I’ve been working on the Slack Tide scarf using Concentric by HiKoo. It was one of the Big Stitch projects. I’m having a love/hate relationship with this young because it’s a bit of a pain to deal with.


Hello. Is anyone there?

I’m not a faithful blogger. Lately, I’m not particularly faithful about any sort of public posting stuff. Life is sort of busy. Or I haven’t had much to say. This blog is called “This Boring Life” for a reason. I go to work. I go home. I go to work. I go home. I go to work. I go home. Yep.

Meg the dog has discovered the birds at the BIG PET STORE. She wants to play or eat the birds. I’m not sure which and we aren’t going to find out. ¬†She’s too stinking cute.


I finished knitting a thing. Now I need to knit a thing 2 so I have a pair.


And that’s all for now.

I haven’t blogged regularly in a long time. Not sure that I have anything all that important to say, but sometimes I have more than I can put on Twitter or Facebook. Don’t get me wrong. Much more goes unsaid, except in my private handwritten journal. But maybe someone out there has some small interest in my ramblings. I’ll write for you.

We’re going to try out a 3-D printer for a little while here at work. I’m excited and intimidated in equal measure. Some days my brain feels like it’s going to spill over with new information. I’m not even sure if the old information is staying put! Seriously. How do you know if your forgetting stuff if you can’t remember what you’re forgetting? It’s a paradox.

Want to see a picture of some recent knitting? Here you go. This is a project from one of my PostStitch boxes. I really like that subscription box. It’s one of the best fiber subscription ones I’ve received. I’ve tried others that have been disappointing in all sorts of ways – from nasty yarn to projects that I’d never want to knit. We’re talking stuff that belonged on Regretsy. The PostStitch folks do a great job with the boxes. The yarn is top notch. The patterns are lovely. And you get everything else you need in the box. My only complaint is from the lazy side of my self who has to wind the yarn before I can get started. And that’s all on me. Because it’s really all about my laziness. So, it’s not a complaint about the box. Anyway, here’s the picture:


I’m not so sure about the applied cable border. But I do like learning something new. The yarn has been such a squishy soft pleasure to work with. Still…I’m anxious to get this one done so I can get started on the February box project. (I’m trying to work through some of my backlog of boxes.)

That’s about it for today. Looking forward to some warmer temperatures around here this weekend. Although I’m one of those weirdos who doesn’t mind winter too much.
