The plucky knitter Primo Worsted is amazing. Tons of colors. Your best bet is to go through Ravelry destash to purchase it. And, if no one else recommended them, any Ellis Peters mystery is soul-satisfying.

It's hot and humid today, but we had plenty of 40s-50s in May. A little cool, but that's okay. Mostly 'cause I dislike hot weather. But also because I can wear the knitted stuff that didn't get done until April.... Continue reading

Hi! If I'd blogged Saturday morning, as I planned, here's what I would have said: This weekend, it's my church conference. That means I'll have time to mail everything that's in my backlog. There's a December birthday gift that I... Continue reading

Sweater slowly progresses. Sadly, everything I put off in January and February is coming back with a bite. But hey, besides knitting, I discovered the Daniel Smith sampler sheets. Little sampler dots of watercolor paint, including half a sheet of... Continue reading

But it's 55 now! It was frigid for a few days, and now we have thunderstorms. And still no snow! I'm afraid that this sweater may have the opposite effect of my gazpacho; everytime I make gazpacho, the weather turns cold...

Oh, I do indeed check out all of the stopovers on instagram. Many times a day. Plus, the ravelry forum. I love that there are so many sources now! Back in 1988, it was my mom, the yarn store, and my Vogue knitting textbook.

Ha! I've used those semantics before. I don't do parties on Sunday, but a gathering of friends? With plenty of food? Absolutely suited to the Sabbath.

It all started when the angry chicken blog mentioned the Mason-Dixon Knitters Stopover knitalong, Bang Out A Sweater. I don't know what it was - looking at all of the different color combinations? The idea that I could knit again,... Continue reading

Nope, it's not too late at all. In fact, just finished the rest of the boats this week and I should be mailing them soon. Yay!

Jeremy was an impulse buy. This French hen has been on the project list for a while. It's not from a kit, but it is from a really well written pattern from mmm crafts. The pattern taught a great technique... Continue reading

I like a good kit at any time. But a kit in January? Where you can just knock something out without thinking about it? Joy. And if there's some nice, forgiving, wool felt involved, all the better. This is Mr.... Continue reading

I really like January. February (yes, I realize that it's February) is nice, but January? It's the month where I feel no guilt for procrastinating anything. If I want to put off finishing a project, I can. If I want... Continue reading

I'm a little over my head here, spread a little thin. It's Christmas. But just before Thanksgiving, when I was calm and at peace with my world, I happened to finish this year's prizes. IN THIS VERY SAME YEAR. Well,... Continue reading

Believe it or not, this year's prizes are partially done already. So perhaps I should mention that last year's are ready to go? A year-plus-late, but hopefully worth waiting for. Your own little diorama matchbox! In lovely Read For Fun... Continue reading

I'm getting closer on these goals! Some still to do, some to report. I've savored PLENTY while reading this fall, thank you very much. But this treat provides the best story. It started with my General Conference weekend treat: an... Continue reading

This particular discovery and obsession started on a trip to Los Angeles. My Richins cousins were kind - so kind - and invited me to join them at a beach house in Ventura. I grumbled about it being in LA... Continue reading

I had every intention of reading Treasure Island this time. Really. It's not too late, I suppose, but a few other books count. The latest Lockwood & Co. book is filled with children wielding swords against deadly ghosts, featuring the... Continue reading

Ha. I cried like a baby when I read The Penderwicks in Spring! But compared to Shakespeare and Neurotribes, definitely light and happy! Neurotribes sounds fascinating.

The report is out. Whew. Five years of teaching the early morning church class every day, followed by two years of this project, made for quite the character growth spurt. This weekend was one of my favorite weekends of the... Continue reading

It's a chant. You're lucky I didn't start singing the fight song. Or include it as background music on this post. BYU won their first football game of the season, against the Nebraska Cornhuskers, who are a lovely, gracious team.... Continue reading
