Well, this is doable.

Thanks, Linda G. Hill, for a prompt I can handle!

Lost RosesLost Roses by Martha Hall Kelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was lucky to read this ARC from NetGalley. It was an engaging read.

Enjoyable in places, it was hard to read in others. After all, the author tried to give us a bit of a history lesson, while helping the reader to see what it might have been like for the Russians as the Red Party took over and the current royalty was killed or escaped the country.

There seemed to be a bit of repetitive information. As this was my go-to-sleep book, it was okay. It did its job. At least I caught it before the Kindle broke my head as I dropped it. But it wasn’t dull information. And that is a hard call. Sometimes you have to remind the reader about people or moments they may have forgotten chapters ago.

What I most liked is that this is a prequel for a book I read earlier, Lilac Girls. The book follows the family back in time and how they helped the Russian immigrants fleeing the tortures and possible murders of their home country.

I look forward to reading the next book that goes back further into the Civil War.

The Trap


So, this happened this morning. Let me explain. Chris gets the cats. Kali sleeps with me. When he gets up early they congregate with the swing-shift sleeper. But how to get up? Kali’s dilemma is worse. Here’s the pictorial version. The first has a circle around our sleeping Rosey. Arrow points to Kali, who didn’t fit in the frame. Oh, and the blue plaid are my PJ pants and I’m right up against the wall.I figure out how to ease off the end of the bed.Kali’s face tells the story. And finally she has figured it out.

This is worth the read. If my computer were less glitchy I’d add to the responses. Meanwhile, read my friend, Sadje’s response.

Unfinished WIPs


No internet for a 24 hours. I shouldn’t be using my data. But… Unfinished projects. Will any be ready for Finished Friday?

A pair of men’s socks.

Another doll.

A baby hat.

I frogged my 10-stitch. Just didn’t like how it was tturning out.

An adult hat.

Another sock, another loom.

More truth


Finished Friday


This week started with a pair of unmatched socks. I didn’t realize it until I took the picture. I kept rearranging until they ‘looked’ matched. But one cuff was two inches longer than the other.

So I tried to think how I could donate, with clear conscience, to my charity. I couldn’t. I thought maybe I should keep them for myself. Nah. So I went through all the yarn hoping to find more of the same color. So lucky to find more. Now the challenge was to make another perfectly unmatched pair.

I did it!

These are the same colors. The cell didn’t photograph these very well. Sorry.

Now I can donate happily! And I think I have enough leftover for one more pair!

These are on the KB Sock 2 loom. It is a larger gauge which makes it great for single strand worsted weight yarn.

The pattern is found in the package. I revised a bit to something like this:

Two-by-two brim (2″ and 4″ respectively) an inch of flat stitch, then heel, then 6 1/2″ e-wrap, then toe.

I love making socks!

Finished Friday


One bit of a compression sock. The compression is the tighter stitches at the ankle and at the toe. It is quite comfortable. I made it on my new KB Sock 2 that my brother bought for me.

This pair of wool ankle socks I made on a small gauge, CinDWood, 56 peg loom.

1_4-56-pink

I love this loom most of all of them. The pattern is adapted from the many that are on the packages of the other looms, and many I found online. Two by two Knit/Purl brim. a couple inches for the ankle, then the heel decreases and increases per foot size. Then about 6 1/2 inches for the next part, just straight flat knit. The toe matches the heel. These were fun and easy and I am wishing I could keep these but all the socks pictured here were with donated yarn so these will be donated to our charity Hugger Hats.

One-Liner Wednesday


One good thing about three-hour, round trip doctor appointments: Listening to books on CDs! (Dance Hall review coming soon!)

By the way, the appointment went great. C had his Staples out and the doctor was pleased with the recovery. C is having very little pain and seems to be doing well with NO pain pills since the operation.

Thank you, Linda G. Hill for a quick and easy challenge! It is taking a while to get back into the daily blogging routine.
