A Slight Miscalculation

The 10 lb estimate I gave for the Allons-Y! Fiber Arts fiber stash turned out to be 24 lbs. Next up is what you see in this photo. The bottom shelf is easy. Those are 1 lb bags of fiber, all seven of them. The two baskets and the plastic bin contain samples of fiberContinue reading “A Slight Miscalculation”

Elon Strikes Again, And Again

Yesterday was quite interesting. James O’Keefe, Emerald Robinson, Matt Couch, Mike Lindell and others had their accounts on Twitter restored. Then there was installment #6 of the Twitter Files aimed at the FBI. Fox was losing their collective minds starting with “Elon Musk’s Twitter Massacre” on The Five over Musk suspending ‘journalists’ who were doxxingContinue reading “Elon Strikes Again, And Again”

November! How Did That Happen?

So, November 1st just snuck right by me yesterday. Here we are with a brand new month and absolutely gorgeous weather to boot! It’s a few minutes after noon on Wednesday, the sun is shining, a lovely breeze is blowing through the house from the open living room window and the front door. It’s 67°Continue reading “November! How Did That Happen?”

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 For A Staycation

We’ve both had about all the housecleaning we, or our sinuses, can stand for the time being so we’re taking the weekend off from Fall Cleaning. I’m on the verge of a sinus/ear infection and taking homeopathics to keep it under control. 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”
