Tag Archive: Flexee fine-gauge loom



My friend shared this with me. I thought it was cool!

Fresh off the loom;

Spa socks! Because they are cotton they are great after shower and lotion.

Diamond Painting is the new meditation.

It feels like I’m painting geodes. I love these colors!

By the way, it was pretty today, though cold. But snow is expected tonight in an hour. Crazy ‘Spring’ weather.


On the home-stretch with the spa slippers. I’d love to find a bunch of this twisted cotton. It feels good to my hands and I bet it’ll feel great to freshly-lotioned feet.
I will probably finish this dragon tomorrow. With this weather, I may never get outside again.
Last night at Kali’s midnight outside. Today snow blizzard conditions so as not to see a mile and then shiny blue skies. Trying to keep track of the season!

I lowered my goal for CampNaNo. 25k instead of 50k. Now I have less pressure and more fun ahead.


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “how.” Use the word “how” in your post. Bonus points if you start your post with it. Enjoy!

How is it Saturday already?

How is it I didn’t realize it was AtoZ April?

How is it I can’t do anything I’m supposed to do but spending so much energy and time on everything but my tasks?

Well, three days behind on writing. But…

Maybe two or three days more.

Slipper one at heel stage. Tomorrow slipper two heel.

Okay. Not to be hard on myself. Even though I had dilated eyes I opened a speech-to-text app. I talked out some memories to add to my project. Certainly not enough, but something.

Next task is yWriter and writing. Two and a half days of writing tonight. But how?

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!


A hat nearing the decrease of crown.
Another couple of inches of dragon. Loving it! I’m not sure but I think I’ve added another hour of sleep as it is so meditative to work on.

The biggie is my CampNano. I am still in the years of vague memories. Though today I’ll move into my seventh year. Word count is 5,407. As soon as I post the blog I’ll get busy writing more. It is different writing memories as opposed to imagination.

So walking was walking at home. The wind was so bad there is no way it can be healthy to breathe a sky that looks like this.

It is only a mile to the main highway. You can’t see it. So…

Ta Da Tuesday


Hat done. Yay! Already started the next one.

I love decreasing on the Flexee knitting loom.

Another walk! Same trail. Kali wanted to come. She starts with wanting to run.  I try to do my best. But quickly she’s tired and I feel cruel as I have no choice but to kind of drag her along. She won’t let me carry her. It’s already equally far to continue the route to turning around. She’s okay now. Chris and I did just fine. Everything is slower with Kali. It’s like taking a toddler for a walk. A block is miles!

Obviously when I screenshot, I didn’t realize I was chatting with my son’s Significant Other.❤️

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.

Making Monday


A pair of socks closer to the heel now. Finishing with 2by2 ribbed cuff.
Another charity hat.

My NaNoWriMo book, ‘Crystal’, is nearly caught up to date. I’m supposed to be at 36,674 words. I have 36,087 so I’m going to random word prompt until I can meet the quota.

How are all of you? Making things? Words?

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, hat


I love this decrease on the Flexee fine-gauge.

Another mohair charity hat.

Flexee fine-gauge loom with beginning of brim.

There are 80 pegs for my last couple hats. This one is less ‘fancy’ than the last. No cables. Just flat knit stitching throughout.

The brim is a fold up. I like those best as the double layer of fabric helps keep those ears warm.

I use this method to decrease the crown.

After doing the six rounds Kristen Mangus of #GoodKnitKisses shows here, I do six more by doing this: Once the loom is down to every other peg has a loop, I move one loop over to join a friend. That leaves the link beside it empty. I pop the empty out and resnap together the ends of the loom left dangling. I do that all the way around the loom making it half as large as it was before. I think that means I now have 40 pegs. Now I redo all six steps that Kristen show us.

By the way the closest the phone camera got to the color of this soft yarn is the one with the crown of the hat. It is more of a pinkish apricot than the orange that the camera shows.
