Episode 113: Scrapland

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

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.

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 :

What's On My Hooks and Needles:


Romjul 22 hat the first

Romjul Hat the second

In Progress:  

Lanesplitter Skirt- I’ve turned the first corner and I’m on the straight-away--32 inches along!

Don't Know Yet--a year in blocks-- onward! Seaming experiment — 5 bottom rows are seamed, joined, and ends are woven in. Seaming onward!

19 x 19 blocks! Romjul planning to seam.
18(19) squares=361 squares. And extras

Arranged, photographed, and clipped.

Wrapped in Tiny Chains crocheted cardigan- back is done. Use measurements, not gauge. On to the second front panel! Stalled for ASL class

Lady Eleanor Shawl-- The Next Big Thing. Progress in middle of skein 7/11. 32” long so far.

My Favorite Resources:

Still working on more merino from
3rd bobbin (sigh), but no progress
A fuzz ball of Minerva daily continues: 1 per day
Unboxing the new Nano—not yet


Interpersonal Strategies: know thyself: radical acceptance and rehearsal, consultation

Fluffy Books:

Something I Really Like: 

Electric lighter  it helps light candles and my teenager ignores it

Put a Lid on It:
Tea tastings:  continue. But a break for GERD.


ASL:   Readying myself for 102 in February. 5 words a day

Pupdate--  Captain is fine, no news

Hubsdate: finally healed!


Grand Canyon: June 5-9, 2023
