Cathartic Ink

putting my own spin on things

Marsupials…

I started my felted tote last night.  I have the bottom done and about an inch and a half or two up the sides done.  Right now I’m working with Meema’s Marsupial tote from stitch and bitch, but I’m not sure if I’m going to work the handles the way they are in there.  We’ll read more

Yarn Binge.

This will be mostly photos.  I went to Soft Horizon Fibre today, and came home with less money and more yarn.  I also found some yarn at goodwill while I was picking up men’s workshirts to wear to field school.  This is an image off all the yarn I aquired today.: And close ups, from read more

Knitting Woes

I have frogged and restarted the sock I am working on 3 times now and I’m starting to think that its just not meant to be.  I’ll give it another shot, but if it won’t go, then I’m going to listen to it this time.  Today is my yarn quest, and I’m going to meet read more

My Favorite Thing in My Apartment.

My favorite thing in my apartment is this lamp: Derek’s grandmother bought it with S&H Greenstamps a few decades ago and I am its third owner.  I did buy the current shade for it.  I was told that I am allowed to paint it, or do whatever I want to do with it, but I read more

Big Doings At TheApartment of TheBon

As of October 1st TheApartment of TheBon will be the official residence of both TheBon and TheBoy. There is a LOT of work to be done between now and then, since this is semi-unexpected, but it’ll be worth it!

A group of people who miss the same imaginary place.

So, today was Garden State day.  The soundtrack was so amazing, the Remy Zero song was on of my favorites from Villa Elaine.  The movie was powerful, wonderful, sweet, and sour all at once.  Braff was amazing in a role that was different from J.D. on Scrubs.  Ian Holm was stunning, Natalie Portman reminded me read more

Ready for Fall

We had a little bit less than a week of fall weather here, now its back to the mid 80’s.  I’d like fall back please.  I liked the rain.  It didn’t rain all day for a single day, and most of the time it was just misty or drizzle.  So, I’d like it back please. read more

Bits and Pieces…Again

Last night’s staff meeting ended up only being an hour and a half long.  It went really well, the three new staff members are young, but I think with a little time they’ll fit into the staff really well.  We all get along really well, and that’s so nice.  The “big deal coming up” doesn’t read more

WIP After All.

I figured I’d take some photos of my scarf, wee as it is right now.  So here, for your viewing pleasure, is something I hope will use up the last of this infernal yarn.  Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but I’ve knitted 3 hats and this scarf from it now.  Anyway, without further read more

Almost

I almost had a WIP for you folks, but I frogged it.  My Cascade 220 lace scarf got scrapped in favor of Wendy’s Feather and Fan Scarf.  I’m not very far yet, because there was dinner to be made, and a movie to be watched.   Recently I’ve watched Alex and Emma, 50 First Dates, read more

A Move is in the Works.

I’ve been offered free hosting as a way around GoDaddy’s idiot customer service rep. So sometime before the sixth of September Cathartic Ink will be down for 24-48 hours to let my domain switch over to the new hosting.  I’ll let you (all three of you or so) know before hand, so that it’s not read more

They Like Me! They Really LIKE Me!

Shortly after I returned from the grocery store yesterday afternoon I got a call from work.  I kind of assumed someone had called in sick and they needed me to come in, but when I answered it my friend Kristie says to me “Megan and I have planned your Thursday night.” We have another midnight read more
