Feels Like Monday

Monday morning. Seems like I should be doing something, but there is a lack of motivation it seems. Then again, sleeping in the recliner isn’t conducive to the best night’s sleep but it still beats sleeping in an uncomfortable bed. Sigh. I want my new bed. We both do.

Yesterday I made the mistake of sorting through my fingering yarn stash. Specifically, my Fishknit’s stash where I came across one of Jo Dee’s 600 yd skeins of kettle dyed yarn on her Isabella base: 80/20 Merino/Silk. That’s when I remembered why I ordered a couple of her larger skeins. I wanted to knit a Hitchhiker scarf. I almost remembered the pattern without looking at the directions. Anyway, despite having multiple pairs of socks, a dishcloth and a hat on the needles I cast on for the scarf. I managed to knit eleven ‘teeth’ before I bedtime. This will make a good portable knitting project and I might just take it with me to the coffee shop one morning.

Also, in honor of beginning the scarf, which will be a lengthy, no pun intended, project for some time to come I decided to begin reading my Kindle copy of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy which is what the name of the scarf alludes to and is something I’ve always meant to read anyway. It has something to do with the number 42 (the scarf has 42 points or ‘teeth’).

The beginning of the book has some bio on the author. I was pleased to discover he wrote episodes for Doctor Who during the 4th Doctor’s iteration. Love Tom Baker!

The sun is up and I heard Brad stirring at the other end of the house a minute ago. I’m doing well with my detox and should skip the coffee. But. Yeah. Right. I’ve got that morning thing going on…

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
