Friday Stitch Day update: October 8, 2021

Well, somewhere in the back of my mind I thought I had a couple half-done knitting projects kicking around somewhere and sure enough, they turned up when I was cleaning out the spare room closet. First up, “Interlude” by Shannon Dunbabin, knit with some handspun yarn I bought a...

Monday Memorabilia/Collections: Lemax Web of Terror

I swore I was done with getting more Lemax this year, really I did. Then I thought maybe I’d go pick up The Witching Hour, since it was on for 30% off and I do have a bit of a witch theme going with my acquisitions and current holdings....

The Zamo the Destroyer Show #219

New episode of The Zamo the Destroyer Show: It’s been a frustrating week for Zamo. Not only has Technical Support Monkey refused to get an extended cable TV package, but she’s refusing to hand over the green alpaca wool scarf she’s knitting to add to Iggy’s collection of blankies....

Poem: Fringe

neon fringe old lace hip scarf reminding me of my old hip life city lights dance class shimmying on the same stage where punk bands spat and dead friends once played neon green, deep cyan buried in this beige town...

Flannels and quilts and it’s time to dye my hair again

Well, the rains have come off and on this week, and monsoon season seems to be upon us for the next few months. Still, there’s been some sun, and the garden seems to be enjoying the change. Inside the house, October means the start of flannel sheet season, which...

Friday Stitch Day update: October 1, 2021

Happy October! It’s the season of wanting warm knits. You’d think that would mean I would have touched my Wassailing Stole as mentioned in last week’s post, but you’d be wrong. Instead, I tried my hand at knitting socks. Well, one sock. Well, I got a couple inches in...

Monday Memorabilia/Collections: Lemax Eerie-Go-Round

One of my favorite Lemax pieces, and not just because I got it for a steal. Originally priced at $130 CDN as a 2018 Michael’s exclusive piece, I was in the checkout line at the Uptown Michael’s in Victoria a couple days after Halloween in 2018 with a bunch...

The Zamo the Destroyer Show #218

New episode of The Zamo the Destroyer Show: Zamo’s had it up to here with Technical Support Monkey’s continual refusal to own a TV, especially when Ig finds out her brother has a huge one sitting around unused, and Iggy invokes Squeaky Simon in the quest to make Technical...

Poem: Fertilizer

The old hag sneers as she passes my garden a witch too early for Samhain “Goddamn idiot, why the fuck did you do this?” as she misses the riot of roses vivid coneflowers frigid iced lavender hibiscus the last of the fuschia blazing stars spring is a flurry of...

Equinox, escape plans, and a reflush in the garden

Another week gone by. Happy fall! The equinox was this week and I was kinda thinking how I need to be a little bit better at being more in tune with nature. Not in a granola and Greenpeace sorta way, but in a paying attention sorta way. Generally, the...
