Toggle Commented 12 hours ago on Yarnalong.... at woolythyme
I came really close to passing up yarnalong this week.... Oh, I'm still reading, and still knitting, but the oppressive heat of summer hasn't hit yet and it's pretty hard not to spend every dry, daylight minute putzing in the garden. My book sort of reflects this mood...Lab Girl is... Continue reading

Am I looking a little sad today? This look is actually not just sad,but also forlorn, disgusted, depressed, downcast, doleful, and just a little heartbroken. Look what has invaded my world. My human-mom's human-daughter got this creature for her youngest son's birthday. I guess that makes my human-mom a great-grandma... Continue reading

I ordered pink for one of the 'new-to-be' babies at church. Hubby said I needed blue. (Obviously, I need to listen to him more often!!!) Diamonds Baby Blanket is an easy-peasy pattern that I'm knitting in bulky. It should be about 40" square when finished vs the 23.5" you would... Continue reading

Oh, Tracey!!! How lovely everything looks!!! I'm crushed I'm going to miss the shower. I was on my way....stopped off in Oxford, MS (you know, I can't pass Square Books without a stop there!!!), and discovered our Living Waters for the World training session was going on; I had to...

Except for tucking in a few a whole lot of ends, which may or may not GET tucked in, the worsted mitered blanket is finished. It ended up being a large lap size...11 x 14 mitered squares. (Each mitered square started out with 31 stitches.) This truly is a scrappy... Continue reading

Betwixt and between mitered squares, the little nest was knitted and felted....three little eggs were needle-felted. Stinkin' cute! Happy spring. Just started this historical novel about Georgia O'Keefe. Too soon for a judgment call, although I'm not as engaged with it as I've been with my last few books. Only... Continue reading

Toggle Commented Apr 11, 2016 on a great mail week... at woolythyme
Once upon a time there were a group of friends who met to play bridge. Three tables worth of bridge-playing people. The only time we saw each other was for that once-a-month dinner, but we became real close. And then a couple moved away. And now we were 10. The... Continue reading

It's time past time to start on the baby blankets, but up until this morning, I've had the very convenient excuse that the yarn I ordered a couple weeks ago hadn't arrived. A couple women at church are expecting---one much sooner than the other. I picked out the patterns. One... Continue reading

A good mail day is one with no bills and no junk mail. A great day includes fibery stuff. Just look at this I not the luckiest person E-V-E-R??? Last week I was hopping around on Craftsy...still trying to get my head around the fact that it's not just... Continue reading

It is. A SCI (seamen church institute) pattern.....quick knit, less than a skein of worsted. Nice break from other things occasionally!!!

I don't think the temps could drop low enough for him to don a hat (in spite of the fact that those ears drag in the snow!).

This looks like you have incorporated a planner and a journal into one....what a stellar idea!!! I'm not much of a 'planner'....I'm more an impulsive 'do-er'; but I most definitely have the greatest respect for those who can plan---and then carry out those plans!!!
HMMMMMMMM. Yarnalong. I've never written a yarnalong post before. Hey! Look!!! That's ME on the computer!!! Sweet. (I'm easily distracted.) My mom has been busy lately, ignoring her blog...ignoring Instagram...ignoring her blogland friends---she does love you all!!! (I don't allow her to ignore me.) She has a presentation to Continue reading
