 Comments are welcomed! Either comment here or go to our group on Ravelry.

Add yourself to our CogKNITive Listeners Map.

I have a YouTube channel "Doctor Gemma". Flash tips (1 minute or less) around surviving the pandemic and longer strategy discussions.

Buy Dr Gemma a Ko-Fi, if you're enjoying the podcast and feeling up to it. Remember that I am still working, though, so feel free to give the money to a charity instead.

There will NOT be a CFR (Cogknitive Fiber Retreat) this year.

I will NOT add you to any of my follower groups currently, due to robo-accounts. Please follow me here. You can contact me through our group on Ravelry or on this blog.

Warm Thanks Dept:

Kayknit and JT whose name I fear to mangle. Thanks to you both for your very generous gifts.

I miss the porch swing too!

What's On My Hooks and Needles:


Roving Rug #2—still using up the roving stash, but stalled as I ran out of rougher roving. But this led to the (re)discovery of my camelid stash and more coarse roving hidden in the bedroom closet.

Ordered: Desert Churros Rovings (Etsy) --a batt from ram Cimaron to finish this with a dashing silver stripe.

In Progress:

Really Pretty Socks—on the leg of sock #1, past the heel stitches
 Wild Lettuce Shawl: on the knitted on lace edging, but not yet at the midpoint
Twinface’s vest (restarted in smaller size) It’s now in the mail and heading her way!
Temperature Blanket—caught up and angling around in orange-yellows

Eyeing..the owl post sweater...or another Agnes without pockets

I’m currently wearing...  

Sweat. It's 90F right now.

My Three Favorite Resources:

Webs for supplies
Mimi's Needlebasket for supplies

Dizzy Blondes:  



Distress tolerance: Urge Surfing! Ride the wave!

Put a Lid On It:

Sun tea. buns. hard-boiled eggs

Aw Shoot!

30 minutes per day; gear from the bottom up:  Carrying food and oddments; carrying a phone. Belts and arm straps

Fluffy Books:

by Ray Bradbury

Jodi Taylor
Chronicles of St. Mary’s

Lady Sherlock series

Something I Really Like:

Eleanor update
