DUDE!!!!! That article is fascinating. You are so accomplished!

Fascinating, fascinating stuff. Get to using that ice cream maker - I love mine....me, I can't say I'm not a fan of bright color socks.. :)

Kristy

What an interesting article! I'm glad you shared it :)

I hope your (bright!) Sockpal sock finishes up quickly. Then you can get back to some more comfortable muted colors :)

Jessie

What a great article! I have thought about being a librarian or archivist from time to time...maybe someday (need to pay off the first 2 masters degrees first!). It is encouraging to see how people end up in places (good places!) unexpectedly.

Lolly

Such a fabulous and informative article. I learned so much about you! I loved the little archivist tips of no staples and rubberbands! I was just removing staples this morning... I would love to hear more about your grad research - it sounds fascinating.
Maybe a dinnertime conversation?

Love the pic of Little Sir eating the ice cream - after my own heart. ...and perhaps we are related? I have the same clumbsy gene...

Kim U

That's a great article - thanks for sharing the link!

Hey, Nova! Thanks so much for rockin' me out! I have to play catch-up and say I LOVE your Trellis! It's on the Fricklet to-knit list, but first I have to see if I survive the blankie pressure. Argh!

I had mint chip ice cream with hot fudge and Oreos today. What could I do? The Biscuit begged for ice cream, and I'm a good mom that way.

Marie

Congrats on the article! :)
Love that ice cream shot with Little Sir (have I said before how adorable he is?). Now I really want to a scoop myself. You can make ice cream without the ice cream maker too. It's a fun activity with kids and super easy. Place ziplock bag with cream, milk, sugar, flavor, and food-coloring inside another bag containing rock salt and ice, shake 5-10 minutes and voila, delicious ice cream. :)
Do share where you find the good Vietnamese food. New Haven has quite a dearth of options and I always end up craving a bowl of pho when I'm there...
Hope the socks grow on you! I think they look very pretty. :) You can always hang up the singles as decorative items too.

love the ice cream shot, too. great article. it's always cool to hear about people's family and their passions. i also saved all my husband's letters from when we were dating (4 summers apart and then two years). anyway, thanks for sharing. off to entertain my little man before bed time.

tiennie

Great article! Congrats! You are pretty rockin'! And mmm...pho...yum...you know I grew up with it. I think we have a high pho content in our blood in my family!

Ashley

Awww! [Shoves Nova] You rock! You! Not me! Or maybe we can all rock together.

Now I have to go think up more rockers, since you took all mine :)

But first I must say that you need absolutely no explanation for a deep love for Vietnamese. When I go back to Texas, I have two demands: breakfast tacos for breakfast, and banh mi from my fave Vietnamese place for all the other meals.

Karma

Hey, that was fun! I, too, have an ice cream maker that doesn't get used much. We used it quite a bit for the first couple of years that we got it, and made some amazing recipes (blueberry beaujolais sorbet was a favorite). We were just saying that we should bring it out and make some summer treats.

Mmm, pho. Oh, and I have lots of scars on my legs, too. :)

diana

Dang girl, you're the one who rocks! Shut up! No, you are! And it's all documented in that fab article.

And I also have a serious addiction to both ice cream and Vietnamese food. I need goi cuon on a pretty regular basis.

Opal

I loved that article! It was great to get to know you better. What a fascinating life you've lived and how great is it that they featured you knitting so much in it.

I adore Vietnamese food too. Luckily the island here is simply splattered with Vietnamese restaurants. Did you get a chance to sample the ones here?

Rachel

Wow, what a fantastic article about you! I have to ask, when you file it, what tags will you apply to it? Nova, publicity, superstardom?

Brenda

What a great article! You have so many talents.

You must try your ice cream maker! My M makes sorbets all summer in ours and they are fabulous. The ice creams are nothing to sneeze at either.

Excellent post all around, Nova!

Politely smack me if I missed it...

but that pink/orange/etc combo sock... Is that my "new love gained through your blog" Shibui yarn in Roppongi? Or am I so crazy-into that colourway that I'm imagining it? (I have fan girl issues with certain animes, and one of my fave girls is Akemi Roppongi, so that colourway is on my must-have-asap-yarn list.)

And, as much as I appreciate the Single Sock Liberation Group (considering I could only hope for membership in the "Partially done, but to be completed one day" Liberation Group), I partially urge a second yellow Pom so I can see more gorgeous pictures. It's selfish, I know :)

Dude! You're awesome :)
And now I know Little Sir's first name. I really love it, because that's my maiden name.

Nora

Oooooohhh, Nova! Thank you!!

I'm so sorry for not seeing this sooner (you posted around the time my brother was in hospital).

Fascinating article and meme - you are truly accomplished.
