Success!

I picked Joshua up at 10 am and we headed to town, talked to the young man at Game Stop and after checking with Audrey it was decided that they just needed a new game console. I was able to replace the Playstation 4 console at the farm with a Playstation 4 Pro, a refurbishedContinue reading “Success!”

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”

Digging the Staycation

I was right about the allergy thing. Woke up congested and feeling like crud. Didn’t get lunch prepared but Brad brought me the chopped steak plate from Culver’s on his way home from the farm after church. He had a hamburger and their delicious fries. We’ll probably have left-over tuna casserole for dinner later thisContinue reading “Digging the Staycation”

Time to enjoy what we’ve accomplished around the house and get some restContinue reading “Time For A Staycation”

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”

Some Adjustments Necessary

Knitting up one garter ridge on the diagonal side of the throw per pattern ridge for the lace does not allow for enough ‘give’ or stretch so I started over with the edging. Somewhere along the way I noticed that I’d started knitting on the other end of the picked up stitches. Hmmm. Not sureContinue reading “Some Adjustments Necessary”

Finished Ludlow Shawl

I cast off the shawl yesterday evening and put it in to soak this afternoon. It is currently pinned out on the blocking mats drying on the bed under the ceiling fan . I’ll get another photo after it’s dry. Pinned out it is 72″ across the top edge and 33″ deep from the topContinue reading “Finished Ludlow Shawl”
