My facial expression looks like I sucked up several thousand pixie sticks. In fact, I just worked out the pixi elf hat.

As I mentioned earlier, I am in desperate desire to own an elfin’ pixi hat, made by yours truly and complete with a baby pom affixed atop. While I hadn’t even really conceived of the design much in my last post, after working on it a bit more and making some much needed tweaks, IContinue reading “My facial expression looks like I sucked up several thousand pixie sticks.

A woman of many…elfish fisherman…caps? If it doesn’t work out, at least I’ll have something to stuff dead fish in for eatage?

Today, I’ve decided to take to getting a good chunk of Charlotte Bronte’s novel “Shirley” (another gift from Mum for Christmas) completed, peruse the latest issue of Knit.1 (which has loads of patterns I want to try–including an homage to trends and bloggers in the knitting world, featuring the deliciousness of chunky knitwear….told you!), andContinue reading “A woman of many…elfish fisherman…caps?

Last night downtown along Canal Street, not a soul was out…Sully’s Tap was basically empty, and The Fours was quietContinue reading “Woody Allen says if you travel faster than the speed of light, you’d lose your hat.

“…whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off–then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.”

Last night, I decided to cast-on a really quick earflap cabled hat with tails, because, why not? Clearly, I have knitting A.D.D. though in my defense, the baby sweater I’m working on is so close to being done, I feel I am at liberty to flex my knitting muslce in adult-wares. That being said, IContinue reading ““…whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off–then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.””
