What's On My Hooks and Needles:

Mother Bear Project--the website, for info on making bears.



In Progress:

Zombie Socks: In the Deep Hue Sea yarn from The Yarnover Truck.

The Southwestern Entrelac Scarf--a few rows of love...

Knitting Group Scarf


The Gryffindor Vest
The OHM Shawl by Michelle Miller. No, I have neither finished not forgotten this one...
Eleanor Scarf--spun from Eleanor's undercoat and knitted in my favored checkerboard pattern.

My LYS: Creative Ewe Studios

Dizzy Blondes: 
A gift from the boss's boss of very thin, unspun fiber ebing spun on the Akerworks spindle.


Breathing revisited.

Put a Lid On It:

Instant Pot heaven.

Find millions of recipes on FB and on Pinterest. I am gemmadw on Pinterest and I even have a board dedicated to the IP now.
Aw Shoot!

Sort of stuck in a holding pattern...

Something I Really Like:

The Iwatch.

Buy a prettier band on Amazon for far less than Apple will sell you one.


Teaching a leftie how to knit...success! Stocking up on tea from Teavana, since it is going extinct. I spent 2 days at the PCIT conference at UCLA with my team. Improving the on-the-job culture at my job. The birthday tea party and the new tea cabinet in my department.


Dec 13-17: Anaheim for Evolutions Conference!

Eleanor hates the Instant Pot because I am paying so much attention to it, instead of to her. So she roosts on my spot on the old sofa to protest when I am using the pot.

Dear Dr Gemma, Yours was the first podcast I ever listened to. I found it through a pin on pinterest. I'm going to say it was 2013 since that is when I joined the CogKnitive group on Ravelry. I went back and listened to all the back episodes and have been listening ever since.

I jut wanted to say thank you. Through your podcast I discovered many others. (Cast On, The History of Rome, et al.) I have just started watching video podcasts this year Which is something I never thought I would do. I appreciate the time and effort that you make to produce each episode.
