This really is a book review. I'm in a fun, new book club....and we decided that every few months we would read a cooking/memoir book, each chose a recipe to make, and gather for dinner to discuss the book. (In between cooking months, we're just an ordinary book club.) My... Continue reading

What did I ever do to deserve a friend like this? This friend has been on a purging binge. I know how those go. I've been on those myself---many times. If you ever think you are done downsizing/cleaning out/throwing out/reorganizing, think again. And remember.....Priorities Change! I should know. Many (many... Continue reading

I walked into work the other day and got bowled over by this cute little vest my friend was wearing. To be honest, I'm often bowled over by her outfits. I love her aesthetic...and she kindly returns the compliment. The fact that she's about 15 sizes smaller than I am... Continue reading

Joji Locatelli's Three-color cashmere cowl. OK. So mine isn't cashmere. But I don't think I could love the results more even if it was. A long (I thought too long) tube, that really is rather perfect in every way. It's rather lightweight, and I love the splash of color you... Continue reading

I just closed the cover on Carlos Eire's memoir of his early years in Cuba before Castro, Waiting for Snow in Havana---and couldn't boogey fast enough to the computer* to order Learning to Die in Miami (the sequel). It's not here yet. I needed a 'tweener' book. I seem to... Continue reading

I've been in one of those rearranging, purging, cleaning, simplifying kinds of moods. I've been doing pretty good until I got in the knitting room. Here rests the bowl with sock yarn leftovers. I think there is another sock blanket started in there someplace, but honestly---who needs four of them?... Continue reading

I reminded Mom that it was time to write a Yarnalong post. (She was out of town last week and missed. I told her she can't miss two weeks in a row...I think it's a law, or something.) She said it is too hot to do anything but sit in... Continue reading

It was hot. Midsummer, dog-days-of-summer kind of hot, and humid, and did I say, HOT? Have I ever told you how much I hate summer? Yeah, I thought so. I really, really hate it. I water the plants just after daybreak, and wish them well the rest of the day.... Continue reading

Interlude knit: /'in(t)er,lood/ /nit/ a piece of knitting created quickly while more time-consuming works are on the needles; an overnight wonder That pretty much sums up this quick little linen top.

I was rather happy with my choices...two small, portable, engaging sock projects and a larger, grey one. Something for any mood. And then....a friend dropped by yesterday, asking for an opinion on her latest project. I agreed with her that the yarn she was using wasn't right for this. This... Continue reading
