What a great way to start a weekend! Our eldest grandchild, M., performed Friday evening with the Mount Hebron HS dance company. She was very happy. This has been a great year for her. You can see the happiness on her face as she poses with her aunt and sister right after the performance. She and her family will be coming by today to celebrate … Continue reading Having a lovely time….
Or perhaps one can say it’s peeking around the corner, hesitantly moving forward in fits and starts:). That’s OK – I’ll take it! The past week or so has been pretty much same old same old. Not a whole bunch to report, except I did finally finish the Bright Sweater! That last sleeve took sooooo long to finish. I have to laugh – I thought for sure … Continue reading Spring Hath Sprung and Happy Bearthday!
Which is why I don’t have much to report regarding knitting progress. I am about to begin the fifth pattern repeat (of seven) on the left sleeve of the Bright Sweater. After that is done all that is left to do is weaving in the very few ends to be woven in and then blocking. So, after I am back from my one client visit … Continue reading There’s this Earning A Living thing going on…

Am in the home stretch for the Bright Sweater (finally!) with four more repeats of the sleeve patterning for the second (left) sleeve and then the twisted stitch ribbing and stockinette roll at the cuff. I actually tried it on and – who knew?- it will fit! This sweater is meant to be extremely over-sized for … Continue reading An Embarassment of Riches and Stash Enhancement:)
Or so they say:). I am doing the one thing I never liked: not attending church the Sunday after the holiday – so lazy of me. It’s hard to believe it’s only one week since Easter, which in the western church tradition was last Sunday. Today is Easter for the Orthodox and Eastern rite Catholics. Happy Easter to you:)! What a couple of weeks it has … Continue reading I heard a rumor that Spring is coming.
Last Saturday night began Daylight Savings Time in the US (or most of it, anyway). Of late, it seems to start about a month earlier in the year than it used to, making for colder, darker mornings and longer brighter days (at least when it’s not raining or sometimes snowing). But it’s still cold around here. Spring does eventually come and when it does, it’s … Continue reading Spring? Ahead
I am always a bit wary of posting a title like this for any blogpost. It invariably means the week will end up insane at the last minute. But so far, not much has gone on. In a week where I have court at least three mornings and some afternoons, I have only the a.m. and p.m. docket tomorrow. I need to complete some paperwork … Continue reading A Quiet Week
