Don't You Just Hate That?

. . .Nearing completion of a project with a yarn that I am thoroughly enjoying, but I have no idea what it is.  It was bought at a LYS now out of business, and wound by them, but there are no labels in the wound skeins.  Don't people always put the labels in the wound skeins?  I want more and more of this yarn, but have no idea what it is!

. . .Was so stressed out by the oncoming season finale of "The Walking Dead" last week that I had to take extra anxiety medicine Sunday night.  Then they (the writers and producers) completely and totally LET.  ME.  DOWN.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan didn't let me down.  He was perfect.  But, writers and producers, really?


  1. JDM is on The Good Wife, too. I certainly wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers.

  2. I feel you about the yarn - even if I don't like it, I want to know what to avoid ...

    I am not a fan of The Walking Dead, but everyone else I know is, and they were pretty annoyed. The one character I do know is Carol, because my family claims I am just like her. Which I totally understand ... ;-)

  3. I lose labels all the time... Maybe I'll start a new notebook. Im in a notebook mood!

  4. Ack. That finale about killed me. And I was about to suggest JDM as a candidate in the next KH contest. Not sure I can since he became Negan.

Cold Shoulders

There were 589 stitches!  They were the beginning of this: It's the Superior Waves Shawl from Willow Yarns.  This is one of the kits Kathy was asking about the other day.
Speaking of which, here are this week's questions: Sure sign of Springs: bugs.  Has anything bitten you yet? No, though the carpenter bees are back flying around the bench on the front porch. Do you knit for practice?  I don't mean for gauge;  for a stitch pattern? If I have, I don't remember. Have you tried One Touch Latte for your coffee? Not a coffee drinker. Have you seen or tried Persi laundry detergent? I'd never heard of it 'til now. When was the last time you wore one of your own handknits? Over the weekend --- some socks made from Noro.
If the waves shawl weren't keeping me busy enough, I'm also working on 28's Cousin 53.  I'm making it out of yarn that will turn purple when I wear it in the sun. What will they think of next?


Yesterday would have been my mother's 88th birthday.  I don't say that looking for sympathy --- it's just that the arithmetic surprised me.  Then I realized that next year, my husband would have been 70.  That is hard to get my mind around.
The shades-of-blue feather and fan shawl (the 589-stitcher) had to go into the "Maybe Another Day" file.  Somewhere along the way, I lost the pattern stitch and couldn't fix it without frogging way, way back.  It's irritated me to no end, but there really wasn't anything else to do.
Something occurred to me the other day.  If this is already being done, I didn't know, so I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder.  You know those cake/cocoa/cookie mixes in a jar? Why couldn't that be done with yarn "cakes"?  


Hooray;  baby giraffe has arrived! Next to his parents, he looks almost like a toy, but when you put him next to anything else, you realize his size.  He's already taller than me: 5'9".
There's a naming contest for him.  I submitted "Reveille," as his arrival trumpeted us all awake yesterday.  That came to me as I was tumbling names around in my head.  His sire's name is Oliver, which, backward --- revilo --- brought Reveille to mind.
Babies are also front and center knitting-wise.  Two people in my orbit are expecting --- one having a boy, the other a girl.  I'm going with basics just now --- burp cloths, wash cloths, etc.  There's a little time yet in both pregnancies, so there's time to decide on the fancier things.  This is my first knitwear model, now waiting to be a big brother.  Time does fly.
