Two OTN

A wee bit of knitting has been happening here in the wilderness – not much, just a wee bit. On little needles. With very thin yarn. First is a lovely design by Kay Meadors titled – get this – Lavender Fields. Yep. Kay handpainted the yarn I’m using based on the colors of our lavender…

Knit Out 2009

It was another great retreat at the 2009 Knit Out. Kudos to Keely, Sherry and the SWAK gang for incredible classes, great food, yummy yarn, and the style show.

A Poem for the Day

I’ve been to Sligo in Ireland, and Yeats grave. For me -our farm is my Innisfree. Lake Isle of Innisfreeby WB Yeats I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in…

Second Time Around

The new house has a revolving door apparently. It’s funny that we’ve had more visitors in the month that we’ve lived in the new place than any month we lived in Tulsa. First Hillarey and Lance visited for my birthday. We had a great time and I think the kids love the new place as…
