Finally


First and foremost my tummy has settled today.  And no freaky dreams.  I was a little scared to sleep, not knowing who I might have tea in dreamland with this time.    

The temps are dropping and I have found myself pulling up the extra blanket the last few nights. And this morning there were a few nasty white flakes in the air.  Luckily they quickly turned to rain.  I cuddled in for the day and knit on a new infinity scarf.  


Just a simple ribbed pattern in a nice soft yarn.  It's taking longer than I hoped as the yarn is not very thick but I probably have close to 2 feet knit.  Next time I make one I will use larger needles.  

And finally, I picked up the hook tonight.  I took Meg's advice and put away the rug that had me blocked and started a little snowman that I had quickly drawn up.  A fun, uncomplicated little guy


Ahh, feels good.   And while I was hooking I finally decided to see what all the fuss was about.  I watched my first ever episode of Duck Dynasty!   In fact, I watched 2 episodes.   Too funny.  I can see how people get addicted to it.   I can't say I'm addicted but it was shockingly entertaining. 

And lastly but certainly not least, don't forget to wear your poppy with pride tomorrow

  1. I am glad to see you hooking again and I am happy your tummy is feeling better. Enjoy Rememberance Day, I lived away from Canada for almost a dozen years and Rememberance Day was the thing I missed most as well as singing Oh Canada. I am thankful I get to the rememberance Day observations this year. Denise

  6. I'm glad that your tummy settled down. That infinity scarf looks so nice and warm. I was wondering what type of stitch it was until I looked closely and it looks like knit one purl one. It does look soft.

    Today I remember our brave soldiers who have bought our freedom with their life and sacrifices.

    Hugs,

  10. Glad you're feeling better and I love the snowman! I love a snowman better on a rug than on my yard! We are having snow now! My thanks to all who have served to keep our countries free and who are serving now. Have a good, healthy week!

  11. Hi Kim, I am wondering how wide you cut your wool for you snowman. Do you use recycled wool or do you purchase it all at Deanne's shop? (oh how I wish I was close to visit her shop!!) I use pretty much all recycled clothing for my wool but am beginning to think I want to dye to get more colour options but I have to admit I am a little scared of the whole process. I have done some "cooking" and using one colour to over dye other wool but I have no experience with dye really but I have so many ideas and not enough colours!! Makes me sad, I feel like the child who has the box of eight crayons while everyone else I read about in the hooking world has the big giant box of crayons you know the one with the built in sharpener. LOL
    Have a great day!

    1. Denise, I couldn't find your email address so I will answer here. Lately I have been using an 8 cut for almost everything. I get wool from both Deanne and Heavens to Betsy. I don't dye but I wish I did. Someday when I have the room to do it I will. It is exactly like the small box of crayons Lol
