This is one of those posts where I don’t have enough content to write about any one thing, so I’m going to include a whole lot of little stuff for your reading pleasure:

Really, I Do Knit!
Contrary to the recent jewelry-heavy content of this blog, I have been knitting, and in fact have been rather obsessed with it of late.  Over the last week or so, I designed and knit a cute little cardigan for myself using baby alpaca.  It’s not 100% finished yet, but here is a preview:

Knit Designer “Interview”
Jen at PieKnits recently held a contest in celebration of the three year anniversary of her blog.  As part of the contest, readers answered questions then asked Jen a question.  Here are some of her answers.  It’s not an interview per se, but still an interesting glimpse into the life of a great knit designer

Loves Me, Loves Me Not Ring
You didn’t think I’d be able to do an entire blog post with no jewelry in it, did you (I’m not counting the Cable Needle Ring)?  Of course not.  That’s why I present to you this ring:

Loves Me Not Ring

I didn’t make it, but I thought it was clever and deserved a mention.
