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.

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

Turn, Turn, Turn. Anyone remember this song? Written by Pete Seeger in the late 50's but became a hit by the Byrds in 1965. It's my favorite song. (I'm old.) You don't remember it? How about a refresher? To every thing there is a season, and a time for every... Continue reading

Mitten Garland Advent Calendar...mitten #1. It all started with what was to be a major 'pattern purge'. You know, toss all the duplicates, the printed patterns that are also in my Ravelry library, the patterns that fall in the 'what-was-I-thinking-when-I-bought-that' category. Two entire shelves of my cupboard are taken up... Continue reading

Lars, Lars, Lars. I'm afraid you haven't left room for Thanksgiving dinner.....and I'm NOT knitting you another, roomier sweater. You have a couple weeks. Time for some serious exercising, or you will be banned from the Turkey Day table. Lars (aka Sven...from Carol Anderson) was a very fun little project.... Continue reading
