Hi! It’s me! Is that you?

Hey there! I moved. :0)

I live in the Chicago area now. I am now full time at Apple and enjoying it immensely. My apartment is adorable, my new couch is comfy and my clothes are all still in boxes and suitcases! But my refrigerator works (it didn’t at first) and I knitted about 5 rounds on Green Gable.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must go pay rent! 😉

So Mom and I headed off to find her some warm winter Jammies–because MI has figured out that it’s November so it’s about 40 degrees now during the day instead of 70. (Hmm, no comment.) Well we hit Macy’s where we found flannel jammie bottoms…and also:

Really? People go around sticking “skin-friendly adhesive” butterflies to their bits instead of wearing panties? REALLY???

Oh how I wish to knit.

Lisa wants a replica of the hat the dog ate. I want Rogue. And Green Gable. And another hat.

But I’m learning to play the guitar. And I start belly dance lessons next week. And I’m so easily overwhelmed lately. Why is it that some people can do many many things, all at once, and well…while others of us think, “But I have to practice the guitar, and I have cramps, and I need to lose 15 lbs by next week, and I can’t even think of what pattern I used for that silly hat–stupid dog!” ???

Sigh. Hello.

Entertain Yourself…

Kno knew knitting.

I was going to start a new blog, because I think this is about to become more “gluten-free” than “knitting.” But I think I’ll just not make a new blog.


I’m in the midst of being officially diagnosed with celiac disease. I got blood drawn last week and was informed today that the results are ” normal” however, I’m not convinced…well let’s not *begin* this journey with cynicism. So next step is a scope for a biopsy of my small intestine. So now I’m waiting for a referral to the gut doctor.

Oh, btw, Green Gable is still sitting around waiting to be finished.

And I’m an Apple employee now. And I am an iPhone owner. In fact, I wrote this entry from my phone with the iPhone WordPress application. Pretty cool, eh?

I had to rip the Green Gable.

TOO BIG is…unacceptable, because I really really really like the way this drapes and I really really really want to wear it. So I frogged. Back to an inch shorter on the sleeves and it’s much better.

Gosh, I’m growing. Ha!

I’ve also decided that I will complete the lovely Green Gable before I even think about (not true…already been thinking, but it’s about where to find the other sweater I want to complete not about what new pattern to start…) knittingon another item.

This is called self-discipline my friends. I hate it. Blech, icky.

Ummm…peace out, yo.

I’m knit-ting! (you know, say it like in “What About Bob”…)

I found Green Gable. I have knit about 5 inches in 24 hrs and I am damn proud of myself. I also tried it on and it seems maybe like it sorta might be a bit…large. Oh well. It’s partly cotton so maybe when I throw it in the wash (which I fully intend to do) it’ll tighten up a bit. Right?

Also, 2 Rockstars seems to cheer me right up. And also staying on the Advil schedule helps…
