And what’s up with all the random bruising?

Standard

She lives.

She aches.

She doesn’t want to talk about it.

She’d much rather show you all the knitting she’s accomplished in the last week.

Finally finished Mom’s Birthday Thrum Mittens.


My first try at felting.
Love. It.

I just started knitting this Jaywalker sock with the beautiful Sweet Georgia yarn Connie gave me for Christmas.

About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, Snap.com commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets, TheOnion.com, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.

      • The motor is so amazing and smooth (I love the sound of those old motors) and all the stitches (a LOT for such an old machine) work and such. I need to raise the feed dogs, though, as they’re not pulling the fabric through enough (without me helping the fabric along a bit). I opened it up under the free-arm and cleaned it out and know how to tilt the feed dogs so they poke up a bit more. I just haven’t opened it up again to tilt the feed dogs yet.

      • It’s cool that you know a lot about the inner workings of your machine.

        I’m basically at the “It Works” vs. “It Doesn’t Work” stage of knowledge.

        I’m very happy it’s working out for you.

        PS. How are the crochet patterns coming?

  5. They’re called Thrum Mittens.

    You knit the thrum (unspun roving) right into the mitt, leaving the ends loose inside the mitten.

    This makes little heart-shaped lumps on the outside of the mitt and keeps your hands so extremely toasty on the inside.

    I’ve actually had a few orders to make them.
