Making Monday


I’ve been working on the drawings but I’m not done yet. And I know more story but both can wait until tomorrow.

Meanwhile, two more socks are toed.

And I cut my hair, closer to the length of my Bitmoji.


If I hadn’t been working on these:

I might have finished my Inktober drawing and story. Thank goodness for Stream to get a blog published today. And putting off for later what could have been done yesterday and this morning.

Oh, and then. If only I could leave a loom open rather than immediately setting up the next pair of socks, I would have had more writing time. But gifts want to be given.

So I’d have a horse ranch if wishes…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “if.” Start your post with the word “If.” Enjoy!

Making Monday


Another hat on the Flexee fine-gauge loom. This yarn is softer, but I still have a bit of the mohair to use up so I’m adding pinkish basket weave band above the brim.

And another pair of socks nearly finished with gifted yarn. I’m including the label of the yarn.

I may or may not finish my Inktober for the day.

It has been a busy day. We’re hitting 17 degrees tonight. We might have had flurries that didn’t stick last night. So we were too cold to be in the living room today.

All that sent me into packing up the summer shorts and looking for warmer clothes and my electric lap blanket for the living room. I didn’t finish that but I found enough to get through tomorrow. Snow is expected Wednesday. I forgot to take a picture of our nearly naked trees and leaf-padded driveway. Hopefully, the wild winds today didn’t get rid of all the leaves. Winter is rearing it’s head before Halloween. Isn’t that against the law?

Sock Sunday


Wahoo! Finished these today.

CinDWood Sock Looms 56 peg, 1/4 ” fine-gauge

Kitchener cast-on, former yarn for toes and heels, using German short rows. 4×4 ribbing on cuffs.

These are so comfortable!

Making Monday


Scrappy socks are nearly finished. Most of the pair are made of the Mani-Pedi crew color yarn. The toes and heels are scraps from the previous pair I made. I’m loving how they are working up.

We lived through the triple digit hot Sunday. Today was sort of hot but not nearly as bad. Tomorrow is supposed to be 72. I might wear jeans and T-shirt instead of shorts and tank-top what a relief! I might take a nice walk as air quality is also supposed to be good for a change.

Ta-Da Tuesday


I finally finished this pair of socks. And guess who they fit? Me!

Guess I should tell the details. CinDWood sock loom, Kitchener cast-on, toe-up, 4by4 knit/purl on top of foot then the ankle up through cuff. I didn’t like the purling. It made the project take far too long.


Making music. My housemates and neighbors may disagree.

My free classes ended last Thursday. It was fun having a Zoom class making progress through elementary music.

I am a music major so I can read music,  no problem.  Well, except for the eyes that have problems seeing. But recorder music is only one line. As opposed to four or more in piano music. So recorder is easier.

Without the black and white keys I have had to learn finger positions. Seems easy enough. Except fingers, my fingers are short and have a hard time reaching.

Maintaining breath while hitting the notes and trying to keep time present challenges.

Any of you who had to take recorder classes in school might remember the screeching noises of the soprano recorder.

So I am attempting to learn the alto, too. I love it’s rich smooth sounds. But my hands hurt after more than few minutes playing.

All the music time cuts my knitting time. So the socks are just two inches from being done. Maybe this week they’ll be complete.

What are you making?


Adding the cuffs.

So today was a busy one.

I got up way later that I hoped. Still it wasn’t too hot so Kali and I walked our mile. She was so slow. I don’t know what was up. She usually loves her walks. So it was way slower than usual. My app didn’t record it. I listened to a podcast that my daughter introduced me to. It kept my mind busy so the walk was painless.

My friends and I have challenged each other to watch all of Marvel Universe in timeline order. My husband has joined. We are now on Ironman 3. I think this is my favorite of the Ironmen. By the way, you can find this order on Disney +.

I seem more tired since getting back. I had to take a nap. I usually do well on a 20 minuter. But I went far over. I was 1/2 hour late for my recorder class.

Luckily,  I have a few lessons on my own before finding the class so it was review. I’m sure my advance will fade in the next two lessons. It was fun to be in a class with second graders to folks my age. I think that is the best kind of class. Be on the level of learning not peer groups.

Within a 1/2 hour of the end of recorder class was my writers group. I love the people in that group. Such a creative bunch. There are published authors to challenge all of us.

Now back to Ironman.


A pair nearly finished. Ankle done on one. After ankles then cuffs and done.

Because we have to keep the house dark on these hot days, knitting doesn’t happen as often or as long. My eyes complain at the strain.

Much of what was supposed to be done by today still patiently waits.

Maybe we should all have the patience of tasks undone!

Hot Sunday


I still don’t feel like turning on the laptop. It is still quite warm at nearly eleven. And we didn’t even hit the predicted 101. But too uncomfortably close.

In spite of that, the day was fun. Nottinghill, Holiday, and 50 First Dates, Big Hero 6, played on TV while the four of us and the furry children sat in front of fans and looked pathetic.

I managed to knit a heel on a sock. Wahoo something got done!

Sorry this is short and boring. But when I read back in the future it might be cold and busy and I’ll look at this time and gain inner warmth or be glad it still isn’t summer.

Now, even though it is late, I’m going to try and hit the musics then the shower and bed.
