Monday Meet


I’m tired. But happy. I got to hang out with the lovely Hugger Hats group. We bagged tons of hats and other comforts for those in need. It is a good feeling to know those who are in need will be getting some little help.

Now off to bed…way early…did I mention…tired!

 

Satisfying Sunday


Finished today:

 

As you can see, I used the green Knifty Knitter. Which made the hat for a smaller adult than me. Or Teen. I made the brim and a few of the bumpy-outy spots using the e-wrap/purl combo that makes a one-row garter stitch. Then flat knit stitch. This was of scraps blending two strands and changing out to another combo as I got the notion. Just in time for the Meeting tomorrow. 🙂


Well, here we are again. Another Saturday down the stream. Here is the prompt from Linda G. Hill:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “oh.” Use it as a word or find a word that starts with “oh.” Bonus points if you start and end with “oh.” Enjoy!

 

Oh, I am so tired! The wind woke me around 2:30 (I had only closed the book I was reading at 2). The wind was so strong I was sure we would find ourselves in Kansas or Ohio! Off to the living room I stumbled. I just didn’t want to wake my spouse with my flipping and flopping of awakeness.

Oh, did I mention I won a GoodReads Giveaway? I received this book a couple days ago. It is called Welcoming the Unwelcome by Pema Chödrön.

As many of you may know reading a paper book is hard on my eyes. But here in the middle of the night, while trying to be quiet, this seemed to hit the spot. I only read two pages but I think I am going to like this book. Here’s to a couple more sleepless nights so I can indulge my spirit in my philosophy.

Speaking of how long it takes to read a tree-book. I have been reading Acorna’s People since August 16, 2018. I’m nearly finished. Still, I don’t give up. Just plug away as I can.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I didn’t finish the yellow sock. I did start another brown wool sock and an orange hat. I need to finish it before Monday’s meeting. No prob.

Oh, and another thing to talk about is our latest binge. Joey, my blogging friend, suggested Blacklist. We are on the second season and can’t stop! James Spader is fantastic!

My stream is running down now. Aren’t you glad? It’s messy in that mind! My, my! Oh!…

 

Finished Friday


Another pair of wool socks on the CinDWood 1/4″ gauge, 56 pegs. Toe-up using the following as my tutorial. They are a little big for me, closer to shoe-size 9. With the size and ankle just improvising. Two-by-two e-wrap/purled ribbing.

Pretty proud of this gray on gray hat. Needle knitted, purled and knitted according to whim. Vaguely I followed this pattern:

.

I hope it isn’t too blurry.

 

I will probably finish this sock tonight. Again, it is using the above tutorial for the toe-up method. Not as easy on the KB Sock Loom. I like the strength of the metal pegs but the shine makes it hard to see. I love the wood, but the pointed corners make holding it harder on the hands. And the rectangle shape make the toe-up Kitchener hard to keep untangled. Still, using an acrylic worsted yard means less knitting to get to the final product.

As the storm clouds gather, I remain happy for my accomplishments. I will need to whip out lots of hats for the charity, Hugger Hats, the need is great. So sock #2 will have to wait for a few quickies.

Have a great weekend!

 


When my kids were tested and proven to have ADHD. I was tested and surprised when the doc said mine was severe. And though some do well on drugs my guys and I found none that worked. Reblogging!

One-liner Wednesday


Found on FaceBook:

One-liner Wednesday is a fun prompt given to us by Linda G. Hill. Sorry, I just didn’t have the energy to do the words of my birthday that she shared. Hit her blog to see what I mean.

Warm Will Happen!


I finished my matching cowl! Bernet Baby yarn. It’s self striping. I used the garter stitch on the orange, small-gauge, KB with 80 pegs! Now I kind of can’t wait for cold weather! Don’t know if I care that these aren’t my colors. Warm and soft win!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Since I haven’t read every single pattern in this book, I can’t actually judge in entirety. Still, I did find it easy to follow in a couple of patterns I did use. The illustrations are far better than most of the loom knitting books. I do plan to keep it as a reference. There are still a couple of the socks I want to try.

Four Adults


 

Four adults doing a Sunday. I was cooking, we all were in our own worlds and got too busy.

WE

Didn’t notice this:

Until suddenly we realized she was not in the house. With all the predators around here and her penchant for exploring, we were scared. She was nowhere in the house. No one let her out. (Everyone has THAT family member!) So all of us were running around like crazy shouting her name. Nada. Finally, she came out from under a tree in the backyard. Apparently, she went visiting her friend next door during her adventure.

But look at her now!

Kali, Kali, Kali!

 


Per LindaYour Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ground.” Use it as a noun or a verb in any tense (i.e. grind). Have fun!

I made the most delicious potato soup last night. It was only after I went to bed that I realized that Grandma’s soup always had pepper in it. Mine didn’t. I don’t often add pepper to foods. I’m more of a salt freak. But today a friend and I were talking about how wonderful a good grinder was for that ground pepper. The bigger the peppercorn the nicer the food tastes, don’t you think?

When that conversation ground its way into the ground, I thought about my Himalayan salt and sea salt in the grinders. Is it just me or is that kind of salt far better tasting than the stuff in salt shakers? Plain old sodium chloride is far too salty and doesn’t help the food at all.

And isn’t the process of grinding said pepper or salt just ever so satisfying?

Okay, enough of the grinding of gears. I think this is grounds to end this spicy conversation, save the bump and grind. Had to get that in there. Happy weekend, everyone!
