You Can’t Escape Math

by erin on August 28, 2015

Man, has it been a week!   My oldest went back to school (can I get an AMEN?) and my daughter will go back in the next couple of weeks.  I’ve been up on campus myself, studying Chemistry (which is code for “being stunned by Chemistry”) and actually enjoying myself in my Pre-Calculus Algebra class […]


Oscar Wilde Was Right

by erin on August 21, 2015

I’m sitting here on the couch, second cup of coffee being slowly ingested, savoring the feeling of not having to be anywhere or do anything right now.  I had my first week at school this week, my first time being a full-time student in…oh…15 years, and it went well so far, but getting the blog […]

Hi everybody, hope your summer is shaping up to be one of the best ever!  I have been having ever so much fun knitting since my summer class ended.  School starts back up in just a couple of weeks (gulp) and I feel like a kid that showed up at Chuck E Cheese’s about 3o […]

The knitting has been fierce over here.  The holiday homestretch looms before me, and, finished or not, the race is over.     I successfully combined fitness and knitting this week.  It threw off my speed, but nonetheless, I was brimming with virtue at exercising AND knitting without breaking the treadmill.   I finished the […]


Snow is Good For Some Things

by erin on February 4, 2014

I am from St. Louis, in case I’ve never told you all before.  Being from the Midwest, we see snow from time to time up there, and we can whip up a darn good thunderstorm.  There can be several weather events per season.  And still, if you take all those events and roll them up […]


I Love Katie

by erin on March 5, 2013

It’s been an odd week around here.  I hurt my back (doing a Zumba workout…latin beats and I do not get along, apparently) and am still not 100%, and I’ve been monogamous to a hand knit through all that time.  I know!  I’m stunned, too.   My Katie pullover is approaching done.  I really like […]


Tripping Along

by erin on February 12, 2013

Does anyone remember the movie “A Fish Called Wanda”?  Remember Otto and Ken and how well they got along?  Otto, played brilliantly by Kevin Cline, eggs on and torments a stuttering Ken (played by Michael Palin) until finally Ken has had enough.  He is going after Otto, and Otto utters a famous line. “It’s K-k-k-Ken […]


Pay the Piper

by erin on January 8, 2013

I don’t know about you all out there in the real world, but I still feel like I am coming down off of the crazy train that is the holidays.  At this point, it’s more of a holidaze than anything else.   I had this big shindig I went to on New Year’s Eve.  It […]


Happy New Year!

by erin on January 2, 2013

2013.  Can you believe that?  On one hand, yes, another year, onward, go go go.  On the other hand, where the heck are the flying cars we were supposed to be getting around in by now?  I’m a little surprised we haven’t colonized Mars yet.   However, there is always and forever (I hope) the […]


It Is On Like Donkey Kong

by erin on November 27, 2012

Did you all have a nice Thanksgiving?   We sure did.  My son wanted to help in the kitchen, which was very cute and hilarious, since the chopped onions nearby were really bothering him.  He came up with a solution.   Those are my husband’s chemistry lab goggles.  He dug them out of wherever they […]


Quantum Knitting 101

by erin on November 20, 2012

Have you heard of the theory of Infinite Halves?   Maybe it’s not a theory.  Maybe it’s a Law?  Or an Idea?  Or maybe I’m hungry.  I don’t know.   Anyhoo.  This Infinite Halves…concept…is pretty neat to grasp.  You have a distance.  You halve the distance.  Now you have half the distance.  You with me […]


Some Knits, Some News, And A Story

by erin on September 18, 2012

Well, I jumped the gun last week.  But now, now NOW (!)  the website is up and running.  I think they got Gandalf in there for a day or two to finish up the work (and it is a B-E-A-Utiful site, dontcha think?).  I now put on my fancy clothes when I sit down to […]


Process Versus Product

by erin on October 18, 2011

Where do you fall?  Are you about the destination, or the journey?  I have come to the conclusion, slowly, that I am a process knitter.  That is the only sane and logical way I can explain how many dang unfinished objects I have.  I must reeeeealllly like the process.  Yup.  That’s why I have so […]



by erin on August 30, 2011

This past week has been rather interesting, hasn’t it?  I mean, for one, we have the horrible, devastating earthquake that shook up the entire eastern seaboard.  Did you see some of the pictures of the aftermath?  It’s pretty gruesome stuff.  Please, let’s have a moment of silence. Ok, moving on now. Oh yeah, then there […]
