Making your first “cowl”

The term “cowl” is not so largely used as the term “infinity scarf.” When people ask me “Jasper, what are you making?” and I respond “a cowl” they wonder all the more. Have I missed all of the fashion forward memos? Ah well. If you want to know how to make your own cowl, follow these instructions! It’s so easy 🙂

Number one: begin casting-on 30 to 40 basic knit rows…

Shabby chic is no faux pa

That’s right, the title says it all. Actually, I’m not even sure what I am getting at with the title but when blogging I try and let my stream of conscious run wild. In this way, I do not feel obligate to edit before publishing. Congrats, you’re reading garbage!

find that old “shouldn’t” post

I do not own my own computer. When accessing the internet I use one of the three technologies: public library dell, iPhone or work PC. I used to write on a lil’ macbook but then I sold it so that I could pay one month’s rent back in 2010. Here’s my crazy Jewish family all enjoying our time playing with PhotoBooth on my old mac.

People say we seem “very Jewish.” and I am always positive that I do not know what they mean 😉 .

I can quote, nearly  the entire movie. It’s charming, so charming.

And, almost, I forgot that I took this photograph while visiting Boston in August this year. All of the photos that I took during my visit with the Ballhaussens are quietly perched in my “Picture” files and I’ve shared none with you. As if you’d have to ask — I can upload some and blog about them later. Who knows? You may even get a VLOG…… Read the rest of this page »

my toenail fell off!

Really, the title for this blog post was intended to drive unwilling readers to another, otherwise, boring blaze post! No soup for you 😉
