I know, I know. Horrible. It’s like I fell off the face of the earth (again)!!!

Life and work are kicking my ass, to be honest. Everything’s ok, it’s just been CRAZY!

I think about you all the time though…really. :)

To catch you up, I thought I’d give you a list of things I’ve learned in the last two weeks:

  1. My mom has lost like 20lbs already!!! YAY MOM!
  2. Lisa Marie Presley is literally the size of a Skipper doll wearing Uggs. Seriously. The tiniest thing ever.
  3. One minute you can be TOTALLY healthy and the NEXT you can have a sore throat and chills Like, outta NOWHERE! {{sniff}}
  4. There actually IS a limit to how long someone can sit on the couch and watch TV. It’s surprisingly not that long.
  5. Eventually, the box of Thin Mints will be empty. So sad. :(


  6. One can wear 3″, pointy pink heels for 18 continuous hours and remain blister free! Note I didn’t say pain free. These ain’t no MIRACLE shoes, hun.
  7. Felicity warned Elaina before she went back to the future!! So she went to Duke instead of Columbia and DIDN’T die! We won’t get into how that plot detour makes NO SENSE, we will just accept it, and move on.
  8. Dancing on bars is actually a f*#kload of fun!

    I was going to justify this by telling you I got PAID to do it, but that just sounds. so. Wrong!

  9. Tyler Hilton’s bassist likes my pink vinyl 80’s jacket! I got it at Wet Seal. He didn’t know what Wet Seal was, so I had to tell him it’s a teen store in the mall. SHUT UP! I know I’m not a teen. Thanks.
  10. Apartments don’t clean themselves. It’s crazy, I know, but they don’t.
  11. Spring in DC apparently means endless days of clouds and rain. JOY!
  12. Despite your misguided trust, if the bamboo needles are visible to the cat, she WILL atempt to EAT them. If you are dumb like me, you will forget this, and need to shell out for a new set of US3 DPNS.

Sadly, there has been *very* little knitting. I spent a lot of time attempting to make tini-tiny preemie knits, but apparently, I forgot that gauge is actually a THING. If you know a woman who could use a hat for her baby while it’s STILL IN THE WOMB, let me know…I think I have one the right size.

There *has* been progress on two knit fronts though:

The bittersweet socks LIVE! They’ve actually become Bittersweet sockLETTES, with questionable picot cuffs (yeah, I don’t know. The jury is still out on the picots. More pics later)

And for Claudia:


Um, YAY! Right? Except I haven’t TOUCHED Rogue since then, and it’s been *over* a week! :( Like I said…life and work are kickin’ my ASS. There’s potentially some really exciting stuff on the horizon though, so I’ll be sure to keep you updated. :)

    Hi, Hayley! Hi, Lara! Thanks for the update in your life. I’m not going to comment about being paid to dance while half-clothed. Nope, not gonna say nuttin’…BTW, great news on your Mom! Wow!

    And yeah, DC weather sux lately. I’m hoping lots of pretty flowers spring up to make this dreariness at least sort of worth it.

    I hope you feel better soon. =)
