Jon Barr Memory

My friend Jonathan Barr tragically passed away in 2004, but some fun memories of him remain alive. The following event took place in the summer of 2000 at the cabin of my friend Adam Snell's grandparents in Texas. Adam is the dude in the red hat and Jon is the dude in the white shirt.
Warning: the conversation you're about to read is extremely nerdy!I took some artistic license with this but I am accurately quoting Jon and he did slam into a tree after swinging away from it.
Here's to you Jon!

Will Knit for Cash

As some of you (our loyal blog readers) know, I (Katie) have been knitting scarves for a little over two years now. They are nothing fancy, just a simple rib stitch in a single color, about six feet long and a few inches wide. As soon as I started knitting them, the first thing everyone wanted to know was whether I had thought about selling them. Well, I’ve made excuses long enough. I have finally taken the plunge and opened an online “etsy” shop. For those of you who are wondering what that means, “etsy” (pronounced “et-C”) is kind of like the folksy, craft fair version of ebay. All items bought and sold on the site must be handmade or have vintage appeal. I have no idea whether I’ll sell anything but I thought it was worth a shot. You can find my shop at I have also started a separate blog for those of you interested in pictures and descriptions of some of the fun things I make, you can find that at So spread the word. There are scarves to be bought!

Just to see who's paying attention, the FIRST person to make a comment on Katie's new BLOG gets a FREE SCARF!
