Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last thing you put in your fridge.” Start your post with the last thing you put in your fridge. Let your mind wander from there. Enjoy!

The last thing I put in my fridge was the ranch dressing that fell out because the last person who put it in didn’t make sure it was in there securely. I wanted to complain, but I am very grateful for a full fridge. We have been blessed this month with a little extra on our cards, and so when we got the boxes, the cabinets and fridge are full. In my life, that has hardly ever been the case. Not that I have ever been hungry. But just enough that I can find what I need in the fridge is the usual scene. I am so glad my husband is starting to like my vegetarian ways. Yes, he eats some meat but very seldom. My son does the same thing buying the occasional tofu meal. He loves Kimchi. I tried to cook it a lot once I learned about it. I make the rice and veggies on the side and make sure to fry the tofu to crispie-ish. The trouble with the lockdown is that we don’t get into town to find the Kimchi. I think I will try to order some on Amazon.

Yay! Got me some Kimchi, noodles, a cooker, and tofu coming. My mouth is drooling!

Okay, now for the NaNo word count: 35,167, still barely above the goal of 35,007 but, I’m happy. I like how the story is going. Not sure I should share until I am more sure where it is going. I’m having fun. That’s all that counts.

I didn’t have a finished product yesterday for Finished Friday. I had one slipper sock done, and while chatting with my friends, I nearly finished the other. Boom! Done today!

And I have the next pair toed and ready to make the next pair.

Gnome and NaNo Update


Well, this morning I finished tiny sock number two.

It almost looks like a gnome already. But my cousin has given me ideas and the vague pattern I saw that got me started is in my head to do more. I cant wait to see how it turns out. By the way, working on the itty bitty socks was so much fun, I wish I could make tons of them!

 

Nano word count at this moment is 19,558 I need 500 words to take it over the requirement. Sorry, me. I had to watch Grey’s Anatomy crossover. And the living room got so cold I had to move to the bedroom with everything. Hopefully, the snow coming with warm us up a bit.

One-Liner Wednesday


Behold the boot of a gnome.

That was fun working on a keychain loom. I’ve started the second but I knew I had better get busy writing.

On that front, the word count is now 19,395.

Head over to Linda G. Hill’s site to learn more about this fun prompt.

Quick Update / Made it Monday


Well, there haven’t been a lot of words today. Less than 400. For some reason, I never got settled in front of the laptop enough to do anything. But I did find myself challenged by Gnome hats. I wanted to see if I could make a hat without sewing. Just decreases. And I was successful at that:

It worked! Yay!

I also finished the hat I mentioned yesterday.

Here is just off the loom and on the head. It’s a small adult or child’s size. I do love doing the cables on the Flexee loom.

Now I am either going to get a second wind and write for a while or hit the hay. I don’t know why I have been so sleepy today. Maybe the cold is causing me to want to hibernate!

Finishing Friday


I hate to admit to not having anything finished today.

Remember the socks on the CinDWood X loom (what I can’t help but call X-wing)?

I decided that they were turning out too wide. So I frogged nearly all four and readjusted and started three from the beginning.

Remember the half-finger gloves?

I got down to just below the thumb and can’t understand the tutorial for the next couple of rows. I’ve sent out requests to the designer to see if she can walk me through.

I have made a couple more ear warmers but something you can make in half a day doesn’t make me nearly as happy with the finished project as the hats in the above picture.

I didn’t finish my editing for the four previous chapters of Pandamapocolypse. I hope to finish that by tomorrow afternoon. Then I need to get a vague outline for the next 50K to add to that story. And I will try to beef out the characters so as to have more to write about.

Oh, and I haven’t finished the fourth and last season of Hart of Dixie. It is winding down. It is light fun. And one episode recently actually made me cry, Mostly I find it fun/funny.

If you want to watch something to escape the news and anxiety, and fun background while you get something done, this is it.

Tomorrow I may not blog as I need to get NaNoWriMoing pregame workup and then living the night of writing dangerously.  If you are joining me, good luck! And

Happy Halloween!

Monday’s Making


Mitten caps done. Half-fingers done. Now onto cuff and the sewing. I hope to finish tomorrow. NaNo characters are calling me!

I Hate the Block Editor


So instead of writing here I’m knitting until I feel less angst from this nasty way of writing. And NaNo is coming so I don’t have time for this nonsense!

I’m making my pair to be convertible as I am adding a mitten cap for the cold. These will be for the charity, Hugger Hats.

I have a friend that recently started blogging but she is upset with the change. I wish I could encourage her, but I find this new way so confusing. Any suggestions for us?

Monday Makings


Three hats, a earwarmer convertible fingerless mittens.
And four socks. Busy. Busy, Busy!

Sunday Socks


Finished these today. About a shoe size 9 ladies. Wool. Made on Hers (KB His/Hers–orange looms). Kitchener cast-on, flat knit-stitch, German Short-row heel, four-by-four knit/purl, ribbed cuff. For my charity, Hugger Hats.

The color looks orange, but it is more rust brown.

I’ve started convertible fingerless mittens with the last of this yarn. I hope it works out.

Made It Monday


Ear warmers are easy and fun when fine-gauge looms start hurting. Finished the one below and nearly finished with another. I’m making one for me, too. I think they will be great on bad hair days.

E-wrap cast-iron. Flat-knit stitch around. 24-peg Knifty Knitter loom. About 19-21 inches long. Gather ends to look like a flower. A scrunchy or rubber band can hold it in place and keep it comfortable for the wearer.
