Toggle Commented 2 days ago on too much of a good thing.... at woolythyme
What was I thinking when I ordered the Kauni for the mitered cross blanket a few years ago? Maybe I had planned to double it? SHEESSH. Who knows? Blanket. Check. Pine bough cowl (one of the favorite things I've ever knit). Check. And now...a simple linen stitch cowl... not as... Continue reading

Well, I guess I don't have to tell you where I spent the weekend....AGAIN! Believe me, camp is not all it's made out to be. I was so glad to be home again that I even allowed myself to be model for the latest FO. Here is Hap for Harriet,... Continue reading

Y-A-W-N.........!!!!! I am really really tired this morning. Really. Mommy had me up most of the night. We went to bed like we usually do, with me on the chair next to Mom where I can keep my eye on her. (Like eye-to-eye even when they are closed.) First time... Continue reading

I'm one of those people who usually just loves the most recently knit pattern!! But, honestly, this Hansel truly was a lovely design, and the pattern comes with directions for both the full hap that I did and for a half hap. I don't think you could go wrong with this one! Of course, Kate Davies has a whole book of haps.....and I've never knit a pattern of hers that I haven't loved.

Five weeks in to 2017 and I haven't made a single yarn purchase yet. (this might be a record.) Needles, yes. (not my fault---blame security in El Salvador) Yarn, no. This full version Hansel used some Knit Picks Bare from a purchase last year when I thought I was ready... Continue reading

The group is actually called Hats and More for War Torn Syria, a ravelry group founded by Jean (Seattle USA/Canada), Laurie (Jordan/New Jersey USA) and Virginia (Ireland); they are volunteering on behalf of Studio Syria, which is sponsored by “Save the Children”. The need for hats has become less of... Continue reading

El Salvador was incredibly beautiful in so many ways....the landscape, the sea, the people. We were driving between water sites...going up one volcano down another...this shot was from the top of a mountain, looking out over the two volcanoes we had traversed earlier in the day. The haze is from... Continue reading

Citron is off the needles, washed, blocked and tucked away...and used stash yarn. A win-win. This will become a prayer shawl, so as always, I'm hoping I won't have to dig this one out any time soon. I started Hap for Harriet by Kate repeat in to the pattern,... Continue reading

oh, Maddy. I don't think I get my toenails cut anymore because one time they cut toooooo close and I was a walking-dead bloody mess. It actually did hurt so much, but it sure wreaked havoc on mommy white furniture. I hope you feel OK today. And aren't bloody.

I finished the Turoa mitts from Drop Dead Easy knits, started before Christmas. They were easy, and they were quick....and they would have been done much sooner if the yarn (which was dyed with cochineal) wasn't bleeding all over my hands. A real mess. Some instagram friends assured me that... Continue reading
