These Things Have Nothing in Common, Really

Sitting on the back porch working on this

I looked up and out at our enormous fig tree and saw this
very surprised face with arms raised in horror?  Jubilation?  Anticipation of a hug?

The large color was being made for one purpose, but I decided  I wanted to keep it for myself.  The color suddenly hit me one day as a butterscotch/caramel/buttery toffee kind of hue, and I wasn't willing to let it go.

Headaches have been really bad this week.  I've used everything from "regular" OTC pain relievers so homeopathy to compresses to vaporizers to Chinese herbs.  Nothing.  A couple of people have suggested I try CBD oil;  after a week like this, that becomes an extremely real possibility.


  1. I have heard CBD oil as a cure-all for many things (I guess that is why it is called a cure-all). Do you have allergies?

  2. I haven't tried it yet but I have friends who swear that acupuncture helps with migraines.

  3. OH those darn headaches. Im so sorry Kim . I have had stabbing head pains, and it happens when my bifocals are on and I'm knitting. I have an appt with the eye doc on wednesday. New script should help I hopE!
    I love what you are knitting

It's two sticks and a piece of string.  You have to stop and realize that occasionally.  And this is a simple slipped-stitch border. ...
