i so agree.....but the only silver lining there was that the seams were so small!!!

I used some odds and ends of Cascade 220 for the rabbit and some bits and pieces of sport and dk for the clothes and legs. I think the shoes were dk wt. This is pretty much what Julie recommends and the pattern adjusts for the different weight of wool.

Thank you Miss Andi! At the moment, I'm a pretty darn happy girl.

Hello world. My name is Dotty. Am I cute, or what?!? oops. Excuse me. My new furry friend, Freddy...knocked me over....and my bloomers and bunny tail are showing. Please note. That IS a bunny tail. I'm definitely a bunny. I might look just a teeny bit like some other critter..a... Continue reading

It's warm. It's wooly. It's done. And it fits. Sort of. It's big, like a big, warm, wooly hug....and I'm sort of OK with that. Should I ever knit it again (which I probably won't) I would go down a needle size and a pattern size (could this have been... Continue reading

That was a stripey strip blanket I made last year.....random fingering weight yarns, all garter stitch, random width strips, held together with narrow 11 stitch strips. It was one of the most fun blankets I've ever made. Totally mindless, but I love the way it turned out....and loved that it literally ate up all my leftovers!!

Hi, My Friends. Freddy here. You might think I'm saying my weekend was so great because I'm surrounded by all this wonderful wooly-ness. Nah. I'm surrounded by wooly-ness all the time. No big deal. I woke up Friday morning, and I saw my food container, my heart pills, and my... Continue reading

Yikes?!? Did I know you were in Buffalo, too? Our stint there was many years ago....we left in the early 80s but I remember those early spring snowfalls well.

Dear Friends, This has been the saddest week of my life. Not just for me, but for everyone who lives in my whole world. There was another school shooting. No community should ever have to live through a school shooting, but for our community, this was our second. This one... Continue reading

We got snow. And ice. And COLD. And it totally 'counted'. (If no sign of grass is visible...it counts as a real snowfall.) We measured about 8" in the end. Temps dipped into the single digits. It totally 'counted'. Everything shut up and closed down all over town. Schools were... Continue reading

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 #2....at 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 Year....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.

Merry Christmas, my friends.
