ho-ho-holiday bumps.... This week is officially 'Cookie Week'. I love making holiday cookies, even though a whole lot of our favorites don't look at all like holiday cookies. (If I made the shortbreads and spritz and decadent chocolate ones that we all !!!LOVE!!! [love, love, love!!!!] more often than once... Continue reading

Dear Sandy Paws, Just look at the mess I found myself in. And I was just being a helper. Honest. Mom's stocking was hung by the bedpost with care and somehow fell off. (I knew it was mom's because of the lobsters on it. She likes lobsters. A LOT.) I... Continue reading

Cowls are the winter solution to warm. Simple as that. They stay put. They can cozy up and keep your nose warm. Or they can simply hang loose and pretend to be a scarf. And they can't fall off and get lost, which is an added bonus. If it's a... Continue reading

Thanks, Miss Ann. I just like to lick all the silverware clean. And the plates. I already know that soap taste yucky. (I'm a quick study.)
Dear Sandy Claws, It's that time of year again!!! I helped mom put away all the turkey stuff and now we're working on getting out the Christmas stuff. So before it's all out and I'm enticed to stick my nose where it probably doesn't need to be.... and maybe munch... Continue reading

I have a very, very good life. I was rescued, so how could it get much better, you ask? I have a couple pointers that I thought I'd share. 1. Get enough rest. I nap about 22 of the 24 hours of the day. That's just because I'm old. I... Continue reading

Dear Knitting, I know you've been worried ever since a friend and I (along with about 6 others) signed up for the Playing with Fiber class at the local School of Art and Design. I missed class 1 on paper weaving (and you were ecstatic, thinking I was ditching the... Continue reading

We're weeks away, but for some reason, I'm get ready. (very unlike me) Before any trip, first things first. What knitting to pack? I was planning to take the Abide Shawl. oops. That came off the needles yesterday. It would have been the perfect travel project....big enough to last... Continue reading

I have been waiting ALL!WEEK!LONG!FOR!THIS!!!! Just the thought of sticking my nose in the wastebasket and not getting my head jerked out of it was pure heaven. I had several test 'dunks' throughout the week. Several of you commented that you wanted your name placed on ball bands, but honestly,... Continue reading

I've settled into a rhythm this week after a crazy cast-on one last week. (Blame it on the *giveaway book...if you haven't entered for a chance to win, you can still post a comment here; Freddy will announce the winner next Monday.) Shawls. Yes. Plural. It's the week of the... Continue reading

I don't believe in learning 'tricks'. I see no point in them. And now that I'm old and have lost my hearing....what good would it be to know 'come' and 'stay' when I couldn't hear the 'commands' anyway? Commands? C'mon! I live in an equal-opportunity household and no one 'commands'... Continue reading

How incredibly, ludicrously, insane...two blog sites this weekend (here and here (Nov. 2 post), three if you count this rabbit hole I fell into, all talking about a word/idea/concept I'd never before heard of----yet had spent the entire weekending (let's face it...most of my adult life) striving for.

I have absolutely no control!! I just wound the yarn and am casting on.....RIGHT NOW!!!! Do you have your yarn?
This is so hubby and I always say we're so lucky to own the best bed in the world!!! I might move up the knitting options on my list, but otherwise, our lists are just about carbon copies of each other!!!

A couple weeks ago Mary Lou Egan asked if I'd like to review her new book, Drop-Dead Easy Knits. First and foremost, I was flattered that she was willing to share this with me. She's a real designer!! Her patterns are always lovely. She co-authored this book with Gale Zucker... Continue reading

I first learned the story of St. Kilda as I was wandering around Kelvingrove Art Museum last year. Photos of sheep on a wall and knitted things in a case...of course, I'm going to stop and see what it's all about. St. Kilda is an archipelago on the western-most edge... Continue reading
