TGIF | 9.28.18

Happy Friday, everyone! We made it through another week and while my list is not entirely finished this morning (I hope yours is!), I am confident that it will be done by the days end! And, so with that list in hand, I am doing a TGIF post today – sans links…and I am...

Thursday Thoughts

Thursday Thoughts

Asking women why they didn't report their sexual assault right away is akin to asking someone why they didn't report their own kidnapping - Aparna Nancherla Today, my thoughts are with Dr. Christine Basley Ford as she testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee...

Unraveled Wednesday | 9.26.18

And, with that – September is practically over – and at warp speed, too! My knitting this week has been focused on blanket layout and assembly. Holy pick up a million stitches, Knitters! Yeah…and then there will be the ends to weave in. I decided not to fuss around...

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn

Almost as if a switch was flipped, the temperature on Friday went from almost 90 to the 50's overnight ushering in a most autumnal-like weekend.  And, the weather man has said we won't be seeing anymore 80-degree days until next year. That means just one thing, Gentle...

Countdown Friday’s

Countdown Friday’s

Why is it that approaching vacation time equals diminishing brain function? Or am I the only person experiencing this phenomenon? And, it seems all things are conspiring to remind me that vacation is coming! Airbnb sent a reminder this morning… just in case I was not...

It is not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about? Henry David Thoreau This week it is all about redefining busy. Thing One: Thanks to Kym, I am focusing on looking at the busyness in my life and I am well into week two of The Busy...

The knitting this week is slow and easy but sadly, I am not at all closer to that 15" mark on Tegna (which, in light of Lene unknitting and then finishing her sweater dress, I think I should be highly embarrassed by this fact!) However, I pinned out the 15" length on...

Tuesday’s are for poetry | 9.18.18

I have been trying to up my poetry reading this year and this month brings me to the poetry of Michael Longley – a very prolific poet and I am fortunate that my library has a collection of his works. It has been fascinating to read bits and pieces of his work each...

On a Random Monday | 9.17.18

The Sedum is just gorgeous this year and I caught this lovely little bee in my photos last week. Summer was full on again over the weekend, which I will count as a blessing especially with the rain we are having today. But, for all the summer weather it was a weekend...

Fiber Friday | 9.14.18

And just like that, another week draws to a close. Is it just me, or does this month seem to be moving a warp speed?? I think I have finally found the reason to have multiple projects going at once… yes, it's true! I knit a few more rounds on my Stripey sweater and...

I had a moment of panic this morning when I looked at the calendar and realized that we are almost midway though September! Here are some of the things that are on my list this week! Thing One: The summer months were so wonderful, and the extended daylight made it so...

This week, the knitting is creative. All those pretty colors will become a stripey sweater! Yes, I did some knitty maths and then just started knitting. We shall see how this will work out! Sadly, I think I have a bit of unraveling to do… the beige yarn is not...

A Rather Soggy Monday

A Rather Soggy Monday

It was such a full weekend… there was some closet cleaning, some sorting, and more closet cleaning and more sorting. There was some football and there was also lots of cooking! Cooler temps finally arrived!! Hello Chili! And, oven-roasted chicken! And, cake! And, yes…...

Fiber Friday | 9.7.18

Round and round and round, and the knitting grows. Slowly, but it does grow! I also cast on Nymphalidea yesterday. I had a ball of Zauberball and some Lorna's Lace sock yarn that are perfect for it. I have memorized the super easy pattern, and this will be come my...

Three on Thursday | 9.6.18

Recently, Kym shared some excellent inspiration about checking in on your year. These were excellent reminders for me and have me thinking about some needed "course corrections" to move me back on track. It is funny how easy it is to think you are on track but when...

Greetings, Unravelers and Happy September! I have a finished Strokkur to share with you today however, I think it will be some time before I am wearing this sweater! I loved the construction of this sweater – it had two segments of short rows before and after the...
