Dear Reed. I would love to come play with you. My mommy would have to bring me, though, and she's directionally impaired. I'm not sure we'll get there much before you grow up. But I'll pretend I'm wearing your 'leash' and you can pretend you're talking me on a walk. Where will we go? (sniffing out ball bands at YOUR house!!!! I hope!!) Love, Freddy.

Surprise! Freddy here. Mommy and a friend went to St. Louis to see a play, so I have the whole day to do stuff. She was planning on doing a quick bloggy-something about this sweater until I jumped on it, but I think you can still see it pretty good.... Continue reading

not yet. i really want to read it, though....but i'll be at class during the next book club meeting. :(
The last 24 hours, I've been merrily casting on---willy-nilly. First, this cowl--using yarn I was gifted a couple years ago. Then, the shawl Ginny showed last Yarnalong... And finally, some fingerless mitts (Christmas gift) WHOA. I did the ribbing with the 'smaller' dps, then went to change to the larger... Continue reading

I'm finding the same thing going on around here....was there a blackout I didn't know about 8 or 9 months ago???
I tried to tell him it was Yarnalong day....the day knitting and books are featured, not the furry boy. He was having none of it. The camera comes out and he hurls himself on the chair...and immediately poses himself so nonchalantly .... like, ho-hum. I've been here all morning. Trust... Continue reading

Hi. Freddy here. (It's Monday. Remember? MY DAY!!!) Did you miss me? (Silly question, of course, you did!) I hope you had as good a week as I did. I had to go to camp again, and I really hated it--even if it was only for one day, but I... Continue reading

another way we are alike....i find those dead and dying sunflowers totally fascinating!!!!

Finally. I think fall might be close. I've been watching a bunch of sunflowers for some of my photography class assignments. We've gone from 'perky'... to incredibly sad--even the bees seem to have rejected this one (Oops. Bad image. See that right hand edge? I almost missed it. Bad, bad,... Continue reading

Christmas may still be over 100 days away (107 to be exact...what do you mean, you haven't started your holiday knitting?) but the Seamen's Church Institute's Christmas at Sea program will be assembling their Christmas boxes much sooner than that. This was my adopted charity this year and just look... Continue reading

She caved. Finally. I've wanted my very own blog f-o-r-e-v-e-r and now I sort of have it. Mom gave me 'Mondays'. I'm still not sure why she's being so darn stingy because she hardly ever writes on here any more and when she does, it's just dumb knitting stuff. Who... Continue reading

They are really my FAVORITE scandinavian mystery books. Can't wait for the next one!

The beginning of the summer this came off my needles. And right before that...this top. Shortly thereafter, I cast on Rill (in the bird bowl) and then last week, the Silverleaf shawl appeared on my needles for a KAL Tracey is hosting. (how did THAT happen? Tracey, you enabler you!)...

I hate to admit this, but his second favorite taste treat after paper and ball bands is his own poop. Yes. I know. Totally gross and TMI. Sorry.

THANKYOU!THANKYOU!THANKYOU!!!!! I've tasted some old ones, and you are right....seasoned ones are THE BEST!!!

Well, mom followed through with her redecorating scheme (you'll have to scroll down or do whatever you have to do to read about that...I don't know how to link. I'm a dog.) All those great opportunities to remove and munch on ball bands have----WHOOOSH---- disappeared; I'm not overly happy. Have... Continue reading

I just wish I could include the 'finish' in my knitting cycle!!!!!

I wrote three blog posts this week....and trashed them all. The first one complained about the heat. The second complained about the rain. The third (if you must know, my favorite!! it really was a hum-dinger!!!) complained about the mosquitoes. If I'm going to complain (obviously, I'm in that kind... Continue reading

I love that he wants to knit! My grandson was my first knitter.....only after he learned, did the girls want to learn. And then my daughter's boys were really bored on a trip....and they let me teach them to knit. (I'm 7 for 7) Only one has actually MADE something, though.....the car riding left-hander knit a whole scarf en route home. The one and only thing he knit! I don't think I have any fanatics yet. What a shame. Who inherits my stash-legacy????
