December Is Here

It’s the third day of December. For some reason it doesn’t seem like December to me but I’ll probably catch up with the rest of the world at some point. It’s a gorgeous morning here. The sun will be cresting the top of the trees soon and it will be partly cloudy and in theContinue reading “December Is Here”

Another Cowl And A Load Of Hay

I decided to cast on for another Fishknits Yarn mini skein cowl. I love these colors! I’ve got ninety stitches on a 16″ size 4 needle and nothing but plain knitting. I splice the ends of the yarn when I come to them, I knotted them together when winding them into one cake of yarn.Continue reading “Another Cowl And A Load Of Hay”

Bipolar Texas Weather

It was in the low 70’s yesterday, sunny and windy. By bedtime it was 42° and the wind was rattling the window screens. The low was 32° last night and it will stay below 50° today. This will be a great day to stay indoors and work on my knitting. I need to do somethingContinue reading “Bipolar Texas Weather”

The odor in the pair of brushed denim slacks that fit me the best has not washed out and I ended up putting them out in the garage because I was getting a headache from the smell. I’ve emailed Lands End about returning twoContinue reading “Online Purchases”

Enjoying My Lap Throw

I finished this the first week of August and had planned to add a lace edging but decided to go ahead and give it a soak in Eucalan, lay it out to dry and see what I thought about it. I didn’t stretch it much, just pinned it out to keep it’s shape as itContinue reading “Enjoying My Lap Throw”

Done. Done. And Done.

Done! The beginning is now grafted to the ending and it needs a soak in Eucalan and then blocked. I have another set of six mini skeins for another cowl and I might as well cast that on to keep on hand for simple, on-the-go knitting. I enjoyed this project a lot and look forwardContinue reading “Done. Done. And Done.”

So Close

What is it about the last inch or so of a project that seems to take longer than you think it will? Sigh. I will finish this thing. This afternoon. No more interruptions. What an interesting day it’s been and it’s not even 1 pm yet! First of all Fancy Nancy Pelosi is not seekingContinue reading “So Close”

What a Gorgeous Day!

It was 37° this morning at 8 am, mostly clear and no breeze to speak of. It’s 53° now and it’s nearly 5 pm. Clear, no breeze. Thankfully. Brad and I just took a stroll out to the road to see if our trash got picked up. It did. They forgot it earlier and IContinue reading “What a Gorgeous Day!”
