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.

Finished Friday


HOTL! (Hot off the loom). Just finished this hat. It is the pink and blue yarns combined. It is soft and warm. I think someone who receives it will love it. It turned out to be a snugger hat than using just one yarn at a time. So a smaller adult. Added to the charity bag with a bit of jealousy cause I love it. But I have plenty of hats in my own yarn.

So the specs:

Flexee fine-gauge loom, 80 pegs. Fold-up brim. All flat knit stitched. GoodKnitKisses 6 row decrease at crown. Move loops to remove every other link. Once more with the 6 row decrease. Then gather bind-off. Boom!

Just in case you forgot the pink and blue hats (same yarn).

Finished Friday


Yep. Another pink mohair hat. This one I added a little basket- weave. That’s just 4 knits, 4 purls done in 6 rows then reversing the order. I did the pattern 3 times. I like how it turned out. For more details the check out my previous hat.


I’m nearly finished with a pair of reversed socks. The combo is the opposite of the pair I finished a few days ago.

I just need to finish the cuffs. That’ll be done tomorrow, I’m sure.

This was yarn from China that I bought just before the lockdown. The labels are in Chinese except for the word Bamboo. Four skeins equal four socks. I made them on KB Flexee fine-gauge looms of 40 pegs each. I started with the Kitchener cast-on, German short-row toes, and heels. Most of the rest of the sock was the flat-knit stitch. The cuff is two-by-two knit and purl rib-stitch. Extra stretchy bind-off finishes the sock.

I am nearly finished with one other thing, and I will probably finish before I go to bed, The Walking Dead volume 15. I’ll post my review on Sunday. Notice how I left Saturday open for the usual Stream of Consciousness?

By the way, I love Fridays because I get to Zoom with my BFFs! The exciting part is two of us four have gotten their vaccines (first shots). No, our little community is still waiting for the shots to arrive.
