I Actually Have Been Knitting

I still haven't finished weaving in the ends on my sweater, so I still don't have any good pictures of that to show you, but I have been working on a few other projects. As I've mentioned before, my online knitting gro...more

Flowers

Being back at work has been easier than expected emotionally, but so much harder than expected in terms of time.  I spend most of my non-V time getting things ready for the next day, so I've had very little time to knit or blog this month.  So, you get a post about a blanket square.  One sad, solitary blanket square.  The good news?  It's a cute square that was a pleasure to make!...more

Stuff I've Been Reading

I'm reading Ten Years in the Tub, a collection of essays by Nick Hornby.  Hornby is one of my favorite authors; I've read all of his books and they're really funny.  This book is a collection of ten years of his "Stuff I've Been Reading" column for The Believer magazine.  It is what it sounds like, and it's great.  Really funny and relatable....more

Something New

I'm going back to work next month.  I'm hoping that my schedule will allow me to leave a bit earlier in the day than I used to, spend time with V, and then finish up my work for the day after she's gone to bed.  One serious issue with this plan was lugging my massive laptop back and forth every day.  So not appealing.  Imagine my excitement when I was notified yesterday that I could access firm materials on an iPad!  I ended up buying one today.  I think it will be a big help....more

Work in Progress

I'm sorry that I've been Sir Not Appearing in This Blog for the last few weeks.  Babies, teething, you know the drill.  I've been pretty limited in my crafting, too.  Most of my time has been spent on one of my two current big projects.  I had two skeins of Wollmeise "Pure" from a grab bag that I bought before it was called Wollmeise "Pure," one each in We're Different (sort of like outlet-store version) Nicole and Franz with Chicken Pox.  ...more

Mmm, Rice Pudding

The hardest part of giving up dairy has been the desserts.  I'm a big dessert person anyway, and the idea that I can't eat most of the ones I haven't made myself has just pushed things into overdrive.  Now I must have all the sweet things I can eat-- the milkier seeming, the better.  So of course I have been craving pudding.  I decided to make non-dairy rice pudding and it was so yummy!...more

Milking You for Ideas

The doctor thinks that Veronica might have a milk protein sensitivity (we're so trendy!), so I am cutting dairy out of my diet for the next few weeks to see if it helps normalize her tummy.  It's been almost a week and it's been okay so far, but I am a girl who loves her dairy, so I'd appreciate any suggestions, recipes, tips for allergy-friendly restaurant chains, or anything else that you can share with me.  I really hope it helps!...more
