The good/bad old days

Now I know we all have the horrid pictures of what we actually looked like back in the day as my daughter would say. But have you done this to yourself yet? I graduated in 1977 but this 1974 creation is pretty dang close to what I looked like at some point in high school.…

Big Thick Meaty

Well, maybe this should be titled Big Thick Wooly. Yep, that fits. I’ve been knitting endless lace for months now. So with a little dip in the temps I cast on the Aspenglo scarf. While in Memphis I bought two skeins of a nice butternut squash natural henna dyed wool. I combined it with the…

Endless

There is never enough time to do everything I want. There are endless projects I want to knit, books to read, places to visit, people to meet… Reading Anais Nin’s Diary over coffee at breakfast (while holding it at full arm’s stretch because I left my reading glasses in my knitting bag) I want to…

Dazed and Confused

No – I’m not writing about our first glimpse of Matthew McConaughey or reliving my horrid high school days.
