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”

Prepping For Wednesday

The plastic shelves are in the dining room waiting for a new home. The portable table is cleared, folded up, and waiting for Brad to take it to the shop for a shooting bench. The only thing I need to do is move the stuff sitting near the window out of the way so theContinue reading “Prepping For Wednesday”

Fall Is Back

It was in the mid 60’s this morning when we got up and I immediately opened both doors and the living room window. It’s wonderful. It’ll be in the mid 80’s later but we’ll enjoy this while we can. No A/C running. Just the sound of crows calling to one another and the neighbor’s dogContinue reading “Fall Is Back”

Socks And More Socks

I finally finished this pair of socks around 4 pm today and put them in to soak in Eucalan. They are drying on the sock blockers and will be added to my sock drawer when dry. This is the pair I’m enjoying working on at the moment, another skein of Jo Dee’s BFL/Nylon base andContinue reading “Socks And More Socks”

Feeling Sad

Had a good day with Joshua yesterday. When we were coming out to the house after running an errand in town I thought there were a lot of brown needles on the last remaining pine tree but the sun was in my eyes and it was difficult to tell much. When I was returning homeContinue reading “Feeling Sad”

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”

There Went Another Month!

I got busy yesterday and totally forgot to post something. Today will be even busier because I got behind with the laundry while doing other things around the house, including some excavations in my studio. It’s amazing what I find lurking in those big plastic bins now that everything is all sorted and organized…and IContinue reading “There Went Another Month!”

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”

What A Difference A Day Makes!

The sun is shining, beautiful fluffy clouds in the sky, grass is greening up, won’t be much longer and we won’t need the A/C running. We were up much earlier than usual this morning. Brad had early appointments and I had errands to run. Got my hair cut. Picked up a couple of things atContinue reading “What A Difference A Day Makes!”
