Wallace and Gromit

I am a Wallace and Gromit fan from way back.

A Close Shave is pretty much my favorite, perhaps for obvious reasons. (I am entirely too excited about Shaun the Sheep's new movie.)

So, when a package of Wallace and Gromit postcards arrived on the "take it, we're free" table at work, I snatched them up and decorated my cube with them.

One-Year Birthday!

Sock Architecture was one year old yesterday, so I did what any proud parent would do. I made gluten-free brownies and took a picture of my book with one. As you do. 

The pirate cupcake topper had to stand in for the candle because, well, fire.

If you don't have it yet and want it, where's the best place to get it? You can buy it from my publisher (they're clearing out their warehouse, so it's 30% off at the moment), online from at least two places, and I'll happily sell you a signed copy from my Etsy store. A digital-only version is available on Ravelry, too.

Already have the book, but want more sock-knitting time with me? I  have a Craftsy class, and if you use this link, you can get it for 50% off.

Here's to many more years of happy sock knitting for all!

Whipped Shea Butter

I made whipped Shea butter! I kind of love it. The only thing I would do differently, next time, is use a smaller bowl. It was a little hard to whip it really well in my too-big bowl.

Biking to Downtown

I still can't believe that this is so close to my house, and all I have to do is take the bike path!

Math4Knitters: Episode 32

Download/Listen to Episode 32.

The original show notes for this show.

This is when it's going to get a bit strange. I re-ran old shows, then, attached to new shows. So, you might want to keep your finger on the "skip ahead" button, if you have one.
