Once more I've found myself working on an embarrassingly large number of things....these were simply the two I touched last. The socks are my simple vanilla sock (with a 64 st cast on) using some partial balls from the stash of leftovers. I think I have enough if I do... Continue reading

well, if that title doesn't get the throngs scrambling to read it, what will??? All the things I didn't do this weekend.... :: I didn't start a new project :: I didn't knit on anything but a very boring New Concetta sweater, but one that I will love if the... Continue reading

Ilkley Moor. Traveling stitches are fun and rather fast! I hope this qualifies as a 'poofy-in-the-back' hat (slouchy?); I must admit I wasn't quite sure what that meant. If it doesn't meet with my grand's approval....darn, I'll just have to keep it myself! Continue reading

As much as I love the big smiling faces of Helianthus (sunflower! I'm trying real hard to learn a little Greek/Latin), I'm totally smitten at this time of year with bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus). It was introduced into North America in 1879, and is considered to be an invasive vine in... Continue reading

what sweet photos of your little ballerinas (I especially love the little blond ones!).....what a generous giveaway! Just the chance to win makes me happy....but, the cooler temps and welcoming my knitting mojo back home (it's been wandering a bit lately!) has me dancing!

Something to knit while listening to my audiobook....(the Forgotten Seamstress-- this one grabbed me immediately, but if it hadn't been highly recommended by a friend who likes the same kind of book I do, I probably would never have chosen it. It's a goodie so far.) Ilkley Moor, knit with... Continue reading

The Christmas cowl (which looks far more like a fall cowl!) was as enjoyable a knit as I anticipated. (Take that to mean hours of mindless garter stitch, which I know isn't everyone's idea of a romp in the park.) I ended up using just three of the little odd... Continue reading

just another of life's passages......the ebb and flow of life; gotta do just what feels right at the time. (but, glad you popped in again.....every once in a while---just so we know that all is as it should be!!! will be great!)

I've recently found myself with a pile of really b-o-r-i-n-g partially finished projects---the kind that make you groan to even think about dragging out, but that really need to be done. Make that-----DONE. I hate that I've thrown the church charity knitting in this category, but knit 3, purl 3,... Continue reading

i wish! I was given this goal: to keep it alive over the winter!!!!
The night blooming cereus looks a little like a big ugly gangly oversized Christmas cactus..... until she starts blooming. Christmas cacti are pretty.....cereus is a real show-stopper. She's called night-blooming for a reason....her above photo shoot took place between 9 and 11 pm. I had a sleepless night.....and by 4:30... Continue reading

We went to visit our son and his family.....our daughter and her two boys came with us. Our whole family (minus our SIL who had to work...bummer) together for 48 hours. We went to a ballgame.... where we knitted....(she's very well trained...never leave home without your knitting) where my embroidery... Continue reading

I'm trying to put harnesses on my mosquitoes and let them plow up the gardens.....they are HUGE and everywhere and could definitely get the job done before I'll get around to it.
just what I was thinking, too!!!!!
The Shirley Meneice Horticulture Conference..... That's Shirley on the left. 91 years young, and she was planning another two full days of gardening fun after putting in three days before I arrived. My 3 days were all the fun I could handle, and my new 'knowledge' is slipping out of... Continue reading
