Until inspiration hits, I decided to slog away on the diamond baby blanket. After all, it DOES have a deadline, albeit not a real pending one. Usually I can easily polish off a skein of yarn in a day...but 'slogging' doesn't consume quite that amount of yarn, so this will... Continue reading

Baby blanket, why didn't I finish you when the weather was 50? I know 80 isn't as hot as it's going to get, but you are worsted weight acrylic and so not breathable (although machine washable, which momma will appreciate, I hope). Little Boy Blue isn't due until July and... Continue reading

Me and Mom have been in the garden today. As you can see, my role has been primarily supervisory. We toured, looking for new stuff. The hydrangeas are starting to bloom, which has mom happy dancing since they haven't had any flowers for the past couple summers. They like their... Continue reading

A pair for hubby's drawer. A pair for mine. I think the knitting-blahs are just about over. (I knit vanilla socks during the knitting blahs.) I feel a case of startitis coming on. Small flower mitts jumped on my needles last night. A lovely little pattern designed by Leigh Miller,... Continue reading

Mine has been taking a rest in time out but I should get it out again soon. It's sort of hard to knit a wooly scarf when the garden is calling!!! Sent from my iPhone

On the needles...more socks. Sunshine by Cookie A. from the book Sock Innovation. It was one of my travel projects that traveled but didn't get a single minute of attention. (I knew better than to take something that used a chart. Really I did!) As it was, knitting time was... Continue reading

my new camera is a nikon d5500 and so far i'm over the moon loving it.....very lightweight, can really push the iso....so many features and gizmos that I haven't begun to explore. Really want to take it with me to Brimfield, but I know better. Save the camera play for when I get home!!!
you may have a sleepy navigator....(remember, I get lost in the backyard!!!)...AND, my flight just got moved up. I'm going to have to start my day tomorrow about 4 am!

When I don't know what to knit....I knit socks. I have a rather obscene number of socks (three drawers full), I have given away that many if not more, and am now working to fill hubby's drawers (yes, that plural was intentional). I apparently live in that knitting-world-of-indecision quite a... Continue reading

with my......(eep!) new camera!!! the mulch should come today...things will look a gazillion times better when we get that down! The plants obviously couldn't care less whether they are mulched or not....(that's only because it's not hot yet. Believe me, they'll care LOTS soon!) Rosa 'Iceberg' is climbing like crazy...

I came really close to passing up yarnalong this week.... Oh, I'm still reading, and still knitting, but the oppressive heat of summer hasn't hit yet and it's pretty hard not to spend every dry, daylight minute putzing in the garden. My book sort of reflects this mood...Lab Girl is... Continue reading

Am I looking a little sad today? This look is actually not just sad,but also forlorn, disgusted, depressed, downcast, doleful, and just a little heartbroken. Look what has invaded my world. My human-mom's human-daughter got this creature for her youngest son's birthday. I guess that makes my human-mom a great-grandma... Continue reading

I ordered pink for one of the 'new-to-be' babies at church. Hubby said I needed blue. (Obviously, I need to listen to him more often!!!) Diamonds Baby Blanket is an easy-peasy pattern that I'm knitting in bulky. It should be about 40" square when finished vs the 23.5" you would... Continue reading
