Unraveled Wednesday, September 20

I have about 25 rows to go and Ponchetta will be done. Maybe today? Depending on how I do on my list, that is a real possibility for this afternoon! Up next for knitting? I have some finishes to queue up. Like some charity knitting, Laura Aylor's Summer Ripples, and a...

Randomly, Tuesday

Even though the weather is all summer-y here again, each day there are more red leaves on my burning bushes. It's as if they are reminding me that no matter what the thermometer says autumn is THURSDAY! You are welcome for that bit of news… There was a bit of...

Weekending

The weekend was full, there was some happy houring, some football watching, and some yard working. And, yes, there was some knitting. I have about 4 inches to go on Ponchetta...which I think will pair nicely with the Mountain of Laundry that awaits me! Happy Monday...

It’s Friday! Ready to get your knit on?

The knitting is inching along nicely. I have about 7 more inches to go on the body of Ponchetta. I finished the third season of Hinterland yesterday, which gave me about 3 inches of quality knitting time! I am not sure how much knitting time there will be this...

Three on Thursday, September 14

Think Write Thursday has faded into the sunset of summer. While this makes me the tiniest bit sad (like I am with the passing of summer) I agree with Carole that it was beginning to be too much work and not great participation! That being said, I might have had a...

Unraveled Wednesday, September 13

I have been plugging away at my Ponchetta, but I have miles to go yet. Sigh. The rows are long but it is good "sit down and watch television" knitting. I have put aside Laura Aylor's MKAL aside to get it done. Hopefully some focused knitting will have success! AND… I...

A different kind of stitching

I spent most of the day yesterday deconstructing several of Steve's old t-shirts. I am positive that starting with fabric would be much simpler but, I would be more concerned with making mistakes than I am with these shirts! And, today the task of putting them back...

Monday? Already?

The weekend seems like a blur of activity, and looking back I am wondering what the heck I got done! Lots of "stuff" not much accomplished. One thing is for certain, dark and cold Monday mornings are not the best way to start a week and, this morning seemed extra dark...

Hello Fall?

So, as I previously mentioned, it seems that Autumn turned the lights out on Summer and is here to stay. Yesterday it was incredibly chilly and today is even more so. You know, it's bundle up weather, sweater and all! And this cool weather reminds me that I have some...

The List

This week's Think Write Thursday discussion with Carole gave birth to this week's topic of discussion: We're starting to feel like this whole Think Write Thursday thing isn't going so well. Participation isn't high and it's been dropping off steadily for the last...

Unraveled Wednesday, September 6

September, oh boy. And, the weather here has been incredibly fall-like. It is almost as if someone flipped the switch on summer. Boo hoo! And, all this cool weather means I have sweaters on the brain and that's all I really want to knit! But, I have these projects I...

August Blues

Another month is over and it was a very good month for stitching! My theme was entirely based on the skies of August – deep blues, sometimes grey, sometimes cloud filled, and each spectacular! No new techniques this month but more layered fabrics. Lots of running...

Things to do on Labor Day

Already accomplished this morning: move things to Steve's new office and then a nice walk around the northside. Followed by these interesting possibilities: Free Craftsy Day – all classes, all day, free viewing! Pickle Tomatoes? And, there will be knitting, of course!...

Cover All!

Happy Friday, Gentle Readers! And, Welcome September – okay, maybe not welcome – it is just 50 degrees out this morning and decidedly fall like. Brrrr! August closed out my summer reading on an incredible high point. I finished The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and...

Hello, September

This week's Think Write Thursday topic is to write a post with the title "Hello, September" Since I began my stitching journey in January, nothing is quite as exciting as the start of a new month. It is a blank canvas laying before me filled with infinite...

Unraveled Wednesday, August 30

And, with a finished object! Yes, Nekia is off the needles! She does need a little Soak™ wash and some ends woven in, but she is completed! I did have to do a bit of unraveling at the neckline to get the stitches to lay nicely, but I figured it out and they went much...

August Joy

Oh, August… It seems like you were just getting started, and now are too soon over. However, in your racing days, there were so many moments of joy. The abundance of tomatoes and raspberries from my garden, it has been such an incredibly good year for tomato and...

Oh, Monday

This week I have a few things that I must finish that have been at the top of my procrastination list for some time. Sadly, there are plenty of things I procrastinate over but these things are especially procrastination worthy and I am not looking forward to them at...
