Scarf #5 -Nakoda’s SS

Posted by Nanc

I’ve put needles to yarn and have knitting up a Secret Santa gift for my mom to give to my nephew, Nakoda. (It’s after the holidays, so I’m okay letting the secret out.)

And then I get gushy about the craft. Damn me for being a girl!

Pink Eyelash Scarf

Posted by Nanc

This is the year of fluffy and foofoo girlie scarves. Bright splashes of color and the oh-so-many variations of eyelash and novelty yarns! It’s really quite exciting, you see.

So I had to do my part. The scarf isn’t so bright or foofoo-ey, but it does have the bright pink eyelash yarn going for it and it’s definitely girlie.

Super Stripeded Scarf

Posted by Matty

For his 6th birthday, I knitted up a striped hat for my nephew Liam.

I realized that a matching scarf would be great, but didn’t have the time to do this before his birthday. So this is his belated birthday scarf.

Scarf #1

Posted by Matty

I’ve started knitting and have actually produced something not too horrid. Bucky will be more than happy to wear it in the Gryffindor common room. Admit it, you’re intrigued now. At least take a look.

Tit for [uterine] tat

Catchy title, eh?

In trade for our healthy baby, my OB received a knitted uterus. Fair trade, right?

Happy 5th Birthday!

Posted by Matty

Nanc and I noticed that a notable birthday recently passed. In March of 2003, toysaregoodfood.com was born.

We picked the name ‘toysaregoodfood’ after hours of domain searching. Once you realize that every single possible domain name that you want has been taken, you get a little punch-drunk. It still doesn’t make any sense, but I can’t imagine the name being anything else.

What would you do?

Posted by Nanc

Perhaps I should save this for the “Weird Things About Me” meme, but I’ve just got to say it: I’m stubborn. Horribly stubborn. Like ‘I will always win at chicken’ stubborn, despite what injuries may occur. (I don’t believe that I’m stubborn when it comes to reasoning and logic and getting along with other people, but I could be fooling myself.)

I am stubborn about my knitting, though. Like when I should just stop knitting and look for a solution or a different project, instead I carry on.

My sweet Melody

Posted by Nanc

It’s good to have friends. Even better to have knit friends that will help you cut your knitting with sharp, pointy scissors.

So this is the story of my Melody shawl…

The last of 2006

Posted by Nanc

Wow – the new year came and went pretty darn quick. And it’s not like I’ve been super busy with parties like some of you. We’ve just… been. You know, here and there, existing — doing “stuff.”

But I did finally get to washing and blocking my final FOs from last year.
