Tag Archive: CinDWood sock loom



So unfortunately the lighthouse is finished. My next project won’t be here until Wednesday. I’m at loose ends. Meanwhile, I still need to straighten, seal and hang it.

I finally hung the tea dragon on the tea cabinet. My phone camera was being weird.  It looks far better than this.

I’m nearing my goal on my memoir for Junowrimo.

Look! Only 367 until 50k! Oh yeah. Snap! That wasn’t the goal for June. 55,100 is the goal. I think I can…
Sock number one is nearly done. Probably finishing it tomorrow.
I know we can!

Time to look at works in progress.

Sock on the left ready to cuff. Sock on the right ready for ankle.
Almost done.

But if you’ve been following. I’m spending a lot of time reading. Even reading out loud. I know that seems something small. But my eyes have never been able to see to track and read properly, even though reading has always been my favorite pastime.

So I’m in training now so that my dream of sharing my books and podcasting will happen. I picked up

12Pcs Dyslexia Tools for Kids Dyslexia Reading Strips, Colored Overlays for Dyslexia Transparency Reading Guide Strips for Kids Correction Gel Lighting Filter (11.7 in x 8.3 in) to help me track better.

I will use these on books and computer screen.

I’m still checking out Librivox to read aloud books and Audacity to help record podcasts and books.

So busy!


Toes done. CinDWood 1/4″ fine-gauge, 56 peg. Socks for a friend.

Toes done, again. The sock on the right was how far along I’d gotten when I saw it was time to frog the whole mess. So I’ve started a new pair. This is the ‘His’ of KB His or Hers sock loom. This is a charity pair.

The Tea Dragon is nearly done. Probably, tomorrow I’ll place the last diamonds.

I’ve done Morning Pages two days in a row. Of all the finished or near finished projects, the 6 pages are what I’m most proud of. It is hard to do them.

Five more days until this NaNo goal is reached.

Junowrimo will get the next part of my autobiography.

Last night was another beautiful sunset.

Still cold, windy and rainy. But the sky is gorgeous!

The eyes keep getting better though the bruises and swelling make it look like I was in a brawl.

I can’t wait until I look more like my Bitmoji.

Sock on the right will be finished tomorrow. Hopefully, the left will be done by Monday.

Speaking of Monday, my first cataract surgery is happening at 12:55pm. I’m nervous and excited.

Will I finish this weekend? I hope so.

The writing is doing okay. The memory not so much. I took the readers through all my 11 houses the first couple years of my married life in my twenties. I suddenly remembered a room that my mother-in-law help me rescue but I couldn’t remember which home it was in. Suddenly I realized I had left out the first home we bought. There was the room!

May has gotten off on quite the path! May Day, May the Fourth Be With You, Cinco de Mayo, not a flower or margarita in sight. Tons of winds and a little rain.


It started this morning with this sweety holding down the foot of my recliner while knitting.

Made progress on my dragon.


I found this interesting about age groups learning languages. I hope those who are not on Duolingo can read it, too.

The dragon is looking like a dragon.

You can see the size of my light pad.
Finally working the cuffs.

My new NaNoWriMo goal to add another 20k to the memoir.

Now I reward myself for doing my tasks Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhearst.


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “zip, zero, zilch.” Use one, use ’em all, bonus points if you use all three. Have fun!

Zipping through hours of Diamond Painting and loom knitting socks. And I am having so much fun listening to book 8 of Outlander.

When our weather guy gave us the latest news on our drought, we found zero improvement. We are still at “exceptional” status. Worse than anywhere in Oregon. We are in the Outback or desert. But this has been the driest year since we got here. I have to admit to being really afraid of fire season coming up.

Now, I’ve got to confess, I’ve had yWriter7 open since I woke up early this morning. Zilch. But I promise all of us I will meet my 20k goal before bed tonight. Otherwise I count on zero, zip, zilch sleep.

Autobiographies/memoirs are far harder than making it up in you head and playing with imaginary friends!
Whew! 20,100 words! And that only has me to age 21. So many I’ll set the goal for 20k each month to keep it moving

At least I can sleep tonight.


Heels done. Ankle started on the one on the right.
Almost to the eye of the dragon.
I lowered my goal to 20k. Now to write 3k in two days. Writing fantasy is so much easier than real life. Especially when dealing with the memory of a 72 year old. Who knew there’d be so much ‘research’?

Hey, WordPress, I do my Duo and then I blog. EVERYDAY! Why do you have me at such a low number?

Almost finished with my dragon.

Maybe finishing tomorrow.

Second sock nearly caught up with first sock. Heels start tomorrow.

And memoir is coming along.

I only need 8,590 words and can get there writing 1,227 a day. No prob, right?

Writing, dotting, knitting, chatting with friends. What a great day!

I seem to manage two hours a day with diamonds and audible.
Sock one and sock two. #1 is ready to heel.
10k to reach the goal by 4/31. I think I can…
Grateful for rain!
