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


Yet another Simple Scallops Shawl....


Not yet finished:

Whacky Socks
On hold while I await more yarn from WEBS

The Boneyard Shawl --so now I want another...

Still in Progress:

Bears for the Mother Bear Project--my 13 bears in 2013 project continues with Bears 30-32.

2 Knit Lit Chicks are having a July KAL/CAL for Mother Bear Project! You can use bears you've made for my CAL/KAL to enter!

Dizzy Blondes:


I continue spinning the 12 oz of the fiber dyed for the last CFR by Desert Vista Dyeworks on my Sidekick, Perry:


I have plied and skeined up 165 yards from my own alpaca Rashida:

Manage procrastination by picking a limited time period daily when you can do the task you dread.

Put a Lid On It:
Inspect your gear for canning when the pickling season for cukes begins this month! And use the really hot weather to can those pickles that do not require a hot water bath, just a sterilized jar.

Something I Really Like:

Archery! And the current vogue of archery for girls!



CFR news, as always.

Did I mention I'm shooting archery again?

After a cute pic of my son, did you really think I'd leave out the cute picture of the puppy?
