Twisted Strands Episode 144: So much Wool Walk


Welcome to Episode 144!

Housework? Not much going on there.
Garden is doing ok, my radishes are coming up nicely.

What the hay? 4th lesson, this time I rode Toby. The last time I cantered, he was on the wrong lead and it felt awful. Unfortunately, he is a bit of a steamroller when he gets going, so I didn't get him back to the trot to change leads.
Movies and stuff
Jackass Presents “Bad Grandpa,” sadly it was an attempt at doing a show like Jackass but making it with a plot. 2 skeins, mostly for the last few minutes of the film.
In NYC, there is a Cat Cafe! You can adopt cats that live in a cute cafe

Twisted Strands Episode 143: Bunnies!


Welcome to Episode 142!


Works in Progress:

Fringe by Jessica Bolof using Tee-cake yarn from Skacel and size 13 needles.

Lil' Bunny Cupcake by Rachel Hoe
Stuff and Junk


Housework? I tilled the garden, it's still too cold in the mornings to plant any tender seedlings or seeds. I'm hoping to do that in the first weekend of May. The plumbers we used to use screwed up the installation of a cheap kitchen faucet, so we have new plumbers and a better quality faucet in the kitchen. I'm so glad it was fixed.

What the hay? 3rd lesson, this time I rode Cleo. It was a good lesson, and for some reason I feel more confident.
Movies and stuff
RIPD, I liked it, it was entertaining. 3 skeins!
Insidious 2, was a bunch of crap. 1 skein.
