There Are Helpers Everywhere

As she has done more than once in the past, my wonderful Bridget has given me a way to blog without thinking too much.  (Like all else about me, my thinker is strained to the point of cracking.)

Bridget blogged about something called "Maker's May," which she had read about on Facebook via Stefanie Japel.  It's a question-a-day survey/meme/take-off point for those of us who make things.  Lay your eyes here:

Since I didn't learn about this until yesterday, I have a little catching up to do.

1.  I am KSDean.
2.  My newest completed creation is a hat for, coincidently, Bridget's Harry's Hundred.
3.  I sell on etsy.
4.  Currently in/on my workspace:
one dog
one cat
one computer
two books
two works in progress
one jar of Vaseline
one tape measure
one pair of scissors
one bottle of hand lotion
two remotes for the TV
one can of Dr Pepper

There!  All nice and caught up, and my thoughts distracted for a few minutes.


  1. This is so funny, I was thinking of doing this catch-up post for myself today or on the weekend! Great minds. :-)

    Oh you are the best with your contributions to Harry's Hundred. I like to think we'll hit the goal the way things are going ...

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"?  


I have been awake since 10 AM yesterday.  I have no idea why.  It resulted in lots, lots of knitting getting done overnight.  It has also resulted in my being alternately punchy and goofy.  What a day to have a therapy appointment.  At least I had the good sense to wear pretty boots:
There is all kinds of nervous conversation here about some possible snowflakes falling Friday or Saturday.  I have to go to the grocery store tomorrow anyway;  as long as there are a couple of gallons of milk in stock, things will be good here.
