October Morning

I managed to get this shot of the sun starting to peek through the trees along the creek before 8 am this morning. The days are getting shorter and I’m looking forward to getting off of daylight saving time. I wish we could just ditch the twice yearly time change altogether and stop the “springContinue reading “October Morning”

Afternoon Coffee Break

Since yesterday was rather stressful I fixed myself a nice cup of coffee in the French press before I got settled in my recliner. It really did the trick and was very easy and quick to prepare. Coffee prepared this way has a richer taste than coffee made in the drip maker. The rest ofContinue reading “Afternoon Coffee Break”

Interesting Development

I’m very definitely NOT going to use ribbing on the top of these socks. I gave it a try and it’s too difficult to see the purl stitches. So. Plain stocking stitch it is for the feet on this pair and I’ll just knit a couple of inches of ribbing at the top of theContinue reading “Interesting Development”

It’s Here! The Rain Arrived!

We did not awaken to storms during the night but it has been overcast since we got up this morning. The sky was pretty dark around 9 am and there was some thunder. Now it’s just raining nice and slow and soaking in to the very dry ground. I’ll work on the Alpine Blossom socksContinue reading “It’s Here! The Rain Arrived!”

Busy Day, Unhappy Pup

Turns out Hava did have a small fracture of her jaw as well as it being dis-located. All is well, except she is frustrated with the muzzle that has to stay on for two weeks. She dislikes having to drink her dinner and she’s tired and frustrated. Brad was busy today, up at 6:00 am,Continue reading “Busy Day, Unhappy Pup”

Blocked, Ready to Wear

This is a very comfy shawl, soft and drapes well. It’s great to have a finished project out of my own hand-spun yarn. I’m ready for cooler fall weather when it arrives. In the meantime, it’s 100° outside and 73° in the house. We have the ceiling fans running so it’s nice and cool inside.Continue reading “Blocked, Ready to Wear”

Finished Ludlow Shawl

I cast off the shawl yesterday evening and put it in to soak this afternoon. It is currently pinned out on the blocking mats drying on the bed under the ceiling fan . I’ll get another photo after it’s dry. Pinned out it is 72″ across the top edge and 33″ deep from the topContinue reading “Finished Ludlow Shawl”

Busy, Productive Day

Today is Flag Day so this photo seemed appropriate. It’s also President Trump’s 76’th birthday. I had a really good appointment with Jared today. I went in with my neck hurting and not in a particularly good mood and an hour later I left feeling the way I did after our first session. My neckContinue reading “Busy, Productive Day”

Making Progress On A Couple of Fronts

I finished these last night and I’m wearing them today. Very comfy. It’s a bit humid here today so we are enjoying being indoors with the A/C running. I haven’t looked to see if we have more rain coming our way or not but it wouldn’t surprise me. I went in for PT on myContinue reading “Making Progress On A Couple of Fronts”
