OH!DEAR!OH!DEAR!OH!DEAR!!!!DID!I!EVER!MESS!UP!TODAY!!!!!I'M!SORRY!I'M!SORRY!I'M!SO-O-O-!SORRY!!!!! You see. Mommy was talking on the phone to Marley's She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's Mommy. I, of course, was hanging out by her feet where I always am, when all of a sudden, I got this uncontrollable urge and I jumped up on the cushy chair (with mommy's favorite embroidered pillow), and...

Hello, mitered square blanket #4. You know, you weren't supposed to exist. I swore off fingering-weight blankets after mitered-square blanket #3. Actually, truth be told, I was done with them after which point, I divided up ALL the small balls left over and sent them (literally) around the world.... Continue reading

Happy New Year, my friends. Freddy here. Look at my exceptionally handsome hairdo. If you could have seen me pre-hairdo, you would agree that it really IS exceptionally handsome. I had an extraordinary amount of matts. I really didn't look very dashing. But, now I do. And even though I've... Continue reading

I felt the same way about all the waste. In defense of ....well, me! ...some of the use by/expiration dates were 2009 (!!) so obviously I've had a hard time letting go!!! And most of the stuff had been gifted....not things we generally use. I should have donated them right away, but then there is that guilt about giving away a gift. I've been trying hard to discourage gifts; best gifts are always the gift of time!!!

New project....old yarn...old (and recently repaired---again) needle holder (thank you, Freddy.) See. I have been knitting. Just not very much. I'd rather be taking pictures of knitting. Or pictures of anything. How about the trash I cleaned out of the pantry cupboard this morning? Let me see if I... Continue reading

Merry Christmas, my friends. In spite of tumbling the Christmas tree this year....matting up my hairdo....and dragging in dirt, leaves, and a little poop, I'm happy to report that Sandy Claws saw fit to visit me. He brought me a new 'baby' that squeaks (but I can't hear). Baby had... Continue reading

When I think I have too many mittens and gloves, I drag out Selbuvotter: Biography of a Knitting Tradition and think again. Just look at that cover! Can you really ever have too many mittens? This book is so much more than an inspiring bunch of patterns. It is the... Continue reading

Dear Sandy Claws, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Really. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry, I've never been more sorry in my whole doggy life and it was an accident.......and I'm really really really sorry. I've already told mommy how sorry I am. She said it wasn't really my fault.... Continue reading

I didn't have anything else I really wanted to knit, so I opted for the mitten lining, which I was avoiding like the proverbial plague. I thought it was going to be fiddly, tedious, and would still result in flared cuffs. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. The linings of these Snowfling Mittens... Continue reading

I really love garter stitch. So much, that I actually loved making this blanket, in spite of the fact that it was bulky yarn (a lot of it) on BIG needles (yuck), using acrylic yarn (BLECH). I should have hated this whole project....but, I love the mindlessness of the stitch.... Continue reading

An old house keeps you on your toes, and often takes you to your knees. The bad news: The kitchen sink backed up and 'flooded' the kitchen. The good news: This did not happen on Thanksgiving. The bad news: It DID happen Saturday night, so at the very least, we... Continue reading

Dear Sandy Claws, Freddy here. Yes. I know it's not December yet. I'm getting a head start on my holiday this year. I even started wearing my Christmas collar BEFORE Thanksgiving. I've been watching a lot of television lately and see that the holiday is being rushed more than ever.... Continue reading

One potato, two potato, three potato....whoa!!! Thanksgiving. Jaybob wants twice baked potatoes. Hubby loves sweet potatoes. Daughter says Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without Grandma's Potato stuffing. And then there is the corn casserole. And a friend is bringing mac and cheese (something I never thought of as a Thanksgiving side... Continue reading
