Color My World Please

unnamed-1unnamed-2It’s been a pretty gray few days around here.  If you have any thoughts on a Sun dance let me know!  Fireman and I needed a walk after dinner last night so off to the path we went.  My goodness those beavers have nearly felled those beautiful trees.  

I have good news!  The pollinators have begun to put their baby bees in the house with the tubes that I hung.  The paste has filled 3 of about 50 holes. It is a start.  I was so excited I went out and purchased another.  I hung it on the opposite side of the property.  Wheeeee.  

unnamed-3Off I went to the Needles N Pins yarn shoppe yesterday.  I found sale yarn to make Twiddle mitts. I wanted something colorful.  The ALANA is the wild skein. IT has a ton of stretch to it so I should be able to knit just fine with it.  

A woman asked what I was making, so I told her.  She’s going to make one. She said it may take her awhile but she had a grandmother with Alzheimers and she wanted to make one in her memory.   

The sun is going to come out at precisely 2:20 today when Allison arrives. You are my Sunshine sweetie.  You and Zach man.

  1. That is some great yarn! I’m working on a twiddle mitt right now. I’m having trouble thinking of things to put on it. I just know you’re going to have a wonderful time with Allison. She’s just the pick you up you need.
    Blessings, Betsy

    1. Kathy – found the pattern(s) [not sure what my problem was previously other than over-tired, etc.]. I would love to make at least one. Will ship to you.

  3. I was wondering what had taken a huge chunk out of that tree. Yes, after you said beavers, it was quite obvious that was what made those bites.

    I’m hoping you don’t mind ………but, Steve and I started volunteering at a local hospice yesterday. They are in need of knitted items. I’d like to make them for OUR hospice in honor of YOUR mom. I hope that is okay with you (instead of making the twiddle mitts).

    Have a great visit with Al. I know you are HER sunshine as well!

  4. It has rained all week here too. I taking a yarn cure today thanks to your Twiddle Mitts. It is fun to pull out all the wild and crazy stuff you have bought and could never find a project for and turn it into something useful.

  7. I found some yarn today for a muff, so hopefully I can cast on soon. The Wind River Mountains are glorious as their peaks are shining with new snow. Snow pack is now over 300% – unreal isn’t it!
