Does anyone have a nut allergy? Specifically, walnuts?

If you are one of those people who is opposed to nuts in cookies due to texture, do not fear! These are ground up very fine. And I say this as one of those people opposed to nuts in baked goods, in general.

(In knitting-related matters, I'm on take three of this f*#@ing bobbi bear.)

Cookie Swap Updates

1.) The number of the counting is currently 7:
  • Josh and I are combined for 1 (this way we don't have to fight over kitchen space)
  • Amber
  • Jen
  • Tiffany
  • Abbey
  • Jane
  • Will

2.) 7 dozen cookies is a lot. So we decided yesterday that a half-dozen cookies per person is plenty. If you want to bring more, awesome.

3.) This is supposed to be fun, not stressful. If you aren't up to making cookies, store-bought are fine. Or don't bring anything, just enjoy the cookies that others bring. Or bring a toy for Dunn Bros. Toys for Tots box.

This is important -- Cookies!

Last week we officially declared that _next week_ Wednesday, December 21st will be the First Annual Fight Knit Club Cookie Swap.

The rules are simple: Bring a dozen cookies for each participant. In return _you_ will get a dozen cookies for each participant!

Since we'll need to know how many cookies to bake, please post a comment here (or email me so I can post here, or show up this Wednesday and let us know) that you are in.

You can't stack your family

So this is the video I was talking about last week and meant to post:

Nicholas and I have been quoting it all the time.

I'm too full from lunch to think of a clever title

See you tonight!

Here's some lulz in the meantime:

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

I'm so behind...

let's catch up over knitting this evening!

On second thought: Amber's comment below reminded me that people are likely to be travelling or prepping for festivities tomorrow. I'm happy knitting at home if other can't make it. Let me know (here, or via text) if you still want to try to hang out though.

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

I'm wearing my new mittens tonight. I think you all saw them in progress, but now they're clean and have the ends sewn in.

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

I need sweater advice

I might as well get it from you people.

See you tonight!

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

I knitting and I know it.

See you tonight!

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Oh, hey there

I'll be there are the usual ballet-delayed time. I hope to not be alone.

Some Kind of Knitting

I'm knitting another pair of pink socks. They'll look awesome with all my blue sweaters.

Who wants to come to my intervention tonight? :)

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Miss you guys!

See you tonight?

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

I know i'll be late, and that makes me a

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

So we knit, yes? Standard caveat is that I'll be 30ish minutes late, but I'll definitely be there because my ballet class is right there.

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Ballet before knitting

I'm going to be 15-30 minutes late for knitting, but I'll see you there?

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

I'm wearing pretty socks

Knitting tonight. Yes?

Blue Ribbon Winners

Did anyone else enter knitting at the State Fair? Jane, Jumi, and I did. I want to make sure I see your pretties.

Let's talk at knitting tonight. Who's joining me?

Oh! This is for Abby:
Remember how last week we were talking about how to learn (to love) math? I forgot about khan academy. It's a collection of free online videos explaining math concepts. Some charter schools have been using it as a self-guided way for kids to learn math. I first hear about this on MPR. Anyway, I'm starting in the brain teasers section. There are a ton of interesting topics. I'm probably going to lose the next month of my life to this.

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

I'm back!

I'm back in the world of the living (i.e. the world of not planning a wedding). I'll see you tomorrow night?

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Pattern is a Four Letter Word

Remember how I ripped out 20 rows at the end of knitting last week? Yeah, there was an error in the pattern and no errata on the website it came from. However, there was errata on Ravelry.

I did not need to rip out those 20 rows.

Sigh. Console me tonight at knitting.

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Let's? Let's!

See you tonight?

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

What is this thing I'm typing in.

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Anyone Coming?

I can finally get back to my favorite Wednesday night activity. Is anyone else going to be there?

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

What day is it?

Last week, I remembered on Thursday that I forgot about knitting on Wednesday.

I plan to bring the newest member of our knitting club this evening. We should be there around 7 and we'll see how well he does.

Hopefully I can also employee Chele's Notary skills to sign off of Michael's birth certificate request. (:

See you there?

How are people feeling about knitting? I'm leaning towards hanging out in the northland for the evening, TBH.

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

There will be knitting

I hope to see someone else there.

Last week "creepy guy" who has the creepy mustache and the creepy talking to himself...tried to talk with me.

I at least have a legit excuse and pointed out that I was writing an email however he kept asking if "the other knitters were coming".

I just kept smiling and pointing at my phone.

This may also be a good time to coordinate some carpools to Jenn's place on Friday!

See you there!

Half of my classes this week got canceled, and next week is spring break.

Tonight I can knit and not even feel bad about it.

And, we might just have a special guest :)

ETA: the special guest is not George Michael. Or Michael Cera. Sorry.

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Yarn is a harsh mistress
