First of all, Freddy wanted me to tell you that he simply couldn't force himself from under my feet yesterday long enough to even say 'hello'. Of course, today he's bummed that he blew his computer day being my shadow. The trip down-east (isn't that what Maine-ers call home?)was wonderful,... Continue reading

I'm getting ready to be sad. The dreaded suitcase has made an appearance. Have I ever told you how much a hate suitcases? Well, I do. For a guy who hates very few things in this world, suitcases are 'numero uno'; off-hand I can't think of a 'duo'. And the... Continue reading

The one I made him last year has been worn ONCE....he runs when he sees it. I never thought he just didn't like the colours!!! Brilliant!
yep. an inch is about all i can part with too!!!
Years ago I grabbed bits and pieces and itty balls of random, mismatched sock yarn (which for some strange reason I CANNOT THROW AWAY) and made fraternal-twin socks. Since there are m-a-n-y bits and pieces and itty balls of sock yarn around here, I was planning on having a whole... Continue reading

Dear Mommy's Blog Friends, OH!BOY!OH!BOY!OH!BOY!!! Just wait 'til you hear! I had the !!BEST!! time last week. There it was...nearly 7 pm and I was getting ready to settle into my evening routine of switching between watching baseball, stealing yarn ball bands from my mom, and sitting on the vent....

First and foremost....Flaum is finished. We're celebrating by going to church together this morning. It took the whole summer to knit (off and on) which is, I guess, the way knitting should's off the needles just as the temps are thinking about dropping enough to call our days 'sweater-wearing'...

Flaum. sigh. I've finally reached the second sleeve. I feel as if I've been working on this sweater half my life. The fisherman ribbing is finished. yay! what a pain! The pockets are in (although not attached until after blocking.) wooo-whooo! The sleeves on double points are not. boo. I... Continue reading

Mommy is taking a photography class. As her self-appointed best friend in the whole world and beyond (my version of Buzz Lightyear's 'infinity and beyond'), it's my job to be her #1 helper. And we all know, I'm a pretty darn good helper. I'm not sure what our assignment was... Continue reading

Dear Reed. I would love to come play with you. My mommy would have to bring me, though, and she's directionally impaired. I'm not sure we'll get there much before you grow up. But I'll pretend I'm wearing your 'leash' and you can pretend you're talking me on a walk. Where will we go? (sniffing out ball bands at YOUR house!!!! I hope!!) Love, Freddy.

Surprise! Freddy here. Mommy and a friend went to St. Louis to see a play, so I have the whole day to do stuff. She was planning on doing a quick bloggy-something about this sweater until I jumped on it, but I think you can still see it pretty good.... Continue reading

The last 24 hours, I've been merrily casting on---willy-nilly. First, this cowl--using yarn I was gifted a couple years ago. Then, the shawl Ginny showed last Yarnalong... And finally, some fingerless mitts (Christmas gift) WHOA. I did the ribbing with the 'smaller' dps, then went to change to the larger... Continue reading

I'm finding the same thing going on around here....was there a blackout I didn't know about 8 or 9 months ago???
I tried to tell him it was Yarnalong day....the day knitting and books are featured, not the furry boy. He was having none of it. The camera comes out and he hurls himself on the chair...and immediately poses himself so nonchalantly .... like, ho-hum. I've been here all morning. Trust... Continue reading

Hi. Freddy here. (It's Monday. Remember? MY DAY!!!) Did you miss me? (Silly question, of course, you did!) I hope you had as good a week as I did. I had to go to camp again, and I really hated it--even if it was only for one day, but I... Continue reading
