Hi, my friends. Freddy here. And it's not even Sunday or Monday. I saw the computer abandoned and decided I'd grab a chance to jot off my latest very cool discovery. (Mom hasn't had a chance to write here much because she's been knitting on that shawl. It's done and... Continue reading

Nothing easier than garter stitch. And making strips...skinny ones separating wider ones....has made this a portable summer project. And a stash-buster...grab a leftover ball of fingering weight, knit to the end...grab another...knit.knit.knit. As awful as some of the color combinations might initially appear, in the overall scheme of the blanket,... Continue reading

I have that same bag (in that same colour!!!) and love mine as much as you love yours. There is just a slot/pocket for everything I want to haul around; it's not too big, not too small. Just right. Maybe we should call this the "goldilocks bag"????

The last couple weeks, I've been reading.....a bunch. Writing pages every day. Taking copious numbers of photographs. Collecting photos from the internet. Editing and rearranging a whole lot of old photos. And even squeezing in a little knitting every so often. So why no blog posts? Anyone want to read... Continue reading
