Keeping the Punk in Pointe Shoes Punk Rock And Purl

I love Cons and wear them all the time. I’ve been going through at least a pair a year since I wasn’t “double digits”. My Dad’s fault, he wore “Army Go Fasters” as a kid and I thought he looked like the coolest ever, smiles. I found this article that is perfect for combining Cool and Geek in all its forms. Knitted Cons! This Etsy artist makes them to order as well. I think I want a pair with Thunderbird One on them…

Her Etsy shop is here: PrettySneaky  and if you click the Tardis sneaker below, it’ll take you to the article. There are some great pictures of other geeky sneaks that she’s made.


Yarn Bomb Friday

I think we’ll cancel Yarn Bomb Friday this week.

The profoundly disturbing trend of attacking people without any facts or cordial discourse and the complete and utter disregard for how much effort I put in here, including the due diligence and observance of RL and internet courtesies, has raised its ugly head here and so…

I’m taking a wee break today.

Have a lovely weekend all, K

Why Yes, There HAS Been A Little Knitting

Sometimes, it’s just a question of “What ball will I drop this week?”

The workplace move went very well, all things considered. Moving technology is always dicey but, we’re up and more or less running with the expected glitches.

The unexpected fallout is the low-level stress. I’m back to commuting after a year, not far but it’s time and expense that has been added into the mix. That coupled with my desk is configured the opposite to what it was. Sounds silly but I keep reaching for things that aren’t where my hands think they should be!

That being the case, I’m a little discombobulated when I get home at night and if I can manage soup  and maybe to write a line or knit a row, I’m calling that for a win. Forget reading, I’m much too scattered!

Revontuli is my “no brainer” knit and so is getting all of the loves. The colour shifts are fully in play now and so I can forgive the Kauni for not being the nicest yarn I’ve ever worked with.

Even on the wrong side, you can see how subtly the colours blend. This I do love and I’m looking forward to finishing up this last section :)

I’m Gonna Knit Myself A Cocoon!

This is what I woke to this AM!

Yes, I live in Canada but seriously?! Seriously… This is just ridiculous and I’ve seen a few winters and springs!

Not even a hint of warmer temperatures to date. There has always been at least that, in my memory.

A freak April snow dusting makes for good conversation. THIS nonsense makes me envy the hibernating bears!
