Last chance to enter the “What’s in a color?” contest—the deadline is midnight tonight!

I started a new pair of socks a couple weeks ago. The colorway fits the current Project Spectrum theme, and these socks will be gifted later this year. After completing two pairs in a row for myself, it was time for [...]

Old and New

I continue to gain yardage. 

First, I splurged a little bit after I received my income tax refund. I couldn’t resist the colors of that Fortissima (Mexico Evolution Silver), perfect for Project Spectrum. I hope I can start them next month!

What’s in a color? (Contest #4)

I’ve decided it’s time for a contest! (All the pictures in this post can be clicked to view a bigger copy.)

I recently completed a pair of socks with Trekking XXL in a lovely colorway, “76.” Well, I say that number leaves something to be desired. If a color number doesn’t have a corresponding name, [...]

At long last!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes last week. I’m mostly over my cold now. Strangely, it was mild (as in I didn’t need much medicine), but also was lingering and annoying. I was very glad to finally get a good night’s sleep!

I managed to finish three garter squares for Warm Up America, but [...]

February Progress

First, some excellent news! The Mermaid socks are finished! And I had just enough yarn to finish both toes (whew)! I’ll get pictures soon.

A chicken among the tulips

The MOA, as part of the ongoing Park in Bloom event series, held a “Largest Indoor Tulip Show” last month, January 19-27. I don’t know if it really is the largest indoor tulip show, but there were lots of tulips, and I gave Mom my camera to take pictures as we walked around the [...]
