Tag Archive: Loom Knitting



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!

Finished bath mitt.

I found a cotton sock yarn and started a pair of toes.

I didn’t work on my dragon today. But my progress as of yesterday looked like this.

The house is still standing despite 65mph winds. And electric storm. And once that settled slushy snow played around outside.

Four seasons in a day!

No writing. That may be a morning job. I’ll let you know tomorrow. Guilt isn’t a good motivation.  Music fits in the same category. I need to work out a schedule for these things.

.


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.


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!

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.❤️

Here’s the latest projects that have seen progress.

Most of the wing, arm, to the waist, done. I am loving this project. Wish my body let me stay with it more.
Charity yarns, charity socks. I think they will be striped or scrappy.

Spa sock for a gift. This is cotton and acrylic. Very soft and will work well for post bath and lotion

This wool doesn’t have enough strength to be socks so after trying and frogging twice, I decided to make a hat or two.

I did get a new scene going for editing book 2. Not as much as I want but, hey, it’s something. Progress.

We got a little rain and snow this morning, but I think we are into Spring again. The mesquite bushes are getting leaves. I do hope we get more spring showers. Our area is in exceptional level of draught. That is dryer than extreme.

Happy Spring, everyone!


This was fun today. When my glue dots quit working I used the QuickStik. It worked very well!

This is about 1/3rd done. I thought I was at the halfway point but realized that I still have part of it rolled up at the bottom. But isn’t that bird cute?

There isn’t much finished since yesterday, but the spa slipper is nearly to the heel stage.

I like this cotton blend and wish I had lots more. I think these slippers will feel quite nice on tired feet.

When I post this, I plan to write a new scene for my book rewrite. This part of the writing process is harder than that first read/edit. I have to think more while trying to keep my creative brain open to new ideas. So there’s that. I’ll let you know if the scene works out.

How’s your Friday?


Still kind of tired so the week is going slow. ☹️

I got new glasses.

$15 at Amazon. Blue Light Protection, well, what it says on the box up there. The bottom part is a 3.50 and it gradually goes less. I wish the top was just clear as I still have to glance over the top for farther away, like television. But they help a lot for reading, knitting, and Diamond Painting.

Speaking of which:

Half of the bird is done now. Oh. And I got a QuickStik. Still new at using it but some people love it. I’ll let you know later.

Oh, and using the ruler is wobbly after hitting the middle section of the picture. Again, maybe there’s a learning curve.

My friend gave me new yarn. Are you feeling the giddiness I felt receiving it? Whee! ❤️❤️❤️🤗

And this cotton blend calls to being spa slippers. Couldn’t even keep it off the loom!

I still haven’t climbed back into the editing chair. 😢 Maybe tomorrow or weekend will get me going.

It is slightly warmer lately, but the wind keeps me inside. Even so I’m cold. I’m working on my diet to see if that’s the problem. With some foods unavailable in our stores I’m needing to be creative. Time for some shifting around.


Sorry. Not sorry. Just didn’t finish the Sunset Beach. There was only straightening, sealing, and painting a frame, but for me the straightening is the hardest. Hopefully, tomorrow I’ll ‘gird my loins’ and face it.

The socks are nearly finished. Just putting on the ribbing.

And it looks like I’ll have just the right amount of yarn for both socks.

Editing/reading first round is nearly done. I’m happy that I almost doubled my goal for February. I set up this months’ goal as just finishing. Though the project has nearly 58k I set the goal (extended last months’ goal) to 60k. That will encourage me to write a couple thousand to build a few characters up.

Sorry cell picture of the computer screen doesn’t do well. But hopefully, you can read it. I have 45,190 in my project so it seems an easy goal.
