Get ready for adorableness.
Georgette made these booties using a kit she bought during their recent trip to New Zealand.
We met for Common Threads at Margareth's new place. She has moved in with her fiancée. The house is really nice. …Continue
I’m finally wearing my Dogwood Blossoms cardigan!
Details of my version of this cardigan are here.
Not to be outdone, Rocky is wearing…Continue
This week brought this wonderful book into my life, Tudor Roses (2013 edition) by Alice Starmore.
It's a reworking of the 1998 book of the same name, but with the sweaters…Continue
I have been swamped with work and other responsibilities. I have gotten a little work in on a sweater, a pair of socks and some mittens, but progress has been slow. Tonight I had an epiphany. It occurred while reading a bedtime story to my DD. I had bought the particular book on my nook, so I had not browsed the whole thing prior to purchase. The villain was revealed to be a knitting granny who wields naughty knitting needles. My DD turned to me and said. "You love to knit." I am not…Continue
We drove through the rain this week to reach Vintage Stitchers, which met on Thursday.
We had lots of show-and-tell. Here's Carol's 1600 quilt. Here's the backing.…Continue
Now that the film festival is over, it's time for lots of snow. It's a good time to stay indoors and quilt or knit.
My "wow" for this week has to be Julie's Double Wedding Ring quilt, which she designed for her parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Julie used pillow cases for the photos because of the…Continue
Lynda has finished her Dogwood Blossoms!
She's the first one in our group of four or so to finish it. She wore it to our Common Threads meeting on Thursday. Mine is close to finished (has been for a long time), and I plan to get it done during the Ravellenic Games.
Here is the…Continue
I can't believe we are at the end of January already. I hate the winter, but don't like wishing life away. It goes past far to quickly- now I'm older.
I haven't quite finished my cardigan, just the button bands to do. My iron broke down just after Christmas and I've been trying to fix it. I can't. It is a steam generator iron and I…Continue

The official Sundance Film Festival is over for this year.
DH and I still have one volunteer shift to do tonight. After the festival is over, Sundance puts on two free screenings of one or two of the best films. We're working that. Then it's all over for another year. While watching the lobby…Continue
Sundance has taken up a lot of my time this week. We start each shift with a meeting. Here are some of my fellow volunteers at the meeting.
Sunday was especially time-consuming. The last film Sunday night was three hours long, which meant I got home at nearly 2:00 AM! I have seen three…Continue

I'm really, really, trying to finish up some UFOs before starting any new projects. However, with two grandsons coming up on second birthdays, I'm under the gun to make two I-spy quilts.
This week I started cutting out 4.5" squares for both quilts. So far, I have 31 cut for each. I need 25 more. I…Continue
From Wisconsin, we drove 10 hours to Peru, Indiana, just north of Kokomo to visit DS1 and DDIL1.
DS1 and DDIL1 had her grandkids to visit, so it was a full house, with four adults, three kids and four dogs. The kids have grown up a lot since we saw them last. We visited the library in Peru to get…Continue
Happy New Year to everyone. I hope 2014 will be a good one. I lost my father last year and my husband was quite poorly for a while, so I am glad to say goodbye to 2013.
I shall knit a cowl in a KAL Group on Ravelry. I am just waiting for the wool to arrive. A new baby is expected in February. Not in the family, but a friend. …Continue

We had a great Christmas visit in Wisconsin.
It was a white Christmas, and when it wasn't too cold, we had some play time.
The presents were lovely. For example, here's my Fabric Haul, part one. (More coming during a shopping trip to Kokomo/Indianapolis.)…Continue
After a lovely Christmas with number one son, I am back home and deciding what colour to choose for my cowl that I will start in the New Year. I didn't get any wool for Christmas and no gift cards either. I didn't expect any, so wasn't disappointed.
I started knitting myself a cardigan two days before Christmas with wool from my stash…Continue

Happy Holidays Everybody!
I know...i know it's been a while since my last post but these past couple of weeks has been crazy/hectic/sense-of-contentment/exciting. Remember in my last post I was speed knitting 7 hats? For some reason that turns into 13 (and counting). Now all of the guys from my studio at school are really warm as we have been experiencing some nasty weather here in New York. I am not gonna post all of the…
