Weekend trip to Port Townsend

My friends and I took the long weekend as a chance to get out of the city. We headed to Port Townsend, about two hours away including a decent ferry ride. The weather on Saturday was beautiful, though cold. It was an amazing two days, filled with good food, adorable shops, antique malls, fireball spices … Continue reading

Fancy nail attempt

Fancy nail attempt

I tried to make fancy nail art that’s all the rage these days, but I don’t think I did very well! I tried though, blue and red for the election! I used the little ball end of a pin to make the dots, next time I might try something different, or I might try to … Continue reading

William H. Foege talk at UW

William H. Foege talk at UW

Today I got to attend a talk by William Foege, “Bill” as we were told to call him, at my university. If you do not know who he is check out the wikipedia article on him. It was a really inspiring talk, he seemed really personable, not at all like Richard Dawkins. Don’t get me … Continue reading

Physically I understand the idea of how the fabric is made, with one continuous loop instead of many (as in knitting). I … Continue reading

So I know it’s not quite Headband Season yet

So I know it’s not quite Headband Season yet

But I couldn’t help myself. I knit this last night as I caught up on some American television (clearly taken advantage of my last few days in Italy). This is an extremely easy pattern, and my first on circular needles woo! Get ready for some webcam fashion shoot! I’ll try and take high quality photos … Continue reading

About not having a camera…
