11/52 : 2017

Some weeks just meld into one day for me. I can’t remember specifics of anything, just dark, grey, rainy. But those kinds of weeks can be surprisingly productive inside the house. Socks were finished. Handspun was finished. Projects started and works in progress still progressing. Paper shuffling happened.

Finished and wound up:


Autumn Gold. 653 yards. I combined 4oz of Funky Carolina (my last, sadly) Falkland with an equal amount of fibre from Taylored Fibers in Washington. It is a blend of merino, alpaca and silk noils. Now the pattern search begins!

Finished and worn:


Diamond Rib Socks. My pattern, offered for free on Ravelry. Just click on “Free Patterns” tab at the top and the link will take you to the Ravelry pattern page.

Started and half-way there:

Peruvian Poncho. I’m kind of cringing at the colour combination as I’m going along, but that’s what I get for buying 7 skeins in different colours! I keep telling myself it will be a fun thing to wear and go with jeans and a white tee-shirt. Keep telling yourself, Kathleen.




I organized my music this week and weeded out things I’ll never play or that my kids will never play again. This prompted me to organize my paperwork in my office, put my printed patterns in a binder, put yarn away. It feels very good to get that done! I moved my fluting station to my office as well. This gives a little more room to move around the living room. I’m liking this set up for now.



This sweet daughter of ours had her birthday this week. We celebrated via FaceTime. Can’t wait to see her in the real-life this summer!




He’s always looking for a cozy lap to sit upon, especially if there is knitting in that lap. The more complicated the knitting, the more desirable the lap.


It’s not raining. Woohoo! I’m going to head out for a walk now and get some fresh air and vitD.

Have a good week!
