So Much For A Winter Storm

We’ve had a little moisture, not much. It’s above freezing now. I guess most of the winter storm went north of us. All in all, it’s been a bit of a blah day here.

I’ve finished the last dishcloth and put it in the drawer with the rest of them. That’s eighteen new washcloths for the kitchen so I’m set for quite awhile, and finished with cotton yarn for now. I’ll get back to the pair of Malabrigo socks in my basket and try to finish them as soon as I can.

I’ve lost interest in social media for the time being, except for checking in with the knitting group on MeWe. I’m bored with politics and the doom and gloom coming out of the White House. There’s not much on television worth watching. However, we stumbled onto Robin Hood, Men in Tights this afternoon and enjoyed a few laughs. One thing about Mel Brooks: He pokes fun at everyone and everything, he plays no favorites.

I had planned on making tuna casserole for dinner, but I’m leaning more toward baked potatoes now. (The oven is preheating, potatoes are prepped.) And I just discovered a partially crocheted potholder in the basket under the table next to my recliner. Hm. Naw. I’m tired of cotton yarn for now and crocheting with worsted weight cotton is hard on my hands, so it’s back to the pair of socks…

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.
