Sunday


I finally finished the socks. I’m so sad that the colors don’t look the same even though they are the same yarn. But at least they are the same size.

While knitting, I enjoyed these two films among other programs.

I’ve always been a fan of the Dianna Ross version in Lady Sings the Blues. I was excited to see this one with her son on another side of the great Billy’s life,

Then I was walking through the bedroom, and my husband had on the TV there. I saw Craig Ferguson on and knew I had to watch this:

What a sweet movie with humor and Scotland! I highly recommend this one.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone! And

goodnight kisses


 

I spent my Saturday listening to a podcast of controversy, travesty of facts and fictions distorted by money and lies. But fishing through we still don’t know what to do or who caused what. Still, I think it best to hear all sides to see the forests in shades of trees.

 

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-sty.” Find a word that ends in “-sty” or use the word “sty.” Enjoy!

Finished Almost Friday


After many frogs, the second sock is nearly finished. I would guess it will be done on Sunday. It is funny how different the two socks with the same yarn came out. Still, they are soft bamboo cotton that will be fun in tennies or morning slippers. All I know is I will never knit four socks at a time on the CinDWood X-loom. It is just too unwieldy. I might, though, make a scarf, blanket, or shawl as there are so many pegs (248) to make a good-sized piece of fabric.


The Keto Vegan: 14-Day Ketogenic & Intermittent Fasting Meal Plan (With 51 Tasty Low-Carb Plant-Based Recipes) (The Carbless Cook Book 7)The Keto Vegan: 14-Day Ketogenic & Intermittent Fasting Meal Plan (With 51 Tasty Low-Carb Plant-Based Recipes) by Lydia Miller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I like that there is a keto diet for vegans. This book outlines that plan well. I wish I had unlimited funds to support my dream eating habit. Still, I bought the Kindle version for my own references and followed recipes when I can in the future. Meanwhile, this book and others by this author are on Kindle Unlimited to peruse to see if it would help seek a healthier lifestyle.

I am still doing Intermittent Fasting but still need to find a doable food system for my particular needs. I look forward to trying some of these recipes in the future.

One-liner Wednesday is a fun, easy prompt by Linda G. Hill.


Northern Lights (Compass, #1)Northern Lights by Lise Gold
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After finishing Kristin Lavransdatter, I needed something lighter to read, yet still wanting a little more Norway. What better than Northern Lights? It is an adventure on holiday in Norway to see the Northern Lights also a lesbian romance.

My husband and I took an Alaskan cruise in June about a decade ago. I had hoped beyond any known reality that I would get to see the Aurora Borealis. I stayed awake until the three hours of night were over hoping to see this phenomenon. It was June. I knew it wouldn’t happen. I hope I get to see it someday. Meanwhile, I have to sink into fiction to experience it.

This was a light, fun romance. And the author caught the feeling of being on a cruise or holiday together with strangers. It was fun to see how those in Norway celebrate Christmas. Oh, and at the end of the book are a bunch of recipes that a person who loves that sort of thing would enjoy. I don’t much like to cook. You might like it though.

Hope you had a good one.

Sunday Funday, Mostly


After enjoying  CBS Sunday Morning, and may I say I am a Cindy McCain fan now. I mosied over to my Zoom service. I have missed the last few weeks. How does one miss a Zoom service when you don’t have to dress up and be somewhere? Well, one does have to wake up on time. And I haven’t lately. So it was fun and informative. I was convinced to order this book on Audible.

Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents
Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents
by

Isabel Wilkerson (Goodreads Author),
Robin Miles (Narrator)
Then I spent the rest of the day knitting and watching free live Galaxycons that I had signed up for earlier. I found I will watch any of them, even shows I never cared for, as I love hearing the people talk about their times, learning about following their passions of acting. I even watched one about Goofy and Mickey Mouse voices and the Little Mermaid’s stars. Here is one of their commercials. Maybe the ones talking aren’t who you are interested in, but go in and see if they have some convention stars you might like to know more about.

 

So I put off this blog hoping to show you that I had completed a pair of socks. And though that is true, what I found at the latest sock was larger than the first one. After another count of pegs, I saw I had miss counted hence the larger-sized one. Now I have the decision to frog the big one and put it on the smaller-counted pegged arm of the CinDWood X-loom. Or Frog both and start over on another couple looms. OR make two more socks on the same two arms of the loom that the ones I just finished came off of giving me two pairs, one bigger than the other like this time. Decisions, decisions! I like the one sock. I don’t want to frog it. I hate working on the big loom, so I dread knitting two more socks on it. I think I can handle one more, so that is what I will do. Frog the big put on the lessor pegs, and hopefully, I will be done with the smaller pair soon.

Let the frogging begin!

Have to do with utter breakdowns, sweaty palms, shaking uncontrollably?

Noive! As our Cowardly lion taught us. Okay, the word is Nerve but I always heard him say it noive. I lose my nerve on phonecalls (answering or making–any that aren’t family and friends), speaking on stage. Meeting new people (though I love meeting new people!) and I used to–and probably would again since it’s been so long–singing solos. But what I learned from that lion is that if you do your best to memorize the song, dress up and look your best, and play the part of someone confident I can sing. The song that goes with that noive for me is sung by Maria Von Trapp: I have confidence. When I can internalize that song I can psych myself the nerve.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “nerve.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

 

Finished Friday


I wish I could say I have finished a whole pair of socks. Instead, I have to claim a sock and nearly another, minus the cuff. I think it is safe to say that the pair should be whole by Sunday.

I’m still teaching myself to circular needle knit a pair of toe-up magic circle socks. I’m giving up on the provisional cast-on. I think it isn’t the actual cast-on that bothers me; you aren’t starting at the tip of the toe but farther in. So my blog-friend at Missy’s Crafty Mess   shared her favorite cast-on. It does seem a lot more logical, so I’m frogging those again and trying this instead. Maybe I should call it Frogging Friday at this point?

 

It was a fun Friends Friday as my buds and I did our regular Zoom get-together. While we were chatting, our weather here went from sunny to a layer of snow. Now it is mostly gone. Sorry to the rest of the country that is getting overloaded with the stuff. We need lots more as our drought continues. But it was fun to watch this out my front window.
