Reading: Ann Patchett's The Magician's Assistant. One review has said this is one of her best. But, to tell you .... it's the story of a gay magician's assistant who has been in love with the magician her whole life, who eventually marries him after his partner dies---just months before...

Once upon a time there were two little boys. Every spring their Grandma took them to the local nursery to pick out two goldfish to swim in her puddle pond. It was a teeny tiny pond, but these were teeny tiny boys who picked out teeny tiny fish. The boys... Continue reading

i guess if I didn't feel exactly the same way, I never would have put this out as a question. I guess I can feel 'done' twice!!!

i think it's a washable wool because i got it for socks. it's very springy (as in boing-y) and I THINK it might have been a knitone crochettwo yarn?

When do you consider a project done? Rill using Jade Sapphire Lacey Lamb Antarktis from a mystery skein The knitting is finished on both, but both are residing in the to-be-blocked pile. Are they done? (hee hee According to my Ravelry page they are.) The design is embroidered. It's ready... Continue reading

That's the problem...I love to embroider, but don't know what to do with the finished pieces. (I have a mini-drawer full of FOs awaiting inspiration!) This might turn into a little project bag. ????

More color than you've seen on this blog in awhile! I can't seem to put the embroidery away....I even bought a couple new colors to add to the box. Usually, I'm quite happy to just look at the colors in the box....but I've actually been stitching on the paisley sampler... Continue reading

Sandpiper is a ridiculously easy little coverup. Basic increases at four points in a circle. The Euroflax linen, knit loosely, is a bit slippery. Thus lies the rub. I started this with the only 16" size 8 (eeeek. yes, once again, I'm out of my needle-size comfort zone)---an addi turbo.... Continue reading

this is definitely a soapbox more people NEED to jump on.....and sadly, I'm as guilty of waste too often, too. I cant' bear to throw anything away....I like the idea of the Everlasting Meal (have you read that book???). But I'll toss something into the freezer and there it stays often until freezer-burn makes it unrecognizable! I'm working on this. Really I am!!!

thanks for the book recommendations.....I haven't read Rosamunde Pilcher in YEARS, but always enjoyed her work. Two titles I don't think I ever got to.

The reading has been rather straight forward....just the knitting has seen a lot of dabbling. I finished listening to the Professor and the Madman (it was a goodie-true-story about the creation of the Oxford English dictionary I talked about last week) and read Etta and Otto and Russell and James....
