Chitchat and the occasional in-depth analysis about fiber, knitting, spinning, crochet, cooking, feminism, self-image, and a modicum of personal blathering.

Two days late and several dollars short

I am feeling like absolute crap so I have nothing productive or interesting to say. I'm just doing a granny weatherwax style "I aten't dead" post. With pictures I guess.


Lost a big piece of the apple tree, right down the middle. We had a pretty good storm on Sunday, and the wind took out the middle of the tree. Bob (mostly) and I cut it up and Bob hauled it up to the woods.


I'm making my second pair of Kai Mei socks.


This is handspun. I'm currently turning the heel on sock #2 so it's going fast. They need to be done before the end of the month.



Turkeys in the yard. They come by strictly to torment Figment.


Other than that, status quo. And I'm happy about the Pittsburgh Penguins going to the Stanley Cup finals with hopefully a better result this year... GO PENS.

Wanted to stop by to say Go Pens!!

Your backyard is gorgeous, and I am envious of your knitting speed. It seems like I can't finish anything these days.

Lisa, those socks are anxious hockey knitting. That accounts for the speed. And thank you for the yard compliment-Bob has a lot of responsibility keeping it mowed and stuff now that I can't help him so I'll pass it on to him.
