December Is Here

It’s the third day of December. For some reason it doesn’t seem like December to me but I’ll probably catch up with the rest of the world at some point. It’s a gorgeous morning here. The sun will be cresting the top of the trees soon and it will be partly cloudy and in theContinue reading “December Is Here”

Another Cowl And A Load Of Hay

I decided to cast on for another Fishknits Yarn mini skein cowl. I love these colors! I’ve got ninety stitches on a 16″ size 4 needle and nothing but plain knitting. I splice the ends of the yarn when I come to them, I knotted them together when winding them into one cake of yarn.Continue reading “Another Cowl And A Load Of Hay”

Bipolar Texas Weather

It was in the low 70’s yesterday, sunny and windy. By bedtime it was 42° and the wind was rattling the window screens. The low was 32° last night and it will stay below 50° today. This will be a great day to stay indoors and work on my knitting. I need to do somethingContinue reading “Bipolar Texas Weather”

Late Start To Our Day

So, we finished the episode that had just started and ended up watching another episode andContinue reading “Late Start To Our Day”

Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks

This photo is a reminder of what I can do when I put my mind, and hands, to it. All of my 4 ounce bobbins ready to ply. I really enjoyed that summer. I can do it again as long as I take care of myself and stay on top of things. Age really isContinue reading “Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks”

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”

Time To Slow Down

As you may have already figured out…I love to knit. But the lace patterned green socks took a lot out of me and with the change in weather factored in it’s time for me to slow down a bit and stick to something simple like the stocking stitch cowl. I’m using a 16″ size fourContinue reading “Time To Slow Down”
