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…

Wishing you all peace on Earth...
...and the best of holiday joys with family and friends, good food and music!
19th December and I am almost ready for the big day.
Christmas tree is now in place and all decorated with lights and baubles. It is not as big as we used to have with only hubby and me to look at it, we have kept it smaller. It has a lovely shape and looks nice.…Continue

Soren's Green Pastures cardigan is progressing nicely. It should be ready for Christmas or shortly after.
It doesn't look too different from the same stage of Daphne's, although it's a size smaller. …Continue
As Christmas looms nearer I have managed to collect a Christmas Tree and it is outside waiting to come in and be decorated. Good job I got one now because the shops are beginning to sell out.
I am busy knitting away; a Cardigan for Catherine. I want it long to her skirt length so she can feel all cosy in it and maybe use is a coat. A…Continue

It's been a hard week in the mountains of Utah. The weather was part of it.
That was taken Wednesday. We had several more inches over the weekend. I had to turn off the alerts on my weather app, because it kept waking me up at night and annoying me during the daytime. (As if I couldn't just…Continue
What a week! Soren and his entourage came for Thanksgiving, since we won't be able to be together for Christmas this year.
I spent most of the week cooking and cleaning. The kids arrived Wednesday night, and we had Thanksgiving dinner early in the evening on Thanksgiving. The dinner…Continue
I know it's been a while since my last post. But i have been super busy with schools as the semester is about to finish.
That being said, this Thanksgiving weekend is perfect for some relaxing time and knitting.
My Oh-so-expanding-Christmas-knitting list is getting lonnnnnnnnnger. I promised to all of the guys at the percussion studio for some hats. As the matter of fact over this weekend, I finished two hats already and i am dying to post the pictures here but i want…Continue
It was a busy week, as usual, The little rug from my weaving class came off the loom. It's almost finished. I still need to decide the treatment for the fringe. Here's the front.
The back is the same as the front, except that the colors are reversed, and the clasps show up. You might remember from last week…Continue
