One of my favorite knitting sites is knitty. Cool knitting patterns, plus helpful articles.
And speaking of Miniature Wild Kingdom (see post below), this morning in the garage I almost stepped on a Black Widow that was scurrying across the floor. I had bare feet, too. I sprayed the creature to death with bug spray. I actually feel guilty about this, but, especially with little kids around, I can't risk having dangerous creepy crawlies around the house!

I just learned that a new knitting store has opened in Turlock. Hooray! Previously, the nearest one was over 45 minutes away. I haven't visited it yet. It's called Purls & Girls, at 117 W. Main St. I already have plenty of yarn to last me a while, but something tells me I'll be visiting soon.

Allison asked two good questions this week. My second favorite was, "Mom, when you were a kid, did they have beds?" No, we slept on mastodon furs on the cave ground. My very favorite was, "How come they didn't make us with tails?" I don't know who "they" are, but this is a very good question. I told her it was because our pants wouldn't fit right, but she wasn't satisfied with that answer.

I enjoy other people's craft-related blogs, so I thought I'd start one myself. I plan to occasionally post about my works-in-progress and ideas. I might also include links to fun shopping sites I find. I promise not to bore you with endless details about my personal life, but, in case you care...I'm a Criminal Justice professor in California, I have 2 daughters (Allison and Quinn, currently ages almost-5 and 19 months), my pets are Ruthie the Saint Bernard and Furgie the cat, and my husband is an accountant.
