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!”

Another Project Almost Finished

I had hoped to have finished the cowl by this evening, but I took most of the day off from knitting for the sake of my joints. I remembered the bottle of ibuprofen and took a dose of it a little while ago and then picked back up and started the last section of theContinue reading “Another Project Almost Finished”

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”

Afternoon Coffee Break

Since yesterday was rather stressful I fixed myself a nice cup of coffee in the French press before I got settled in my recliner. It really did the trick and was very easy and quick to prepare. Coffee prepared this way has a richer taste than coffee made in the drip maker. The rest ofContinue reading “Afternoon Coffee Break”

Fall is Finally Here

We woke up to 68° in the house and 58° outside and turned the heat on to get the chill off the house. It’s a gorgeous day, sunny with a light breeze and Brad is headed to the coffee shop for breakfast croissants. We like to do that on Saturday for a treat once inContinue reading “Fall is Finally Here”

There Goes Another Month

So, here we are. It’s the last day of September. How did that happen? Wow. I’ve been busy and it just sort of snuck up on me. It’s 56° outside this morning and not a breath of air moving around out there. The sun is just clearing the tops of the trees and it looksContinue reading “There Goes Another Month”

No Desk Yet, But…

The guys from Furniture Row arrived yesterday evening and we were expecting this table as well as the desk that will serve as my sewing table. No. Desk. It hasn’t arrived yet. Odd that no one at the store thought to let us know that all we were getting was the small table. I’m aContinue reading “No Desk Yet, But…”

Interesting Development

I’m very definitely NOT going to use ribbing on the top of these socks. I gave it a try and it’s too difficult to see the purl stitches. So. Plain stocking stitch it is for the feet on this pair and I’ll just knit a couple of inches of ribbing at the top of theContinue reading “Interesting Development”

The Lap Robe Is In Time-Out

The blue lace border wasn’t working. I weighed the remaining yarn after knitting ten lace repeats and I don’t have enough yarn to finish. The only other thing that will work is some white or off white handspun but the only thing in my stash is too fine for this project. I’ve frogged the laceContinue reading “The Lap Robe Is In Time-Out”

Not Much Knitting Going On

Things are finally beginning to wind down after all the home improvement projects, appointments, and errands. We are both staying put tomorrow and enjoying a day off. I haven’t done much in the way of knitting, been a bit tired, and didn’t sleep well last night. The fridge and pantry are well stocked, we don’tContinue reading “Not Much Knitting Going On”
