What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle:

Still in Progress:

The Pivot Shawl by FickleKnitter (Michelle Miller)...At about 180 stitches wide. But no pattern in the main body this time.


My Hitchin' a Ride Shawl in crochet, not worked on this week. An easy first shawl for new crocheters. I also recommend the Simple Scallops Shawl for an easy crocheted shawl.

My Noro Kuryon vest. Still on time-out, but new yarn purchased for armholes--chocolate brown this time. The yarn is sitting 0n the front porch as I type this.

Traveling Woman --3rd repeat of Chart A is done. Nothing new on this one.

The Holly Holiday Stocking for my twin. Working my way down the foot. Still. But in love with the Paton's worsted yearn.

Dizzy Blondes:

The wonderful alpaca fiber is actually on my drop spindle from YorkieSlave on Etsy. Thanks, Suri Gurls!

BeeMiceElf fiber in SWM in a luscious dark cherry semi-solid is now being Navajo-plied..

Done the second braid of the BME SW Merino in Grapevine.

4 oz. bump of Lisa Souza SWM in colorway Agua Fresca--done! On to the second bump, then plying together. A bit about its color(s).
Zarzuela Knits and Crochets


Mindfulness 101: Mindfulness of language

Something I Really Like: Ericah64's patterns! Erica Hernandez IRL.
Poached pears with homemade vanilla ice cream, Hershey's syrup, fresh whipping cream.

Put A  Lid On It: Penzeys for good spices--online and brick-and-mortar shops.


CFR updates. Buy your pattern(s) for the Mother Bear bear-making class right here.  PATTERNS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE CFR.

Mostly blended into the Hooks/Needles/Spindles section, really. Did I mention that we all got major sunbirns horsing around in the surf last weekend at Ventura's public beach?
