Beech down!

When you live in "the woods" or what used to be woods before the 60's. Our neighborhood is full of Oak and beech (mostly) trees that are 100+ feet tall. that means when a storm comes, they self-prune (which means they actually drop so many huge branches that our insurance companies hold their breath.

One of our beech trees dropped a bigggggggggggg branch, but there was no damage.


And yes, that is my mini-van. What of it?


I haven't had much time to be creative this week. A new Feather Duster has been knitted but not blocked. Hopefully soon on that.

I know i say this every year, but when does school start again? Our "still at home" kids are 17, 14, and 13. having three full size apes sitting around the house and hoovering out the refrigerator for 12 weeks seems long. But, still the best summer I can remember.

No tears today

At all. In fact, I have a photo of the sock yarn blankie to share. This is totally made up of sock yarn leftovers. Some of them have been gifted to me, and som were sent to me by the lovely and fabulous Cookie. If you don't read her blog, why the hell not . .

Which reminds me, why the heck didn't anyone tell me how AWESOME Sons of Anarchy is? Wow, it's so well written, and kind bullshit, but still SO enthralling.

But back to the sock yarn blanket. Basically, every once in awhile, I just knit a few rows of squares onto this blanket. And I did promise to go ahead and post a photo once in awhile.


it's the width of our King sized bed, and I hpoe to make it the length eventually. It's perfect football game knitting (and believe it or not, practice starts in less than a month!

I'm down to 26 rows on the Feather Duster (which I made WAY bigger than the pattern). Come back and see it!
