November! How Did That Happen?

So, November 1st just snuck right by me yesterday. Here we are with a brand new month and absolutely gorgeous weather to boot! It’s a few minutes after noon on Wednesday, the sun is shining, a lovely breeze is blowing through the house from the open living room window and the front door. It’s 67°Continue reading “November!

Almost There

I’m hoping to finish this pair of socks today. It’s slow going with a lace pattern but very much worth it. I’ve got Pluto TV on Roku streaming while I knit. Midsomer Murders is on. Brad is at the shop tinkering and testing ammo. It’s a gorgeous day here in our little corner of Texas.Continue reading “Almost There”

Ready To Weave

I wound the weft off of the larger shuttle and onto the smaller one and I’m ready to work on this band now. It’s a good size loom to use while sitting in the recliner. I woke up all congested and achy this morning but began feeling better as the day wore on, just aContinue reading “Ready To Weave”

A Day Of Rest

Brad is at church with the grandchildren. I’m still battling allergies but I think I’m beginning to win the battle and stay out of the doctor’s office this time. House is clean and tidy, beds made, etc. I’m having yogurt, an English muffin and French press coffee. The Cat Turd mugs are in the dishwasherContinue reading “A Day Of Rest”

Tried An Experiment

I’ve had this little knitting rake for maybe fifteen years or so. I picked it up on sale at Hobby Lobby and just never got around to figuring it out. I found a how-to video online and got the thing set up and had several inches knitted, took it out and tried a different yarn.Continue reading “Tried An Experiment”

Success!

I picked Joshua up at 10 am and we headed to town, talked to the young man at Game Stop and after checking with Audrey it was decided that they just needed a new game console. I was able to replace the Playstation 4 console at the farm with a Playstation 4 Pro, a refurbishedContinue reading “Success!”

Restarting A UFO

In the fiber world a UFO is an Un Finished Object, or unfinished project. This cowl has been on the needle since last Fall when I started it, set it aside, and promptly forgot about it. It’s an easy knit, ninety stitches on a 16″ size 4 needle using fingering yarn. It’s a perfect projectContinue reading “Restarting A UFO”

Digging the Staycation

I was right about the allergy thing. Woke up congested and feeling like crud. Didn’t get lunch prepared but Brad brought me the chopped steak plate from Culver’s on his way home from the farm after church. He had a hamburger and their delicious fries. We’ll probably have left-over tuna casserole for dinner later thisContinue reading “Digging the Staycation”

Time For A Staycation

We’ve both had about all the housecleaning we, or our sinuses, can stand for the time being so we’re taking the weekend off from Fall Cleaning. I’m on the verge of a sinus/ear infection and taking homeopathics to keep it under control. Time to enjoy what we’ve accomplished around the house and get some restContinue reading “Time For A Staycation”

Just A Little More Summer Heat

I’m enjoying working on my current Ludlow Shawl. This BFL/Nylon yarn is easy to knit and has good stitch definition. Probably should have bought more of this yarn when I had the chance. It’s back up to 95° today. We missed most of the rain that passed through here but at least the grass isContinue reading “Just A Little More Summer Heat”
