In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods. 1. On Sears hair dryer: “Do not use while sleeping”. (Gee, that’s the only time I have to work on my hair) 2. On a bag of Fritos: “You could be winner! [...]


I’m seriously worried about our sanity. Robert and I placed an order with (an online company that delivers groceries to your home) and then promptly got into the truck and drove 4 blocks to our local grocer to pick up some dinner. How kooky is that? You’d think we’d be sensible enough to pick [...]


I just updated what Robert and I term our “Internet Start Page.” This is the first page we see when we open up a browser. It contains links we use frequently, such as our personal homepages, the homepages for our employers, local business info, metro bus schedules, etc. I’m pleased with how it turned out: [...]

    • February Lady Sweater 14 March 2014

      02/17/13 - It’s definitely on the small side. I would prefer more ease, but think I’ll get some wear out of this sweater. I also think it may have been a poor choice in project for me. While it was fun to knit, the FO reminds me a little too much of maternity wear. On to BIGGER and BETTER things :)

      02/12/13 - Unblocked, this fits my 8 yo daughter. Hopefully, it will fit me post-blocking. I don’t usually use this many pins when blocking a sweater, but I’m determined to boss my knitting around.

      If it fits me, when done, then that’s ok. If it fits my daughter when done, that’s ok too. If it fits neither of us, I’m going to be a sad little knitter.

      When I cast on for this, I was concerned about the super wash yarn growing a lot during the blocking process. Now that I’ve mostly knit the sweater, I’m concerned that it’s not going to grow enough. It’s rather small.
