MST3K Explosion

Well, that escalated quickly. The ever-delightful Chris Hardwick, one of my nerd heroes, wore the MST3K sweater that I knit for him. He wore it while moderating the Doctor Who panel at SDCC. Then, because Chris is a Nice Guy, he’s been name dropping me like a madman on every social media platform. Thanks, Chris! 💜 Some of you probably… Read more →

Year in Numbers: 2016

This is my 100th post, which I think is truly fitting for my year in numbers. 63 books read (This is 20 more than 2015 and I feel really good about that. Last year I fell in love with the fantasy works of Daniel José Older, Maureen Johnson, and Maggie Stiefvater.) 69 knitting projects completed (A bunch of those were… Read more →

Just the Worst

Remember that one time I apologized because it had been a whole month since I had posted? Ahahahaha-haha-ha, yeah. I really am just the worst at keeping up with this. I create a schedule and then I don’t stick with it. I’m easily distracted or good at making excuses or super busy and none of those are actually good reasons… Read more →

WIP Wednesday: Ice Wine Cowl

I just finished watching Jessica Jones all the way through for the third time–twice with my husband and once with my knitting group. It doesn’t lose anything in the rewatch or the rerewatch. If you haven’t watched yet, you really should. So in the spirit of adulting better this year, I’m planning ahead…for my Halloween costume. (Adulting, I’m doing it… Read more →

Her bundle includes a copy of Knits for Nerds, my Can’t Stop the Signal pattern, a skein of StevenBe Nerd Alert SMASH by Three Irish Girls, a Geronimo project… Read more →

Year in Numbers: 2015

43 books read (Totally pwned last year; my favorite reading moments involved discovering Rainbow Rowell and Patrick Rothfuss.) 56 knitting projects completed! (I actually listed everything as I finished it in the back of my planner instead of trying to remember it all at the end of the year. Very handy. Favorite FOs: the upcoming Rory Cowl, headed to TNNA… Read more →

MCU Love

I (obviously) have a huge case of MCUphilia–I am super in love with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I made a special trip out of the house today (admittedly unusual on a day off; I really love being at home) to pick up a copy of Avengers: Age of Ultron on its release date. This is how I function. I know… Read more →

FO Friday: Twins Sweater

One of my favorite memories from my teen years involves going to a Twins game with one of my oldest friends and her family, sitting in the very back of her family’s station wagon, the two of us waving at cars as we moved through traffic toward the Metrodome. I don’t remember the score of the game or who won… Read more →
