Bet you thought it was Freddy posting, right? Sorry. Just me. Strawberry jam day here. Six jars full. Only six. Do I really want to make that mess all over again? What do you think? Yum. Continue reading

Thanks, Cindy. We might have boost each other up with all this laceweight knitting going on. (I did the Albers cowl a couple years ago…one of my favorites, but the cowl was NOT in laceweight!!!!!)

Hello, my friends. Freddy here. Look what I found? I!FOUND!A!BALL!BAND!!!! To be honest, I felt so sick for so long that I hadn't really been looking for any lately. All of a sudden, I've started to feel better, and I've found myself with that uncontrollable munch. I thought I... Continue reading

First up, is this cowl that has spent much too long in an unfinished state. It's actually not really finished now, but it's done. By that, I mean...I decided it was time to end this project. First of all, it is very, very wide....and it's knit in the round, which... Continue reading

Thanks, Miss Karen. I had a teeny nibble just last night!! Hi, to Frodo. (I’m ignoring Holly. I think she’s in Marley’s category in my world. Us guys must stick up for each other.)

Hey, Budd!!! Thanks for the shout-out! Life continues to be pretty good today. Just taking it one day at a time right now. BUT, the crazy thing…..I have no desire to munch on poop. Go figure. It used to be my go-to after dinner treat! History….at least for now. Mom’s keeping me in cookies…..and I convinced her to give me my old food, which really wasn’t so bad. I did find a ball band the other night…..HEAVEN!!!!! Your friend, FREDDYdogYOUNG

Thank you Miss Margaret. You know mom….all she wants to do is knit and take pictures. I’d get stuck with all the real work!!! plus, she just doesn’t give me enough computer time. sigh. If only I had opposable thumbs and could use a pen!! A book would be a piece of cake. And all my furry friends could take a bite out of it!!!

Thank you!!! Yes, I took a nibble on a stray knitting pattern just this morning. If this can only keep up!!! I’ll be on to ball bands in no time!

Miss Wendy. My mom doesn’t eat chicken 🐓 either so I feel real special that she makes an exception for me when I’m feeling less than wonderful. Hope you are having a nice day. Each one is special!!! Sent from my iPhone

Hi, my friends. Freddy here. Thank you again for all the nice get-well wishes you have sent me. At this very minute, I'm feeling pretty good again. What a roller-coaster the past 6 weeks have been. I think the roughest ride was this week. Have you ever been wormed? Take... Continue reading

What? You weren't holding your breath...wondering what made the 'cut' for the flower show? IMHO not a 'winner' among them, but they are packaged up and ready to be dropped off this morning. I had an old wire bottle carrier which may or may not get them to show unscathed.... Continue reading

Knitting monogamy is not all it's cracked up to be. I know. I know. Last week MasonDixon showed great progress on the Shakerag Top and attributed it to the Principle of Project Fidelity. I've used that Principle several times myself....usually in the 'race to the finish line' with some things... Continue reading

My garden club is having a little flower show next week. There are three areas....floral arrangement, photography, and horticulture. Each area has divisions and you choose what to submit among several 'classes' in each division. Fower arranging. Leave me out. My idea of 'arranging' flowers is gathering a big bunch...

Aibrean is finished. It still needs a vigorous washing and an aggressive blocking to soften the linen, but I think it will be fine. Do you see the three sleeves? No? Good. I knit three. The first was way too wide, so I aggressively narrowed the next two, and they... Continue reading
