My Knitting Buddy

Knitting with my sweet little dog by my side...

This is truly one of life's best simple pleasures.

Beyond Blessed



We're in hog heaven
with our new stainless steel appliances!

I've been planning on getting them for 7 years now
and just waiting for one of our old appliances to die..

But this summer Mr. Man said,
let's just get them now
and enjoy them that much longer.

Isn't he the best?!

And so we are.

I thought I was just getting a color change,
but we got several new bells and whistles
which I didn't anticipate.

Like a dishwasher that is so quiet
that we don't even know it's on!

Beyond blessed, I tell you.

Laceweight Circular Swatch

Well, I did it! 

I tried the Pi Shawl pattern
with laceweight yarn.

Isn’t it yummy?
It’s only about 6 inches across.

I must admit,
it was a bit fiddly on the DPNs,

but... look at the results.

Now I need a new laceweight project.

Today I've been a little LE
and I haven't really felt like myself all day.

Thank heavens I have
a knitting buddy by my side.

TGIF anyway!!

A True Raccoon Story

One day we saw a little baby raccoon all by himself.

There was no mama around anywhere.

This was very strange and most unusual.

Really, unheard of, for the age of this raccoon.

But the little baby was happy to just hang out and relax.

We were watching very closely, though…

Because we weren’t the only ones watching.

p.s.  Nothing bad happened that day.
           At least not on our watch.  (yikes!)
