Clear, Sunny Weekend

It’s been a gorgeous day, sunny and breezy, 70° all afternoon. The day started out very foggy but by 10 am it was clear and sunny. It’s almost 6:30 pm now and we still have the house open enjoying the fresh air and sounds from a perfect spring day.

We decided to dip into our frozen dinner stash in the deep freeze for dinner tonight and very shortly we’ll have roast turkey, dressing, green beans and carrots to eat. I’ve been working on the Ludlow Shawl this afternoon after a sluggish morning of not getting much accomplished. I’ve just started the fourth stripe section and put it aside for a break until after dinner.

Brad had a men’s breakfast group at church bright and early this morning and before he left he got a pot of coffee started so all I had to do was turn on the pot. Boy, that was nice! I have the best househusband ever. He’s spent a good bit of time down at his shop/man cave today and surprised me with new clothes line strung on the clothesline poles. It will be so nice to be able to hang sheets and bedding on the line to dry as well as his shirts. Knits and towels will still go in the dryer but nothing can beat freshly dried sheets and blankets smelling of fresh air and sunshine.

I’ve got more hand-spun yarn to add to my inventory. This began as two full skeins but I used part of one skein in my hand-spun Ludlow Shawl. I need to weigh this and add it to the inventory. It’s a wool/bamboo blend.

This is a second yarn, another two skeins total, that I used in the hand-spun Ludlow Shawl from fiber I bought from Bethanne.

And this is the third yarn I used in the hand-spun Ludlow Shawl, more from Bethanne.

I don’t have a project chosen for this gorgeous stuff yet, more yarn spun from Bethanne’s fiber.


Dinner was good, Brad’s in the shower, time to get back to my knitting. Have a blessed Saturday night, ya’ll.

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.
