It has been a slow making week here at Casa del KatKnits... but the three tubes have been joined which seems like a good thing...and it is! It means I am closer to a finished sweater, but it also means I have monstrously long rounds to knit... monstrously long! But I...

Summer Slow Down continues  despite the cooler temps and some really good "soaking" rains we've had over the last day. Truthfully, it was a welcome change from 90+ degree days. I understand that our heatwave was nothing compared to what many are experiencing, but...

“How did it get so late so soon?” ― Dr. Seuss Today I am one with Dr. Seuss. It is the last Friday in June... and all I can do is wonder where the heck the month went? But it is still June for a few more seconds and so let's slow down and savor some things that stood...

Greetings Gentle Readers! Apparently sofa's have a great desire for AirPods...and yes, I found them deep inside in a place I did not know my sofa had. I also found one pen and, curiously, just one stitch marker. The Single Stitch Marker surprises me because I am very...

Bring (the official start of) summer and a very full week. I have a list which includes the mundane that I don't need a list to remember to do, but the joy of crossing things off inspires me to always include the mundane. It includes finding a new physician... never,...

I want to close this week out with a list of Good Things that I thought you might find some of them enrich your days as well. All these things all fit well with my LSD Mantra (Learning to Slow Down) for the summer. Listening things are probably the best part of my...

“LSD stands out for learning to slow down.” ― Santosh Kalwar Yes, this is my mantra for the remainder of the summer. Life in the slow lane... just feels good. In pre-slow times, I would have slammed this tunic out (with a mistake or ten because speed) and moved on to...

“Most of the dandelions had changed from suns into moons.” ― Vladimir Nabokov For a long month, May seemed over before it began! Likewise... holy cow it seems like all we did was drink! (Perhaps that is why the month flew by? lol) Anyways......

Winston provided me with my Hat Review... and I am going to make those brims just a wee bit narrower so he can see, but still be shaded from the sunshine! But... did you ever see anything cuter than Winston in hats? Me either! LOL This second half of the week I will...

Stitching up the week | 6.4.21

Greetings, Gentle Readers. It's been a short-long week in my house. Short in the days which fairly flew by... long in the nights with a raging bout of insomnia that has lasted far too long. Which brings me to this morning where I find myself with a severe case of...

Greetings Unravelers! Welcome to June! Excuse me while I continue doing the dance of joy over my Marled Very-Short-Sleeved Purl Strings. I am in love and think that the solution for "not enough yarn" was the best accident ever! I predict this will get oodles of use...
