I cannot be the only one to have a sad bin filled with left over sock yarn, those odds and ends that remain after a project, in assorted colours and yardages. Ok, maybe ‘sad bin’ isn’t a fair categorization of this left over yarn. A bin full of potential, perhaps? For me, my bin continues […]

Top Five Ideas for Left Over Sock Yarn

Dog owners PLEASE read!

I can’t remember a time I didn’t have a dog. Tramping through fields and forests with Granger is always one of the highlights of my day, not just because it’s so beneficial for my mental and physical health, but seeing how happy it makes Granger to run, racing against the wind, ears flapping, brings me […]

Keep The Love Alive

The Poisonwood BibleThe Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’m sorry. I know this is beloved by so many people. For me, it was weeks of reading time I will never get back again.

Could it be due to listening to it on Audible? Maybe. I do know that I rarely knew whose point of view that was being presented. I didn’t even realize there were four daughters, not three, until the end of the book. I do wish that audio narrators would give us more flags of POV change.

I was raised reading missionary stories. My grandmother had a bookshelf of these stories. I loved reading about the missionaries going to foreign countries or continents. Of course, the issues of how women were treated were not in the books for my middle-grade group reads. Later I noticed how PKs and preacher’s wives were treated. Some with great respect, others with disdain, and worse. It makes me sick to know how the father treated the main characters in this book. And equally badly how the natives were treated. Nothing new there. When will humans learn to treat others with respect even when they don’t look or worship as we do?

I’m sure there are those who love this book. Maybe it was where I was mentally when I read (listened to) this book. I don’t want to ruin it for you. Enjoy.

Happy Polar Bear Day

Bad Internet

Hopefully this much will get through.

I wish I were farther along than I am. But I’ll take what progress I can.

One finished two-toned sock done. The mate is nearly finished, too. Yay! Oh, these are cotton. The loom is the Flexee fine-gauge loom. Kitchener Cast-on toe. German short-row heel. Two-by-two ribbing cuff. The cast-off is a crochet type. I’m not so happy with only one chain between loomed stitches. I needed more stretch for this pair of socks.
Same cotton but a different pair. Knitting on ChiaoGoo red-lace circular needles. These are Toe-up Two At A Time Socks. Now I need to learn how to do wrap-and-turn heel. I now have three pairs waiting for my brain to catch up.
These, too, are cotton. A far finger thread. The needles are thin, I think size 1? Again, these are ChiaoGoo red-lace circular needles. I expect these to take twice as long as the thicker cotton socks. At least they are starting to be more like socks and less like bras.

I’m going to post this as a place holder. Our internet isn’t working. It is even spotty on my phone. Hitting publish now.

Edit: All I got into this post last night was the paragraph just above. The pictures came through only just this morning. Now I’ll label them.

My Stream of Consciousness Saturday may have to happen on Sunday.

There is no one in the office of our internet company to help during the weekend.😒
