About Those Wooden Knitting Needles…

They are pretty, aren’t they? I kept thinking about what I mentioned before about knitting a scarf using a pair of these. I cast on with a fine yarn in a cotton/acrylic blend that had a bit of a mohair look to it. Yeah. That isn’t going to work. My hands don’t like the yarnContinue reading “About Those Wooden Knitting Needles…”

Finally! A Finished Project!

I cast these off the needle last night. The ends are woven in, they’ve been soaked in Eucalan and are on the sock blockers overnight. I plan on wearing them tomorrow. I’ve got quite a bit of ribbing to do on the purple socks… …and I’ve put these socks on separate needles to finish theContinue reading “Finally! A Finished Project!”

Another Glorious Day

It’s 10 am and the sky is overcast. We are waiting for the rain to begin, so yes! It’s another glorious day! The drought is finally over and we have the potential for several inches of rain over the next few days. Neither Brad nor I have any errands to run, nothing to do awayContinue reading “Another Glorious Day”

Friday!

Here we are at the end of the week. Brad greeted me this morning with, “It’s Friday! Every day is Friday. Except Sunday.

Most people don’t know how funny my husband canContinue reading “Friday!”

No Desk Yet, But…

The guys from Furniture Row arrived yesterday evening and we were expecting this table as well as the desk that will serve as my sewing table. No. Desk. It hasn’t arrived yet. Odd that no one at the store thought to let us know that all we were getting was the small table. I’m aContinue reading “No Desk Yet, But…”

Lost Track of Time

I’ve been doing a little more work in my studio the past several days, can’t believe it’s been three days since I wrote something. I reversed the position of the yarn winder and the swift so it’s more comfortable when I wind off a skein of yarn. I can leave the table out away fromContinue reading “Lost Track of Time”

Back to Spring Weather

We’ve had a front come through our area in NE Texas and it’s now in the 60’s after being in the 90’s for over a week. Tonight it will be in the mid 50’s. Now that’s more like it! Brad made a run to town for take away from Frank & Lola’s Bohemian Tacos. TheirContinue reading “Back to Spring Weather”

Still Feels Like Summer

It’s almost 8 pm, 85° with barely a breath of air moving outside this evening. I know our weather is unpredictable at the best of times, but this is almost the middle of May and it’s a bit warm for this time of the year. Thank goodness we upgraded our A/C two years ago. Well,Continue reading “Still Feels Like Summer”
