There may be more later today, butt…

I wanted to apologize to Suzanne for calling her Suzi throughout my laceswap post. I love her and she got everything perfect and I didn’t look closely enough to see that even though her website is suziknits she always signs Suzanne. Not that she complained or anything. She’s lovely…I’m a dork.

My Sister’s Got A Blog

My one sister is 14 months younger than me. She’s always been jealous of me. O.K. maybe that was the other way around but I always like to put my own spin on history. Anyway, she made herself a blog. It’s a knitting blog but she doesn’t knit. My niece knits. She’s fabulous at it. So the blog is about […]

A Boy And My Dog

. I have no new knitting content due to the never-ending shawl. Maybe tomorrow I’ll post another progress picture. I don’t see much difference but maybe if I post a couple of pictures next to each other we can all feel better. This is what we found after dinner last night. Penny wasn’t put into her crate by any of […]

Cute and Chaotic

O.K. let’s start with the cute. I always like to start with the cute since I am surrounded by chaos. Chelsea was at work when this picture was taken and that’s where she is right now so I’ll have to add her later so there are no hurt feelings. This is Ryan on his bike. Notice the placement of the […]

Help Wanted….

but I don’t have any money to pay. Seriously. I have been playing around with this blogger stuff for a little while now. I don’t think I’m a stupid girl but sometimes this computer language doesn’t make sense to me. o.k. it almost never makes sense to me. I would like to put some of this cute little buttons on […]

And Again I Am Broke

I saw this backpack last year at Rhinebeck. It wasn’t this fabric. I loved the style but didn’t like what they had at their booth – Ellen’s 1/2 Pint Farm that is. So I ordered one in June. Shortly after I got it my friend found out she was moving so I loaded the pack up with a pattern, some […]

It’s A Wash

Thanks to Betty I learned how to wash fine wool – this happens to be cormo – without wrecking the whole batch. I’ve taken pictures of my process to show. I made envelopes from bridal tulle and placed a thin layer of wool along the center length of the tulle. I fold the tulle then in thirds so that the […]

But you do get along with both sexes.You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don’t actively fight them.You’re just you. You don’t try to be what people expect you to be.
