My sister has two good dogs, wait, GREAT dogs! Not only are their dispositions shining examples of what their breeds should be (Maggie is a Labrador retriever and Cash is a German shepherd), they are good around knitting. Remember Alfred and his fascination with my yarn? Naughty dog. Sadly, Alfie is no longer with us […]Read More Two Good Dogs
Yeah, know posts have been sparse lately, and they probably will continue to be so for the week or so, too. I was in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA last week for an annual gathering of friends from around the country. We had a great time! As usual, I spent my downtime knitting and committing […]Read More Random Acts of Knitting
Yep, an off topic post. I got a root canal on Monday. It wasn’t too bad, but I really don’t want to get another one. I had been feeling pain in my jaw since about last Thursday. I kept telling myself that it was just sinus pain, even when it didn’t feel like sinus pain. […]Read More Off Topic: Got a Root Canal
I want to cross-post from my hooping blog, Jennabee Hoops, that I will be at the Ephrata Arts and Crafts Fest on Saturday, September 10, 2016 from 9am-3pm promoting hooping, but I will also have some lovely handmade things, besides handmade hoops, for sale. If you are in the area, I’d love to see you […]Read More Ephrata Arts and Crafts Fest
I have finished knitting my Taiyo Shawl, and now it’s blocking time! Time to get out the mats, pins, and wool wash. I’m anxious to see how this piece’s lace section open up. Unfortunately, I ran out of the Taiyo yarn about 2/3 of the way through. I should know better by now, but the […]Read More Taiyo Shawl: Blocking Time!
I love Noro yarns. I love the funky colorways and the variations in the yarn itself. I know it’s pricey, but I get it about once a year as a treat for myself. This year, it’s the Noro Taiyo Sock yarn (that is being discontinued by the way) that I bought at the Ball & […]Read More WIP: Taiyo Sock Sleeveheart Shawl
I did something that I hadn’t done for a long time last Thursday; I went to a local yarn store! I ended up at Ball & Skein in Brickerville, PA, which I have enjoyed going to before. Above is what I got. First, I got two balls for the Frog Tree Yarns suri fingering weight […]Read More Wednesday Stash Flash!
I was recently in a dance recital, and my partner and I for one of the numbers I were in needed something for our hair. We decided to wear black and red, and our choreographer suggested pretty fascintors. I thought, hey, I can make those! So I did. Feathery fascinators are fun to make, and […]Read More Feathery Fascinators
Yup! We did! My husband Sam and I bought our first house on Friday. It was a quite a long process to get there, but we did it! Settlement wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be. It was a lot of signing, a lot of explanations by the settlement agent as to what […]Read More So, we bought a house.
Yup. I’m playing Pokémon GO. I caught some special Pokémon this morning, and decided to see if Ravelry had any special knitting patterns pertaining to the pocket monster I caught. I was in luck! I had a very productive Pokémon GO session. Sam, my DH, was driving, and I managed to catch a Pikachu, Poliwag, […]Read More Pokémon GO and Knitting
