Sometimes, I can be a little bit superstitious. Heading into my job search, and a semester that I knew was going to be pretty rough, I somehow ended up with a rule that everytime it was reasonably possible, I HAD to eat a fortune cookie. I don’t know how many this ended up being, but [...]
I had this crazy idea a few weeks ago. That since I’d finished an epic sweater project last semester, I could finish an epic sweater project this semester. Because my unpaid intership, job, classes and job search weren’t enough. Anyway, over Thanksgiving break, I bought the yarn and then on the eve of the new [...]

There is this point in the seasons when the trees are bare (or mostly bare) and you can see deep into the wood. The light strikes across the tress and branches, casting a dark lacey web of shadows across the forest floor and on any visitors walking the paths. I was intrigued by these shadows [...]
Goodness, this one was a long time coming. But I finally finished. Finally. lets call this photo “artsy” instead of blurry. This project was an ever constant source of both pride and annoyance in my life for a long 4 months. When I started her, I joked about how she was this hot affair that [...]

I finished a blanket!! And, by my deadline! (check out Rav for the details.) I’d been wanting to make Babette (which is crocheted! ::gasp::) because it’s just so freaking pretty – and it reminded me of the blankets that my grandma used to have – but with a nice new modern feel. But I knew [...]
What a great weekend! We’re a great, crazy bunch. Here’s how the weekend went: I at some raspberries. Fresh from my mom’s bushes. We played some cards and ate some yummy food. We hung around and waited for the fireworks to start (there were 30 of us watching the fireworks). They were bright. And a [...]
