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!”

Thunderstorms On The Way

It’s 65° and solid overcast this morning. The temperature will begin to drop soon and the storms will be rolling in. There’s been some fog in the area but it doesn’t seem to be very thick where we are. It’s a good day to stay home and knit. Brad is having breakfast with a gameContinue reading “Thunderstorms On The Way”

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”

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”

Another Birthday

Miss Rachel is 13 today. Holy cow! We have another teenager in the family! We’ll bring her out to spend the day with us very soon. It’s been so blooming hot lately that there isn’t much that we can do outdoors, but we can find something to do inside and enjoy the A/C. We hadContinue reading “Another Birthday”

Another Finished Object

It’s nice to have a FO (Finished Object) amidst all my UFO’s (UnFinished Objects). I’m still working on the ribbing of two pairs of socks and will finish at least one pair before I start anything else. I finished the knitted potholder Sunday afternoon. The lines on either side where I grafted the openings willContinue reading “Another Finished Object”

Where Did The Time Go?

This day has flown by and here it is after 11:00 pm! It’s been raining for several hours and we are enjoying the soothing sound of rain on the roof. We haven’t done much today. I made chicken salad for sandwiches for our lunch and Brad drove in to pick up pizza for dinner. He’sContinue reading “Where Did The Time Go?”

Project Finished

The last hand towel is finished. It seems I missed my row count on the blue one and the tab at the top is a few rows shorter than on the other two. It’s not enough of a problem to take it out and redo it. The blue yarn is a tad thinner than theContinue reading “Project Finished”

Here We Go Again!

It’s the beginning of the second week of March and the weather has been warm and sunny. So, of course we have a chance of snow later in the week! I really thought we were past that, and it might miss us yet. You just never know with Texas weather. In any case, there isn’tContinue reading “Here We Go Again!”
