Dear Sandy Claws, Freddy here. Yes. I know it's not December yet. I'm getting a head start on my holiday this year. I even started wearing my Christmas collar BEFORE Thanksgiving. I've been watching a lot of television lately and see that the holiday is being rushed more than ever.... Continue reading

One potato, two potato, three potato....whoa!!! Thanksgiving. Jaybob wants twice baked potatoes. Hubby loves sweet potatoes. Daughter says Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without Grandma's Potato stuffing. And then there is the corn casserole. And a friend is bringing mac and cheese (something I never thought of as a Thanksgiving side... Continue reading

Turn, Turn, Turn. Anyone remember this song? Written by Pete Seeger in the late 50's but became a hit by the Byrds in 1965. It's my favorite song. (I'm old.) You don't remember it? How about a refresher? To every thing there is a season, and a time for every... Continue reading

Hi. Freddy here. Yeah. I know. It's been a while. Now you see why. JUST!LOOK!AT!ME!!!!! NO!DON'T!!!!! My hair has been growing out over a month. And I'm still bald. I look ridiculous.

Mitten Garland Advent Calendar...mitten #1. It all started with what was to be a major 'pattern purge'. You know, toss all the duplicates, the printed patterns that are also in my Ravelry library, the patterns that fall in the 'what-was-I-thinking-when-I-bought-that' category. Two entire shelves of my cupboard are taken up... Continue reading

Lars, Lars, Lars. I'm afraid you haven't left room for Thanksgiving dinner.....and I'm NOT knitting you another, roomier sweater. You have a couple weeks. Time for some serious exercising, or you will be banned from the Turkey Day table. Lars (aka Sven...from Carol Anderson) was a very fun little project.... Continue reading

Young Lars. Look how skinny he is! Flat is actually a better word...flat as Flat Stanley. With cheeks and chin totally whisker-free. Something tells me that the aging process is going to take a toll on both. I'm hoping as he ages, his sense of style will improve. Fashionista he... Continue reading

thanks, wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. 'geogia' though, did sort of blow my mind! (I was with a group with a tour 'leader'...i lost two tour groups to get that photo!!!)

When the weather turned chilly last weekend, I couldn't wait to dive into my WIPs and dig out a sweater. Idlewild by Julie Hoover was dragged out. The back was already done! Happy dance. I actually marked where I was on the pattern. Happy, happy dance. I could recover one... Continue reading

A simple cowl. It was so simple that I had serious doubts about how it would look finished. That's me doubting me...since this wasn't a formal pattern. My favorite multi-coloured cowls are done in the round to avoid seeing the colour changes (and to avoid the need to tuck in... Continue reading

I don't think I've ever had a month quite like this October. There was Ghana, a 45 minute presentation for my literary group, hosting book club, a 40 minute talk for my church's fall gathering (too bad the two talks couldn't have been on the same subject!!!), a two week... Continue reading
