Smitten by the Mitten …

[Translate] Recently I was at work on the show Fringe and like always I was knitting. Its great work being an extra as they feed you and you don’t always have to work very hard – not always. Anyways, I was working on Mike’s sweater (Adam’s Rib) when Lyndsay let an ooooh escape from her lips. It turns out she loved the color of the yarn. I have to say that I really liked it as well and was originally making the sweater for myself, but if you’ve read the post you know the story. If you haven’t. click […]


Remembering Mom …

[Translate] Today is a bit of a sad day for me. 10 years ago, while I was in Australia vacationing, my mom passed away from a stroke. She had gotten up in the middle of the night for a glass of water and simply collapsed on the floor. The doctors say she had died before she hit the floor and felt no pain. My mom was a very special lady to a lot of people, but especially to me. Whenever I am knitting people always ask me if my mom taught me how. Unfortunately, it is on of the […]


Model needed …

[Translate] Wow, what a day! Apparently this blog hit 60 views today! And I almost finished a sweater to boot! So my day on set ended up being a little busier than I had wanted – I hate actually having to work – and I didn’t get to finish the sweater. Its close though.

I had a couple […]


Oops …

[Translate] This is a very short posting to let you know that I will be posting to this blog later today. I have been VERY busy with VERY long days at work the past three days and didn’t have time to write a post for today. I’m hoping to get home at a decent hour today though as I was up at 5 to start work at 6:30! I’m also hoping to get the sweater finished so I can post it later! Thanks for reading so far and I hope you realize it inspires me to continue writing. Your […]


A lesson learned …

[Translate] You’d think that after making several sweaters I’d have learned the lesson of writing everything down! Well, I haven’t – hadn’t – yet. Let’s hope I have now. Remember the sweater that I said I would probably have finished very soon and have pictures up for? The one from the swatch on the post two days ago? Well, yesterday I was on set and not very busy at all. I have gotten very creative in terms of ways of getting knitting done between takes including taking it on set and just hiding it out of camera sight between […]
