Fiber Friday | 6.22.18

Rage knitting is becoming a thing, thanks to the efforts of the current regime in the White House. That rage makes seed stitch just fly and the collar of my Vodka Lemonade is done, and I am working my way though the raglan increases. It's a good thing there is no...

Welcome Summer! And, my three things today are songs that no matter what season I hear them in, I am thrown back to the warm days of summer. I also spent a few minutes creating a little Summer Songs playlist on Spotify, you are welcome to follow it! The Lovin'...

Unraveled Wednesday | 6.20.18

Greetings Unravelers! This is the week for finished objects! Yes, Eavesdrop is done! This was a great knit – a well-written pattern with video helps for those less often used knitting techniques, and the end result is a very wearable sweater with great little details....

I don't care what anybody says: Nothing is better than a tomato you grow. There's something about it that's different than a tomato you can buy. It's a great thing. ~ Tom Vilsack Mr. Vilsack is so right. There is not one thing on this earth that tastes better than a...

Fly by Weekending

It was one of those weekends that moved at warp speed, and before we knew it Sunday night was upon us with a new week was looming on the horizon. I did manage to finish my Eavesdrop Sweater…tee-shirt on Friday night! Woo! That means it got a nice wash and a bit of...

Fiber Friday | 6.15.18

I got to the "try on and see" point with my Eavesdrop last night and I think it needs another inch of length…and so I knit on. But!! The end is near! This weekend has no long list of things to get done, but rather a manageable list. You know, the kind of list that...

I don't mean to be Debbie Downer for today's Three Things, but I cannot be silent on this. My three things today are just one huge thing that has been weighing heavily on my mind and my heart over the past weeks. May 7 Sessions gave a speech that was more than a...

Unraveled Wednesday | 6.13.18

Greetings Unravelers! Eavesdrop slowly grows and I am almost ready for my last skein...which means I have about 2 inches to go to the "recommended length"! I am not sure it will be quite long enough, but I will try it on when I have this skein done and see what I...

Tiny Moment Tuesday | 6.12.18

In my mind's eye, I visualize how a particular… sight and feeling will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph. It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice. - Ansel Adams [foogallery...

Weekending | 6.11.18

Sometimes a closer inspection reveals beautiful detail like my feeble macro attempts with the big camera this weekend, although there was a small Cabbage White butterfly that kindly volunteered for me! And, sometimes a closer inspection reveals nothing new, just the...

Fiber Friday | 6.8.18

I don't know if it felt this way for you, but this week just flew by for me! It was a week with lots of outside activity and not much done at all inside. I hope to remedy that today, although I should work outside a bit more this morning because we have rain showers...

Three on Thursday | 6.7.18

Today's things have nothing to do with each other. Thing One: Yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. I can't help but wonder what kind of nation we would be if he had not been killed and I thought his ability to empathize with...

Did you ever have moments in your knitting when you feel like you are not making any headway? This is that time for me in my Eavesdrop sweater… I am knitting but it is slow going, or so it seems. But, I am on the fourth skein and I only have 2 more to go so if I...

Tiny Moment Tuesday | 6.5.18

City living has its perks, but it also has its drawbacks. One of those drawbacks is ambient light at night, which makes seeing stars a challenge! When I read this poem by Derek Walcott, I was carried back to my childhood and memories of seeing that last star boldly...

Weekending | 6.4.18

I am not sure one could pack more into a regular weekend than I did this weekend! I re-purposed 2 skirts into Esme tops. This was surprisingly super quick, and I am feeling most accomplished for reusing unworn garments into something I will wear. The pile of unworn...

Fiddly Bits

I am now in the "easy flow" of Eavesdrop, I have finished the sequence parts, the increase parts, and the Horizontal Stitch parts! I will just say that horizontal stitching with linen is not something for the faint of heart! I got it done, but it too the better part...

Three on Thursday | 5.31.18

Last Thursday we got our vegetable gardens all planted. It was a long day's work, but it was a very good distraction so the worry about Sherman did not overwhelm me. It got me thinking about things I do to avoid being overwhelmed by something else. Okay, confession...

Unraveled Wednesday | 5.30.18

The knitting on Eavesdrop continues. I know you will find this hard to believe, but I am not to the sleeve divide yet! I barely knit over the weekend…shocking I know! However, yesterday I worked on getting back on track and this morning I will be taking it off the...
