Every year Knit Michigan organizer, Joan, has an afghan knit from a variety of published sources for raffle. But next year it will be an original. Dozens of volunteers have come up with the most wonderful patterns. They will be compiled and sold as a booklet to raise extra money for the charity. My life […]

Laughter and Tears

Wed, 29 Apr 2009 20:34:28 +0000

So the snow is gone, but not necessarily the cold weather.  This month has seen incredibly warm days followed by extremely cold the next.  The temperature isn’t the only thing around here that is swinging between extremes. This month I was published for the first time in the summer edition of Love of Knitting!  It was […]

I heard that snow was arriving.  I dismissed that as complete nonsense.  It is April, the month of showers, the month before May’s flowers.  Ha!  Two days of this.  Although tomorrow is supposed to be the day it all melts away.  I’m keeping my guard up though.  The snow will probably try a sneak attack this weekend. […]

A Taste of Yarn

Fri, 20 Mar 2009 04:34:44 +0000

This week I have been stalkinglurking a Ravelry group waiting for an announcement. I have news but I have to wait for the announcement to share. Patience is not my middle name. Heck, it wasn’t even considered. To distract meyou from the waiting, let’s talk yarn. A few weeks back, I attended a yarn tasting […]

Sixth Sunday

Sun, 15 Feb 2009 12:09:36 +0000

I cannot believe I am going to show you this. This is my I’ll-get-around-to-this-on-the-sixth-Sunday-of-the-month pile. Also, known as the dear-knitting-gnomes-I-will-pay-anything-to-make-it-go-away pile. Somewhere in there are WIPS that whisper their sorry state of neglect to me at 2 AM. There is a design idea or two gone horribly wrong. Forgotten yarn adds their mantra to the […]

What Really Matters

Mon, 09 Feb 2009 00:06:35 +0000

I finished writing a post about when you aren’t sure if you’ll have a paycheck next week, you can’t help but want to spend money.  And then I read about Rachael’s husband who is one of the missing in Australia’s wildfires.  Suddenly my worries, seem so small.  If you are so inclined, please send a prayer […]

One Night or Two

Sun, 18 Jan 2009 19:00:31 +0000

It was supposed to be a night out with a friend to see Chorus Line and then return to my home for a shared bottle of Meeker.  One night became two because of the snow.  I couldn’t send her home with the weather we had yesterday.  I encouraged a trip to the yarn store but to let her travel the […]

Next week I will not be working.  For the first time in my life, it will not be my choice.  The cause, economic crisis, is scary.  However, I am trying to keep some perspective.  It is brief and temporary. My not working, the crisis remains to be seen.  There are others suffering much worse.  My situation may change […]

Great Beginning

Sat, 03 Jan 2009 22:27:16 +0000

My husband and I met the first minutes of the new year quietly without noise or celebration.  The last minutes of the first day were the exact opposite.  Those minutes were loud, full of laughter, and spent with friends from our wine club.   I cannot think of a better way to start a new calendar than […]

Only Looks Fancy

Lamb cutlets with Romesco – Food and Wine, August 2006 Lamb is an ingredient that is often experimented with in our home.  A hold over from my hubby’s many years in Australia.  So it was no surprise when I asked him to choose a new recipe to make that he found this one.  He received bonus points […]
