Finished Friday


Scrappy slipper socks for charity. Just using last bits of some yarn.

That’s all for now.

Happy Hath Day! (September 30th)

Finished Friday


FINALLY! After many frogs and tinks the needle hat is finished.

It looks small but it fits my big head. There’s lots of yarn left in the skein so I may attempt another hat. These are donated yarns so they go to the charity.
Almost to the decreasing part of the crown of the hat. I can’t wait to see how the two hats compare.

The socks are all in the position last seen. I guess my hands needed a hat break.

More than halfway done with Starry Night.

I’m loving, well, loving hating my treadmill. I know if I keep it up I will make healthy progress.

That’s it for now. Wish I had progress on any writing. But we celebrate what we can.

My condolences to my friends across the pond.

Have a good weekend!

Yahoo! I can report something finished on an actual Friday!

Tomorrow I seal and washi tape frame. The next is already calling me.

Finished Friday


I played yarn chicken with the leftover wool. I decided I might be able to make a child’s hat.

Still have the tiniest bit left.

After a very busy day in Bend. Dilated eyes made shopping out of the question.  I couldn’t even help in the bread store.

At the eye surgeon’s I learned my eyes had gotten so bad that she was nervous about all the things that could go wrong. Still, it’s safer getting the surgery, than letting it go. The scary things that could go wrong are like the warning signs at a roller coaster ride. You know the ones, do not ride if pregnant, have heart or back issues, etc. But I loved the coasters. I live seeing, reading so maybe it’s the same. Apparently, I won’t end up with 20/20. But it will be at correctable levels with glasses. My good eye will be able to drive without glasses. Even the bad will be corrected to arms length, like computer and piano music. Reading books will take readers. No prob. I can handle that.

I learned that for my first surgery she’s put me at the end so if it goes over time it won’t get in the way of other surgeries. BUT by being end of day the recheck can’t happen until the next morning. That means we find the pot of gold to stay at a motel over night or after the 4 hours round trip the day of the surgery getting up at 3:30AM to get to the recheck at 5:30AM and 5hen back home yikes!

We’ll work it out!

Finished Friday


Inside out.
Right side out folded brim
Inside out, fold up brim.
Right side out, brim down.

This was a fun hat. The colors remind me of candy corn. The brim is what I think is called Homespun. It’s polyester and rather bumpy. Because of that I was restricted. It is soft but sometimes hard to work with.

The yellow, and rust yarns were mohair of sorts. It is extremely soft. Again, I was rather restricting. No fancy cable stitches or the like will show up.

I don’t believe these yarns would be itchy in any way. I showed the ways the hat can be worn. The inside of the hat (the purl side) is soft like a kitten. And it looks as furry.

Okay, now the detailed bit. I used 80 pegs (40 links) of the KB Flexee fine-gauge loom. Drawstring cast on. After 4″ of flat-knit stitches I pulled the cast on back on the loom forming a folded brim.

The rest of the body of the hat was a simple flat knit stitch.

Finally, I found better instructions for a nice crown decrease. Here is the YouTube I followed.

Other finished things aren’t so much.

Half a sunset on a beach is better than none.

My editing continues. 8,199 words put into yWriter7.

The brim of the next hat nearly ready to fold up.


Done with the dots and Mod Podge. Tomorrow, black paint framing.

Yesterday, I kitted up the new project.

Here’s the preview and key.

The ‘diamonds’ come in little packets. With this project it’s even better as they are in little ziplock bags. The numbers correspond to the key on the canvas.

One side of cellophane bag.
The other side.
I have these containers that I think are less dumpable. So I labeled per key.
Progress so far.

And knitting is still keeping me out of trouble. This pair going to the charity. I’ll give the play by play when finished.

So soft. I wish they fit me! Not really. I feel good that someone might feel more comfortable in their life.

Finished Friday


Oh, and Freezing Friday. Here’s our porch light as proof. It’s creepier at night but too cold and icy to step out to take a picture.

These finished and the next already started.

Kitchener cast-on, white toes cinnamon foot, white heel and cuff.

A very satisfying finish was the series Lost in Space.

Now back to Season 13 of Doctor Who.

Oh and here’s to the finish of this horrid year

See you next year!

Finished Friday!


Yay! Two more socks done! Done on the His looms of the KB His and Hers sock looms. Kitchener cast-on toe, flat-knit stitch through out. German short-rows for heels. Knit/Purl ribbed cuff.


Yeah. I finished m wordage for NaNoWriMo. To get through the writing, I either listened to Pandora Classical Study Channel,

Dawson’s Creek,

or the Misfits.

I know. Quite the variety. My story is about people who are learning about new abilities. Hence the Misfits. There is a lot of family drama. Therefore Dawson’s Creek (And I love meandering down memory lane when my daughter and I used to watch it regularly, think, Y2K!) Other times I needed to just have something in the background. The music did the trick, usually. That is when it didn’t make me pull out the recorders or run to the piano to play Moonlight Sonata or Sarabande.

I wish I had pictures of something that is finished. But socks and hats took second place to writing. Oh, heck. This pair is close enough, just needing the cuffs. So Bam!

What are you watching, working on? By the way, Diamond Painting will be my next thing. I’m gathering bits to help with the new hobby.

Happy Friday and Happy December!

Finished Friday


Still writing. Need another couple hundred words to make the daily allotment.

Meanwhile I finished this hat a couple days ago.
