What's On My Hooks, Needles, and Spindles:

Not yet finished:
The OHM Shawl by Michelle Miller .
On to the second color!

Margaret Dashwood Shawl--easy and fun in worsted weight:


Whacky Socks

One Row Lace Scarf...It goes like this:

K4 [YO, K2Tog, K2] to your preferred width. Go up 3 needle sizes from the standard size for your yarn weight, so I am using a US 5 for lace weight yarn. This has been posted on Ravelry by several different designers; one even tries to charge $3 for it!

Bears for the Mother Bear Project--my 13 bears in 2013 project continues with Bears 30-33. I am back on this project, as the 2 Knit Lit Chicks are still running their CAL/KAL!

Dizzy Blondes: 

I am finished with the Tour de Fleece goals!

1. Rashida the alpaca has been spun and plied and finished.
2. The CFR2012 colorway from Desert Vista Dyeworks is all spun up!
3. The bumps attacked by Blankets are spun and plied or waiting for plying:


4. The cinnamon brown alpaca from last year is spun and plied!


I will be getting a skeiner and yarn counter from WoodenSpinner on Etsy! It arrives this Monday!


Be a good winner. When you get what you want, you've won. Don't keep on pursuing the person you've had a victory over. Don't kick a person when they are down.

Put a Lid On It:
It's time to make cucumber pickles. And watermelon rind pickles. And melon pickles.

Aw Shoot!
Not this week, alas!

Something I Really Like:
