NO!I!CAN'T!BELIEVE!MY!NOSE!AND!EYES! HOW!CAN!THEY!DO!THIS!AGAIN!SO!SOON? This IS a suitcase, right? Maybe I'm just dreaming it. I really should have seen it coming. I've been seeing piles appear all over the house. Piles of clothes (maybe the laundry wasn't put away yet???). Piles of notebooks and brochures and bottle neck tabs in a foreign... Continue reading

Citron is off the needles, washed, blocked and tucked away...and used stash yarn. A win-win. This will become a prayer shawl, so as always, I'm hoping I won't have to dig this one out any time soon. I started Hap for Harriet by Kate repeat in to the pattern,... Continue reading

oh, Maddy. I don't think I get my toenails cut anymore because one time they cut toooooo close and I was a walking-dead bloody mess. It actually did hurt so much, but it sure wreaked havoc on mommy white furniture. I hope you feel OK today. And aren't bloody.

I finished the Turoa mitts from Drop Dead Easy knits, started before Christmas. They were easy, and they were quick....and they would have been done much sooner if the yarn (which was dyed with cochineal) wasn't bleeding all over my hands. A real mess. Some instagram friends assured me that... Continue reading

Hi. Freddy here. Me and Mommy have been having terrible issues with our computer. No. Wait. We LOVE our computer. Our issues have been with our service. We hate our internet service. I'm sure you understand. I get to write today because I have infinitely more patience than my mom... Continue reading

that's funny that you should say that.....I was going to take a photo of the pile of sweaters, but my computer is taking FOREVEr to load photos these days and I just didn't want to twiddle my thumbs any longer!!! If my broadband corrects itself....I just may load that pic on! :)

Good thing this pattern really IS Pure & Simple and it's a good thing that I've knit it so many times that I only need to refer to it for a couple of key numbers.... because Freddy apparently loves it as much as hubby does. He has it in yellow,... Continue reading

that throw turned out GREAT!!!! (Of course, I'd love it!!! IT's GREY!!!) What a nice job you did.....and you are soooo right. We really must give ourselves the opportunity to be successful (even if there are a couple blips on the road to success!!!) (an asked about my old swift. Yes, there are holes up the entire shaft, so you can adjust the width depending on how the skein was wound. There is one hole that obviously was 'the favorite' over the years and shows much more wear than all the others....I think it's the one that would hold yarn wound on a typical niddy noddy. It's also the one I use most from contemporary skeins....and the little wooden needle works perfectly.)

Winding what I think will be the last skeins needed to finish this sweater....a generic top-down sweater pattern that hubby LOVES! I've lost count how many times I've knit this, but I totally 'get it'. When I find that perfect something, I want it in every colour, too. Lucky for... Continue reading

Reading: I just finished Boys on the Boat and Weight of Water...both were great reads. As so often happens....after reading a really good book, I have a hard time settling in on just a ho-hum one. I sampled and rejected a couple before settling down with Flight of Dreams...the story... Continue reading

Me and Mom and Dad always open our stockings together Christmas morning. I always get to pick first...just in case I want to trade. (I never do, but I have that option.) I'm sniffing out some Twizzlers in this one, so this is my Dad's. He always gets Twizzlers in... Continue reading
