Toggle Commented 2 days ago on new toy....not mine at woolythyme
My mom got a new toy. Can you tell what it is? Can you tell I'm overly excited about the whole thing? Her new wide-angle lens can take a picture of a whole room at the same time. This room is where we play on the computer, knit, sleep (that... Continue reading

Toggle Commented 5 days ago on World Water Day.....let's celebrate at woolythyme
How lucky we are that we don't have to carry our water with us... that we don't have to worry about whether that clean-looking water is safe to drink... (a flushing toilet!) 663 million people in the world (that's 10% of the world's population) are not so lucky....access to clean... Continue reading

don't you just hate when something like that happens.....and then you keep reliving those few minutes before, and what you could have done to avoid it? (drives me crazy!!!!) glad to hear that you are recouping nicely......and taking advantage of all that down time. Great knits going....and finished. Continue to heal!!!

I needed a couple more baby hats in reserve.....there have been a slew of friends' 'grandbabies' arriving lately!
Toggle Commented Mar 17, 2017 on big hats....little hats.... at woolythyme
A big hat.....for me! When the Shetland Wool Week hat pattern was released last week, I thought it would be the perfect pattern to go with the Tide Mittens (from the book, Knitting from the North)---not matchy-matchy, but complementary....not the same grey, but close. One skein of spindrift 'bracken' was... Continue reading

Toggle Commented Mar 14, 2017 on it's bracketology time..... at woolythyme
Freddy here. Ho. Hum. It's that time of year again. March Madness....and the infamous bracketology. I've been the winner of our household 'pool' for years. (Daddy is NOT happy about this.) Mommy even wrote about my system for picking here and he still picks his own way. Maybe this year... Continue reading

thanks, Laura!
Toggle Commented Mar 8, 2017 on blankets.... at woolythyme
Freddy(DogYoung) blogged earlier in the week about his (?!) new scrappy blanket we were working on, and it got me thinking about blankets.... For years, blankets were my go-to project for the simple reason that they always 'fit'. Back in those days, gauge was a mere suggestion in my knitting... Continue reading

Hi. Freddy here. Mommy has been too busy this week to write. We've been making me a new blanket. Do you like it? I!LOVE!IT!SO!MUCH!BECAUSE!I'M!REALLY!HELPING!TO!MAKE!IT! Really. Look. Here I am, checking to make sure no ball bands were left on any yarn. There weren't. I'm pretty thorough, but it was worth... Continue reading

Happy Monday. Freddy here. I came so close yesterday to having the most awesome day ever....wait til you hear.... First of all, mom scurried around after church to get the house tidied up. This usually means we're going to settle down to a whole afternoon of being couch-potatoes with snuggling... Continue reading

It's 2 am and I can't sleep. And I don't have any knitting that is screaming to be finished. I don't have any knitting that simply wants to be knit. And the book that I've been half-heartedly reading stinks. Thank goodness for the internet....and all those blog posts that I've... Continue reading
