HI. Freddy here. No. That is NOT poop I'm eating. It's my yummy dental treat to make my horrible doggy breath....because I eat poop.... smell better. It's a win-win. We (that's the royal 'we'...me and mom) had another very very very busy week last week. We (she) 'blasted' the house...again.... Continue reading

i know what you mean.....i really don't like working with cotton even though it's a much more practical fiber for the south. Really wreaks havoc on my hands!

The Feza Baby Gradient Blanket kit was one big, boring project. I hate knitting with cotton, and this was a cotton/viscose blend that split terribly. I would have switched to wooden needles if I had had #2 circulars, and I think that might have helped. So, what's on the needles... Continue reading

We went to the St. Louis Cardinals game----twice----this week.... The first time, we arrived just as they cancelled the game on account of promised, impending storms. The storms came and we----and the rest of the people planning on going to the game----took shelter at the City Museum. It was crowded... Continue reading

Contrary to popular belief....there is still fiber in my diet. Just not quite as much...and definitely not as exciting...as in the past. On the needles....another Citron shawl for the shawl-ministry pile (the 'pile' of which, at the moment, is non-existent, the last one having been gifted last week). This is... Continue reading

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

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...

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!!!
