Welcome to Episode 142!

Stuff and Junk


Housework? The carrots and radishes I planted are starting to show up. It looks like I may have to replant the carrots though, they are sitting all around the edge of the earthbox. That can't be good
What the hay? 2nd lesson, got to meet my teacher, Libby. I rode Toby and while it was rough getting him to move, once he did it turned into a fun ride. Even got to canter him! A bit bouncy.

Twisted Strands Episode 141: The disorganized crafter


Welcome to Episode 141!

New Yarnz
Desert Vista Dyeworks self striping Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries. Fingering weight, lovely.
Someone mysteriously bought me a lovely skein of Knitivity Phydlbitz sock in Sensatorium. It's beautiful, thank you!

nothin'
Stuff and Junk

Jackass 3.5, I like it, mostly because of the male nudity and unabashed laughter of the gang there. 3 skeins, and I won't be telling you which of the above it's for.
The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer. Feh. It really wasn't all that good, scary or anything. 1 skein!
Housework? I have been playing in the garden, and have planted carrots and radishes.
What the hay? First lesson of the year for me, and I'm still so sore, ugh. Cleo and I got along well, it was a fun but exhausting ride. Looking forward to more!

I've been watching a lot of NCIS while I'm stitching away. I have a small fictional character crush on Gibbs.
Housework? Mostly just laundry getting done.
With luck, the What the Hay? segment should be back if I can get the riding lesson schedule I want.

Twisted Strands Episode 139: The long, slow work in progress

Welcome to Episode 139!


Works in Progress:


Curse-breaker 9.0 by Michele DuNaier , size US H hook, ella rae lace merino, nearly done!
Button Yoke Cardigan by Sandi Prosser, using size 9 US circular needles and dpns, and Plymouth Encore worsted.
I’m still spinning the beautiful Loop batt that I purchased during Rhinebeck.

Stuff and Junk

I’ve watched two different things and completely forgot to mention them this episode. First off was a real stinker. Disaster Movie. I wouldn’t even give it one skein.
I also watched the mini-series Steven King’s The Shining. It was much more faithful to the book, naturally. I don’t know why I expect movies to follow a book exactly, I should just give that up. I would give this remake a 4 skein review.
Housework? Since I’ve been sick, there hasn’t been much cleaning done. Now that I’m feeling better, I hope to get some spring cleaning done!
With luck, the What the Hay? segment should be back if I can get the riding lesson schedule I want.
While grocery shopping, I found a copy of Nordic Knitting, 29 small projects for only 5 bucks. It has many pretty designs by one of my favorite designers, Martin Storey.
Linda Versaci is a lovely designer that I had the pleasure of meeting at Trillium Yarns a few weeks ago. Her designs feature textural stitches in sweaters that are traditional or differently shaped. She also has accessories amongst her designs. Check out her page- http://www.versaciknits.com
