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.

What's On My Hooks and Needles:



In Progress:

Really Pretty Socks—on the foot of sock #1
 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

Roving Rug #2—still using up the roving stash, but stalled as I ran out of rougher roving.. But the Desert Churros roving has arrived! On to the next stripe!

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

I’m currently wearing...  

On Hiatus until I need some knitware

My Three Favorite Resources:

Dizzy Blondes:  


Distress tolerance: Mindfulness : grounding skills: try one!
1. Describe something in great detail, using all 6 senses
2. Identify everything your 6 senses are experiencing in this moment
3. Army breathe or breathe in "here" Breathe out "now"
4. Move your body mindfully, such as a yoga pose done slowly and carefully

Put a Lid On It:

Keto BOBA!?!?

2 Tbsp beef gelatin
1 cup coffee or tea
Boba mold (silicon)

Heat liquid and add gelatin.
Over low heat, bring to boil while whisking.
Allow to thicken slightly.
Cool 4 minutes.
Spoon into mold or use syringe to put in mold.
Freeze 2 hours.

Put in thick, syrupy tea!

Boba mold (not the egg molds above)

I was very fortunate to meet Sherry Thomas, the author of the Charlotte Holmes series, at a book signing. She is an amazing and kind woman. She also wrote/write romance novels and, I believe, one YA series. Did you know that English is not her first language? She is Chinese and did not come to the U.S. until she was an older child (maybe 12?). There is an interview with her on the Smart Podcast Trashy Books podcast. It is several years old, but I wouldn't be surprised if she is interviewed in the fall when the next book is to published. I believe she said there would only be 10 books, but I may be wrong or she may have changed her mind.

Thank you for the podcast. I am checking out the Shelly Adina books.
