Loved that book, too. How about the Rosie Project. Light, funny, touching. A different read from Beautiful Ruins, but very good! My daughter's lab never stopped eating underwear.....sigh. We miss Derby, and Robyn misses the excuse that she needs to go buy new undies. Freddy, on the other hand, is now about 10 (he was adopted, so we're not sure his exact age) but he still lives to munch paper (knitting patterns are a delicacy) and gnaw on wooden needles. :) Good luck. (I had a dog who ate a sofa these little 'inconveniences' are sort of put in perspective in Freddy's case)

I must admit, I've only seen it (up close and personal) in a solid color.....I'm wondering if there are photos in the project section of Rav??? Off the cuff thinking....I'm afraid a real variegated would be lost with all the lace; a very subtle variegation might work just fine.
Sometimes you just have to MAKE it happen. Knitted acorns, 2 cm felted balls from craft store. Continue reading

Dear Hitofude, I'm sorry I didn't 'feature' you on the 'Yarnalong' yesterday. I know you're worried. You are right. There IS a lot of competition for attention around this household lately. Maybe a bit too much. Umaro found himself out of hibernation and kept me company though a couple of... Continue reading

In an effort to once again coordinate my knitting with my book cover (just kidding), I cast on another pew shawl for our church needlearts ministry. It's a boring, uninspiring 3 x 3 double moss pattern, using large(r) needles that I pretty much despise. The one saving grace is that... Continue reading

I started Hitofude last week, finished three repeats on chart one, and shifted my love to Funky Grandpa. I know. I'm fickled with my sweater-love this season. Two sweaters on the needles already. This really is so unlike my usual sweater-knitting habit....of waiting until the first really cold day to... Continue reading

I couldn't leave him like this. (well, I HAD left him like that for months....adding a body part to the pile as I finished it, but once the parts were all there....) At first, I thought I could just do the head. That was too creepy having a 'Chucky'-like stray... Continue reading

Does this little guy look just a teeny bit queasy? a tad bloated? He's just consumed an entire starfish. (You may be asking why there was a starfish setting out on our back patio---in the heartland of America--hundreds of miles from the coast? Long, uninteresting story. It didn't need to...

I've finished the book....The Road by Cormac McCarthy...since I took the picture. Haunting. Dark. Terrorizing. Heartbreaking. A love story. It tears at your heart. I may never recover from it. No wonder it has received so many accolades since it was written in 2006. (The Pulitzer Prize, James Tait Black... Continue reading

oh, my----I can't let a day go by without a wee bit of knitting somewhere! (those stolen hours/minutes really add up, you know!!!) I think you are just moving towards that 'nesting' part of the I must nest all year long.

In my kitchen: Yes, this IS last week's blueberry buckle, although it IS this week's picture of it, which shows how long it will keep. Trust me, it's still moist and yummy. I know because I ate that whole big piece and left Freddy only a couple crumbs. (hee hee....he... Continue reading

and I copycatted Tien (autumngeisha)....I'm finding that wool felts just the slightest when you put an iced drink on it and it gets damp. Improves with use!!!
