Who’s got the button?

Friday, February 25, 2011

More Stitches West pron, but instead of yarn pron it’s button pron. Since I’m getting more and more yarn support these days, buying yarn isn’t the priority that it used to be. Finding unique buttons seemed more important, especially with all the cardigans I have in mind. My favorite source for old buttons, The Button […]

More Stitches pron

Thursday, February 24, 2011

I left off the last post with sharing yarns that I bought and won. Now to the wonderful yarns that I was given to design with. Across the aisle from Kollage Yarns, and up a tiny piece was a booth that kept drawing me in, but was almost always full. I eventually had better luck, […]

Stitches, friends, yarn

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Stitches West. Where do I even start? It was wonderful. But then, it’s always wonderful: the friends, the yarn, the books, the yarn, the pajama party, the yarn, the prize I collected and donated to the pajama party, the Ravelry party, the yarn, the buttons, knickknacks, needles, and fleece. Oh, and the yarn. And the […]

We were in a fashion show

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Well, actually, it was one of Laura’s shawls, not us ;-)
One of the TNNA special interest groups always hosts a fashion show on the first night of the trade shows. Laura’s Evening Shawl was in the January fashion show and it got great response from the audience.

What you can’t really tell from the video is […]

Long Beach 2011 TNNA

Saturday, January 29, 2011

I did a little better with posting late in 2010, but January’s been, er, a bit slow in the way of blog posting, except for the one little blurb that Dave put out there for me (thanks, Dear!) the other day. (By the way, keep your eyes peeled for occasional bursts from Dave when the […]

Vacation knitting

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

I made an executive decision when planning what knitting projects to take to Las Vegas for our annual week of sitting on our respective butts, watching movies, reading, and knitting. Well, I did the knitting, Dave concentrated on the television. Anyway, a few days before we left we decided that we would not be taking […]

Anteaters are too cute for words

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Just saying.

Dave took this picture when we were at the zoo the other day. The Santa Ana Zoo is pretty small, as zoos go, but it’s a nice place. Once a month you can get in free if you can prove residency. We’d been meaning to go for ages, and finally made it last weekend. […]

Spanish Dancer, Kumasi, etc

Monday, July 12, 2010

I’ve been so, so bad about blogging. I know. You noticed, didn’t you? No word from me in ages. My excuse, and I’m sticking to it, is that I prepared to be away for a month, I was gone for a month, and I’ve been recovering from having been gone for a month. We were […]

Amaryllis, roses, bay, swatch

Monday, April 5, 2010

This morning it looked like this:

The edge of one petal is starting to unfurl. And just look at that color!
My Cecil Bruner roses have been putting on quite the show this year, too. I picked a few, put them in the tiny vase that Dad bought for me when I was a child, a special […]

Logo, aquarium, shawl

Thursday, April 1, 2010

I don’t know if you’ve noticed my attraction to blue lately: Capistrano, Hesperia, Denim Lace Tunic, Isola, and Basket Whip are five of the last six designs and they’re all blue. Maybe it has something to do with my mood. In my own defense, these projects weren’t all knit at the same time, quite a […]
