Fiber Friday | 4.20.18

You guys!!! My Lunar Phases is finished!! I just love how this all came together and for once I am entirely enthralled with my color choices! Kudos to Larissa Brown for her knitting ingenuity! This was a true mystery up to the last clue. I had no idea how it would all...

Three on Thursday | 4.19.18

i·ro·ny noun • a state of affairs or an even that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result. Thing One: Tax Day Reprieve Thing Two: The Deciding Vote Thing Three: Making your last day on the job count There you have it… my Ironic...

Unraveled Wednesday | 4.18.18

No unraveling here this week, just long rows of knitting as I have joined all the sections of my Lunar Phases together. These rows require counting and keeping track of where you are, but it is rhythmic and fun knitting as I see it growing, albeit slowly! I am a...

If it’s Tuesday…

I can guarantee it is snowing. These fragile blossoms that bobbed gently in the winds, today bravely hold snow. Winter and Spring continue to battle, and Spring's weekend victory has been usurped by a wintry blast. But, perhaps the best balm is a bit of poetry: Spring...

Monday is for…

Resting! It was a weekend full of lots of work; trimming, raking, and bagging umpteen bags of yard debris is hard work! By Sunday night, my body was complaining loudly but, we are ready for spring (even though winter is not entirely done yet…) Today I am going to...

Fiber Friday the Thirteenth

Apparently, Mother Nature has decided that we will go directly from winter to summer… yep, temps in the upper 70's around here this weekend. But, never fear… winter returns on Monday. Really, I can't make this stuff up as you can see from my Dark Sky™ forecast… It...

Three on Thursday, Poetry

April is National Poetry Month and today I am sharing with you three poems that I frequently think of or read. Poems that were introduced to me by my grandfather, poems I discovered on my own, and poems that I discovered through you… Poem One: Purple Martins by Carl...

Unraveled Wednesday | 4.11.18

One of my absolute favorite things about any knitting project is the final step…blocking. From the yarn blooming, to the stitches evening out, to the wonder that happens when you pin out a garment – for me this is the magic of knitting. I have been secretly working on...

Tiny Moment Tuesday | 4.10.18

Sometimes, those tiny moments all add up to an overwhelming moment that makes you stop and contemplate how you got there… Last week was one of those weeks. It all began with this very simple devotion from Henri Nouwen. Simple, but impactful…Giving and Receiving. I am...

How is it Monday already…

…and why is it snowing again??? At 5PM last night, Steve said to me how is it Sunday night already? Where did the weekend go? I could have used at least one more weekend day, or maybe two! Doesn't a 3-day work week sound amazing? Good things about the weekend: The...

A Nebby Fiber Friday

There is so much to share today, I don't know where to begin! First up… Cluaranach, she is finished! Now begins this great internal debate about blocking her. I am of the mindset this morning that I really don't want to lose all the glorious texture. She needs a bit...

Three on Thursday | 4.5.18

Today's things are a "mixed bag" … Thing One: In the WTF Category Thing Two: I have just 18 rows to go on my Cluaranach! Well, 19 if you count my kitchner row… Thing Three: I have not gotten a hair cut in 8 months, but all that ends today! Yes, I have an appointment...

Unraveled Wednesday | 4.4.18

The knitting continues, steady and slow. I have enough yarn to do one more repeat on each side and then the joining begins! I am also knitting my Lunar Phases MKAL, but I am refraining from sharing "spoilers" until it is done. Confession time, I have absolutely no...

Tiny Moment Tuesday | 4.3.18

Yellow daffodils Bring sunshine on fragile stems On grey, rainy days Steve is back at work today, and #The100DayProject begins today. For me that means 100 days of movement, and yes, even on grey rainy days! I hope your Tuesday, like mine, finds you back to your...

Mother Nature, Supreme Jokester

This is what we woke up to this morning. Mother Nature apparently did not realize that yesterday was April Fool's Day, however, weekending continues as Steve has today off for his birthday! But, maybe the joke is on her because tomorrow it it supposed to be in the...

Fiber Friday | 3.30.18

First things first! The final round of voting is open! Mary had casually mentioned the idea of knitting the Final Four...which I think is a brilliant! Seeing the wonderful patterns that made the final four, this idea has some merit. Who is interested? Tonight, clue...

Three on Thursday | 3.29.18

The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful! e.e. cummings I am desperately trying to see my back yard through the lens of cummings, so today I am sharing three good things about the rain! Thing One: After several of moderately warm and rainy days, my forsythia is...

Unraveled Wednesday | 3.28.18

Greetings, Unravelers! While I would love to say that it is all knitting and reading – all the time here, sometimes life interrupts that scheme. This is one of those weeks with lots of busy-ness with Easter prep. Shopping to do, things to ship, meals to plan...in all...
