I am not Whinebecking.

I have wanted to go to Rhinebeck for many years now.  It’s in upstate New York, about a half-day drive from here in Central Merlin, but finding a place to stay, even if sharing it with others, is a bit problematic.  Also, it usually falls on or near the weekend of the Columbia Sip ‘n…

Another quick one…

And I mean quick – in ten minutes I have to change for court and meet up with a colleague for whom I am covering while she has to be elsewhere.  Anyway, thought I’d do a quick update on projects and life. As the picture above shows, I just barely started on a cowl -and…

Runs, Hits and Errors…

I don’t have a picture of the progress made on the Rhapsody in Cables sweater, but progress I’ve made.  Unfortunately, it was made at the expense of much-needed sleep.  I simply could not sleep last night, so I figured if I stayed up knitting, I’d eventually get tired, but for some reason, I just kept…

Decisions Decisions!

Remember when last I left you, dear 2.5 readers, I was not 100 percent sure of the colors I had chosen for the Birkin I want to do in the (hopefully) near future? Well, yeah… those colors were lovely, but a wee bit too brilliant and clear for my faded colors. So I toned it down a…

Sneaking this in before I hit the road…

WARNING: THIS POST MAY HAVE SOME RELIGIOUS STUFF IN IT. If that is not your thing, please just skip over it.  I am not about trying to foist my beliefs or my belief system on anyone else – except to say we should all be kind to one another, one at a time. I am…

And the Knit goes on…

How is everyone today? Here in Merlin, it is sunny and beautiful and not terribly hot for the end of summer. Keeping all my Florida relatives and friends in my prayers as they hunker down for Hurricane Dorian. Please send good thoughts – and as is your wont – prayers down their way. Am having…

A Quick Post on a Sunday afternoon.

 It seems I’m always posting (when I do) on Sundays.  I think it’s because I don’t usually plan much on Sundays save the usual get-togethers we have as a family.  I try to keep my activities to that and the odd church thing.  The past couple of weeks have been busy-ish.  Right now I’m not…

Cross Stitch Inventory and One Mystery SOLVED!

Isn’t that a pretty bunch of embroidery floss? I know I bought them about ten months ago or so, but for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out WHAT cross stitch sampler they went with! I did finally figure it out, but it took getting out everything I had to see if there was…

Lazy Industry:)

This weekend was looking to be a lot of fun… until yesterday afternoon. Before I begin, the hearts of so many of my countrymen and women are breaking – yet again!-  for the victims of the latest acts of domestic violence/white terrorism rampant in this country.  Good Lord. What the f*CK is it going to…

Summer Reads

Not just summer, but for some reason this year has been a year of more reading than usual.  A subscription to Scribd, thanks to my youngest and her wife a couple of years back, has brought me numerous reads. Thanks also to Barb and Tracie of the 2KnitLitChicks Podcast, I am now a fan of…
