For the first time in 2-3 weeks I made it to the village. Three times snow/ice stopped me. One time I was there but it started snowing so hard I beat feet for home. Kalona is a nice town and has a motel and places to get food, but not someplace ... Read more
Worried - always am before teaching/performing/demonstrating

Stage fright - everyone gets it; even the pros. I knew today would be fine but I am always afraid I will forget something when I teach. Forget to tell the one thing that will make everything clear; mistake on the handout that causes too much co... Read more
One Knit At a Time

I cannot do it. I have different knits going for different reasons but looking at my UFO listing I realize that I have had knits on the needles and not touched them for over a year. Not something I am proud of. I list, plan, and start working on... Read more

Not really. We had a coupon for a new to the neighborhood restaurant, Red Ginger. Very good sushi and Japanese food. Dearly Beloved wanted an appetizer; I did not, knowing that an entrée also gets you a soup and salad. He ordered calamari which ... Read more
Swine cat strikes again
Monday, January 28, 2019      3 comments

With everything as cold as it is the cats do not even want to go in the garage to play and search for chipmunks. This ends up with Colby (Otherwise known as Swine Cat!) going a bit crazy every day. Today he was running around crashing into walls... Read more

Recently this has not happened to me as often as I would wish. (Going in too many directions.) The Kindness KAL sponsored by Knit Circus is an easy shawl to knit in January. They then donate to various places based on the total number of shawls ... Read more

This is not in reference to the scale or exercise but knitting. My sister requested a repeat of a cowl I knitted a couple of years ago. This time in a different color. After panicking about not finding/finding the pattern and yarn she liked... Read more
Long day
Thursday, January 10, 2019      3 comments

Today was a long day (a fun day, but long). I left the house at 8:15am to do errands before picking up a friend and her spinning wheel to spend the greater part of the day spinning in another friend's studio. After a late lunch I headed to ... Read more

I have a plastic box with handles, it is actually for hanging files, with attached lid that comes in very handy to use as a table, which holds my weaving items during the winter when I weave in the main building at the village. Usually I arrive,... Read more

Really should be called "helping a friend with setting up a loom". This was Friday's work: . The warp is a cotton/linen blend. I think it is 50/5... Read more

This was a cup from my Grandmother's kitchen that kept me going during my administrative leave in 2016. Even with that bad memory, the cup became my fa... Read more
