I really did an awesome job of cabling. Yep. I'm bragging. Too bad I did it on this sweater. The neckline is too high. It once had been a turtleneck sweater and I changed that thinking it would help. It didn't. It's now hard to believe that bat-wingy kind of... Continue reading

I am house-bound. Nothing awful. Nothing bad. The eye doctor agrees with my daughter that I most definitely would be a 'scary driver' until my other eye is operated on. So here I am. I'm embracing it. When would I have found time to clean the oven? (You should have... Continue reading

i wonder if losing your running mojo is sort of like losing your knitting mojo.....with a little luck, it'll be back in full force in just a bit. breaks are always good....you'll probably come back stronger than ever!

Of all the brown hats I've knit over the years, every single one must have been gifted; nary a one in the basket of outdoor gear. A little stash diving unearthed a partial skein of what was probably Galway. Not the same weight, not the same color....but close enough. Both... Continue reading

Remember this pillow? It now lives here.... (oops. I should have moved those hydrangeas. Especially since they are fake. I hate fake flowers. I don't know why I put them there.) But, you can see the new knit pillow on the left. What you can't see is that it is... Continue reading

as long as there are no 'deadlines'....two blankets sound very reasonable to me!!! (the person who currently has two ongoing, also!!!!)

Let's start with the finishes. Wheaten, using Brooklyn Tweed Loft on #2 and #5. It's long, warm, wooly, cozy, and lovely. Everything about this pattern is perfect. I made the 'wrap' size, but I'll probably wear it as an oversized scarf. William Power's New Slow City. I think I liked... Continue reading

The Stylish Square blanket was zipping along nicely until I tried inserting a different colored block; it turned this reversible afghan immediately to one with a 'right' side and a 'wrong' side and I didn't like it. OK. Plan B. Back to the original design. Maybe that makes it Plan... Continue reading

Empty Bowls (an international project to fight hunger) has only been in our community for 5 years, but it has been embraced community-wide. I was a little worried about the support this year....snow, sleet, freezing rain, pouring rain...we've had it all in the past 24 hours, and while the attendance... Continue reading

On the needles..... I couldn't put it off any longer. The new blanket idea just wouldn't go away. So...on the needles is....the stylish square. An adjusted version. I have a lot of dark grey worsted but not enough for an entire blanket....so I'll do some random squares in random left... Continue reading

Hubby worked really hard digging out my car yesterday. (Yes, he's a keeper. No. You can't have him.) So today while my very left-brained friend was putting the finishing touches on his shoveling masterpiece---getting right down to the concrete and shoveling a good part of the street---I thought I'd return...
