My Hands Need A Break!

I did it. Both heels are finished and the socks are back on one needle. The rest of it is lace all the way to the top of the sock, but this project is going to go into temporary ‘time-out’ so my hands can recover. I’m not a tight knitter by any means, but sizeContinue reading “My Hands Need A Break!”

Hitchhiker: Knitting and Novel

I decided to take a break from socks for a few days and work on my Hitchhiker shawlette. It’s been quite awhile since I cast on for this project and it’s good for evening knitting and TV watching. While knitting I happened to remember that it’s been ages since I read The Hitchhiker’s Guide ToContinue reading “Hitchhiker: Knitting and Novel”

Another Rainy Day! Yay!

I drove in to pick up a grocery order first thing this morning and stopped by the coffee shop for breakfast croissants on the way home. It was just beginning to drizzle a fine mist when I left for town and it’s still overcast and damp out. We need it. I hope we get aContinue reading “Another Rainy Day! Yay!”

Finally! A Finished Project!

I cast these off the needle last night. The ends are woven in, they’ve been soaked in Eucalan and are on the sock blockers overnight. I plan on wearing them tomorrow. I’ve got quite a bit of ribbing to do on the purple socks… …and I’ve put these socks on separate needles to finish theContinue reading “Finally! A Finished Project!”

Still Raining!

The rain has dropped to a misty drizzle for now, still in the low 50’s this morning, with a slight breeze. We pray for it to continue as long as possible so the stock ponds at the farm can begin to fill up. We’ve not much water and very little grass, but there will beContinue reading “Still Raining!”

Another Glorious Day

It’s 10 am and the sky is overcast. We are waiting for the rain to begin, so yes! It’s another glorious day! The drought is finally over and we have the potential for several inches of rain over the next few days. Neither Brad nor I have any errands to run, nothing to do awayContinue reading “Another Glorious Day”

Ready, Set, Sew!

My sewing desk is in place, serger and sewing machine ready to use. All my storage boxes fit on the bottom shelf out of the way and I’ve got plenty of space in the drawers for the things I’ll use the most. I won’t need shelves on the wall above the desk after all. IContinue reading “Ready, Set, Sew!”

Ready To Weave

I wound the weft off of the larger shuttle and onto the smaller one and I’m ready to work on this band now. It’s a good size loom to use while sitting in the recliner. I woke up all congested and achy this morning but began feeling better as the day wore on, just aContinue reading “Ready To Weave”

It’s. Monday. Again.

Long night, not enough sleep. It’s Monday. I need more coffee, dude! Brad is brewing more as I write this. So. Today is Columbus Day. Don’t know what is closed, probably the Post Office, but no one talks about Columbus Day unless it’s because there is a sale going on at a furniture store. PeopleContinue reading “It’s. Monday. Again.”

A Day Of Rest

Brad is at church with the grandchildren. I’m still battling allergies but I think I’m beginning to win the battle and stay out of the doctor’s office this time. House is clean and tidy, beds made, etc. I’m having yogurt, an English muffin and French press coffee. The Cat Turd mugs are in the dishwasherContinue reading “A Day Of Rest”
