About Me

My photo
Five years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Hearts Linked Together

My wonderful sister sent me this.

And this was on Meridian, on Christmas Eve. As was this. It’s been nearly a week, and I don’t remember how holiday-specific they were, only that I enjoyed them very much. I am not quite ready to put away the holiday stuff: not in my house, nor in my heart. Hope you enjoy them and/or find them full of useful ideas.

No Trainman last night, so I was able to knit without distraction. I have half a repeat [!!!] left on the Wollmeise sock and have wound up my two clashing balls of green Jitterbug. They are in the bag for tonight. Working title for those socks is Mean Green Jellybeans. We shall see if they live up to it.

Took about a dozen old VHS’s to Half Price Books last night and am almost to the point where I can hold all of my CD’s on one over-the-door rack and suspend the VHS’s below them and get rid of one of each type of rack. Right now I have the backs of two doors taken up with media; I would like to be able to reduce that to one. I also went through my DVD’s and pulled a handful of movies that I bought on close-out when the then-local Hollywood Video shut their doors. These are not the movies I go back to, over and over again. These are ones I bought because I hadn’t seen them in the theatre, and they were 3 for $10 or something equally ridiculous.

Did I tell you that last Saturday I used my gift card to buy a cookbook called One Potato, Two Potato? I’m an Idaho girl, even after thirty years in Texas. [Be true to your school, and all that.] Last night I bonded with one of the clerks at HPB; she is a new knitter and manages the crafts section. She told me that there was a copy of KnitLit over on the shelf.

Not anymore.

That’s it for this morning. I should have pictures of two red socks for you in tomorrow’s post, and also for the November Sockdown on Ravelry, and maybe something worth showing on the Mean Green Jellybeans.

FWIW, Knitlit the Third is the best of the three; they had way more submissions to choose from than the first, and it shows.

(Ahem. Yours truly might be in #3...)

I looked at the two Meridian links. Very nicely done. Speaking of worlds I know nothing of, LDS is one of them. Thanks.
