I like loft...although it's definitely not a spindrift (Jamieson yarn) which is my favorite.

I'm turning (albeit, briefly, I'm sure) to my unending (or so it seems!) UFO pile. Hello, again....Wheaten. A lovely pattern by Anne Hanson, combining lace and cables, for an interesting, yet not too complicated design. Another pattern I'm knitting twice, although not in the order it looks. Brown wheaten, 1100... Continue reading

My computer and I are sitting in front of a window that faces onto our front porch...where I have been watching part of the hummingbird migration pausing to feed at the feeder. Those little guys (most of them are guys...ruby-throated) are queued up and waiting (literally) in the bushes for... Continue reading

I'm definitely not giving up my dream to share the same experience someday!!!!

Bucket lists. Do you have one? Mine isn't very long and some of the things on it, were placed on it after they happened. Like the time I found myself in the middle of the monarch migration. It seemed like thousands of them (although probably more like hundreds) flying around... Continue reading

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
