Your prompt for #JusJoJan the 28th and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “throw in the towel.” Use the phrase “throw in the towel” somewhere in your post. Enjoy!

The piddle cleaning solution says to soak up said piddle with a towel before applying product.

Wall-to-wall piddle pads don’t prevent all piddles. And so at said piddles we throw in the towel.

Alas. Love the old gal. We’ll miss her when she’s gone, but towels will live another day for being thrown.


Your prompt for #JusJoJan the 21st and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “count on it.” Use the phrase “count on it” somewhere in your post. Enjoy!

Just kidding 😂

I hate to be a Debbie Downer but it seems that every time I start to understand what I’m doing with these Toe-up Two At A Time Socks 🧦, I lose my place and have to tink back to the mistake. Or frog the whole thing. I can count on it! But the other thing I’m learning is that I can count on getting better with this project.

Today I was knitting along, watching Warehouse 13 on FreeVee. Suddenly, I realize that I’m using the wrong working yarn, the strand for the other sock. Ugh! What a mess trying to get out of that one. Lesson learned? Watch which yarn strand I’m working with. That can save time retracing my knitting steps.


Your prompt for #JusJoJan the 14th and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “once upon a time.” Start your post with “Once upon a time,” then write whatever comes to you, whether it be fact or fiction. Have fun!

So, here we go…

Once upon a time, when people were kind, there was a bully. But kindness and blah, blah, blah.

What my stream is taking me to my knitting. I didn’t get to do my Finishing Friday. And my knitting is calling loudly, almost like a bully.

So

No, this is not a bra. Unless, as my hubby called it, a foot bra. Right. Toes for a pair of socks. Frogged a few times. I will probably need to frog again as the ChiaoGoo red-lace circulars are too short. So I bought a longer cable but there were no ChiaoGoos. If I can figure out how to load the project on my new Knitters’ Pride Royale Circular Needles. Size 8 like what the toes are on. But the new cable is 45″.
These toe-bras were made on size 1 40″ ChiaoGoo Circular Needles. Too small for the worsted weight Caron Jumbo. It was killing my hands to work this tight. So frogged, again. Learning to make Toe-up, 2 At a Time socks is complicated. Finding a proper pattern amid all the YouTube tutorials is tough. So I’m learning as I go with many frogs.

My newest try (just frogged again within the hour). These on my second set of Knitters’ Pride Royale Circular Needles, size 8, 45″ cord. I found my cast-on too long at 20. So I’ll start the next pair with Judy’s Magic Cast-on. Let’s try 16. Then the toe won’t look so boxy.

Just a quick review of the Knitters’Pride cords. They are so tightly coiled they are hard to work with. After research, I learned to steam or heat the cords. That helped the coiling, but they are not nearly as flexible as the ChiaoGoo red-lace circulars. But maybe with a little practice I’ll get used to them.

Other knitting and loom knitting projects are coming along. They just aren’t the extreme challenge as the Tu2AAT socks.

And the dragon is coming along.

I’m loving him!

Okay, back to the tiny bras!

And they lived happily ever after.

The new modem, just out of the box, didn’t work. Despite following all the instructions, my husband could not get our internet up and running. It took hours on the phone to finally reach assistance.

End result? Our internet repairman will be out on Tuesday.

I hope I have enough data to do my computer tasks until then. Some things I can do okay on my phone, but reviews (and I have 3 to do) are impossible.

Please forgive my spotty online interactions. I’ll be back when I can.

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “out of the box.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “out of the box.” Enjoy!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cozy.’” Use it any way you like. Have fun!

I have always thought that Christmas Eve is the coziest day of the year.

Maybe I have to take that back. As a child it was full of angst. But my brothers and I had a system. We could look through the heater on the wall between the bedrooms area and the Christmas tree/living room area. Yep, saw the bikes one time.

Though most of the best presents didn’t come until after our bedtime.

But just before bed Dad would read us The Night Before Christmas. I loved the man in the kerchief and lady in the hat the narrator spoke of. Little did I know I would one day live where it would get cold enough to wear a hat to bed.

There was hot chocolate and candy canes. Sometimes we went to church. But mostly Dad would read the story of Mary and baby Jesus and tuck us in for the long winter’s nap. Oops. I just realized I had it backwards. It’s “With Ma in her kerchief and I in my hat.” Sorry about that.

Even when my kids were young I tried to follow the tradition. No dividing heater. Hot chocolate, fire in the window of the propane heater. Warm and full of love. The next day my folks would play Santa by bringing more gifts than my husband and I could possibly afford. I called my kids the richest poor kids around.

For us that quiet cozy night was preparing us for the loudest day possible.

So many memories. They bring the inner cozy with them.

Merry Christmas Eve. May it be full of cozy memories


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “start your post or one paragraph with the word ‘anyway.’” Bonus points if you start your post with “anyway” and regular points if you use it in a paragraph somewhere else in your post. Enjoy!

Anyway this was a lazy day. The cold had us hurting so I didn’t even knit. Disaster movies and Avatar and boring games on my Fire. Okay the sock got finished but it won’t fit who it was for. But I do know who it will fit. I think she will love two pair anyway.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday, dict


Per Linda:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dict.” Find a word that contains “dict” and use it in your post. Have fun!

Dictionaries have always been favorites for me. Encyclopedias, too. All those words that led to other words became an adventure. Sometimes it would lead to stories. I couldn’t help myself.

Other times with those books were not so predictable. Remember being told to go look it up when folks wouldn’t give you a simple answer? One crazy word that seemed a foreign language, led to word after word that made no sense. Each word seemed to contradict the definition of the other.

Still, I would find myself addicted to these tomes of words and knowledge.


Per Linda: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “twin/tween.” Use, “twin” or “tween” any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Enjoy!

Tween earth and sky

It’s you and I.

Twins of bone and blood.

Squishing toes in mud.

The rain and snow may fall,

But WE are one and all.

None better than the rest,

With love within the breast.


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “on your/my plate.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

And that is because we have had a lot on our plates for a long, long time!

Morning keeps breaking.
Clear beautiful. But COLD and the snow hasn’t melted a bit!

Per Linda: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “morning.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

It didn’t snow last year. At least not much. But this year Winter didn’t even allow Fall to happen.

Thank goodness Evening allows Morning.
