Happy New Year, Dear Unravelers! In the "Dead Zone" that is the week between Christmas and New Years I did some "retail therapy" with Miss Babs. Why, you ask, could I need more yarn?!? Well, suffice it that it felt right and so I did it! My year of making is going to...

On my way to full | 1.3.22

Early in 2021... when I really wanted to bail on release...I began to ponder a new word and have had a bit of a running list for most of 2021. Despite adding words to my list, I persevered with release but once the 4th quarter arrived I began thinking in earnest about...

Unraveled Wednesday | 12.29.21

First... my final finish for 2021... Leave Gnome Stone Unturned... aka Gnombleberry and baby Gnewt! Now onto my Year in Review Post! Ha! It has been a much calmer year for making. I did not feel any compelling urge to knit.all.the.things. And although I do still have...

Release | December 2021

Release | December 2021

I spent December as I began the year...in a struggle with this word. But rather than the struggle of unpacking what needed to be released, the struggle this month is in the packing away of release. Because I think release is not a word I can just pack away and move on...

Monday Poetry | 12.27.21

Happy Birthday to me! Today begins my 61st year! 61 years brings lots of retrospection and thinking about birthdays of long ago. When I was a child, it almost always seemed to snow on my birthday and I loved it so much! I have also been thinking about Christmas...

Unraveled Wednesday | 12.22.21

(Sorry this post is so late but I entirely forgot to get a photo yesterday while it was light out!) I have a finished hat and am working towards a finished second sock! However, this week I thought I'd answer the question that Jane had about knitting with a strand of...

There are times when hindsight gives a clarity that is astounding... I should have voted with the doctor for stitches rather than voting for no stitches. Her wisdom has been so correct...she gave me two scenarios: One: get stitches, likely lose my nail, but my finger...

I wish I could tell you that my making was on fire... but instead I have to tell you that I have mucked up my making but good. Monday afternoon I had a wee accident (okay, maybe not so tiny) with a bread knife... which meant I spent some time in urgent care. The good...

Monday Poetry | 12.13.21

When it seems like the world is collapsing in on itself and bad news is all around, poetry provides a respite that nothing else can. The bird that came to my mind as I read Mary Oliver's poem was a Cedar Waxwing with their distinctive white outline around their eyes....

To Whom It May Concern | 12.10.21

It's been a week, hasn't it? Is it just me and does it feel like we are racing on to mid-December, except that December just began?! Fortunately, the mailbag has a letter or two to share! Dear December Weather: Mild is nice... in January, but I really like wintry...

Unraveled Wednesday | 12.8.21

This week has all been about "bite sized bits of knitting" in my house... you know, the things that are easy to pick up and put down. I have the attention span of a gnat these days and so I am shuffling between the heel flap of a sock, the ribbing of a hat brim (sorry...

I thought that for the month of December, it might be nice to spend Monday's with a bit of poetry. I hope you find this a lovely way to start your week! Winter Trees BY WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS All the complicated details of the attiring and the disattiring are...

TGIF | 12.3.21

Oh Friday... I am so glad you are here and bringing this week to a close. I tried to write letters this week, but gave up and decided a bit of TGIF was more in order. Thinking about — Roe vs Wade and Sonia Sotomayor... specifically these words: “Will this institution...

I love palindrome days... and this is one of those days! (See how I find joy in the little things? lol) Anyways... THE Advent Calendar arrived! And they LOVE it! I am not sure who loves it most though... Heidi or the kids! (And Olivia will have a Nana-made Advent...

I want to drown in my tears, And my tears are my prayers. ― Luffina Lourduraj Silly, silly me in thinking that I was done with release...  because it is certainly not done with me! This month I got to put into practice all that I have learned over the past year –...

Greetings Unraveler's! First up, I really LOVED all your answers to Monday Questions! My mouth was absolutely watering... I had to look up Watergate Salad (which I had never, ever even heard of before - much less eat!) and I am now very eager for the EATING to begin!...

Monday Questions | 11.22.21

It's the Monday before Thanksgiving... do you have your lists ready? Or do you just have a singular list? Or do you have no list (and just a super brain) and have no issue remembering all the things to do this week!? Yes, I noted that I asked three rapid fire...

A couple of weeks ago, Bonny wrote some letters... they were so good! (And so inspiring!) I thought it might be fun to write a letter or two this week! Thank you Bonny for inspiring me! (I see that she wrote some more letters this week as well!) Dear Neighbor's With...
