Hi. Freddy here. Yeah. I know. It's been a while. Now you see why. JUST!LOOK!AT!ME!!!!! NO!DON'T!!!!! My hair has been growing out over a month. And I'm still bald. I look ridiculous. (and I know it....I don't even have to look in a mirror). Mommy just got a way-too-short haircut,... 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

we were there for a class reunion the end of September.....and as much as he wanted to go along, Freddy had to go to camp. Hubby and I grew up in the South Hills area...where are you?!?

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

Young Lars. Look how skinny he is! Flat is actually a better word...flat as Flat Stanley. With cheeks and chin totally whisker-free. Something tells me that the aging process is going to take a toll on both. I'm hoping as he ages, his sense of style will improve. Fashionista he... Continue reading

thanks, wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. 'geogia' though, did sort of blow my mind! (I was with a group with a tour 'leader'...i lost two tour groups to get that photo!!!)

When the weather turned chilly last weekend, I couldn't wait to dive into my WIPs and dig out a sweater. Idlewild by Julie Hoover was dragged out. The back was already done! Happy dance. I actually marked where I was on the pattern. Happy, happy dance. I could recover one... Continue reading

A simple cowl. It was so simple that I had serious doubts about how it would look finished. That's me doubting me...since this wasn't a formal pattern. My favorite multi-coloured cowls are done in the round to avoid seeing the colour changes (and to avoid the need to tuck in... Continue reading

I don't think I've ever had a month quite like this October. There was Ghana, a 45 minute presentation for my literary group, hosting book club, a 40 minute talk for my church's fall gathering (too bad the two talks couldn't have been on the same subject!!!), a two week... Continue reading

what a heartache.....but I think it's a wonderful sign that you just started obviously LOVE this pattern and it WILL be a wonderful addition to your wardrobe. (and a tribute to perseverance!)

Hubby's BROWN socks...(remember these?!?...the ones YOU all convinced me I needed to take on the plane a couple weeks ago) and Dan BROWN's latest novel. It's been awhile since I've grabbed a page-turner. I love to knit and read at the same time when it's a mindless, quick action story,... Continue reading

Janesville Jacket is finished. It's pretty perfect for a cool fall day; the only problem is....we have yet to have that 'cool, fall day'. I think we're close. This has been 'hanging over my head'....I volunteered (yes, I really did) to knit 6 shawls for a dear friend's daughter's wedding.... Continue reading

oh, camera was on overdrive the entire time. The culture is so colorful and rich and different. I loved every minute.

Freddy here. I went to camp. I had a pretty good time there until the last day when I had to go to the beauty shop. I do not look funny. I do not look funny. Repeat after me. Freddy, you do not look funny. OK. So my ears were... Continue reading

Thanks, Andi! I always feel there is a fine line between sharing a great trip...and boring everyone! I'm planning to post at least one more set of photos. Ghana was such a rich cultural experience!!!

i splurged before leaving on the trip and bought a Nikon 28-300 to replace my Tamron 18-270. I LOVE this new lens....although wished I had dragged along a wide angle as well. Live and learn!!!
