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”

Like I Need More Cotton Yarn…

This is my coned cotton stash…about two dozen cones on one shelf. This is the last order of cotton yarn I got in the mail from Walmart a couple of weeks ago. So, I really hadn’t planned on ordering more yarn. And, yet I did. It’s at the post office and I can pick itContinue reading “Like I Need More Cotton Yarn…”

More Hand Towels

The first hand towel that I knitted with this pattern was white with yellow and blue stripes. I decided to do a yellow one and blue one as well and add them to the dishcloths for Audrey’s kitchen. I have plenty of yarn to work with. These towels will have the fold-over tab and aContinue reading “More Hand Towels”

Smart Phones and Old Friends

I haven’t had a call on my cell phone in weeks then out of the blue it rang while I was sorting laundry. I didn’t recognize the number but it was a knitting buddy I haven’t talked to in ages. She also has a new ‘smart’ phone and a new number. We used to meetContinue reading “Smart Phones and Old Friends”

Home Improvements

This door leading to the utility room and one of the bedroom doors wouldn’t shut properly and were catching at the top of the jamb. Son-in-law David came out with the two older boys and took care of the problem for us. While they were here they loaded the riding mower and a cart thatContinue reading “Home Improvements”

It’s Friday!

I just got through watching Bongino’s podcast for today and I love it when Joe does his best 1960’s game show host voice with “Iiiiit’s Friiiiiiidaaaaay!” Somehow, Thursday eluded me and I totally forgot to post something. Gosh. Blink and you miss something. I really enjoyed the podcast today and I’m eagerly awaiting the releaseContinue reading “It’s Friday!”

Wind, Allergies, And A Change of Plans

I am so done with wind. There is so much stuff in the air and Brad and I both are battling allergies. Our M.D. called in a steroid dose pack for each of us to stop this crud before it gets worse. Neither of us can afford to end up with respiratory infections. I hadContinue reading “Wind, Allergies, And A Change of Plans”

Trying To Be Creative

I’ve been thinking about my next project. I really need a summer weight cardigan. I’ve been through these bins several times and I don’t have enough of the same, or suitable yarn, for the project. I’ve thought about trying to combine different yarns but nothing really works for me so far and I’m determined NOTContinue reading “Trying To Be Creative”

Love A Thunderstorm

I’ve always loved thunderstorms, even as a little girl. We’ve got quite a nice storm going on in our area right now. We need the rain. Audrey needs to get the hay field fertilized…talk about sticker shock…and this rain will help get the ground ready for it. She’s keeping the cattle off of the pasturesContinue reading “Love A Thunderstorm”
