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

The OHM Shawl by Michelle Miller
Tutorial for the After-Thought Heel is here.

And here is where Gemma shows that she can be a bit of a dizzy blonde herself with afterthought heels. But I did learn to pick up stitches at each end of the waster yarn row BEFORE I pull out the waste yarn.
Brenda’s Shawl for CFR6: Winona Shawl

Done in yarn from Dizzy Blonde Studios:

Cooperative Press with Erica Hernandez was in the house!

Dizzy Blondes: 

Nothing here this week.


Yep. That's one of my favorite designers, Brenda Castiel, teaching us how to do buttonholes.

Reduce drama: Set limits and keep it simple.


Can you guess this year's theme? What would we do without Jamie and Tally/RK's Mom?

Put a Lid On It:
It's back to the recipe in the Ball Book for Watermelon Rind Pickles, as the ones from America's Test Kitchen just were too salty for me.


We are so lucky to get designer Michelle Miller/FickleKnitter back every year! Not to mention her great kids Maya and Dmitri.

Aw Shoot!

I got my run on at CFR6! I will try to enter my route on Runtastic for the rest of you to follow.We have an archery contingent at CFR! CFR7 will feature a bellydance class!

#cfr6 #eveninggatherings

Saturday evenings in the banqueting room are always wonderful!

Something I Really Like:

My designer buddies, including Erica Hernandez, Michelle Miller and Brenda Castiel! Hanging with creative people who dye and deign. And apps that help you find routes for weekend exercise when you are away from home. Localikki, Runtastic, RunKeeper, and Map My Walk/Run. Smart watch: Runtastic Orbit.

#100HappyDays Day 63 Whenever I feel blue in the next 363 days before CFR7, I will have pics such as this to remind me of the people who bring me joy each October.

Saturday evening with part of the gang at King of Siam.
