Sad news


We lost this little guy this past weekend. It was really hard for us as he has been in my life for more than 13 years after a rescue. He was getting old, though and he had a good life here. I will miss you my little man.

Remember this skullcap?

I am starting a scarf and mittens to match. Susan.....since you were the lucky you need these? Man I love this hat. I think I will make another for myself as well. Is it snowing up there? Hoping to come up and get some skiing in.....even if it is on my face. I think I may still have ice burns on my face and ass from the last skiing adventure. ah live and you learn.....or not.

Tootin' My Own Horn

And not just my oboe.

I finally made it to the Texas State Fair last week. Let's just be clear here. My main purpose was to partake of this. Seriously. They will fry anything at this place. I am surprised they don't just hand out Plavix at the fair entrances. And was good and yes. I do feel guilty. :0)

Here are my Fair Entries this year. I finally finished them all the day before entering (finally, a plus for procrastination) and left them at the entry desk.

Season of Darkness and Winter Light.


Believe it or not...this is actually Birch. I think Romi had a similar experience with her fair entry being displayed. I feel your pain, Romi. It took me 30 minutes just to locate it. LOL Oh well. I am happy about it placing, certainly.

I have some other things on the needles, but they will be forthcoming. A wonderful cardigan I am test knitting you will LOVE and some socks I have finished test knitting. They were really fun as I learned some new techniques.
