters

Posted by Nanc

Okay, the title may be a bit of a stumper at first, but it boils down to the fact that despite all the glorious knitting that was going on in last night’s episode, ‘Gilmore Girls’ has jumped the shark. Actually, it did this a while ago (imho), but others disagree.

But I digress. This is not what I came here to talk about. (Obviously I still watch the show in the dear hope that the writers find their sweet spot again. They haven’t.) Last night’s episode featured knitting. A LOT of knitting! And that’s what I’m gonna blather on about…

The wise and oft silly Stalker Angie came up with a knitters version of East Bound and Down from Smokey & The Bandit.

Couldn’t you just imagine that convoy? Kid ‘N Ewe ‘n knitters, too – here we come!

This past month has sped by at an alarming rate, and I’m not quite sure if I remember all of it. There were ups and downs, changes in logic, and gob-smacked moments. I’m happy for where we have ended up, but- my-lands -that was a bumpy ride!

So we finish up SOCKtoBEER with not a single completed pair of socks, and look forward to better knitting juju in NOROvember.

I stalked the Stalker

Posted by Nanc

sorry for the delay posting this…

What a great event! I met gaggles of fun Texan knitters, ate and drank merrily, and enriched my yarn stash! Hoo-boy-howdy, that Stalker Angie can throw some good shindig, y’all.

Schtufph

Posted by Nanc

There is a lot of schtufph (I can never just say “stuff”, sorry but I find it more amusing this way) going on here. My weekends and nights are starting to fill up with plans and projects quicker than I can shake a niddy-noddy at. (Just ’cause I like saying that, too.)

I’m sure that we will share more information as it becomes not so terrifying and gob-smacking and in the ‘read more’ section I talk about all the knit-related schtufph going on, but real quick-like I wanted to let y’all know that we, the Bonez and myself (plus cats), have bought a house. (Not that the cats were involved in the house-hunting, decision making, or funding, but – you know.) Crazy, no?!

Anyhoo, continue on for knit schtufph.

I love this time of year. The weather doesn’t really cool down much here so I don’t get that “crisp fall air” thing, but I do enjoy the back-to-school vibe and I do luv me some Halloweeniness. Add some beers and an Oompa band (i.e., Oktoberfest) to the mix, and I’m yours.

But this? This here is Socktoberfest ’round these parts (i.e., my home and circle of friends). Thanks to Lolly, you can be treated to read about my sock knittin’ history.

Exciting, no?

Ketchup

Posted by Nanc

Wha? What kind of title is “ketchup” anyhoo? Well, let me blather on explain.

Despite the lack of blogging and sharing knits as they happen, I’ve been keeping quiet. Really, nothing crazy or fancy or whatnot is going on. Simply, I haven’t been knit-blogging about much. But I have been knitting. Some.

In an effort to show what I have knit and finished (FOs – hurrah!), what I’m currently knitting, and what I hope/plan/want to be knitting soon – I decided to post this here catch-up post.

The term “catch-up” reminds me of “catsup” which is another term for “ketchup.” And my joking dad used to play with the words and intermingle them. (I’m sure he also referred to “catch-up” as “catsup” during my youth, the silly man that he is.)

So read on for my catsup catch-up.
