Sunshine And Frost

The sun is over the tops of the trees, the frost is sparkling on the grass. It dipped into the mid 20’s during the night and is up to 28° at 8:30 am. We are back to more seasonable January weather with a chance of light rain in the morning and possible rain/snow mix laterContinue reading “Sunshine And Frost”

Keeping Busy

I’ve got my winding station set up to wind off two skeins of yarn. Brad needs new socks and it takes more than one skein of fingering yarn for his size 13 feet so I am doing contrasting toes, heels and cuffs. I’ll use the lighter yarn on the swift for the main color andContinue reading “Keeping Busy”

Another Frosty Morning

The sun is almost over the tops of the trees, the ground is covered with frost and it’s 33° this morning. A perfect January morning. A perfect Saturday morning. Brad will start the coffee in a few minutes and we’ll have our breakfast and plan the day. He has a couple of errands in townContinue reading “Another Frosty Morning”

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…”

Happy Roc Day!

Today is Roc Day, or St. Distaff’s Day. Time to get back to work after the Christmas holiday. I still have an ounce to spin to finish the first bobbin of BFL/Tussah Silk I’ve been working on. I’ll stick to that for the time being instead of ‘sampling’ a different fiber for the fun ofContinue reading “Happy Roc Day!”

10th Day of Christmas

So, the double-thick, long scarf was sailing right along. Then I noticed that the partial skein of yarn I was using was going much further than I had imagined it would. In fact, it was beginning to look like a rather nice bag! So, I did a YO, K2 together to make the eyelet holesContinue reading “10th Day of Christmas”

2nd Day of Christmas

I pray your Christmas Eve and Christmas Day events were spent with family and friends, making memories and reliving those from the past, and remembering that Christ is the Reason for the Season. This 2nd Day of Christmas I am focusing on finishing a project and thanking God for the many blessings He has bestowedContinue reading “2nd Day of Christmas”

Friday!

The work week is winding down and the weekend is approaching. Trying to get any shopping done this week has been nuts! Traffic is unbelievable. How there aren’t a string of fatality wrecks is beyond me. One elderly woman parked next to Brad in the grocery store parking lot put her car in gear, trompedContinue reading “Friday!”

Monday Was Interesting
